High fashion and football collide as sportswear giant adidas and fashion house Prada unveil their first joint football boot collection for the soccer field. A collaboration that fuses the innovation of adidas performance technologies with Prada’s premium fabrication and striking minimalist aesthetic, recoding iconic adidas silos via Prada’s Linea Rossa.
The collection kicks off with three adidas staples – the Predator Accuracy, the Copa Pure, and the X Crazyfast – each getting a dose of adidas Football for Prada magic. The result? A marriage of luxury materials and exquisite craftsmanship, all bearing design details that scream pure Prada, thus redefining the boundaries of sports luxe.
Each boot in the collection sports an upper and lining expertly crafted with fine leather and the bold red iconography of Linea Rossa. They all sit on a clean mono-colour black, white and silver base. The release has been given the nod of approval from football stars like Catarina Macario, Paulo Dybala, Rafael Leão, and Pedri, who are all set to don the boots on the pitch.
Now, here comes the tricky bit: scoring yourself a pair. The adidas Football for Prada collection is limited edition, available through the adidas CONFIRMED app from 22nd – 25th May 2023, as well as prada.com and selected Prada stores from the 25th of May 2023. Oh, and the cost is AUD$950, so do with that information what you will.
For the gamers among us, this collaboration transcends the physical to the digital realm with an exclusive kit for the FIFA 23 Ultimate Team video game – featuring animated in-game versions of a jersey and shorts in black and white. Let’s delve a little deeper into the collection, shall we?
First up is the adidas Football for Prada X Crazyfast. With a reinvented silhouette using premium leather and adidas Fusion Skin, the boot showcases Prada’s brand identity with triangular accents and the Linea Rossa red logo on the heel. Equipped with its innovative SPEEDFRAME technology, this boot is a marriage of style and performance.
Next is the Prada Copa Pure, which sports a shimmering silver leather upper synonymous with Prada, complete with a leather lace cover. The shoe is full leather, featuring Fusion Skin for optimal ball control, a traditional quilted effect for that trademark Copa touch, and a Torsion Frame Soleplate to keep players balanced on the pitch.
Rounding up the collection is the Prada Predator Accuracy. Wrapped in a nubuck finish and Fusion Skin, this boot is interrupted by the Prada Linea Rossa stripe on the tongue and heel. The outsole’s FACETFRAME delivers stability and dynamic traction, while soft ‘spikes’ optimise ball control and shooting accuracy.
The adidas and Prada collaboration isn’t just about a swanky pair of boots. It’s about rewriting the rules, pushing boundaries, and merging two worlds in new and exciting ways. And we’re here for it. Just look at some of the crazy shoe collabs we’ve covered recently on Man of Many:
