Primeknit 2.0 dubbed best fitting football boot in the world

German sports footwear giant adidas has today revealed a new football (soccer) boot made heel to toe from its revolutionary flat knitted Primeknit material, which it has dubbed ‘the best fitting soccer cleat in the world.’ The adidas Primeknit 2.0 is the latest update of the original Primeknit boot, launched and worn on field last season by Barcelona star by Luis Suarez.

The all-new Primeknit 2.0 model, the upper for which is produced on advanced flat knitting machines, brings together two key adidas innovation projects – the original Samba Primeknit boot, and the Primeknit FS (Footy Sock) prototype; which was a concept boot presented by adidas in 2014.

Based on the construction insights gained from the Primeknit FS, the Primeknit 2.0 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 cleat 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 which adidas says is specifically designed to aid control. The control knit structure offers 3D texture that aims to combine ultimate ball control with unrivalled manoeuvrability and traction by way of the f50 adizero outsole.

The outer shell of the 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 field, according to adidas.

Primeknit 2.0 is the latest product to be launched as part of the new adidas Soccer Limited Collection. Footwear items to be included in the range will be those released in super-limited quantities, which also showcase the best in adidas soccer innovation.

With just 10,000 pairs available globally, adidas says the boots will be “the hottest property on the field of play when a selection of the world's best players debut the cleats during UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Second Leg matches later this week.”

The limited edition adidas Primeknit 2.0 cleat is available to purchase from April 22 on adidas.com, adidas Sport Performance stores and select specialty retailers.
