Pope Francis received from Father Jim Sichko some personalized, Nike yellow tennis shoes with the pontiff's name on the back of the shoes

Pope Francis received from Father Jim Sichko some personalized, yellow tennis shoes with the pontiff's name on the back of the shoes. (Read More Here).

Sichko was visiting the Vatican, he didn't want to go unnoticed and he didn't want to give the Pope an ordinary gift, so he tried to think what could be different and he succeeded.

After having the idea he had to land it and Father Sicho contacted the designers of Tru Blue Color, who were very nervous, but also happy, because they had a very special order in their hands.

The finished result are some Nike Blazer Mid 77' Vintage kicks painted white and yellow/gold, the same colors as the Pope's flag, and a detailed portrait of his coat of arms displayed on the sides.

The Pope's name is also painted on the back and they came with a custom wooden shoe box.

It took True Blue Color just 10 hours to design the box, they said it was a very special commission for them, and although they have customized the sneakers of several stars, this project is certainly the one they are most excited about.

The finished result are some Nike Blazer Mid 77' Vintage kicks painted white and yellow/gold -- the same colors as the Pope's flag -- and a detailed portrait of his coat of arms displayed on the sides.

True Blue Customs says it only took 10 hours to make this exclusive package ... and it's going down as one of their favorite projects. "Pretty crazy," True Blue Customs tells us about designing the Pope's gift.

"I've done shoes for tons of celebs over the years but hard to top this one." It seems like the Pope loved the gesture .. 'cause the 85--year-old was all smiles when Father Jim hand-delivered them to him on Wednesday.

Sorry P.J. Tucker, the Pope got you beat with this one.
