The UK rap star is dropping a London-inspired shoe.

Stormzy, the renowned U.K. grime artist, continues to leave his mark, this time in the world of soccer with his latest collaboration with Adidas. Recently, Stormzy unveiled his limited-edition boot, a special version of the iconic Adidas Predator boot. The striking black and yellow design prominently features the Merky FC logo, adding a touch of his signature style to the footwear. In a trailer released on Monday morning, Stormzy paid homage to South London's soccer heroes while introducing the new Adidas Merky FC boot. Describing the boot as "bright, powerful, clinical," Stormzy emphasized its potential to become an icon in the world of sports.

Scheduled for release on May 14, the Merky FC Predator boot arrives shortly after the launch of the Merky FC HQ, a multi-purpose center in Croydon, South London. This facility, located near Stormzy's childhood home, offers opportunities for individuals across football, music, and gaming. In addition to his collaboration with Adidas and the opening of the Merky FC HQ, Stormzy celebrated another sporting milestone. AFC Croydon Athletic, his hometown soccer team, achieved promotion following a playoff victory. This success comes less than a year after Stormzy took ownership of the club.
