Tesla Football Shoes, Because You Can Never Have Too Much Tesla

Tesla doesn’t make football shoes, but what if it did? CEO Elon Musk is always game for some merchandising fun, so what if he also started selling football cleats?

They could look very much like product designer and CGI artist Hussain Almossaw imagined them. Almossaw used to work for Nike and Adidas, but he’s also a pretty well-known name in the automotive community, thanks to several concepts that went viral. Through his multi-disciplinary studio Mossawi Studios, he’s worked with Nike, Ogilvy & Mathers and EA Sports.

To put it simply, he knows his stuff.

The Tesla Football Shoes concept is his take on a possible future in which the EV maker would branch out into sportswear. Or, as he puts it, it “envision[s] the future of football and [has] a fun take on how certain themes and keywords can drive the design narrative and language of each boot.”

The shoe comes in minimalist white and a sleek silhouette, with electroluminescent fabric woven into the sides and the back, leading to a pulsating Tesla logo. The cleats themselves glow, which would make the shoe ideal for joggers who seem to prefer the loneliness of late or very early hours for their daily workout. Or, you know, for anyone looking to stand out from the crowd. Literally.

Almossaw cracks a joke about how these would also be the first “autonomous” sportshoes in the world, but later clarifies that he didn’t mean it in earnest. The glowing lights would be as technologically-advanced as these shoes would go. So, basically, they would be Teslas by name only.

Not that this has ever stopped Elon Musk. If the Tesla CEO can sell Teslaquila, Tesla Short Shorts or a Tesla surfboard, he might as well consider something like this, too. And, you just know it, if he ever did, it would sell out in a matter of minutes, just like every other Tesla-branded and apparently odd product that ever came out. Because the world can never have too much Tesla.
