PUMA vibes - Orlando Pirates star Thembinkosi Lorch's new kicks


Thembinkosi Lorch is one of the few South African ballers who are signed with PUMA and it appears that the clothing and shoe manufacturer has decided to spoil their star with new kicks.   

The Orlando Pirates star is one of the biggest footballers in South Africa that has the privilege to be sponsored by the worldwide brand. In return Lorch shows his appreciation by often displaying himself on Instagram in a full PUMA outfit, dripping from head to toe. There is no doubt that the tricky winger is making the most of his partnership.

In his latest IG stories, the 28-year-old showed off his new gifts with a caption that read “Thank you PUMA”. The goods are worth more than R2000 with his new ‘PUMA X FIRST MILE PURE XT’ training shoes reportedly worth R1700 according to the brand’s official website.  

The shinpads that accompanied the shoes are valued at R374 and this excludes the price for Lorch’s puffy new slippers, a floppy hat and a new t-shirt that he was pictured in. But it remains unknown if the tee and pads are new.

This new shoe adds to an impressive list of kicks that Lorch has accumulated over time including a pair of Gucci Sneakers which are valued between R10 000 - R12 000 and an X-ray 2 square PUMA’s that are worth anything from R1100 –R1400 according to the label’s official website. 

Other Buccaneers who are sponsored by Puma include Zakhele Lepasa and Richard Ofori while Lehlohonolo Majoro, Lebohang Maboe and Themba Zwane are some of the other DStv Premiership players who complete the short list of ballers to achieve that feat.
