With Lionel Messi's joining, Inter Miami CF has seen a surge in media attention and fan enthusiasm. While we’ve seen the club team up with BAPE for an apparel collection, a new footwear collaboration with the MLS’s official sponsor, adidas, has hit shelves and utilizes the Handball Spezial silhouette.
This exclusive adidas Handball Spezial is crafted with a suede upper in striking pink, the primary color of Inter Miami CF. Complementing the vibrant upper are black leather details adorning the Three Stripes, heel tab, and tongue tag. One of the most captivating features of the sneaker is the phrase "Libertad Para Soñar" (Freedom to Dream) embroidered on the lateral heel, embodying the aspirations and spirit of the team and its supporters. The tongue of the shoe proudly displays the Heron logo, symbolizing unity, and the inspirational phrase "In Order to Be Number 1, We Must Go 2gether.” This statement resonates deeply with the ethos of team spirit and collective effort.
The insole pays homage to the fans with a unique heartbeat graphic alongside the adidas logo, symbolizing the pulse of the passionate supporters. Underneath, the sneaker is rounded off with a classic white midsole and outsole, providing durability and comfort. This release is not just a sneaker but a celebration of soccer, community, and the dreams that fuel players and fans alike.
The Inter Miami CF x adidas Handball Spezial was released on December 5, 2023, through adidas online and will be exclusive to the German sportswear giant’s website. Available in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $110. Download the Sole Retriever mobile app to stay updated on the latest happenings in sneakers, streetwear, and more.
