Luis Suarez to Wear First Knitted Football Boot
Adidas Media Release

From simple beginnings, when players were weighed down with heavy leather boots, the footwear worn by footballers has come a long way.

Great technological advances have seen lighter boots produced over the years—now Adidas have launched the first that is knitted from heel to toe.

The new "Samba primeknit" is even waterproof and will be worn by Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Adidas Press Release

Markus Baumann, Senior VP for Global Football at Adidas, flagged up the benefits of the boot in a media release:

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 designed to allow for a bespoke fit for each player, making performance more intuitive and responsive than ever before.

If you fancy wearing the same boots as Suarez, it will set you back £250.
