Nike : Lewandowski oscillated between using Nike and Puma boots during his young days, eventually settling on Adidas boots during his teen years at Znicz Pruszków. It wasn’t until his final years with Lech Poznań that he became a frequent wearer of Nike boots again, leading up to his landmark deal with the American brand in 2013.
It has been believed for a while that Lewandowski is on his way to sign a deal with Puma. Rumours of the same started gaining wind when the Pole wore Puma’s Future Z football boots in March 2021 in a Bundesliga match against Werder Bremen. Although he came out for the second half of that game in Nike (Phantom Venom) boots, the speculation remains.
