The Japanese designer, who has already teamed up with Adidas in the past for the Y-3 line, has created an utterly fierce pair of football boots for the three-stripe brand.  Yamamoto has transformed the adizero F50 football boots into a pair of imperial lion-dogs, mythical Japanese creatures associated with the Imperial Era.  Professional soccer players will wear these exclusive Adidas boots in matches around the world this weekend, sporting a design that pays homage to Yohji Yamamoto’s Japanese ancestors.  Fans can look out for the yellow lion-dogs on the feet of Gyasi Zardes of LA Galaxy, Jonny Steele of New York Red Bulls, Lucas Moura of Paris Saint-Germainand Naohiro Ishikawa of FC Tokyo.  These adizero F50 boots are quite a bold fashion statement, in fiery yellow tones with contrasting black and brown details. The sides of the boots call to mind the manes of the mythical lion-dogs, who were believed to guard the throne of the Japanese emperors. Yamamoto has presented a detailed and surprisingly realistic rendition of the mythical beasts that is bound to intimidate opponents on the field.  The “Yohji Yamamoto adizero F50″ boots will be available from October 28 in Adidas stores. Price: €300 (around $415) per pair.
