Sportswear brand Nike has recently released new wine themed soccer shoes in honor of iconic Italian soccer player Andre Pirlo. The soccer shoes are colored in a deep shade of a certain grape to reflect Pirlo’s love of winemaking. What grape is it?
D. Pinot Noir
Pirlo owns a winery in northern Italy and grows merlot among several other grape varieties. Merlot is Pirlo’s favorite wine. To emphasize the wine theme, the shoes also feature a cork sockliner and the box that the shoes come in resembles a wine box.
