The first pictures of the Samba Primeknit football boot by adidas were unveiled this morning, and I'm going to say I love it. Somehow adidas have managed to maintain the support and comfort of a regular football boot, whilst creating the upper wholly out of knitted yarn, which means there is zero material wastage in production making it the most sustainable boot on the market. It's even water-resistant (as it would need to be) as each yarn has received a 'high precision coating'. It also brings all the qualities of the Primeknit in its lightness and moulded fit. Aesthetically, I think the mixed vibrancy of yarn is perfect for the context and the clean white branding is just a hell of a touch. Big thumbs up, I want a pair.
