Another eventful weekend of football is over, with goals galore! There was plenty of fun boot spots this week and we have collected the ones that caught our eye the most here. Read along:
Christoph Kramer (Bayern Leverkusen) - adidas Ace15 & adidas X15 (At the same time?)
Ehhh, what? It looks like Christoph Kramer thinks he is both a mixture of chaos and control and therefore went for both the X15 and Ace15 at the same time. He did change his mind at half time, where he switched out his X15 and stuck to just the Ace15 boots. A pretty unusual spot, but whatever floats your boat I suppose.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) - Nike Mercurial Superfly IV Electro Flare
Everyone has been so busy focusing on how deadly Lewandowski has been in front of goal that they seem to have forgotten Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He has scored 20 goals in 18 games and bagged his second hat trick this week! His immense early season form came with him wearing Nike Hypervenom Phantom II boots, but now it would appear he is trying to kick things up a few gear by moving to the Superfly. Bold move considering how well he has played in his other boots.
Isco (Real Madrid) - Nike Mercurial Vapor Electro Flare
Another player pulling the same stunt is Isco, who has also made the move to Mercurial from Hypervenom. He always prefered the Phinish and has still stuck to the version without the Dynamic Fit Collar, which in the Mercurial’s case is the Vapor.
Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) - Nike Hypervenom Phinish
Although the two aforementioned look to be moving away from the Hypervenom, you can’t fault the boots performances lately and during the weekend Big Daddy Kane had plenty of reason to use his Alan Shearer celebration, as he scored a hat trick for Spurs. He is over his early season slump and will be back to banging in the goals.
Paul Pogba (Juventus) - Nike Magista Obra NikeID
One of our favourite players in the world, because he is a true football boot enthusiast like us. He was rocking his newest NikeID creation during the weekend, as well as something else that caught everyones attention. On the back of his shirt he has written what appeared to be a +5 next to his shirt number, which got the rumor mill rolling for people. Turns out Pogba just has absolutely terrible handwriting and it actually said ‘75’, which was a tribute to Pelé, who turned 75 last Friday. Customised boots, customed shirt, Pogba truly is his own man.
Gianluigi Donnarumma (AC Milan) - PUMA evoSPEED 1.3
Speaking of remarkable squad numbers, out of nowhere Gianluigi Donnarumma comes along. It seems unbelievable, but his squad number 99 is actually the year he was born. The 16 year old played his first match for AC Milan this weekend and well they won, so he can’t have been completely terrible. An exciting prospect and I could imagine being an Italian goalkeeper named Gianluigi comes with some hype.
Some look to be moving away from the Hypervenom and picking up the Mercurial, while the ones who remain in the Hypervenom continue scoring. The spot that stole the show definitely what Christoph Kramer though - two completely different boots entirely - maybe the Isco and Aubameyang should do the same with the Hypervenom and Mercurial?
