Tuchel's shoes went viral in the aftermath of Chelsea's celebrations after winning the Champions League with a 1-0 win over Manchester City.

The 47-year-old often wears Nike running trainers on matchday as the American sportswear firm are a major Chelsea sponsor.

Yet ex-Borussia Dortmund gaffer was pictured on the touchline in Portugal rocking a pair of Hoka One One - Bondi 7's.

In a post-match video the Blues shared, the former Paris Saint-Germain boss took his footwear off in the dressing room to hoist in the air.

And Tuchel later revealed the origin behind his 'lucky shoes' that inspired his side's Champions League victory over City.

The Blues manager admitted the trainers were a gift from PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi before their European final against Bayern Munich.

He said: “I had these shoes already in Paris and I promised that if we made it to the Champions League final I would wear them.

“They were a gift from the president of Paris Saint-Germain and I promised my collaborators that I would put them in the final.

“I did and we lost, tonight I wore them and we won."

The trainers are very popular among celebrities and their shock absorption makes them a good choice for anyone whose job requires them to stand for the majority of the day.

And they also come with good recommendations from podiatrists - especially for people with wide feet.

Dr Miguel Cunha told Today: "Hoka's shoes have a wider toe box, which allows for a more comfortable fit for those with a broader forefoot and can minimise the risk of developing uncomfortable conditions, like bunions or ingrown toenails."
