This week’s boot spots has a bit of both. The star of the show does however have to be Yannick Bolasie, who has previously proven to be a bit of a CR7 fan - or at least fan of his boots. Join along and find out what he and the other stars wore during the weekend…
Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona) - adidas Messi15.1 White/Blå
After playing in the same model since the beginning of June, adidas have finally launched new colours for the only player in the world, who has his very own silo.
Yannick Bolasie (Crystal Palace) - Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Rare Gold
There are lots of football boot fans in the world and Yannick Bolasie is definitely one of them. He has previously played in CR7 signature boots and he is at it again with the Rare Gold model. Props to Bolasie for going golden.
Afran Ismaylov (Qarabag) - adidas f50 Messi
Ismaylov also shows some love for his (we suspect) idol, with the Messi signature colourway from spring 2014, which was made with samba colours, to warm up for the 2014 World Cup. They were pretty special, so it’s no wonder Ismaylov still wears them.
Jefferson Montero (Swansea) - adidas X15.1 White/Silver
It’s not much we have seen of it, since it was unveiled a few weeks back, but now Jefferson Montero changes that. Now we will have to wait and see if Montero ends up being a trendsetter, or if he has just created his own signature boot. They definitely suit the Swansea kit well in any case.
Jonjo Shelvey (Swansea) - adidas Ace15.1 Blue/Black/Neon
And the same can actually be said about the Blue Ace, which we saw for the first time this summer. Shelvey does have a reputation for standing out with his choice of boots and the last two games he has shown some love for the blue Ace.
Saido Berahino (West Bromwich Albion) - Nike Mercurial Superfly Lightning Storm Pack + Intense Heat Pack
Mr. Controversy himself. - Weeks after claiming he would never play for Albion again he scores the winning goal in the Premier League midlands derby. He did so to begin with in a pair of Lightning Storm Pack Superfly, which it would appear hadn’t been given enough game time and therefore needed changing at half time.
Hugo Lloris (Tottenham) - Nike Tiempo Intesne Heat Pack
We have previously noticed, how Lloris prefers to match his gloves and boots, even if they aren’t the same brand. At the moment he is rocking a combination of Uhlsport HN02 og Nike Tiempo from the Intense Heat Pack - and it looks awesome!
And that was this weekend’s boot spots and as promised it had a bit of everything. Which spot do you think was the sharpest? And have you seen something even sharper possibly?
