Sportsmen and luxury are inseparable. Orlando Pirates player Thembinkosi Lorch may be off the pitch due to his shoulder injury. However, he is still slaying, fashion-wise.
The football star with 548K followers on Instagram enjoys sharing pictures of himself in expensive garb. In his latest post, he was wearing Gucci Mickey Mouse sneakers and Gucci socks. The sneakers cost $720 (about R10 700), while the socks are priced at $195.
The sneakers that Lorch wore are part of the Gucci capsule collection with Disney. Inspired by the 2020 Lunar New Year, the collection was part of the Chinese Year of the Rat celebration.
The brand created the collection to pay tribute to the mom and dad of the Disney characters family — Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Lorch seems fond of Gucci as he has several clothing items from the brand, including a beanie, shorts, belts, sneakers, bags and more.
He made headlines in July this year when he made his relationship with the Blood and Water actress Natasha Thahane official. The pair went on holiday in Zanzibar and shared pictures and videos.
On his birthday, Thahane posted a video of him on her Instagram page. Lorch also posted Thahane on his Instagram page, but it wasn’t long before they removed the posts from their pages. Although there have been rumours that they have separated, the couple maintains that they are still together.
