5 unsuspected sneakerheads from EURO 2020

To be looked on and off the pitch

5 unsuspected sneakerheads from EURO 2020 To be looked on and off the pitch

Five years later and a year late due to Covid-19, the Euros are back in a new itinerant version. This isn't the only news of this edition, which will see for the first time the debut of the new generation of footballers born after 2000, those ones who also look for the skill outside the pitch, over than on the pitch, by showing the right outfit and the just dropped sneaker.

If on the side it's too easy to look at the most famous names (everyone knows the style of Depay and Pogba), on the other hand, this is the perfect occasion to search for new style champions among the called. Because of this, nss sports thought at five unsuspected sneakerheads that we will see at EURO 2020, five footballs that no one imagine can capture the lens of the cameras and of the smartphones in-game and on Instagram.


Manuel Akanji - Switzerland

The Borussia Dortmund's defender is a standing point of the Swiss National team. Over the merits on the pitch, he's probably the best dressed Swiss player. On his feet, lots of sneakers have been pictured: from the classic Jordan 1 to the versions with Off-White, to the far less remarkable sneakers like the Alexander McQueen's ones.


Enis Bardhi - Macedon

It seems that the Macedonian number 17, who will challenge Ukraine, the Netherlands and Austria in Group C, really likes Nike. The style of Levante's playmaker is so simple, and it's evident how the sneakers are the main point of his looks. Air Jordan and Air Force are the born 1995 chosen ones, and we should look at him also outside the pitch this summer.


Denzel Dumfries - Netherlands

The Oranje National team is full of sneakerheads and the PSV full-back doesn't seem to be outdone. Tracksuit by Palm Angels or crewneck by Heron Preston are often combined by the Dutchman with Nike x Off-White or even with Yeezy, in particular, the 350 v2 and the 700 v3. Who knows, between one trip and the next he won't be photographed with other sneakers worthy of mention.


Tyler Roberts - Wales

After the exploit at EURO 2016, Wales dream big this summer, although it will be really difficult to happen again. Among the most interesting talents of the Welsh National team, we have to name Leeds United's Tyler Roberts. Judging from his Instagram profile, clothes are important for Roberts, who doesn't disdain the matching with a pair of Yeezy and a Fear of God hoodie. Surely, the summer months will allow us to look at some new outfits from him.


Marcus Thuram - France

In addition to talent, the French National team seem to abound in style too. Among the selected players of the reigning World Champions is also Marcus Thuram, son of art and talent of Borussia Mönchengladbach who, judging by his looks, also seems to get along well with the outfits. Taking a quick look at his fits it is clear how Marcus takes inspiration from Drake or Travis Scott, combining the sneakers with items of Chrome Hearts and Louis Vuitton, in addition to the inevitable hoodie of Cactus Plant Flea Market.
