adidas this week unveiled the Carnaval Pack: a series of sleekly designed football boots inspired by Carnaval; the festival that brings millions of people to Brazil every year.
The limited edition boot (available from Monday March 17th) is the first football boot to have an upper that is knitted from heel-to-toe, providing a bespoke second-skin fit that retains the strength of a conventional boot.
The new adizero f50 Messi boots feature a sleek colour scheme of green, blue, pink, orange and white, along with the iconic adidas three stripes, and combines revolutionary technologies with the precision engineering befitting of a four-time Ballon d’Or winner.
The good stuff will be coming thick and fast from here on in, but this - a homage to Flamengo? - is a special little number from adidas.

'Designed by...' is headlined by a collaboration with IBWM favourite Stuart Roy Clarke and also features a contribution from Steve Welsh. It's available from today in COPA's Amsterdam flagship store and, naturally, at copafootball.com

With an enthusiasm for 80’s sportswear Dave Mayor has recently had little problem finding clothes similar to those his Dad used to sell in a small Manchester sports shop. To his disappointment, however, he found great difficulty getting hold of a sky blue and white bucket hat like he used to see on the Kippax when he was taken to games back then (his Mum minded the shop every other Saturday.)
With this in mind, he has had a range of this style of hat produced and is the founder of Bucket Headwear. Initially offering red and white and royal blue and white versions, Dave assures us that, to his own excitement, sky blue and white, amongst other colour schemes, will also be available in the New Year.
