With the 2022 FIFA World Cup coming up just around the corner, adidas Japan has officially revealed its National Football Team collection. Designed by the legendary Tomoaki Nagao, more commonly known as Nigo, the soccer range is inspired by cherry blossoms as well as the traditional confection sakura mochi, which is a soft rice cake that's been a Japanese delicacy for thousands of years.
