Things are moving fast at adidas HQ. You’d think the upcoming release of the adidas ACE 17 would be enough to keep them busy between now and the end of the year. Well, no, because the Three Stripes have one more party piece up their sleeves to cap off a groundbreaking year; say hello to adidas Glitch.

Pictures of the adidas Glitch - a unique concept boot designed with an interchangeable construction - have surfaced on Instagram in recent days with adidas using young professional and amateur London players to test the boots ahead of their official launch. One of the lucky few is Chelsea’s Charlie Colkett. Currently on loan at Bristol Rovers, the midfielder showed off his white and black pair ahead of putting them in to action against Peterborough United.

So what’s the story? Adidas Glitch football boots will bring new levels of customisation to a players game with an internal laceless Techfit cage construction and chassis. Form-fitting, interchangeable outer skins with a built in sole plate and pull tab will act as the second layer to the boot, connecting to the Techfit chassis. The Techfit construction is expected to come in two collar heights: a lower and mid-top model, as seen here with Colkett's blue design. The outer skin is expected to be available in both synthetic and leather models; not to mention an array of crazy, light reflecting visuals.

So what else is there to know at this point?  Well it’s safe to assume the adidas Glitch won’t disturb the adidas boot hierarchy, with X and ACE remaining as the headline silhouettes. Getting your feet into a pair will no doubt be a challenge, with suggestions adidas will introduce an exclusive invite-only method of buying a pair through a special app.

While we wait in anticipation for an official release, sit back and tip your hat to those mad folks at adidas for being crazy enough to give this a go. What a year.
