Victoria might have been the first Beckham to turn designer, but at an event this week, her husband proved he could hold his own with the launch of his debut men’s line. Giving David center stage, Victoria supported her husband as he unveiled the David Beckham by J. Bond Collection for Adidas’s Originals by Originals line in L.A. Despite his wife’s impressive design experience, the soccer star tells PEOPLE that Victoria wasn’t involved in his design process. His three little boys, however, did weigh in: “They are always so honest,” says David. “We stuck things in front of them to see how they’d react.” Their favorites? “They reacted really well to the sneakers.” As for his own top picks from the collection, the soccer star is equally enthusiastic about each of the designs. “It’s my style. I wanted to create something that everybody could wear whether it be going to practice, or the gym in the morning, or going for a coffee or going out to dinner at night,” David tells us. And although we were hoping that David would strip down for his own ads, like he did for Armani, the new designer confirms that he will remain behind the cameras for now.
