Stella McCartney, adidas Create First-Ever Vegan Football Boot

Luis Torres

adidas Football continues to change the game through its prestigious Predator line. As we explored in our adidas Kickin’ It feature, the Predator is an icon and continues to showcase why.

The brand continued its prosperous partnership with fashion icon Stella McCartney, this time through the adidas Predator Freak. In conjunction with the help of Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, Stella McCartney and adidas have announced the first-ever 100% vegan adidas football boot. The ideation of the vegan boot was sparked in 202o as a part of adidas’ “The Huddle” series, where McCartney and Pogba first linked up.

“Since the start of my collaboration with adidas, we’ve continued to push the boundaries in high-fashion and performance wear, so it’s incredibly exciting to be expanding into the world of football with the superstar athlete Paul Pogba,” Stella McCartney said. “Creating with the planet in mind is core to the adidas by Stella McCartney partnership, and as the first adidas vegan football boot, the Predator Freak also uses part recycled materials. Working together on the design and bouncing ideas off each other was such a fun experience, and the boot perfectly fuses the world of fashion and football, showing how we can continue to create with the planet in mind.”

The culmination led to two versions: the Predator Freak P+ ($280), a laceless design with a sock-like fit; the P1 ($250), laced with a lower collar still engineered with a snug finish. The boots push the brand’s and McCartney’s signature ethos of challenging fashion and function. The Predator Freaks are decorated with leopard print, reflective graphics, and dotted with orange DEMONSKIN rubber spikes for improved ball control and finished with an iridescent-like ombré rainbow mirror metallic plate and heel logo.

Aside from its sustainable efforts, the Predators also speak to Pogba and his love for style and playing on the pitch with an unmatched bravado. Pogba played an integral role in developing the Predator Freak from its inception, and this iteration is the epitome of his style of play embedded in self-expression and purpose.

 “I am a footballer first and foremost, but I have a huge interest in fashion and design, and I’ve always wanted to explore this further,” Paul Pogba said. “This collaboration has been particularly special for me because I’ve been a fan of Stella McCartney’s work for a long time, so when we came together for ‘The Huddle’ last year and had this idea, it felt like the perfect opportunity to create something. It was in the middle of lockdown, and I was missing playing football so much, so it was an incredible feeling to be able to focus on something that combines my love for the game with my passion for style. The boots we created with adidas are bold and unique, and I can’t wait to wear them when I step onto the pitch.”

The Stella McCartney x adidas Predator collection releases starting on October 22 on and select retailers. The football boots will see a wider release starting on November 1. As always, our sneaker monitors and release day strategy will have members ready for drop day.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
