Artful Uniquely Crafted Footballs

Art of Football and Mitre Work Together on a Special Capsule

— May 28, 2021 — Lifestyle
London-based creative label Art of Football works in collaboration with sporty brand Mitre on a special collection of artful footballs. There are five designs in total and the collection is a reference to iconic artists and premium craftsmanship. Mitre was founded back in 1817 and has since developed a strong knowledge about high-quality footballs.

Now, it works together with Art of Football to create five footballs in familiar yet unique designs that celebrate iconic artists. The duo join forces to honor names such as Henri Matisse and Keith Haring. The balls are adorned in bespoke designs and feature applications such as painting, spray paints, and drawing, in the same color palette as the notable Mitre Ultimax 95 football.
