adidas has today unveiled the NUMBERSUP pack, which sees a gaming-inspired update for the headline X, PREDATOR and COPA franchises.
The boots are the first to be born from the ratings in EA SPORTS FIFA 22, motivating players to improve both on the pitch and in the game.
99 is the highest player rating possible and these boots are powered by that ambition. Blending the real and virtual worlds, the NUMBERSUP launch coincides with the EA PLAY early access trial for EA SPORTS FIFA 22, where players can experience the new title with greater innovation across every mode.
Each of the new boot pack designs are inspired by gaming culture, using bold and dynamic colourways and graphics to bring EA SPORTS FIFA 22 to life on the pitch. For the players that want next-level speed, the NUMBERSUP X SPEEDFLOW is the lightweight boot designed to reflect fast football. For those that want to improve their touch on the ball, the NUMBERSUP COPA SENSE takes ball feel to the next level. And for the players that want to dictate the game, the NUMBERSUP PREDATOR FREAK delivers supreme ball control.
The NUMBERSUP pack will be worn by some of adidas’ leading athletes such as Ferran Torres, Jude Bellingham, Lena Oberdorf, Joao Felix and Catarina Macario from September 22.
Artur Markowski, Senior Product Manager, adidas Football, said, “NUMBERSUP is an exciting new product that integrates the distinctive language of FIFA into the real world through a bold design that will stand out on the pitch. FIFA Ratings are a powerful motivation for players and 99 is as good as it gets. The new partnership with FIFA 22 will give virtual players the chance to boost their performance through a range of features that inspire every player to reach the top of their game. We hope the boots we’ve created will do the same for players on the pitch.”
