History of the Adidas AF 1.3 Primeknit Boots

In the history of footwear, there was a clear line that separates sneakers from the cleat category. Sneakers were characterized by suede or mesh upper with cushioned sole units, and without ankle or heel support. On the other hand, the cleats were designed with waterproof leather and a rugged rubber outsole.

Nowadays, the demand for sneaker-like cleats in the market reflects the paradigm shift in the consumer’s tastes when it comes to sports and lifestyle. Sneaker and cleat fusion followers are expected to grow in numbers in the coming days. Nike pioneered the half and half Sneakerboot category to deliver extreme-weather condition footwear. The brand kept hold of some of its famous models’ silhouettes and incorporated cleat features.

The Three Stripes tried to catch up and launched a compelling campaign that resembles the Sneakerboot line of Nike. They revealed the AF 1.3 Primeknit and the AF 1.4 Primeknit that functions for wet and cold outdoor conditions. They seamlessly combined comfort and aesthetics by using modernized shoe technologies.

Adidas took some elements from the classic running profile and incorporated some details inspired by the German Tactical Cleat called the GSG-9. They added the Dellinger webbing on the tough midsole to enhance the shock-absorbing capacity. The brand took a bold move by releasing an extra high-top profile AF 1.3 with Primeknit upper that has been treated with a waterproof coating.
