Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips has left social media users baffled by his shoe choice after signing autographs while wearing shoes that look like Quavers.
The England international midfielder was spotted signing merchandise on the eve of their Premier League clash against Southampton – and fans were left rather confused by both the design and color of his boots.
Some comparing its new treads to Quavers due to their bold yellow color scheme, the soles resemble moose hooves with a canvas lining as well as a tie running down the front and excess material protruding over the ankles.
One fan replied, “What is Kalvin Phillips wearing on his feet?”
With a second adding: “No, this is officially the worst thing I’ve ever seen.”
A third continued: “He wears Quavers on his feet.”
With a fourth comically putting both feet in paper shopping bags and writing alongside snaps of her creation: “Shoes for sale @Kalvinphillips. Worn once.

Some research shows that the shoes are part of Spanish luxury fashion house Loewe’s Fall 2022 ready-to-wear collection – which has yet to be made public.
Although pricing for the outerwear has yet to be detailed, Loewe has shoes ranging from £295 to £1300 on their official website.
After a hugely successful 2021, for which the 26-year-old was named England’s Senior Men’s Player of the Year, he posed for a fashion shoot with CP Company.
In 2020 on Soccer AM, Phillips said when asked who had the worst dress sense at Leeds: “Pat Bamford. His dress sense is awful, honestly it’s awful.
“Like baggy jeans, some people have skinny jeans, but he’s got real baggy jeans and that.”
Adding: “He plays like he’s running around in baggy jeans to be fair.”
