ADIDAS GOES RETRO: Adidas is offering the back and white Battle Pack collection of four different cleats, featuring prints that are supposed to pay homage to Brazil the only pop of color is the trademark three stripes in neon orange. An exception was made for Messi, who gets the star treatment with his own design and a bit of added Argentina blue on his F50s. "It's the biggest tournament on the biggest stage. It's win or go home. It's black or white. So that's why you see the black and white execution on the shoes," adidas merchandise manager Peter Hong said.
WHAT THE HECK? Puma is pushing the envelope by putting its athletes in one pink shoe and one blue shoe. Apparently, this will make it easier to tell which foot that player delivers goals with: Pink is right and blue is left. Look for Spain's Cesc Fabregas and Italy's Mario Balotelli in the boots. "I have to be honest, the first time I saw the Tricks boots, I thought the Puma guy was mad," Balotelli is quoted as saying. "But when I realized he wasn't, I was already excited."

It's a four year journey we've taken to really help our athletes reach their potential in what will be the biggest moment of their careers and lives."
