It’s been another great week for cleat spotting, including debut from Luis Suarez and Francesco Totti.
Luis Suarez – adidas f50 adiZero
Luis Suarez slipped into the brand new adiZero Tattoo pack at the weekend. The latest boot to be launched as part of adidas’ #therewillbehaters campaign, the Love/Hate f50 features a different design on the left and right boot. A fitting boot for Luis Suarez, if ever there was.
Francesco Totti – Nike Tiempo Legend V Premium
The second boot debut of this week was Francesco Totti in the new Nike Tiempo Legend V Premium. The first Tiempo in a number of years to have officially been released with a tongue, the Legend V Premium is a limited edition release of 3000 pairs.
Kaka – adidas Copa Mundial
Kaka made his long awaited MLS debut this weekend for Orlando, scoring the club’s first ever goal in the process. Once one of adidas’ biggest players, Kaka made his debut wearing a blacked out pair of the Copa Mundial. A super classy choice for a super classy player.
Kolo Toure – Warrior Skreamer
We reckon that Kolo Toure might be one of the only ‘big’ name players left wearing a Warrior boot. While pretty much all of the former Warrior men have been switched into New Balance boots, for some reason Toure played this weekend in the Warrior Skreamer. We’re not sure why exactly he’s stuck with the Skreamer, especially as he’s been training in the New Balance boots.
Graham Zusi – adidas Predator Instinct
Graham Zusi was one of a handful of MLS players who wore this alternative #therewillbehaters colourway over the weekend. We haven’t seen much of this colourway in Europe, suggesting that it might be one that adidas have particularly pushed in the US. Definitely one of the brightest #therewillbehaters colourways adidas have released thus-far.
Kevin Kampl – Puma evoSpeed 1.3
Kevin Kampl was spotted in a mysterious Puma black out that we suspect is the Puma evoSpeed 1.3. While from afar its hard to identify what exactly his boots are, a closer look reveals not only the trademark Puma heel counter but also the “PUMA” on the tongue.
Romeo Castelen – adidas adiPure 11Pro SL
This is the first time we’ve caught sight of the new adiPure 11Pro SL. While the regular 11Pro it was released alongside has largely been touted as the best 11Pro released thusfar, its SL counterpart hasn’t released all that much pitch time. A great looking colourway that plays on the two-toned design that adidas have been using for the 11Pro.
Bertrand Traore – Nike Mercurial Superfly
Finally this week, Bertrand Traore popped up in this clean Nike Mercurial Superfly. Traore looks to have taken to NikeID to customise how own pair of Nike’s speed boot, and has opted for a great pink/white/black colour combination. Always great to see a good customised boot and that’s exactly what this is.
