In yet another instance where the lines between sports become blurred, PUMA have launched the MVP Pack to coincide with basketball’s All-Star game this weekend, and the special edition MVP Pack will be worn by two of PUMA’s biggest basketball fans, Antoine Griezmann and Romelu Lukaku.
This year’s All-Star game will take place at the Spectrum Centre in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the design for the MVP pack is inspired by the local basketball franchise, with both the FUTURE and PUMA ONE boots featuring purple and orange with stars adorned on the outsoles, along with the letters "MVP". Another nice detail is the inclusion of the "MVP" lacing. It's the little details, see. Griezmann and Lukaku are both set to wear the boots on pitch in their fixtures during All-Star weekend, the Frenchman against Real Vallecano and the Belgian in the FA Cup clash with Chelsea on Monday night.
Both players share a tremendous passion and admiration for basketball, with its stars, culture, and fashion all having an influence on their respective lives. The Future wearing Antoine Griezmann often visits the US to catch live games, and he even has his very own basketball court in his garden.
Romelu Lukaku, who will be wearing the ONE, has been a fan of basketball since childhood and has been seen shooting hoops on numerous occasions with the likes of Thierry Henry and United teammate Paul Pogba.
An especially gifted procrastinator who occasionally uses words the in order correct.
