Nike Magista And Adidas Primeknit FS World Cup Boots Revealed (PICTURES)


Nike and Adidas have released their new boots ahead of the summer World Cup, and both have literally put a sock in it.

Following the Adidas Samba primeknit's release last week, the German sportswear giant has revealed the Adidas primeknit FS: the world’s first all-in-one boot and sock hybrid.

Although Adidas' latest effort could cause some kit issues at the Brazil finals, the Nike one is cut shorter.

  • Pebax nylon sole plate with conical stud configuration for traction in all directions.
  • Flyknit upper for a more direct feel and improved ball control.
