TUNiT 2 football boot from adidas
adidas has unveiled the TUNiT 2, the next generation of the revolutionary TUNiT football boot. It is the most technologically advanced boot ever made by adidas and builds on the success of the amazing TUNiT 1 - the world's first fully customisable football boot.
The TUNiT 2 boot (pronounced Tune-it) allows players to change their boots to suit their game, the pitch and the seasons.
The unique technology was introduced by adidas in the run-up to the World Cup and after extensive consultation with the players, it has been modified and enhanced. The boot is now completely seamless which allows for a better touch and the velcro cover for the laces gives a greater sweetspot for striking the ball.
The boot is made from a performance synthetic called adiwave. adiwave is both soft, light and durable and moulds perfectly to the shape of your foot. The styling on the boot has also been updated and looks sharper.
The boot is made up of three interchangeable components: the upper, the chassis and the studs. By mixing and matching the components the TUNiT can be transformed into a variety of different styles: a warm boot, a cool boot, a lightweight boot, a cushioned boot or a soft, hard or firm ground boot. In addition you can change the colours depending on your mood.
From December 2006 the TUNiT 2 will be available in three packs, the Start Pack, the Colour Pack and the Premium Pack:
The Start Pack includes: one pair of synthetic uppers, one pair of comfort chassis and three sets of studs (firm, hard and soft ground). The Start pack gives you three ways to assemble your shoe depending on the pitch conditions. RRP £120
The Colour Pack includes: two pairs of uppers (one synthetic and one ClimaCool), one pair of comfort chassis and three sets of studs (firm, hard and soft ground). This offers six ways to build your boot. RRP £180 and available at selected retail outlets.
The Premium Pack includes: three different pairs of uppers (two synthetic and one ClimaCool), two pairs of chassis (comfort and lightweight) and three sets of studs (firm, hard and soft ground). This offers 18 different configuration options. The Premium Pack retails at RRP £270 and is only available at selected retail outlets.
The TUNiT is the flagship product in the F50 range of football products, clothing and accessories. The adidas group of F50 players will be wearing TUNiT 2 from November 2006. This includes Jermain Defoe, Damien Duff, Arjen Robben, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Ashley Cole.
