The first football boots designed with a fully knitted upper from heel to toe, the revolutionary adidas Samba primeknit delivers a bespoke second-skin fit while retaining the strength of a conventional pair of football boots.
Fully knitted upper made from a single piece of yarn, the boot also has differing zones of tension for varying levels of flexibility and support that the athlete demands. The upper has also been treated with a sealant for water resistance.
Markus Baumann, Senior VP for Global Football at adidas:
"Every adidas product is developed with the player in mind and in particular, the needs of the player. By producing the world's first knitted football boot we have provided a brand new solution to the search for higher levels of comfort and flexibility.
"Primeknit is a further demonstration of our commitment to driving relentless innovation in football and is designed to allow for a bespoke fit for each player, making performance more intuitive and responsive than ever before. primeknit is a technology that is right at the heart of adidas innovation and we're excited about introducing this development into football."
the limited edition boots are the first to have an upper that is entirely knitted from heel-to-toe, providing a bespoke second-skin fit that retains the strength of a conventional pair of cleats. high levels of flexibility and comfort are provided via the one-piece knitted upper; the yarns used to construct 'primeknit' provide stability and strength equal to conventional boots. each yarn receives a high precision coating that guarantees water resistance even while playing on a wet pitch.
