Nike have toasted to Luka Modrić’s 2018 Best Player triumph by releasing a special edition boot in honour of the Real Madrid playmaker.
The boot features an iridescent upper, with touches of green, white and gold included in the colour palette, which celebrates Modric breaking the near 10-year streak of either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo winning the World Player of the Year.
Modrić’s win comes after a ridiculous campaign for the Croat which saw him win a third consecutive Champions League trophy with Real Madrid, captain Croatia to the World Cup final and become the first-ever player to win the World Cup Golden Ball, the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year and FIFA World Player of the Year in one season. Certified baller.
