PUMA and BALR. follow the same path as we continue to push the boundaries of football beyond the pitch.”
The new Fall 2020 collection packs more football dreams than ever into premium materials and designs, featuring a subtle hexagonal pattern throughout, based on BALR.’s iconic branding, referencing the pattern found on footballs and football nets.
