Samba Primeknit's second-skin design provides a barefoot playing experience.
Knitting is a skill that can produce more than just Christmas sweaters and socks, proven once again the release of the world’s first knitted football boot. The Adidas Samba Primeknit is just as sturdy as a traditional boot, creates less waste, and offers the comfort and responsiveness of playing barefoot.
The boot is limited edition and an features an upper section knitted from heel-to-toe that creates a bespoke second-skin design. Every single yarn also receives a high precision coating that guarantees water resistance even in the toughest of playing conditions. Advanced production techniques make it possible for the boot to be constructed without any wastage of material; which is hopefully the start of a more sustainable era for Adidas products.
