Gucci Enters The World Of Indoor Soccer With $850 Shoe
The worlds of football and Gucci are no strangers to each other. On any given weekend you’ll see countless professionals departing the team bus and heading to the dressing room with their Gucci handbags in tow (except Kieran Tierney).
On the pitch, the greatest purveyor of the luxury fashion house is Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin, who frequently embarrasses defenders while wearing a $250 Gucci headband with a sticker over the branding to avoid a fine.
But Gucci is now taking an active role in appearing at your local indoor soccer establishment with the release of the Ultrapace R shoe. The mid-top design will stop you from murdering your ankles, while the pairing of a rubber outer with stretch knit fabric (and a rubber sole) is perfect for the indoor game.
They’ll cost you $850 (a monthly payment plan is available) and the first defender you encounter will certainly try to break your leg, but that’s the price you’ll have to pay to look like Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye out there.
