Because kicks matter
It is quite obvious that shoes are important for footballers, however, the shoes they wear off the pitch show how dynamic one is in their personal life. Sneakers are all about personality – don’t you agree?
Air Max 1
According to Nike’s official website, these R2 279 shoes are inspired by a collaboration with Patta, a Dutch streetwear and sneaker boutique in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
“Patta’s latest work takes the iconic Air Max 1 and adds a twist to its OG execution, with the second iteration of the wave pattern on the mudguard,” reads a description of the shoes on Nike’s website.
“Patta branding hits the tongue label and sock liner while a mini Swoosh on the wavy mudguard adds the finishing touch to another historic collaboration.”
Did you know?
In 2020, the 32-year-old changed his jersey number from 11 to 24 in honor of legendary American basketball player Kobe Bryant, according to Football Laduma. The striker explained that he was very devastated by his passing earlier that year as he was his inspiration.
