PUMA play their first big Future 18.1 card by whipping up a signature design for Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann. Introducing the Grizi Edition – to be worn by the man himself from this weekend onwards.

PUMA are looking seriously strong heading into a World Cup year, with an aggressive boot game backed by a tribe of tenacious talent. The recently released Future 18.1 silo will spearhead the brand into Russia 2018, and it'll be Antoine Griezmann pulling the strings in any which way he chooses on his new signature design.

The special edition PUMA Future 18.1 "Grizi" was designed with Antoine Griezmann's personal insight as the player met with PUMA designers at his home last year. With Griezmann perfectly representing the quick thinking, instinctual nature of the silo, it seems fitting that he should receive the first signature slice.

With full conceptual control over graphics and colour, Griezmann went to work to create his own disruptive, eye catching design. The first aspect vital to the design was the custom camo that appears on the upper and outsole of the boot. The camo was created from the silhouettes of his home, the city of Màcon, the department of Saône-et-Loire, the region of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté and of course France.

Secondly featuring across the heel area are the nicknames he has garnered on his journey to the top, Grizou, Tonie, Toinou, Le Petit Diable, El Pricipito and Antoine’s favourite and most famous, Grizi.

The wild cat’s eyes represent his hunters approach on the pitch, and disruptive and reflective claw mark graphics have also been applied to the Formstripe and CAT, visible as the cameras flash on the boots.

Finally, Griezmann launches his new logo on the boot, fierce and aggressive in its design, again reverting back to his hunter nature on the pitch, and a hidden no.7 within.
