What better way to celebrate childhood memories than with some custom designed boots! That is exactly what New Balance has teamed up with Arsenal star Bukayo Saka to create. It is a celebration of past and present, with special edition Furon v6+ boots designed in tribute to Saka’s incredible rise in the game as well as what he is currently doing on pitch.
The boots feature a custom colorway, courtesy of London artist, Feyi Badejo. Known for his innovative use of color and graphic style, Badejo’s palette created a unique backdrop for the Furons. In addition to the bespoke color application, Badejo has also created a piece of art to commemorate the England international’s first signature boots.
Both designs will incorporate Bukayo’s bespoke insignia – derived from his initials and his beloved number seven shirt, the new emblem incorporates red accents; a nod to the talented winger’s Little Chilli nickname and his off-field energy.
Speaking on the reveal Bukayo Saka said “I’m so happy to have my own design, it really is a dream come true. Working with New Balance and Feyi Badejo to turn my ideas into art was such a fun experience, I can’t wait to wear the boots we created together”.
