Behind the scenes – the Marco Reus evoSPEED PUMA Tricks

In a fitting tribute to a home town favourite and arguably one of the world’s most exciting players PUMA has designed a special edition of the evoSPEED Tricks.

PUMA designers sat down with offensive midfielder Marco 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. The two colours represent the duality of his personality – the man and the player.

Here’s some behind the scenes shot from what looks to be the scamping process.

A slice of detail that must be shared is that proceeds from the sales of this limited edition boot will support the Elterntreff Dortmund e . V. a hospital specialised in treating children with cancer in Dortmund as initiated by Marco. Serious kudos for that.

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.

The boot has design rooted to its core and it is a great addition to one hell of a collection, presented by PUMA in 2014.
