Manchester United footballer Paul Pogba has designed his very own vegan football boot. And it’s the first-ever vegan Predator Freak, in partnership with Adidas and Stella McCartney.

Paul Pogba vegan football boots

The athlete designed the shoe over lockdown when he was missing playing football. Then, he had a chat with sustainable fashion designer Stella McCartney and the idea was born.

‘Hearing how passionate [Pogba] was about fashion and learning how much we had in common really sparked the inspiration for co-creating this iconic boot’, McCartney said in a statement sent to PBN.

She added: “One comment that stuck with me was how fashion was part of his personality both on and off the pitch, so it was important for this to shine through in the design.”

As well as being vegan, the Predator Freak features recycled materials. And, it’s gender-neutral too.

‘Bold and unique’

Speaking on the launch, Pogba revealed it’s an ‘incredible feeling’ to combine his passion for football and style.

‘The boots we created with Adidas are bold and unique, and I can’t wait to wear them when I step onto the pitch’, he added. Additionally, it’s been ‘particularly special’ as Pogba is a big fan of Stella McCartney.

Customers can purchase the Predator Freak for €280 online, and in selected Adidas stores from November 1.
