There’s a growing number of boots that are being considered for the 2020 Olympic Games, with Adidas announcing this week that it will be making the “coconut” version of its “Futbol” footwear.
A number of high-profile companies, including Nike, Adidas and Reebok, are all expected to make a run at making their own “Futa” and “Furby” versions of the iconic boots.
Although these are typically made of synthetic leather, the “Coconut,” which has a similar shape to the Nike Air Foamposite, has been made in collaboration with a Dutch shoe company, Puma.
The brand is also expected to introduce a similar pair of “Fifa” versions, which could debut at the 2020 games.
This time around, however, the shoes will be made by Adidas’ subsidiary in China, LVMH.
It is not clear when Adidas will be ready to introduce its “Cobra” version, but it could be in the first quarter of 2020.
In 2020, Adidas will make more than 2,000 pairs of the boots, with a new version due in 2021.
