Pics: Feast your eyes on the Adidas Samba Primeknit, the world’s first ever knitted football boot

A knitted football boot is something that shouldn’t really work, but in this case, we think it does.

Adidas today announced the launch of the Adidas Samba Primeknit, the world’s first ever knitted football boot, following on from the recent launch of a similar running trainer of the same name.

Knitted from heel to toe, the upper part of the boot is constructed from a single piece of fabric, which cuts down on wastage and makes the Primeknit, according to Adidas at least, the “most sustainable” football boot they’ve ever produced.

We imagine that the boots will look a whole lot different when covered in shite from heel to toe at the end of a game on a mucky pitch at this time of year, but on first glance at least, we can’t help but be impressed by Adidas’ latest effort, which will be soon showcased by Luis Suarez amongst others.

The boots are due to be released on St. Patrick’s Day this year and will retail at approximately €300 for boot connoisseurs who like them enough to splash the cash.

So, what’s the verdict folks, yay or nay?
