The store newsletter: July 2020

In July, the collection takes on the sun.

Exclusively, one day before everyone else (within a few hours, yes, well), and just for you, here is the collection of So Foot photo prints for July with not five… but six new football photos ! Presentation.


Before showing them to you, we have something important to remind you : the special “family” promo - for you, our very first customers - of -15% reduction on all photos is still valid, and this until August 31, 2020. So we remind you of the code: SOSOLAFAMILLE (to be entered at the time of payment).

And to start, for once, with women's football. With the biggest moment of last year, the World Cup final between the United States and the Netherlands. Big favorites, the Americans held their place, led by their two leaders who have become icons: Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan . Who in this photo are exulting together after the penalty synonymous with opening the score. A symbolic shot that has become cult since it made the cover of Sports Illustrated .

Then head to Rio de Janeiro and its famous Copacabana beach. Regulars of the place, the footballers indulge their passion there every day, with their feet in the sand. Like this young carioca juggling barefoot, facing the ocean, with the famous Pao de Açucar (or Sugar Loaf Mountain) in the background. and immortalized by a photographer who came in the summer of 2016 to cover the Olympic Games.

Three words to summarize the next photograph. Not one more: “Second post Pavaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrddddddddd!”

It takes a little more than three to explain the scene in this very graphic black and white shot. It's George Best, from behind, head down, on his way to the locker room, alone. Why alone? Because the legendary Manchester United striker has just picked up the first red of his international career with Northern Ireland, during a friendly against Scotland (lost 1-0) at Windsor Park. For what ? For throwing mud and spitting on the referee... He needed a photo that lived up to his reputation.

For our first collection, in December, we offered a shot of the Stade Vélodrome from the stands. Here it's the opposite. This is a photo of the stands taken from the field. Le Virage Nord, an afternoon in May 2005, with the reception in Caen , as part of the 35th day. That day, despite the fervor of his team, OM lost 3-2. And with his Champions League dreams.

Last but not least, in this summer anniversary of the 50th anniversary of Brazil's title of world champion 70, and of this competition which will forever remain engraved in the retina of many as the most beautiful (because the first broadcast in color on TV ), it was obligatory to release this photograph of Pelé and his teammates hugging at the final whistle and thus give the illusion of forming only one body. O Rei can exult, he became that day (and still remains) the only player to win three World Cups.

All these prints will be available in the SO Boutique
from July 1 at 00:01.
