The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia has kicked off with a bang, and adidas are making the most of cup fever by unveiling fresh football-inspired footwear. With its fitting Soviet-sounding model name, the Sobakov represents one of the most futuristic street cleats we’ve seen.
There are elements of the wild Kamanda silhouette in there, with a bulbous gum sole unit providing the shoe’s focal point. The black upper gets a ribbed, almost padded finish, with wrap-around white Three Stripes flowing from the medial to the lateral side. The unique Three Stripe design has been borrowed from the classic Predator football cleat, made famous by the likes of David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane.
Be sure to check the adidas Sobakov once they drop at select adidas stockists on June 21.
