Days after a $196 million F1 commitment, Lewis Hamilton aims to revolutionize racing fashion with stylish new boot

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton recorded his first victory in 2007 in his sixth-ever race. Since then, his career has come a long way, as the Mercedes superstar went on to break the record for most Formula 1 wins with 103 victories to his name.

However, little is known about his success in other fields, such as music and fashion. Lewis Hamilton has a song with Christina Aguilera, as well as a fashion line with Tommy Hilfiger. Most recently, the Brit mentioned working on a special racing boot.

Lewis Hamilton sets sights on designing cutting-edge racing boot

Speaking on this, he said, “Ultimately, [I’ve designed] so many things. I should have patterned stuff, but when I started to work with Puma, we sat with them, and I pulled them into the office.”

He continued, “I’ll be like, ‘Okay, well, why do you have this? Why is there extra material here? When I put it on, why is there this?’ So I just asked lots of questions. I was like, can we cut this down, can we cut this off?”

He discussed his approach to design, saying, “I think many of the drivers are giving input because we’re using them all the time. I think we got to a really good place; we had the lightest boots at one stage, and then now we don’t need to have the lightest ones, so we have like a happy medium.”

In the meantime, he also recently renewed his contract with Mercedes till 2025.
