Shunned by major clubs for being too small as a young boy, Antoine Griezmann has achieved against all odds. From Màcon to the world, he has written his own FUTURE.
This special 'Grizi' Edition of the FUTURE was designed with Antoine Griezmann’s personal insight, a player that perfectly embodies the player of the FUTURE – quick thinking, instinctual and individual.
Last year Antoine Griezmann met with PUMA designers at his home. With full conceptual control over graphics and colour, he went to work to create his own disruptive, eye-catching design.
The first aspect vital to the design was the custom camo that appears on the upper and outsole of the boot. The camo was created from the silhouettes of his home the city of Màcon, the department of Saône-et-Loire, the region of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté and of course France.
Secondly featuring across the heel area are the nicknames he has garnered on his journey to the top, Grizou, Tonie, Toinou, Le Petit Diable, El Pricipito and Antoine’s favourite and most famous, Grizi.
It was important that the boot also represent the players’ ‘hunter’ instinct on pitch. Wild cat’s eyes gleam from the toe of the boot and disruptive, reflective claw mark graphics are used on the Formstripe and CAT to inspire Griezmann’s natural sixth sense.
Finally, Grizi launches his new logo on the boot, fierce and aggressive in its design, again reverting back to his hunter nature on the pitch, look out for the hidden no.7 within.
In addition to this limited Grizi edition FUTURE, he also put his stamp on the design of a range of football inspired streetwear, adorned with his custom camo, that includes a track-top, training pant and football jersey.
Antoine Griezmann will wear the GRIZI FUTURE 18.1 special edition during his next game.
