Billy Hobbs of Lexington, Kentucky designs custom kicks for celebrities.

He’s customers include people from Snoop Dogg to Paul McCartney.

However, a recent pair of his custom high tops were created for none other than Pope Francis.

Father Jim Sichko came up with the gift idea for his trip to the Vatican, asking Hobbs to paint the Nike blazers yellow and white to represent the papal flag, along with the Pope’s Coat of Arms.

See the pope’s reaction by watching the video from WLEX.
