The Adidas Knitted Football Boot

Knitting and football - two past-times about as far removed from one another as you could imagine, right? Not for much longer.

That’s because Adidas have just announced a revolutionary new boot: the Samba Primeknit, a first-of-its-kind piece of footballing footwear crafted from a single piece of yarn which has been treated for water resistance.

Intrigued? Designed for the responsiveness you’d have playing bare foot, along with the strength and durability you need against bad weather and bad tackles alike, the makers have specially weaved this yarn into different zones, the weight of the material reflecting different control from various parts of the foot.

Furthermore, the boot’s one-piece upper element is constructed without any material wastage, making it the most sustainable major football boot ever created.

Following hot on the shiny heels of other big tech mod-cons - Micoach microchip, Sprintframe outsole technology on the recent Adizero IV boot (the same frame has been used on this one) - the Samba Primeknit marks another bold, innovative and eco-friendly step for the German sports manufacturer.

And as you can see from the image of Liverpool and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez using the boots with the forthcoming World Cup ball (above), expect the Premier League's leading goal-getter to don the boots at some point himself.

As for you, well you'll able to pick a pair up from the Adidas online store from March 17 for the price of £220. Certainly better than any effort your Nan would rustle up.
