Pure Class | Hector Bellerin Donates Unique Boots to Charity Foundation
He is just 20 years old. However, despite his young age, Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin has already an eye for the things happening off the pitch and is already an ambassador of the Heart 4 More Foundation. Logically, it's not just enough to partner up with a charity foundation; It's even more important to create one-of-a-kind stories that not only bring in money but also raise awareness for the charity organization. Therefore, the Arsenal defender came up with a pretty special idea.
Héctor Bellerín Donates Custom Boots to Heart 4 More Foundation
This is the one-of-a-kind Puma evoSPEED Hector Bellerin Boot, designed by British artist 'Virginia Ben'.
The sub-headline says it all. Hector Bellerin has donated a pair of Puma evoSPEED Boots to the Heart 4 More Foundation that were customized by well-known British artist 'Virginia Ben' (Instagram @FromVirginiaBen), who is customizing shoes & clothing for famous sporting and celebrity personalities that are exhibited in flagship stores across the UK.
The Puma evoSPEED Héctor Bellerin Edition are an off customization by Ben for Héctor, boasting a design is anything but shy. The unique Puma evoSPEED Boots for Hector Bellerin combine a unique hand-painted upper with contrasting black used for the Puma logos, the inner sole and the sole plate of the boots.
However, even though the boots feature exactly the same technologies as the regular edition of the Puma evoSPEED SL Leather, Hector Bellerín will not wear the unique cleats but directly donates them to the Heart 4 More Foundation, which will purchase cardiac screening equipment from the money the boots auction will bring in.
The auction to purchase Virginia Ben's Puma evoSPEED Bellerín Edition has already began on December 28, while it was also announced that Héctor Bellerín 'will personally sign the boots to the winner of the auction' (if they would like them signed).
Héctor said: "I’ve been following Ben on Instagram for a while now, and some of the customizations he does on clothing, trainers and even cars is crazy! I love my street art and thought it would be a good collaboration for the foundation and myself to raise some money with a unique product."
