It's time to look into the boots spots from the weekend. And with club football back on track there has been plenty to choose from. Here are our 10 picks.
Giacomo Bonaventura (AC Milan) - Adidas 11Pro Core Black/White/Flash Orange We start off the week with one of the biggest local derbies in Europe. AC Milan hosted local rivals from Inter Milan. And midfielder Bonaventura from AC Milan took the opportunity to show of his new 11pro's from adidas. Adidas have been working on getting back to the old and elegant virtues with the new 11pro, something that seems to be a success with Bonaventura.
Juan Cuadrado (Fiorentina) - Adidas Nitrocharge 1.0 Core Black/White/Flash Orange Elsewhere in the Serie A, Cuadrado was also showing off his new football boots. He was wearing the new colourway for adidas Nitrocharge, something that would show to be a rather good idea. Cuadrado managed to score the important goal to make it 1-2 to Fiorentina, and a much needed victory.
Tiago (Atletico Madrid) - Adidas 11Pro Core Black/White/Flash Orange And it seems that the new adidas update has brought some renewed energy to the players, as Tiago was also wearing the new 11pro, which helped him deliver both a goal and an assist as Atletico did the business against Malaga.
Gonzalo Pineda (Seattle Sounders) - adidas Nitrocharge Crazylight And maybe Gonzalo Pineda should have done the same as Cuadrado, and have gone for the latest colour update of the Nitrocharge. Even if he took to the pitch in extreme lightweight style with his Nitrocharge Crazylight, there was little Pineda could do to prevent his club from losing 1-0 to L.A. Galaxy.
Marcelo Sarvas (L.A. Galaxy) - Diadora DD-NA 2 White/Green/Red The other way around, Marcelo Sarvas was more successful, as he was the man behind the only goal in the match between L.A. Galaxy and Seattle Sounders. We was wearing the latest colour update for the lightweight Diadora DD-NA 2 and it seems that this boot and Sarvas make for a brilliant team.
Thierry Henry (New York Red Bulls) – PUMA evoSPEED 1.3 White/Red Tricks Another successful partnership is between Henry and PUMA. Henry is still going strong in the MLS, where he and his evoSPEED 1.3 have led the New York Red Bulls to the paly offs. Although they lost the first round 1-2 to the New England Revolution, you would think Thierry and his limited Red/White Tricks boots have a few tricks of their own up their sleeve for the return fixture.
Andrew Farrel (New England Revolution) – Adidas Predator LZ (Blackout) In New England we also found quite a funny spot. Here Andrew Farrel wore a pair of blackouted adidas Predator LZ with mint green print. It has been a brilliant year for the Predator, mostly with the Predator Instinct taking center-stage, but Andrew Farrel decided to give the previous model a moment in the sun.
Dimitij Nozarov (Karlsruhe) – Adidas Predator LZ II Multicolour And the same must have been running through Dimitij Nozarov’s mind. Here he brought out the popular Predator LZ II Multicolour, which was made as a limited edition. We are always happy to see the very colourful design and it was therefore well deserving of a spot among our boot spots.
Emmanuel Cascione (Cesena) – adidas f50 Adizero Whiteout And from multicolour we just straight to no colour at all, with Cascione sporting a pair of whiteouted f50. There’s obviously not much mucking about with Cascione, who in true Monte Carlo style rocks long hair, socks around his ankles and a pair of whiteouted boots. Take a bow Cascione.
Reginal Goreux (FC Rostov) – Nike CTR360 Maestri III Current Blue/Black/Volt And while Cascione has gone for the whiteout style, Reginal Goreux has gone for the complete opposite. Here he has matched the boots with his team’s kit, going for the Current Blue/Black/Volt colourway of the now replaced CTR360 collection. We love it when the equipment matches, so thumbs up to Goreux for giving us this week’s best match.
This is what we had for you this time round. As always we urge you to inform us if you see any interesting spots. So even if our otherwise sharp eyes miss something, it can be a part of our boot spot segment.
