This article contains information regarding Polish superstar footballer, Robert Lewandowski, and his sponsors and charity work.
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.
