Just in time for an appearance on the grandest club stage of them all, the Predator Freak and X Ghosted receive Champions League Final updates in the form of the adidas ‘Showpiece’ pack, which is inspired by winning culture and the celebratory moments that are synonymous with the end of the season and international championships.
The domestic season is all but done and dusted, but before we turn our collective attention to the Euros and the Copa America there’s the small matter of the Europa League and Champions league finals to take care of. And ready for the glitz and glamour that this final push for a trophy brings, adidas have wrapped the Predator Freak and X Ghosted in shimmering silver coats as a nod to that ultimate sign of success.
The ‘Showpiece’ X Ghosted was spotted on the feet of Mo Salah in Liverpool’s last game of the season against Crystal Palace, and it, along with the Predator Freak, join a special signature edition Nemeziz for Leo Messi, which arrives in a contrasting gold look. Could it be the last ever look for the Nemeziz? Time will tell on that. Obviously neither Messi nor Salah will lineup in either European final, but the relevant players of Manchester United, Villareal, Manchester City and Chelsea should all be wearing the ‘Showpiece’ colourways.
Both the Predator Freak and X Ghosted arrive with silver base coats, bolstered by navy, red and black applications that flash throughout. For the Predator that shows largely through the Demonskin rubber spikes and the soleplate, while the X sees red colourings in the heel and Three Stripes, with blue on the stud tips.
