Last year saw adidas release 'the world's first knitted football boot'; a milestone for the brand and innovative step into the future of adidas boot design. Introducing another game-changer - the adidas Primeknit 2.0 - billed as 'the best fitting football boot in the world'.

Don't be fooled, this is no ordinary 'next version' from its predecessor – it's a revolutionary fresh addition to the Primeknit family, bringing together two key adidas development projects – the original adidas Samba Primeknit boot, and the adidas Primeknit FS prototype – a concept boot released last year.

The adidas Primeknit FS gave the brand the ability to test and learn, ultimately leading to the adidas Primeknit 2.0 which comes enhanced with “compression fit” technology. An all-new compression tongue includes Lycra yarns designed to wrap around the midfoot area and create a maximum lockdown effect. The boot also features a new anatomical heel shape and design, following the natural shape of the back of the foot to provide optimum support.

The forefoot contains a knit structure specifically designed to aid control. The control knit structure offers 3D texture that combines ultimate ball control with unrivalled manoeuvrability and traction by way of the f50 adizero outsole.

Some description

The “outer shell” of the adidas Primeknit 2.0 comprises of a zoned knitted upper with a lightweight vacuum coated skin to protect the yarns and retain a soft surface, meaning the boot is at home in any weather, on any pitch. Just days on from the launch of adizero 99g, the adidas Primeknit 2.0 is the next installment from the 'Limited Collection' range - albeit with 10,000 pairs available globally.

The adidas Primeknit 2.0 will be grace the pitch for the first time competitively when Champions League quarter final second leg matches kick off later this week, with Barcelona's Luis Suarez the number one contender to slip into the boots for the first time.

The adidas Primeknit 2.0 boot is available from 22/04/15 at selected online stockists including Pro-Direct Soccer. Got something to add? Drop us a line in the comments.
