Lukas Podolski made his Inter Milan debut against Juventus last night wearing the limited edition 'Pure Leather' adidas F50 adizero.

Whenever a new edition drops Lukas is always the first one banging on adidas HQ's door to snag a pair and the latest version he's laced up in are 1 of just 500 pairs worldwide.
Having swapped the Emirates for the San Siro until the end of the season Podolski came off the bench last night as his new side drew 1-1 at Juventus thanks to Mauro Icardi's equaliser. The German striker matched up Inter's slick home kit with his new footwear to become the first and only high-profile adidas player to rep the 'Pure Leather' pack on-pitch.
