LOOK: UK graduate and caddie of women’s golfer Sophia Popov is wearing Kentucky golf shoes

I don’t care how much they cost, just tell us where we can purchase them.

Sophia Popov, a German golfer on the Symetra Tour, is currently in the lead at the AIG British Women’s Open, but it’s the shoes worn by her caddy that caught the attention of the Big Blue Nation. Check out the Kentucky-themed Nike kicks that former UK Men’s Golfer Max Mehles is sporting on the course and tell me you don’t want 10 pairs.

Here’s a closer view.

Kentucky graduate and current ESPN anchor Michael Eaves mentioned that Popov and Mehles are dating, making Popov a Wildcat by association and someone we should all be cheering on. As of noon on Sunday, she was seven-under-par with a 3-shot lead and only a few holes remaining. Popov didn’t even secure her first top-10 finish until placing ninth earlier this month at the Marathon LPGA Classic. Now she’s on the cusp of winning her first career major.

If Mehles can just get Popov to sport her own Kentucky-kicks, we’ll have our first BBN golfing power couple.

(Is that a thing? We’ll make it a thing.)
