At the end of a weekend with tons of football, we have looked back to find the best spots from the weekend. And as always there was plenty of good spots to be found.
Andrija Kaluđerović (Brisbane Roar) - adidas Crazylight f50 Black/Yellow/Orange Coming off the back of this morning’s crazy adidas adizero 99 gram launch, it seemed only right to shine some light on the newly dethroned lightweight champion, as Andrija Kaluđerović wore the Crazylight model from last spring. This model weighs 36 grams more than the newest version. What will they think off next…
Walter Gargano (Napoli) – adidas prototype Well whatever they have in line next, Walter Gargano may be wearing. He is one of the many adidas players who has been showing off blackouts boots. This is however the first time we see one in a game – is there a new silo underway?
Yaya Toure (Manchester City) – PUMA evoPOWER Pool Green/White/Grenadine/Turbulence New silo is hardly what you can call Yaya Toure’s choice of football boots during the weekend, when he jumped in the first generation of evoPOWER. Whether it is to match the boots with the kit, or if there is something else behind is hard to say…
Rodney Wallace (Portland Timbers) – Nike Magista Obra (NikeID/New Colourway?) And when on the subject of matching your kit with your boots, then Rodney Wallace definitely takes this weekend’s top spot. He sported a pair of Magista Obra in a colourway previously unseen. The question is, has Wallace designed these himself on NikeID, or is this a new colourway from Nike?
Kevin Kuranyi (Dynamo Moscow) – adidas f50 adizero (miadidas) A strong runner up in our short ‘Weekend match” competition is Kevin Kuranyi, after he designed his own pair of adizero in blue – probably inspired by adidas’ blue women’s model. Either way, the match is spot on.
Nelson Valdez (Frankfurt) – adidas adizero f50 Green (Leather) The newest f50 adizero colourway is green. And even though everyone believed Gareth Bale would be the first to rock the new boots, Nelson Valdez has beaten him to it, becoming the first professional player to wear the green boot.
Kevin Molino (Orlando City SC) – adidas Messi 10.1 f50 Pibe de Barr10 Leo Messi was back in his Pibe de Barr10 against Sevilla, but so was Kevin Molino, who it would seem has fallen for the Messi-design too. With the white kit, the elegant f50’s are a good too.
Yannick Bolasie (Crystal Palace) – Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Black When you score an 11 minute hat trick, you are certainly entitled to a spot in our boot spots. Especially when the man, whose name is written on your boots, did the same the week before. There must be some magic in those CR7 boots.
Javier Chicharito (Real Madrid) – Nike Mercurial Superfly IV Shine Through He has been training in them for quite some time, but now it looks like he is finally confident enough to wear them during a game. The Little Pea wore a pair Nike Mercurial Superfly boots during the weekend and that turned out quite well, with him hitting the back of the net.
Dino Djulbic (Perth Glory) – Nike Mercurial Vapor IX Hi-Visibility This week’s boot spots have had a bit of special focus on matching football boots and kits. It therefore seems only right to cap it all off with a match from Dino Djulbic, who wore all purple. We gave Rodney Wallace the trophy earlier on, but we might have spoken too soon. What do you think?
Lots of nice matches in this week’s boot spots. Do you like to match your kit and boots? Share it with us on Instagram and remember to add #unisportlife to your picture.
