Milestones – Adidas Samba Primeknit 2014

Adidas released alongside the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro 2014 a limited edition boot that became the first ever to have a 100% knitted upper. The boot is limited to 150 pairs in the world, and sold out in seconds. Still one of my best looking boots, as the upper is just amazing with the different colors of yarn.

Some interesting stats:

• The upper consists of 1938 meters of yarn.

• Around 137 829 stiches were made.

• The boot weights 165 grams.

Luis Suarez played a game for Liverpool in these Samba Primeknits in 2014.

Thank you for reading!

Adidas Primkenits

So wanted to take a picture with some of the Primeknits made by Adidas. I think the trend in football boots is going more and more to the knitted materials. It’s easy to shape, many color options, comfortable and relatively cheap to produce. I think most of us likes the knitted boots nowdays? 

So in this picture from the bottom to top:

  • Adidas Samba Primeknit, first ever knitted boot in Adidas football boot history. Released in 2014 alongside the World Cup in Rio. Only 150 pairs made globally!
  • Adidas Primeknit 2.0, the second generation of Primeknit. Released 2015 and limited to 10 000 pairs!
  • Adidas Ace16+ PureControl, the latest innovation from Adidas with knitted upper and laceless technology. Not a limited edition but sold out almost every where in couple of days!

Adidas Primeknit 2.0 Fg

Adidas Samba Primeknit “Legit vs. Replica”!

So I recently bought a pair of boots I have been after quait a while, Adidas Samba Primeknit Fg 1 of 150 pairs made. I also bought another pair, but they are replicas. I didn’t even know they made replicas of the Primeknits. 

So I took a look at them and compared them to the legit Primeknits, here’s what I found:

The innerlining and innersole is different. Also you can see that the figure of the knits in the toebox are different. A small colour difference  in the laces.

Next thing, it’s quait minor, but the figure of the knits on the outsole of the boot are slightly deifferent.

The Legit version got MiCoach locker with the cap in the soleplate, while replicas only have a simpel whole as the locker. 

After all I think they made a great economic version of the Primeknits, good job! Maybe they even last as long as the legit version if used!
