5/30/2018 11:15:16 In the run-up to the 2018 World Cup, several players have worn Adidas shoes.

The players have received fines ranging from a €50,000 ($53,000) fine to a €1 million ($1.5 million) fine for wearing shoes that were banned by the governing body of the game.

These players included Gianluigi Buffon, Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Paulo Dybala.

The two-time European champion Buffon was fined €50 million ($56.5m) and Dybla €1.25 million ($2.6m) for their respective actions during their respective matches against Italy.

Lazio defender Gianluigui Gattuso was fined just under €100,000 for his own actions. 

In the past few years, players have also been fined by the FIFA governing body for wearing Nike and Adidas shoes, although these punishments are rarely reported. 

With just over six weeks to go until the start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the 2018 European Championships, Football Italian has compiled a list of the most egregious cases of Adidas footwear violations.
