Toni Kroos ended his career with the German national team in a 2-1 loss in the Euro 2024 quarter-finals against Spain. The football boot manufacturer Adidas decided to honour the remarkable midfielder. His favourite model will be called TKPro.

During his career, the German didn't change the store choices for his football accessories. He remained loyal to a specific model of boots, and one can see him wearing them both in archival photos and pictures from the final match of his career.

The boot manufacturer - Adidas - decided to honour Toni Kroos. The new name of his favourite model is TKPro, rather than the previous 11Pro. It’s unobtrusive but will be associated with Toni Kroos for the foreseeable future.

Toni Kroos was strongly associated with the Adidas brand. Adidas outfitted both teams he represented over the past decade. They supply kits for the German national team and Real Madrid. Toni Kroos's previous clubs, Bayern Munich and Bayer 04 Leverkusen, also wore this brand's kits.

Toni Kroos decided to leave the German national team at the age of 34. His last match with the national team was the 2-1 loss in the Euro 2024 quarter-finals against Spain. The goal that decided Germany's elimination came in extra time.

The midfielder debuted with the national team in 2010 and played over 100 matches. He was a key member of the team that won the World Cup in 2014 and also claimed medals in the 2010 World Cup, Euro 2012, and Euro 2016. Toni Kroos's departure is a painful blow for many of his fans.

Toni Kroos hoped his farewell would happen in the Euro 2024 final. However, Germany did not manage to progress beyond the quarter-finals of the tournament they are hosting.
