Minnesota Kicks shoe

Adidas soccer cleat worn by Ade Cokar of the Minnesota Kicks soccer team from 1976-1981. The cleat was stolen from Cokar’s foot during a post-game celebration by a student from Richfield High School.  Richfield High soccer coach Rudolf Martignacco ultimately recovered the shoe and returned it to Cokar. Cokar responded by presenting it to Martignacco having added the inscription, “Thanks for returning the boot.  Good luck.  Ade Cokar.”
