Saka follows Harvey Elliott in getting his own signature editions, although the Arsenal man’s boots are slightly more personal in that they have been custom created and won’t be available for retail.

The boots feature a custom colourway, courtesy of London artist, Feyi Badejo. Known for his innovative use of colour and graphic style, Badejo’s palette created a unique backdrop for the Furons.  In addition to the bespoke colour application, Badejo has also created a piece of art to commemorate the England international’s first signature boots.

Both designs will incorporate Bukayo’s bespoke insignia – derived from his initials and his beloved number seven shirt, the new emblem incorporates red accents; a nod to the talented winger’s Little Chilli nickname and his off-field energy. 

Speaking on the reveal Bukayo Saka said “I’m so happy to have my own design, it really is a dream come true. Working with New Balance and Feyi Badejo to turn my ideas into art was such a fun experience, I can’t wait to wear the boots we created together”.
