Just when you thought life couldn’t get any better for World Cup—winning French midfielder Paul Pogba, the mail man turns up on his doorstep with an exclusive Sobakov from adidas. And less than two months since his team’s victory in the World Cup Final against Croatia, the gift pays direct homage to the big win, with a heap of individual touches for the Manchester United star.
The packaging was almost as impressive as the shoe, with Pogba’s name and playing number emblazoned on top, plus a neat ribbon holding it all together in the bold colours of the French flag. But, we did say almost, as the shoe itself is pretty cool too.
As we’ve mentioned before, the Sobakov sneaker is clearly football inspired, and this custom version adds to that flavour with the Three Stripes on both sides of the shoe coming in the victorious red, white and blue of the triumphant French team.
