Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is set to try out Adidas' new unique knitted boots when his side face Manchester United on March 16.
The Daily Mail reports that Suarez will try the new boots out a day before they go on general sale. The boots, priced at £220 are unique items, with only 150 made.
The boots combined the traditional Samba colours of gee, pink, blue and orange to form an upper layer that has been knitted from heel-to-toe.
The yarn is coated so that the boots are water resistant, and able to take on the English weather.
Adidas' senior vice president for global football, Markus Baumann, has rejected the idea that the boots could make players more liable to injury.
"Every Adidas product is developed with the player in mind and in particular, the needs of the player. By producing the world's first knitted football boot we have a brand new solution to the search for higher levels of comfort and flexibility."
The battle for World Cup popularity between boots has kicked off with Nike revealing their new Magista, which is said will revolutionise football. The Adidas boot is set to be adapted for the Champions League final before taking on Brazil in June.
Whether the new boot can end Suarez's goal drought or not remains to be seen. If they do, it might be an excuse for your granny to get her knitting needles out.
