Orlando Pirates Star shows R10 000 Mickey Mouse


Orlando Pirates star Thembinkosi Lorch has made a name for himself on the pitch, showing off some luxury brands that match his high status in South African football.

The 2018/19 PSL footballer is known on social media for his taste for designer clothes and trainers, but one of his most recent flexes featured the Mickey Mouse A.ce range that is no longer available for purchase.

“Kill your fear and tighten your shoelaces for the upcoming race,” read the headline in his post on Instagram, in which he has built an impressive following of over 260,000 people.

When Gucci worked with Disney

Lorch’s latest kicks, valued at R 10,000 to R 12,000, were part of the 2020 partnership between Disney and Gucci, led by the designer’s creative flair Alessandro Michele.

The idea is said to have been triggered by the Chinese “Year of the Mouse”, which explains that Mickey Mouse meets Gucci silhouette like Finishing.

Usual style?

Gucci aside, Lorch often shows off his Calvin Klein shirts and crew necks when he’s outfitted in one of his sponsored brands, PUMA.
