adidas teams up with Marvel to bring us the X Men pack. In 2019, the two already gave us a collab boot in the form of the Spider-Man Nemeziz 19+ that followed the Spider-Man: Far From Home movie. The X Men pack includes both the laceless and laced Predator Freak and X Ghosted, with the former representing Wolverine and the latter Cyclops, both lifted from their animated adaptations.
The colourway of the said boots evokes memories of the animated series from the 90s. The Predator Freak has a black heel and collar, a yellow tongue and toe box, and a blue and yellow Controlframe soleplate, similar to the colour theme of the Wolverine costume of that era. It also has clear-cut references to Wolverine and X Men in the form of the blue brandings around the ankle and edge of the tongue, plus the red and black X logo on the rear. While the laceless Predator Freak remains solid-coloured with silver stripes, the laced model adds a comic strip-like graphic featuring the clawed mutant and blue adidas stripes on the upper.
Completing the Wolverine visuals on both Predator Freaks is the silver finish of the Demonskin rubber elements, representing the trademark Adamantium claws. After the avengers and Spiderman, it's now the turn of Scott Summers and Logan to be iconised by adidas football.
