But let's go back in more detail on the 3 shoes that make up this pack.


Very anticipated, especially after the launch of the ACE 16 in January, the X 16 is entering the market in this new Mercury pack. For the occasion, adidas has made a premium model called X16 + PURECHAOS that is equipped with the advanced technology PURECUT SOCK SYSTEM, which covers the laces of the shoe in order to offer the players an ultimate fit while providing more aerodynamics . It can be noted that the X16 uses a bracelet similar to the adidas Primeknit 2.0, released in April 2015, with this unseen rising cut on the heel. Note that the X 16 will also be available with visible laces (therefore without the PURECUT SOCK SYSTEM layer) under the name X 16.1. The X 16 will be worn by Gareth Bale or Luis Suarez in the days to come.


Lionel Messi signature shoe, the Messi 16 + PUREAGILITY is also equipped with PURECUT SOCK SYSTEM technology, but also features the PUREAGILITY HEEL LINING technology, which offers an ultimate foot adjustment. The big novelty of the silo remains the presence of the small bracelet sewn Techfit, which is a kind of small sock that was already present on the X 15.1 for example.


To complete the pack, the non-removable ACE 16 + PURECONTROL that has been sifted in the beginning of 2016. Moreover, it is the complete range ACE 16 that was entitled to a makeover in chrome. The characteristics of the four shoes in the range remain identical to the previous colors. Paul Pogba, Mesut Özil or Dele Alli will be ambassadors of the silo during Euro 2016.
