CCC Team's Matteo Trentin has customized his Sidi shoes to thank the healthcare workers that have been fighting against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Italy was the first European country to be hit by the coronavirus and soon became one of the places that was also hit the hardest in the first months of the pandemic. The Italian rider wanted to honour the nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals that have been fighting on the first line against the virus and saving lives.

"I saw this image by an English cartoonist that immediately provoked a strong reaction in me," said Trentin. "While his work is a direct message, I thought that the situation that the whole world is facing deserved an honest response. There is no intent behind the use of this image other than to raise people's spirits with this striking cartoon."

The image printed in the shoes of the Italian rider shows a nurse facing the already known image of the pathogen of the Covid-19 that is portrayed also with an evil face. The posture of the nurse represents the tenacity, spirit and sacrifice of those people that are in the battle against the virus.

The shoes have been specially customized for Trentin and won't be available in the Sidi catalogue. But this special shoes will be auctioned for charity at the end of the season.
