As a tribute to a hometown favourite Marco Reus, PUMA have designed a special edition Tricks version of their evoSPEED football boots. The two colours represent the duality of his personality – the man and the player.
PUMA designers sat down with attacking midfielder Reus to discuss what motivates and moves him in the world of football and beyond. He discussed “hope” and its impact on children around the world.
The colours are those of his current club, Borussia Dortmund. Proceeds from the sales of this product will support the Elterntreff Dortmund e . V. a hospital specialised in treating children with cancer in Dortmund as initiated by Marco.
The execution features a unique graphic on each side of the boot inspired by the BVB affiliated children’s charity Marco is particularly passionate about and reflects his sense of positivity.
On the medial side is an illustration made up of inspirational typography using words in many different languages, depicting an adult hand holding a child’s hand.
The lateral side features a subtle repeat pattern representing the 6000 children who are patients at Dortmund Hospital every year.
Only 400 pairs are available worldwide so what are you waiting for?
