adidas F50 Yamamoto

adidas has collaborated with famed japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto to create this limited edition version of the F50. Inspired by ancient japanese culture, this lion dog robot design is not only visually striking but is also full of meaning. The lion dog is a symbol of protection and prosperity and Yamamoto added a robot aspect to merge ancient culture with modern technology. In his own words Yamamoto was aiming to create a “a guardian deity for victory, a sovereign creature that expresses the beginning of life and protects those playing on the field”

    Hello my name is nick Kraeuter and I think that these boots are the coolest F50s I have ever seen and I would love to wear a pair of these. I have always only ever gotten Adidas f50 cleats and these are by far the best. I am currently on the ODP regional team as well as the rush national team. I want to show off these beauty’s everywhere I go.

    Hello I have a pair of these Yamamotos bought from prodirect…these are great boots but there was an issue with the durability. The dribble tex(?) I think is the material that makes the shoe look handpainted, but after wearing them twice, I saw them peeling off…what should I do!?
