There are plenty of soccer players who like to be extravagant and do pretty unreasonable things with their wealth and fortunes, but Saint-Etienne striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang took things to a whole other level when he sported a pair of Swarovski crystal-encrusted Nike Vapor VIIIs in the game vs Lyon last Monday.
The $4,000 boots had been specially made for him by a Parisian design company called Orravan Design. Incredibly, it took more than two days to apply the 4,000 crystals in a design that incorporated Aubameyang’s initials, squad number and the Saint-Etienne club crest.
For those worried about them getting damaged or losing a Crystal in the knee of an opponent in a tackle, Aubameyang only wore them during warm-ups, before he jumped in a plan and ordinary pair of Vapor VIIIs for the game. Who would have thought I’d ever be calling a pair of Vapors ordinary??
