If you’re a football fan or simply have a knack for collecting luxe items, then Paul Smith has just the thing you need! Created in close collaboration with American athletic firm- New Balance, the British Designer’s latest offering is a luxe football that is made from exquisite leather and a design aesthetic that can fail premium sports offerings of its kind by a large margin.
The latest item forms part of a larger collaboration between the American marquee and Paul Smith. It carries the designer’s signature stripes along with an embroidered NB logo stamped across its center in white. The hand-stitched football further features an innovative 18-panel configuration which helps to reduce drag and enhance performance and play. With awe-inspiring aesthetics and well-engineered design, the football is by far one of the best in the category as seen of late.
Introduced earlier in the month, the exclusive soccer ball isn’t the only thing on offer. There’s also a mini version for those wanting a mere display piece as also a regulation version made using an exclusive textured microfibre material instead of leather for those wanting to rough it out on the field. As for the original New Balance X Paul Smith striped wonder – it is priced at $175 (excluding shipping) and is currently available for purchase online.
