Another day and another set of quality releases from adidas that are gaining plenty of positive attention already, this one unveiled as the Stellar Pack. Inspired by the “light side of the moon”, both boots feature a White/Gold colorway and come in adidas’ X16+ PURECHAOS and Ace 16+ PURECONTROL silos.
The one thing that is uniquely different about this pack is the upper texture on PURECHAOS. adidas has introduced a star design, matching the concept of being Stellar. It adds a quality look to the white NON STOP GRIP finish upper.
We don’t have long to see both boots on pitch, with adidas players such as Ozil, Pogba, Suarez, Bale set to debut them on September 27th.
Both silos will be available later today at soccer.com. (*we will update when they are!)

Just as an additional sidenote on this release, customers at adidas’ flagship stores across Europe have already been the first to see the new Stellar pack through a ground-breaking in store Virtual Reality experience on PlayStation®VR. Visitors were not only the first to see the new boots, but were given an exclusive experience on the new PlayStation®VR headset before its release. The in store experience went live on September 21st and is the first time a football boot has been launched through a VR experience before its official release. The experience will continue until October 9th in flagship stores all over Europe including London, Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin, Paris and Milan. PlayStation®VR is the forthcoming Virtual Reality headset for PlayStation®4, launching globally on October 13th 2016.
