“Paul Pogba wears anything,” or so we thought. This old saying had come to an end when Pogba signed a 10-year contract with Adidas in 2016. Thus, a very limited edition Paul Pogba soccer cleat was born in the form of a Black and Gold Adidas Ace 16+ Purecontrol. Pogba and Messi are the only Adidas football boot endorsers who receive a consistent signature series.

With Pogba’s appeal to the younger generation of soccerers as well as his swag in and out of the field, Adidas is set to propel its soccer cleats beyond the pitch.
