A mix of cartoon style graphics and a fast paced “There Will Be Haters” video provide a very unique message. It is almost provides a don’t mess with us type vibe and the boot designs stay true to that. Along with the next generation adiZero f50, there is a Predator Instinct, 11pro and Nitrocharge released.
Everyone has their own style and required level of performance, and for that reason we bring you a rundown on each new boot in the Haters Pack. Your job now is to find the pair that suits you best!

If you were to match this design to a soccer team, there could only really be one – Bayern Munich! The Solar Red/Night Flash color combo is brash and very easy to spot. Following last year’s 20th anniversary of the iconic boot, the Predator has also been given a re-design. A newly designed super-soft upper provides all the benefits of leather and synthetic. The 3D engineered SL rubber zones, combined with the newly engineered gel pod, provide optimal grip on the ball and an enhanced capability for precision passing. The revolutionary control frame provides ultimate contact with the ball, with the transparent outsole giving you the magic touch and complete control.
The adidas adizero f50 is worn by some of the most prolific players in world football and as a result, adidas focused on a design that maximises speed and maneuverability. A revolutionary new upper design including a “ghost” graphic, sleek red color and new 3-Stripes branding on the heel ensures you will own the bragging rights on the pitch. A 3D dribbletex layer adds a dragon skin style appearance to the upper and is intended to allow for better speed dribbling in wet or dry conditions. The outsole has also had a complete re-design, with a new grip texture and stud configuration with a second level of traction on the forefoot base, inspired by sprint spikes.
From a visual perspective, this latest release could be the best we have seen to date in current 11pro iteration. Mixing a white upper with blue/black detailing is pretty classy. In terms of performance, they have received plenty of positive reviews especially when it comes to comfort and the “perfect fit”. A prime example is our 11pro review that just went up. The skeleton in the heel and forefoot offers a better fit and increased stability. The all-new comfort outsole also features a comfort frame which distributes pressure across the shoe, while new smaller studs provide perfect ground penetration. The leather upper provides an ultra-comfortable fit as well as optimum control.

We are currently on the second generation of the Nitrocharge series, and this edition has been re-energised with modified technology. The energy-sling positioning has been used alongside an increased area of protection pads and protection mesh to provide stability through play. Nitrocharge is the perfect boot for “The Engine”, box-to-box, all-action player.
For the Instinct, you said that only FC Bayern Munich can fit their jersey with the boot. Well, I feel that FC Barcelona's kit provides a better fit than Bayern Munich's. Red and Blue compared to Munich's Red and White.
