In sports, fashion comes and goes but some designs do stick around and become timeless.
Now more than ever in the history of sports, athletes are being used to influence fashion and design of shoes and other sports-related mechs.
In recent years, we have been witnessing a transformation of the modern football player, who just loves to appear and show off expensive clothes and limited edition shoes.
From Mesut Ozil, Christiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr. Jerome Boateng, the shoe culture in football has grown immensely popular thanks to them.
Below are 3 shoes that were won by almost every player because they were not only stylish but comfortable and trendy.
Off-White x Nike
The sneakers from the collaboration between Nikeand Off-Whitedon’t really need an introduction as they were the absolute protagonists of the last two years, since footballers, sports personalities and celebs all wore them.
The Air Jordan 1 and the Nike Air Vapormax were the most preferred sneakers by the footballers, while a very few showed up on the pitch with Virgil Abloh’s unique Mercurial, designed in partnership with the Oregon brand, which were exclusives for some, like Kylian Mbappé.
Yeezy 350 V2
Gucci Ace Sneakers
The Gucci Ace are simple, elegant, regular cut shoes designed with bright colours. Similarly to the Nike x Off-White, we have seen them on everyone’s feet, and like the Balenciaga Speed Runner, they are less worn nowadays.
However, we cannot say that they hadn’t dominated the instagram feeds in the last three years. You know, Jesse Lingard was heavily criticised by the English tabloids last year because he wore them with one of his many expensive outfits.
