Adidas and Bugatti have joined forces to auction off a limited number of soccer "boots" via the shoemakers' web3 platform, the companies announced.

"The exclusive new collection draws upon the characteristics that have come to define Bugatti, not only engineered for speed but created with a ‘Form Follows Performance’ design philosophy for the ultimate in ability," the companies said in a statement. "As with every Bugatti, they will remain rare and sought after by devoted collectors for years to come."
