Following the highly anticipated US Tour of the English Premier League’s Chelsea Football Club to the US for “friendly” matches in summer 2009, one loyal, yet unexpected, fan’s enthusiasm has spurred the creation of a limited-edition shoe to celebrate the camaraderie of sport.
Long standing Chelsea FC fan, NBA All-Star Kevin Garnett was the inspiration behind the new CFC- themed adidas TS Commander LT. This limited edition shoe incorporates an iconic royal blue and white split suede upper, a laser etched soccer ball pattern on the midsole and CFC yellow accents, including the team’s traditional lion’s crest, embossed on the tongue.
Boston-based Bodega will offer an exclusive CFC tribute package consisting of the TS Commander LT x Kevin Garnett x Chelsea FC, a Celsea x FC Bodega team scarf and CFC replica jersey featuring Garnett’s name and number on the back. The package will be sold exclusively at Bodega for $275 starting August 29th.
The sneaker will also be released in other stores in the US, but only starting November 1rst.
Take a detailed look at the package after the jump.
