VIDEO: Adidas release outrageous new adizero f50 boots

Published Add your comment

Adidas have revealed a limited edition pair of boots that will soon come to the market.

The boots - a far cry from the plain black leather type of old - sport a series of Japanese designs.

The man behind the boots is Yohji Yamamoto, a Japanese designer who is also the brains behind Adidas' Y-3 fashion brand.

Yamamoto said: “My inspiration is a mixture of ancient traditions and modern sci-fi from Japanese culture… I hope the inspiration of the boot harmonises the players and gives them extra confidence to express themselves without any fear.

"People should feel free to express themselves. Just follow your own instinct."

The design centres on a pair of imperial lion-dogs, creatures that are said to date back to times when they used to guard the emperors of Japan.

Fans of the Premier League may soon see the likes of Manchester United's Robin van Persie and Liverpool's Luis Suarez sporting the colourful footwear, as the pair are currently wearers of the regular f50 range.

Gareth Bale - also a wearer of f50's - may receive some funny looks from his new team-mates at Real Madrid should he decide to give Yamamoto's boots a try.

The lightweight boots are due to go on sale on Monday, with only 2000 pairs made available to buy.
