Exclusive: Kasper Schmeichel’s new video game inspired boots


Foxes of Leicester take an exclusive look at Kasper Schmeichel’s new video game inspired boots. In addition, EA Sports tell us all about how the idea came from new game Anthem.

Adidas have teamed up with EA Sports and French boot-designer Pierre Navarro – who’s worked with footballers such as Antoine Griezmann, Romelu Lukaku, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Didier Drogba amongst others – to create a new design to be worn by Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Three other Premier League stars will sport the footwear in this weekend’s fixtures. They include: Tottenham Hotspur’s Erik Lamela, West Ham United’s Felipe Anderson and Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard. Lingard will wear his following reintroduction due to injury.

Foxes of Leicester now take an exclusive closer perusal, and education, of the very unique and different seeming football boots. This fascinating custom take comes from the new video game “Anthem”, from developers BioWare and game publishers Electronic Arts, and its “Javelin suit” feature.

Soccerbible explains the game further:

"“In the game, players customise an array of powered Javelin exosuits and team up to face a dangerous and ever-changing world through exploration and combat. The Javelin suits provide their wearers with superhuman capabilities and the players have been matched with the Javelins that reflect their own abilities.”"

Leicester City premiere

Fulham visit Leicester City’s King Power Stadium on Saturday and the Danish stopper will show of his fresh pair in-goal. Their name is the Adidas COPA Colossus. Inspiring; hopefully to the end of Schmeichel earning another clean sheet and prospectively improving his kicking distribution.
