“By uniting these two iconic brands, we’ve once again pushed the boundaries of boot design to create something truly unique,” said Nick Craggs, General Manager and Senior Vice President at adidas Football.
Bugatti and adidas have joined forces to launch a limited-edition football boot, the adidas X Crazyfast Bugatti.
Produced in a limited run of just 99 pairs, the new boots are engineered for speed and lightness, and feature several Bugatti design flourishes.
The structure of X Crazyfast’s semi-transparent mono-mesh material on the mid-foot cage boasts a flash of Bugatti Blue, inspired by the colour of early Bugatti Grand Prix cars.
Elsewhere, the carbon fibre inlay in the boot’s tooling replicates the carbon fibre used on the car and the insignia of Ettore Bugatti features across the rear three-quarter of the boot.
“Bugatti is a brand renowned for its innovations and engineering ingenuity; always inspired by the vision of it creates incomparable automotive masterpieces,” said Wiebke Ståhl, Managing Director at Bugatti international.
“We share this relentless drive for perfection with adidas, who apply the same rigorous approach to their boots, with ever lighter and more effective designs. And in this collaboration , we celebrate this shared pioneering spirit in an authentic way, right down to the innovative method of releasing it to enthusiasts of both our brands.”
The boots will be auctioned through the adidas Collect Web 3 platform. The auction will run from November 8th to 11th. All winners will receive an exclusive digital shoebox which can be redeemed via adidas Collect for the complementary physical pair and digital twin.
Nick Craggs, General Manager and Senior Vice President at adidas Football, added: “X Crazyfast is meticulously crafted for speed and performance for a game that demands players move and react faster than ever.
“By uniting these two iconic brands, we’ve once again pushed the boundaries of boot design to create something truly unique that both looks incredible and helps players at all levels to be their best.”
