The fastest players on the planet
The Senior Product Manager of Adidas maintains that the initiative for these boots stems from the need that the fastest soccer players on the planet had for the footwear they use during the most intense matches.
“It was clear that the mental element of speed was just as important as the physical, which is why it was so important to create a boot that not only supported explosive movement, but also allowed players to get into a state of flow where the movement was fast and autonomous. The result is a boot that unlocks multi-dimensional speed for the fastest players on the planet,” said Aurnhammer.
The boot launch campaign includes a 90-second original movie from the creators of Rick and Morty, featuring the latest escapade of Earth’s favorite dimensional surfing duo and a selection of iconic players.
