Puma’s Tricks

 

Italian Mario Balotelli’s mismatched shoes are intentional. The left blue and right pink pair of shoes comes from German shoemaker Puma’s evoPOWER Tricks line, which pays homage to both the male and female genders in the world of sports.

Adidas’ Battlepack

Football’s highest paid player Argentinian Lionel Messi is leading the charge in wearing World Cup longtime sponsor Adidas’ boot line called Battlepack. The line comes in five designs, all bearing the trademark ‘disruptive’ black and white print that drew inspiration from the paving pattern of Rio de Janeiro’s famous Copacabana beach.

Motifs in tribal war paint from different cultures around the world also give the boots their battle-ready look. One of the designs, the Adizero f50 Messi featuring the pale blue of Argentina’s flag, was especially made for Messi.
