It’s pretty wild to think about the overflowing spectrum of soccer gear adidas is churning out. Case in point…The Glitch. More a movement than a boot, the interchangeable skin and chassis paradigm is not part of the Three-Stripes main stable. It is only available through an app with access codes acquired via social media. In spite of not receiving a massive corporate style push nor having a designated sponsored athlete, adidas continue to rapidly drop fresh skins for the Glitch with that “word-of-mouth/in-the-know” exclusivity. It goes against conventional methods but with the current state of brands taking notes from sneaker culture by putting out rare, unique and limited boots, there’s no time better than the present for the Glitch.
After dropping the boldly brazen “Mirage Pack” earlier this month, adidas unleash a more subtle glove similarly called “Mirageskin.” Featuring an almost entirely black upper with minimal yellow accents on the heel tab and sole plate, the skin features unique textures plus tech solely available within the “Mirageskin” iteration. That last part is why Glitch is maintaining steam, the skins aren’t just a cool new paintjob, but an actual change in tech, the latest is no different.
As of February 20th 2:54 PST there are #GLITCH codes available via twitter, they’re sure to go fast so check the link ASAP HERE
