      Weekenden boot spots: Alves nets in the red Nitrocharge

      In this round of boot spots we take a look at Dani Alves, who gave his new red Nitrocharge 1.0 a good start and then we take a closer look at the blue Predator-mania, which seems to be spreading. All that and more in this round of boot spots from the weekend.

      Dani Alves (FC Barcelona) – Adidas Nitrocharge 1.0 Red/Running White/Electricity Dani Alves' new red Nitrocharge got off to a flying start in the weekends match against Sevilla – and the Nitrocharge front man must be quite pleased with their début performance. Alves may be one of the boots biggest stars, but actually he gets the boot customised with an upper made of SprintSkin, instead of the regular HybridTouch. In other words, this is probably more of a “NitroZero” on the feet of the Brazilian.

      Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspurs) – Nike Mercurial Vapor IX Volt/Black-Bright Citrus The young Danish prodigy has plenty of reasons to smile after his display in the weekend. The already somewhat of a fan favourite got his full début for Tottenham and with one assist and being deeply involved in Spurs' second goal he looks to have already cemented a spot in the hearts of the fans, as well as the starting line-up. So we can all look forward to seeing more of his Nike Mercurial Vapor IX Volt/Black-Bright Citrus, which he has of course had personalised in patriotic fashion, with the Danish flag on the side.

      Mesut Özil (Arsenal FC) – Adidas Predator LZ II Blue/Orange/Running White If you take the trip from White Hart Lane and a trip down the road to The Emirates, then the Arsenal fans will also be seeing much more of the new club Darling Mesut Özil. He marked his début, with an assist to Olivier Giroud. He did so wearing the Adidas Predator LZ II Blue/Orange/Running White, which he and plenty of others have really taken to.

      Juan Mata (Chelsea FC) – Adidas Predator LZ II Blue/Orange/Running White The newest colourway of Adidas Predator LZ II is storming onto the feet of players around the world. It is already now rare to spot the Ray Green/Electricity colourway, which most professionals have quickly swept aside to make room for the new blue. Chelsea's attacking creator can definitely not be blamed for wanting to wear the new boots, because they will match the Chelsea home shirt perfectly.

      Hiroki Sakai (Hannover 96) – Puma EvoSpeed 1.2 White/Silver/Red A colourway that has never made a great impression on the professionals is the White/Silver/Red version of the lightweight Puma EvoSpeed 1.2. We are yet to see it on the feet of the big stars like Giroud, Falcao and Agüero, but in the weekends game against Bayern Munich, we saw Hannover 96 player, Hiroki Sakai, wearing the boot. We hope he can help spread the word, because the boot looks brilliant in action.

      Adnan Januzaj (Manchester United) – Nike Hypervenom Phantom Dark Charcoal/Total Crimson Another boot that looks brilliant in action, is the Nike Hypervenom Phantom. It doesn't matter what colourway you pick, it has a really nice on-pitch look and this certainly applies to the Stealth-pack Nike Hypervenom Phantom, which was launched this summer. It is the stark opposite of the newly unveiled Hi-Vis Hypervenom, but we would vouch that they both look great, at the feet of Januzaj and all the other members of the New Breed of Attack.

      Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) – Nike Mercurial Vapor IX Volt/Black-Bright Citrus Another new thing is Cristiano Ronaldo's signature on his new contract with the king-club. He will certainly be getting a royal salary, but then again he is truly invaluable to Real Madrid, so his new yearly wage, which is on the pretty side of €20m, should be worth every penny. With a hefty pay check like that you would think he could afford a pair of Nike Mercurial Vapor IX, but he's probably saving up for the new Hi-Vis Mercurial boots, which we expect he will wear in this weeks Champions League fixtures.

      Yuto Nagatomo (Inter) – Nike Mercurial Vapor IX Volt/Black-Bright Citrus Inter Milan's Nagatomo also looks happy with the Volt/Black-Bright Citrus Vapor. He is however more ambivalent when it comes to the laces, which he has changed to a black pair. The reason for this is a bit of a mystery, but we suspect he did this so he could get a place in our boot spots – we therefore decided to reward him for the effort, you're welcome.

      Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli) – Nike Hypervenom Phantom Bright Citrus/Black We can't help stopping by Napoli in this round of boot spots, because we have a bit of a correction to make. Previously we stated that the new Napoli away shirt is smart, because players can't see you coming in the camouflage, but what's the point, when you troop up in a pair of bright orange boots to match? Fair enough, in Higuain's defence he did score the winning goal, but the boots certainly wouldn't have been accepted in the military.

      This round of boot spots brought with it even more blue Predators and then there was a début goal for Dani Alves' Nitrocharge/NitroZero 1.0. What do you think about this round of boot spots? And have you spotted something we missed? As always we would love to hear your comments here, on Facebook and on Twitter.
