Known for his style and helping of flair, former PSV and Manchester United attacker, Memphis Depay, is one of the most flamboyant players in the modern game.
And Under Armour have recognised this, giving the Dutchman a truly special pair of boots for him to sport whilst playing for Lyon out in Ligue 1. The winger is having a good season, recently notching a hat-trick and he opened the scoring this weekend in his side’s five-nil thrashing of rivals, Saint Etienne. But he’s now standing out even more thanks to these, ‘Dream Chaser’ boots.
On the heels of these new boots are striking golden Egyptian hieroglyphs that read out the the name, in question; ‘Memphis.’ The inspiration for this unique design comes from the tattoos on Depay’s body as UA, a growing force in football, provide a truly personalised touch for one of their biggest stars. A premium style is created by using gold and blues with the designers stating that the gold symbolizes courage and the turquoise stands for Depay’s energy and determination.
It’s up to Memphis, himself now to live up to the pressure that comes with these golden footwear. But, with the self-confidence he has, typified by stylish additions to his persona like these Under Armour boots, Depay won’t have any fear in doing just that.
