Here is a wild collaboration between two of the most recognized German brands that sees the premium performance of adidas Copa mixed with the heritage of Porsche. The Porsche Design Sport 16 FG is the latest to be released from the Limited Collection as adidas continues to partner with the hottest brands to create unique products.
The initial inspiration for the boot came as a cross between the Porsche Design heritage and adidas most renowned product – the unique adidas Copa boot – showcasing the finest in shape, precision and style. The colorway was selected to create a distinctive, clean and premium product that would stay true to the history and philosophy of both adidas and Porsche Design.
The personalities of both brands are demonstrated by the balance of the three stripe adidas branding on the medial side and Porsche Design branding on the lateral side.
Jacques Chassaing, adidas Senior Design Director Porsche Design Sport by adidas, said:
Both brands have very similar values when it comes to creating each and every product. It is always about premium engineering to create the highest level of performance – whether that is on the pitch or on the road. This boot is a celebration of these values.
As with all Porsche Design creations, only the finest and highest quality materials were used when constructing the Sport 16 FG boot. The main material used throughout the boot is the full K Leather upper. This provides the highest level of precision to allow the perfect fit and comfort, whilst still maintaining a high level of performance. The black K Leather upper also includes a surface treatment to give it a unique satin metal effect, with the additional tan heel clip for aesthetics.
If you want a pair, there will be a “small number” of pairs available for retail. Adidas has told us that you will have to act fast if you want to secure a pair, but they never stated when or where they will be available in the US. Once we get some more concrete evidence, we will let you know – or you could just keep a check for pairs that pop up on adidas.com.
