Huge Collar - Next-Gen Adidas Nemeziz 2018 World Cup Boots Released

The next-gen Adidas Nemeziz 18+ football boots were released today. They are part of the Adidas 'Energy Mode' 2018 World Cup boots collection.

The Adidas 2018 World Cup soccer cleat collection is dubbed the 'Energy Mode' pack. It includes this orange Nemeziz 18, an all-green Nemeziz Messi 18, a yellow Predator 18 and blue X 18.

This picture shows the next-gen Adidas Nemeziz 18+ World Cup cleat.

A very eye-catching look, the Adidas Nemeziz 18+ World Cup football boot edition is predominantly bright orange ('Zest') with a subtle zig-zag pattern and black iridescent 3 Stripes on the outstep.

Retaining the tape-inspired construction of its predecessor, the Adidas Nemeziz 18+ cleats feature a differently shaped, higher collar - this sets them apart from the 18.1, which is about the same height at the previous generation (17+ and 17.1) that debuted a year ago.

The higher collar of the boots is likely aimed at improving lockdown on the laceless model. Meanwhile, the sole plate hasn't undergone any changes at all from Adidas Nemeziz 17 to 18.
