Customised football boots are all the rage at the minute.
But Falcao’s effort to capture patriotism in a football boot has been left in the shadows by Clint Dempsey’s latest ‘cleat’.
With the help of Portuguese graffiti artist MrDheo and a few cans of spray paint, Dempsey’s new Nike Tiempos are the most American football boot the world has ever seen.
I teamed up with @clint_dempsey and @soundersfc and customized these @nike Tiempo which will fly to the USA tomorrow. They will be auctioned October 3rd and will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of King County. I love when I have the chance to help someone with my work so if you’re in Seattle you’re more than welcome to attend the auction and bid for these boots. Special thanks to Paul!
