El Clasico, MLS Cup finals, Premier League Records and more. Let’s take a look on the boots we spotted this past week:
Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona) – adidas Messi15

Messi has returned, and what better than El Clasico to show he’s ready for action with the latest colorway of his adidas signature Messi15 cleats? Barcelona gave a true exhibition at the Santiago Bernabeu, and the Argentinian showed up on the field for the last part of the game, when Barça already had a 4-0 advantage. La Pulga showed some of his skills without pushing himself too far, this was the first game he played since a two month absence due to a knee injury.
Raphael Varane (Real Madrid) – Nike Tiempo Legend 6

On the other side of El Clasico we had Raphael Varane, who lived a true nightmare under Barcelona’s relentless play. He will surely want to forget that terrible exhibition in front of Real Madrid fans. The silver lining is that we got to see the shining Tiempo Legend 6 on action for the first time outside the Nike Academy.
Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) – Nike Hypervenom Phantom II
— Premier League (@premierleague) November 21, 2015
Jamie Vardy is the man of the moment in the English Premier League. He’s not only the current league top goalscorer, but also equaled Van Nistelrooy’s record of 10 straight games scoring in the BPL. His individual performance has had a perfect timing with those of his teammates, and Leicester City is the surprising leader in the English League. We’ll have to see if Vardy keeps scoring to help the foxes stay atop of the table.
Kolo Touré (Liverpool FC) – New Balance Visaro

New Balance has had some bad luck regarding their ambassadors on the field, as the main stars are sidelined with injuries and could not show off the hot colorways released last week. However, Kolo Toure did play in Liverpool’s jaw-dropping victory over Manchester City but, to our amazement, he was still wearing the original colorway of the Visaro cleats. Maybe he took a liking of that color, but we would have loved to see the bright Lava/Fireball combination in action.
Justin Meram (Columbus Crew) – Nike Mercurial Superfly
— Columbus Crew SC (@ColumbusCrewSC) November 23, 2015
Vardy was not the only record man this week, as Columbus Crew Justin Meram scored the fastest goal in the history of the MLS Cup playoffs. Just nine seconds into the game and Meram had already netted the first goal of the night, a shocker for New York Red Bulls and pure delight for those watching the game. He’ll remember this feat the rest of his life, and maybe he’ll also never forget that he was wearing Nike Mercurial Superfly cleats in their Electro Flare colorway.
This is it for this week’s recap! Be sure to come next Monday to see what we have spotted!
