Paul Pogba has signed a 10-year deal with Adidas, who have rewarded the Juventus star by designing a stunning new pair of boots for the France international.
The sports giant have unveiled Pogba’s new boots which, sadly, will not be available on general sale.
It’s a traditional black boot, with gold stripes and sole, plus silver studs - stylish and elegant. However, the boots possibly lose points - or gain, depending on your personal taste - because on the back they come with either ‘POGBOOM’ or ‘POGBANCE’ writing on the back of them.

"Adidas believes in my dream of building hype in the world of football," Pogba said in a statement, per Goal.
"I hope I can leave a footprint and add something exciting and new to this iconic brand. The best is yet to come. This is Pogboom!"

Pogba will wear boots v Bayern Munich
Pogba will wear the boots in the Champions League last-16 second leg against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena this evening.
And what a boost it’ll be for Adidas if Pogba can score past Manuel Neuer wearing a pair of these beauties.
The 23-year-old is widely regarded as the world’s best young midfielder and a future FIFA Ballon d’Or contender.
However, in order to take his career to the next level, Pogba may need to join an elite club in either Spain or Italy.
Pogba prefers La Liga over Premier League
It’s understood that Pogba’s preference is to join either Barcelona or Real Madrid - he would love to play alongside Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou but also has huge respect for Zinedine Zidane - this summer.
And the two Spanish clubs will both push hard for his signature ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.
Earlier this week, Pogba told FIFA’s official website - per Goal - that Zidane was one of two childhood idols, along with the original Ronaldo.
“Ronaldo is my footballing role model and the player that made me fall in love with football,” the midfielder commented.
“I was enthralled by him as I used to play up front when I was younger. His technique, pace and eye for goal, as well as the variety of his play, was something I liked and admired.
“And of course Zidane too. He's a French icon and someone who made a real impression on us. We won't forget him. Everyone respects and admires him and we all want to emulate what he's achieved in his career.”
Pogba’s signature would help Real Madrid close the gap between themselves and Barcelona - but if the Catalan giants secure his services, it could be game-over for Los Blancos and the rest of Europe for the next few years.
