High-end fashion: adidas unveils Yohji Yamamoto adizero F50

Never afraid to push the envelope, adidas teamed up with award-winning Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto to launch these limited edition yet radical Yohji Yamamoto adizero F50 cleats.

Inspired by Japan’s modern sci-fi culture, Yamamoto (the same mastermind behind adidas’ Y-3 brand) crafted these gaudy boots and incorporated imperial lion-dogs who guarded Japanese emperors who lived on sacred grounds during ancient times in the design.

Yamamoto explained:

“My inspiration is a mixture of ancient traditions and modern sci-fi from Japanese culture. I hope the inspiration of the boot harmonizes the players and gives them extra confidence to express themselves without any fear. People should feel free to express themselves. Just follow your own instinct.”

Bayern Munich defender David Alaba and Paris Saint-Germain’s Lucas Moura are just few of the world footballers that will wear the Yamamoto adizero F50 cleat this weekend:

These boots will not be easy to find however. Only 2,000 pairs will be made available globally, making these special boots an ultimate collectors item.

INCREDIBLE! HULK LINKED WITH BLUES MOVE

If David Alaba is not the best left back in the world right now, he’s surely well on his way. His gorgeous pass to Arjen Robben set up Bayern Munich’s first goal of the night against Barcelona at Camp Nou. Of course, it also helps that the ball landed at the feet of Robben, another man on a long list of Bayern’s world class players.

Robben’s goal was just the start of the German club’s crushing performance in Barca’s stadium. The 3-0 scoreline silenced tens of thousands of fans and sent them home bitterly disappointed as their side went out with a whimper, losing 7-0 across both legs.

But don’t forget, Barcelona is team full of world class players too, even without Lionel Messi. Look at Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas — they’re still one of the best teams in the world. This two-legged affair was more about Bayern being an absolute dominant force than it was Barca failing to even get on the score sheet.

However, any way you slice it, this is going to sting for a while in Spain.
