News; Buy Adidas Samba Primeknit FG Football Solar Blue/White/Vivid Be

Published: Friday 18 September, 2015


We take a detailed look at the new adidas Samba primeknit boot.The world's leading sports brands are pioneering a football revolution with knitted footwear technology breaking down the barriers of conventional boot design. The adidas Samba primeknit is first out of the blocks, launching as 'the world's first knitted football boot'. Competition between adidas and Nike is at an all time high as both present their latest game-changing innovations. First under the spotlight is the three stripes with the Samba primeknit. 


 


Weighing in at 5.8ounces, this limited edition lightweight boot is set to be the first football boot to have an upper that is knitted from heel-to-toe, providing a completely new second-skin fit that retains the strength of a conventional boot. Primeknit employs just one yarn, knitting the entire upper – wrapping the shoe around the foot. Engineered stiffness controls stretch and support. And while traditional shoes are constructed from several pieces, overlay and underlay, the Primeknit reduces the amount of materials to a single knitted layer.


 


Inspired by the success and feedback of footballers wearing primeknit running shoes adidas set out to incorporate the technology into football. The main intention was to replicate the fit and enhance ball touch by using a barefoot or sock like experience - to create a boot that combines the comfort and responsiveness of playing barefoot with the protection of a traditional design. The limited edition release is the first football boot to have an upper that is knitted from heel-to-toe. While traditional football boots are constructed from several pieces, overlay and underlay, the Samba primeknit reduces the amount of materials to a single knitted layer that wraps softly around the foot, following the exact foot shape to offer a pure ball control.


 


New levels of flexibility and comfort are provided by the one-piece knitted upper of the boot and the yarns used to construct the Samba primeknit provide stability and strength equal to conventional boots. Yarn I hear you say. How is Yarn durable? Well, as you would expect that is a challenge Adidas challenged head-on and the result is each yarn receiving a high precision coating that guarantees water resistance even in the most challenging conditions. Adidas took them to pitches for testing between the months of September to December. Those months are known for the toughest conditions, extreme wetness & coldness. Adidas were in constant exchange with the players to gather their performance feedback and monitor the progress under sun shine, rain, wind and snow.


 


The Samba primeknit is the result of 2 years of development and testing, from initial design to lacing up players such as Suarez for feedback to launch. The boot was tested in the harshet winter months to stand up to wetness and coldness and adidas were in constant exchange with players to gather their performance feedback. 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.
