GRAMianluigi Donnarumma stood out for Italy against Belgium with some crucial saves, but his spiked gloves oddly enough also garnered attention.
The goalkeeper helped his team prepare a semi-final against Spain while sporting a pair of Adidas Predator Pro Hybrid gloves.
Hitting gloves sell for around 120 euros and their unusual design includes 280 spikes on the back, which are aimed at helping goalkeepers when it comes to hitting the ball.
“These hybrid cut adidas goalkeeper gloves offer great grip and shock absorption with URG 2.0 foam,” reads the product description on the Adidas online store.
“The palm flexes in all the right places, mimicking the natural movements of the hand.
“Demon leather elements extend across the punching area and rib knit reverse, helping you control the ball. A compressive strapless cuff gives you a secure, secure fit.”
Donnarumma is not the only goalkeeper we have seen with these gloves, with United manchester‘s David De Gea other Sheffield United‘s Aaron Ramsdale among others.
The Italian goalkeeper is likely to wear them again on Tuesday when Italy expensive Spain at 21:00 (CEST).
