Adidas creates customised footwear for six-toed heptathlete Swapna
The company took Swapna to their Athlete Services Lab in Herzogenaurach, Germany, for a detailed footwear analysis. Since the visit, the Adidas footwear specialists worked extensively on multiple prototypes and feedback from Swapna to arrive at a long-term solution for the six-toed athlete from Jaipalguri.
"I am excited to finally have these pairs. I have started training in these and I know from here on I can focus entirely on improving my performances without worrying about pain. The journey from here should get easier. I would like to thank the Adidas team in India and at the Athlete Services Lab for helping me with this solution," the heptathlete said in a statement.
"I never dreamt that I would have such unique pairs customised to my feet. I shall continue to work hard and keep moving towards my goal of winning honours for the country."
