EA's Anthem video game has inspired boots that will be worn by Jesse Lingard, Felipe Anderson, Kasper Schmeichel and Erik Lamela.

Jesse Lingard, Felipe Anderson, Kasper Schmeichel and Erik Lamela will all wear unique hand-painted boots inspired by Electronic Arts' (EA) sci-fi adventure video game Anthem from this weekend.

EA's collaboration with adidas has also involved French boot designer Pierre Navarro, who has produced the artwork adorning each of the one-of-a-kind boots.

Navarro, who has previously crafted designs for boots worn by Antoine Griezmann, Romelu Lukaku and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, was tasked with coming up with artwork inspired by the 'Javelin suits' available for players to wear in EA's Anthem game.

Each customisation is said to reflect the specific player's playing style and modelled on either the Storm, Interceptor, Ranger or Colossus suit.

Lingard's Storm design has been made to highlight his ability "inflicting damage from distance"; Anderson will wear Interceptor due to being "the most agile, equipped with lightning-fast speed"; Lamela is an "all-rounder that has strong defence and attack" to reflect the Ranger, and Schmeichel will sport Colossus as the "most powerful, commanding the combat area".
