Following on Nike and Puma, who both already unveiled their respective football boot collections for this summer's big international tournaments, Adidas this morning launched its own "Mercury Pack". Included in the Adidas Mercury soccer cleat collection are bold and striking paint jobs for the Ace, Messi and X, the latter two the first of a new generation, that combine a silver base with colorful accents.

For the first-ever paint job of the second-gen Adidas X boots, the Three Stripes combine a Silver Metallic base with striking Solar Red detailing, used for the heightened collar, as well as the lower part of the studs. Also available as Adidas X 16.1 and Adidas X 16.1 Leather.
ADIDAS ACE 16 - SILVER METALLIC / BLACK / SOLAR YELLOW
This is the Adidas Mercury Pack Ace 16+ PureControl cleat, set to be worn by Paul Pogba.
A similar approach is used for the Adidas Ace Copa America and Euro 2016 cleats: here, a garish yellow complements the metallic base, while the Adidas brandings are once again black. Also available as Adidas Ace 16+ Primeknit and Adidas Ace 16.1.
ADIDAS MESSI 16 - SILVER METALLIC / BLACK / SHOCK BLUE

Similar to the one of the very first Adidas Messi soccer boots, launched last September, the new Adidas Messi 16 boots are introduced with a colorway that combines a light base with blue details. Also available as Adidas Messi 16.1, for those who prefer a more traditional upper construction.
The boots from the Adidas Mercury Pack are already available to pre-order and will on sale on May 24.
