adidas Cold Mode
Playing football during the freezing winter months can sometimes take the fun out of the beautiful game. The thought of playing in bitterly cold conditions and not being able to feel your toes can sometimes play on your mental ability to perform, but that could soon change with the introduction of the adidas Cold Mode pack.
Like the previous Spectral Mode release from adidas, each silo here adopts a strong colour that’ll be seen beyond the pitch and onto the streets, but we’ll touch on that later. The Predator, Nemeziz and X all feature, while the Copa unfortunately suffers the cold shoulder treatment with the modern classic just missing out. Check out all the details of this fresh pack below!
The technology was initially developed to serve the needs of the US Army in 1983, who sourced the help of PrimaLoft to produce a water-resistant alternative to goose down feathers. A synthetic, down-like material was the answer, providing enhanced warmth without bulk for efficient insulation, better breathability, and the capacity to repel water. Army endorsement often has an effect on the high street, and that was the case here as it sparked a chain reaction that has seen PrimaLoft feature on many products from major brands like The North Face, Patagonia, Helly Hansen and many, many more.
Tapping into this effective insight, adidas have given PrimaLoft full licence to engineer their technology into the upper of each silo in this collection, meaning insulating comfort and eradicating the feeling of the cold while also keeping feet dry.
With adidas introducing PrimaLoft for the Cold Mode pack, could this mean the end of NSG (Non-Stop Grip) technology? First seen on the earlier adidas ACE 16 models, then later transferred to the brand’s other silos, the concept was aimed at delivering consistent levels of grip on the ball in dry and wet weather conditions like Nike’s ACC (All Conditions Control) technology.
The PrimaLoft treatment doesn’t just stop at the boots though – now you’ll be able to walk the streets in comfort as well in the Cold Mode Tango apparel and trainer versions for the Predator, X and Nemeziz, which all feature the innovative insulation tech.
