I wanted to give back to the seven teams that have shaped me as football player. I wanted to give a boost to the youth teams in need of support and equipment to inspire them to follow their dreams. I wanted to pay tribute to the teams, players and fans who have been a part of my journey; Nacional, Groningen, Ajax, Liverpool, Barcelona, Madrid and Uruguay are all very close to my heart, so this was a special tribute to them and their communities.
500 goal FUTURE Z football boot
To celebrate Luis’s milestone achievement PUMA has also produced a special-edition 500 goal FUTURE Z football boot. The next-gen FUTURE Z features a striking design inspired by Luis’s proud Uruguayan heritage. The heel of the boot features a 500 goal motif with Luis’s famous ‘El Pistolero’ logo displayed across the medial side. Targets are showcased across the upper to signify Luis hitting the target 500 times and integrated into the footbed of the boot are the colors of each of the teams Luis has represented throughout his career.
Breaking the record is an individual honor, but I could never have achieved this feat alone. My teammates and the fans have been there with me every step of the way. Sport unites people and brings communities together. I hope the donation and the letter can bring a smile to people’s faces. Football has given me so much and I would like to give something back to the people.
