Celebrating the nation of Wales, which will host this year’s UEFA Champions League final, adidas has released an inspired new Limited Collection boot range known as “Dragon Pack”. The latest boot drop features design elements of a striking dragon print, combined with the usual technical innovations. The pack consists of both the ACE and X ranges, which are adapted for on-pitch and cage silos.

The Dragon Pack ACE17+ PURECONTROL features the dragon design imagined in a black colorway. The midfoot through heel region features a scale pattern, with a CL Blue adding some dramatic contrast. The image above really doesn’t do justice to how vibrant the blue really is. Designed for flexibility and control, a 360 degree fully PRIMEKNIT upper ensures zero wear-in time and is protected by an ultra-thin NON STOP GRIP (NSG) film to provide increased levels of grip. adidas’ industry-defining BOOST technology is also featured, delivering an unrivaled energy return.
The Dragon Pack X16+ PURECHAOS features a wild Blue dragon graphic across a striking white upper. With gnarling teeth and flames coming from his mouth, this is a boot built for players who are ready to make a dramatic impact in game. A coating of NON STOP GRIP (NSG) film gives players unrivalled levels of control, with a SPRINTFRAME outsole offering stability during high-speed changes of direction. A PURECUT SOCK SYSTEM sees laces hidden under an upper layer for a pure first touch.
If you need something that is cage ready, check the ACE Tango 17+ PURECONTROL TF. This version features a PRIMEKNIT upper in CL Blue, where the dragon inspired print sits. A layer of NSG film on top helps provide close ball control. A stretchable layer of TECHFIT material optimizes comfort while a black EVA strip features above the heel’s BOOST to offer stability.
Of all boots in the collection, it is the X Tango 16+ PURECHAOS TF that features the most standout design. What looks like a graphic tattoo starts it sprawl across the forefoot, and works its way right around the heel. Performance wise, they feature the same NSG, SPRINT FRAME and PURECUT SOCK SYSTEM as the stadium version, with a gum finish on the outside to provide extra protection on the most challenging of surfaces.
