“I want to end with a message to all young girls in the world: Believe in yourselves,” said the recently crowned Ballon d’Or winner Ada Hegerberg during her acceptance speech and her words didn’t go unnoticed. And the Lyon striker was honoured for her achievement in the best way possible.
Sports Manufacturing giants PUMA have dignified her triumph by presenting her a custom-made gold Puma One boots, with the message ‘Believe in yourself’ imprinted on it. Ada, who scored an impressive 31 goals in 29 games, took to Twitter and wrote, “Every girl has a dream, please believe in yourself! Thanks to Puma for supporting dreams.”
A three-time Champions League winner with Lyon, Ada’s Ballon d’Or crown was another feather in her already long list of achievements, which includes UEFA Best Women’s Player in Europe (2016) and the BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year trophy (2017).
Meanwhile, apart from the message that carries a significant importance, her name and the Norwegian flag has also been imprinted on one side. With a complete golden shimmer, the boot carries a black collar. Also, it is hard to see the 23-year-old wearing these boots on the field as it is highly expected the present would rather be showcased alongside her golden honour.
And yes, unlike Nike’s Mercurial Superfly VI Elite and Mercurial Vapor XII ‘Golden Touch’ for Luka Modric and Kylian Mbappe, this model will not be made available for sale.
