As part of the Battle Pack collection, adidas released a brand new version of the Nitrocharge 1.0, although they haven’t offered many details as to why the boot was modified. Even in the release details, there is no information that reflects the omission of the protective mesh upper that wrapped around the heel of the original release or the introduction of an all new forefoot upper design.
The energy-retaining Nitrocharge boot for the next generation of footballer is currently worn by the likes of Dani Alves and Javi Martinez. It is designed for ‘The Engine’, or the player who is always running, tackling and relentlessly powering his team throughout games.

We take a look at the new boot and detail the changes, as compared to the Samba Pack version released by adidas earlier this year. Check out the video below and let us know your answer to the final question; Battle Pack or Samba Pack?
Replacing the protective mesh with synthetic leather might offer better touch. More stitches and number of small pads in the forefoot might increase friction and control. I like the new version of nitrocharge, but not the colorway. Adidas tries to stand out on the field as much as possible.
There is a massive floor with the new nitrocharge im suprised more have not noticed it. Where the so called power band goes across on the battle pack version its laid over the top of the leather or synthetic so the band itself is useless as has no stretch to it. Normal nitro charges just have the band.
Incorrect – it runs across the same materials on both boots. If you look from a side angle at where it sits, you can clearly see the materials, including the Hybridtouch upper, running under the EnergySling. The difference is the fact the Battle Pack features a transparent EnergySling.
