Theo Walcott has signed on with Adidas and will now be part of their stupid ‘There Will be Haters’ campaign.

Ditching Nike after a long relationship, the England man has signed with Mesut Ozil’s boot company and will debut the Adidas adiZero F50 boots against Crystal Palace.

Speaking about the deal, Walcott said

“I am excited to be joining Adidas and lining up alongside some of the world’s best players,” Walcott said. “The Adidas adiZero F50 is an exceptional boot and I am looking forward to wearing the boots and scoring goals in them.”

Adidas’s global director of sports marketing, Gregory Fernandez, added

“Theo is an exceptional player who has achieved so much in his career to date and we look forward to being part of that next chapter with him as one of the faces of the adidas F50”.

Here are the boots Theo will be wearing:
