The 2018 FIFA World Cup has kicked off but there is still time to put on your boots or trainers and head for Russia to immerse yourself in football fever. Equip yourself with a capsule collection that laces tradition with modernity by Paul Smith and New Balance.
Sir Paul adds his distinctive colours and stripes to the limited-edition collection, produced using the US footwear company’s advanced manufacturing techniques.
Keep up with the action in the New Balance x Paul Smith MiUK-One Football Boots, which have an upper crafted from soft kangaroo leather, and the British designer’s signature stripe accents on the insole, tongue and heel counter. MiUK-One, the first football boot by New Balance to be produced in its Flimby factory in Cumbria, the UK, is said to be a classic boot with a modern twist, aligning it with Paul Smith’s famous “classic with a twist” design philosophy.
If watching the games makes you want to kick a ball too, grab the FIFA Quality Pro Destroy Football, available in an all-over stripe design. After 90 minutes of sweating on the pitch, slip into an updated version of the New Balance 576 Made in the UK trainer, available with a black colourway for men and white for women. It is fashioned for striding out in comfort and style, with kangaroo leather uppers and stripe accents on the heel.
