This weekend will see Memphis Depay launch a brand new signature pair of Spotlight FG boots, “The Dream Chaser.” Under Armour has again teamed up with the Lyon star to create a unique boot which encompasses all of Memphis’ unique traits; his style, creativity and passion for football and life as a whole.
Featuring striking gold Egyptian hieroglyphics on the heel that spells the name Memphis, this unique designs inspiration came directly from the Egyptian tattoos on Depay’s body. He has always chased his dreams, both on and off the pitch, and these boots are a celebration of the character and ambition demonstrated as a young athlete.
You have to dream big to reach your goals in life, as nothing comes to you without hard work and belief. When I was 16 years old, I got the ‘Dream Chaser’ tattoo across my chest and since then, I have always tried to take that mindset into my life and my football. These boots feel great to play in and their design really reflects my personality.”
Each of the specific colors on the boot links to their premium style; the gold symbolizing courage and the turquoise highlights celebrating the energy and determination of Depay.

In terms of the actual boot silo, this is the second generation UA Spotlight release, designed with a zipper located down the lacing panel. “A ZIPPER!?!”, I hear you scream. Yes, you heard me correctly. Just off-center, along the region where a tongue would normally sit is the same style zip you would find on your winter jacket. In this instance, though, Under Armour has gone to extensive lengths testing a design that serves a functional purpose on the Spotlight.

In terms of retail, there are still a few days to wait before special edition pairs become available. The Dream Chaser Boots are priced at $230 and will be on sale starting Saturday 11th November.
