On Wednesday, adidas announced that it will be selling shoes that measure up to a meter in height for its upcoming range of “high-end” footwear.
The shoes will be priced at US$300 to US$1,000 (around £300 to £1,200) depending on the model and the model’s size.
The range will be launched in August.
The company has previously announced it was considering making shoes with a width of 40cm or higher.
This will be the highest-priced pair of adidas shoes to be made by a manufacturer with the lowest price per gram, as the company would need to manufacture around 15 pairs for the range to sell as well.
However, the range’s height restrictions are not just for shoes.
The company has also stated that it is considering making footwear for children in the future, as it hopes to reduce the number of children who suffer from respiratory issues related to air pollution in developing countries.
While the shoes will not be available in the US, the adidas store in Tokyo will carry them in stock, and the shoes are being sold there.
A representative of the company did not confirm that the shoes would be sold in Japan.
It is also possible that the new adidas footwear will be sold at the adizero store in the United Kingdom, where the UK is one of the biggest buyers of adizeros worldwide.
In January, adizera announced that its footwear sales in the UK rose by 4.9 per cent last year, with an increase of 16 per cent in the footwear category.
