Sam Kerr has had an emphatic year. Building on huge success in 2017, 2018 has seen her net goal after goal on both club and international level. Now shaping up for the 2019 Women's World Cup, Nike Football have presented the Australian forward with some custom creps fresh from a Ballon d'Or nomination.

The Nike Air Force 1 'SK20' is treated with several elite finishes as recognition to Kerr's achievements. The golden Swoosh brings the initial bling on the traditionally white canvas, while the stand out and removable lace cover is the obvious centre-piece which features her squad number '20'. The 'SK20' logo is placed on the heel of the sneaker to round off a sublime transformation of one of Nike's most established silhouettes.

The signature Air Force 1 'SK20' also features bespoke insoles that list all of Kerr's accolades and custom branding throughout. We've mentioned the removable lace cover, and if you were to take that off you'll see that both laces are personalised with a list of every single one of Kerr's achievements: 2010 U20 Player of the Year, 2014 PFA Player of the Year, W-League Golden Boot 2018, NWSL Golden Boot 2017 & 2018, NWSL MVP 2017, NWSL BEST XI 2017 & 2018.

That's just one lace. The other lists: AFC Asian Women's Player of the Year 2017, Young Australian of the Year 2018, ESPY Best International Player 2018, Most Goals in NWSL (51), Most Goals in NWSL Game (4), Most Hat-Traicks in a Season & Most Goals in a Season (17). Good innings, that.
