Graphic Designer Creates Chapecoense Special Edition Adidas Boots

Graphic Designer Creates Chapecoense Special Edition Adidas Boots

It's been just over three months since the devastating plane crash that involved Brazilian side Chapecoense before their scheduled Copa Sudamericana first leg final clash with Atletico Nacional.

A total of 71 people died in the tragedy, including 19 members of the Chapecoense first-team and coaching staff.

Tributes poured in following the sad turn of events and a number of charity matches have took place in aid of Chapecoense, who are forced to completely rebuild their team because of the disaster.

Someone has created some concept Chapecoense football boots as they have marked the three month anniversary of the crash by producing special boots which feature the Chapecoense colours.

Check them out here:

I'm sure you will agree that the Ace 17+ boots look very smart, but it is worth noting that they are just concept boots made by @footy_customs at present.

Here's hoping that Adidas can make these boots, with the proceeds going to Chapecoense - though it may be difficult as the club have a kit deal with Umbro.

However, Chapecoense have already been treated to a number of brilliant gestures.

They were awarded the Copa Sudamericana trophy by CONMEBOL, while EA Sports gave every player on FIFA Ultimate Team the Chapecoense kits and crest.

Just last month, Konami announced that as part of a new update on PES 2017 they had included the club's badge and a new ball in their honour.

Their press release read:

"KONAMI would like to express its deepest condolences to the family, friends and fans of those involved in the devastating incident in November 2016.

"In support of the Brazilian soccer club, Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. has made a donation to Chapecoense.

"In addition to this donation, KONAMI will also be including a Chapecoense's new club badge and a "ForçaChape" ball in the upcoming Data Pack 3.0 of "Winning Eleven 2017" (Overseas Title: "PES 2017 - Pro Evolution Soccer"), set to be released in February 9th, 2017.

"We sincerely hope that this donation will contribute to the rebuilding of the club and a swift return.

"

The next Brazilian Serie A league campaign begins on 7 May, though Chapecoense have been taking part in various other competitions and won their last game 1-0 when they beat Joinville in the Campeonato Catarinense.
