In a remarkable union of automotive and sportswear giants, Bugatti and adidas have joined forces to craft a limited edition masterpiece: the adidas X Crazyfast Bugatti football boot. These high-performance boots, designed with a profound emphasis on speed and innovation, will captivate sports enthusiasts and collectors alike.
The adidas X Crazyfast Bugatti boots, available in a limited run of just 99 pairs worldwide, are a testament to the fusion of Bugatti’s groundbreaking engineering and adidas’s unwavering commitment to performance. These boots incorporate Bugatti’s ‘Form Follows Performance’ design philosophy, mirroring their remarkable hyper sports cars in every step taken.
At the heart of the X Crazyfast boot is adidas’s revolutionary Speedframe soleplate technology, meticulously designed to offer both feather-light agility and unwavering support for rapid acceleration on the pitch. The Aerocage innovation and Aeropacity Speedskin materials work in tandem to provide optimal support and breathability, enhancing both speed and stability. The carbon fibre inlay in the boot’s tooling mirrors Bugatti’s automotive excellence.
The semi-transparent mono-mesh material on the mid-foot cage incorporates a touch of Bugatti Blue, a nod to the iconic early Bugatti Grand Prix cars. This touch serves as an instant identifier for enthusiasts, transcending a century of motorsport success.
The boots bear two significant phrases that encapsulate the ethos of both Bugatti and adidas: “Impossible is Nothing” signifies adidas’s relentless pursuit of performance, while “Create the Incomparable” represents Bugatti’s dedication to producing hyper sports cars that consistently set new standards. Ettore Bugatti’s timeless insignia graces the rear three-quarter of the boot, paying homage to the brand’s visionary founder.
The X Crazyfast Bugatti boots come in a distinctive box inspired by carbon fiber weaves, echoing the lightweight yet robust material used in Bugatti’s hyper sports cars.
To ensure global accessibility, the limited collection of 99 pairs will be auctioned on the adidas Collect Web 3 platform from November 8th to 11th. Winners will receive an exclusive digital shoebox, redeemable for both the physical pair and its digital counterpart. The auction, facilitated by cryptocurrency, offers users an on-ramp from traditional currency using MoonPay.
Wiebke Ståhl, Managing Director at Bugatti international, emphasised the alignment of both brands’ relentless pursuit of perfection. Nick Craggs, General Manager and Senior Vice President of adidas Football, spoke of the unique collaboration pushing the boundaries of boot design.
The much-anticipated Bugatti X Crazyfast boots are set to make their on-pitch debut in November 2023, exclusively worn by Rafael Leao and Karim Benzema.
