Chelsea is one of the few exceptions, so it’s interesting to see hear about Chelsea’s latest announcement today that it has partnered with Adidas to develop a basketball shoe, which comes with an exclusive scarf and Chelsea jersey.
The adidas TS Commander LT will available from August 29, 2009 exclusively from a Boston-based retailer named Bodega. They’ll offer an exclusive CFC (Chelsea Football Club) tribute package consisting of the TS Commander LT x KG x CFC, a CFC Bodega team scarf and CFC replica jersey featuring Garnett’s name and number on the back.
The limited edition shoe incorporates Chelsea’s traditional lion crest on the tongue of the shoe, and incorporate Chelsea’s iconic royal blue and white colors which are accented by yellow highlights.
