Unisport boot spots are back | What has happened in September?


Written by William

It’s been a while since we had a proper boot spot here. So let’s have one today where we will look at some of the most interesting spots from September in the world of football.

Nicolas Pépé (Arsenal 1/9) - adidas Nemeziz 19+ Marvel

We’ll start of with a great choice of footwear from new Arsenal winger Nicolas Pépé. In the dramatic North London Derby against Tottenham, he wore a pair of the limited edition of the Nemeziz 19+ with the Spider-Man themed print on it.

Memphis Depay (Netherlands 6/9) - Under Armour Spotlight

The boots themselves aren’t that big of a deal since this is the colour of the newest Spotlight from Under Armour. The great about this is the combination with the orange kit from the Netherlands. We can’t get enough of players taking that extra step to make a great combo for the fans!

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool 14/9) - adidas X 19.1 Input Code / Hard Wired

Mo Salah is one of the front figures of the adidas X boots. And against Newcastle he played in the brand new Input Code colourway - in the first half. Because after halftime, he showed up in the old Hard Wired colourway instead. We’re a bit curious about this. But it seemed to help since he scored in the second half.

Álvaro Morata (Atlético Madrid 21/9) adidas X 99.1

This one really made us happy. The first two versions of the ultralight adidas boots were not playable due to the low weight. The newest version, the 99.1, is a bit heavier than the others and this makes them able to be used on pitch - which we saw when Morata wore them against Celta Vigo. And white boots always look great with the Atlético home kit.

Michy Batshuayi (Chelsea 22/9) - adidas F50 Adizero II Leather

This is one for the hardcore boot spotters out there. Normally, Michy Batshuayi plays in the adidas X 19.1. But against Liverpool he showed up in a pair of Adizero II in the cool leather version, which really makes us miss these lightweight beauties. Once again - there’s just something about players who give us something special to talk about. Nice one, Michy!

Hakan Çalhanoğlu (AC Milan 26/9) - adidas Predator Precision / adidas F50 Messi

We did the classic one and saved the best for last. And talking about classic - against Livorno, Çalhanoğlu wore a pair of the remake of the iconic Predator Precision, which came out in the beginning of 2019. But it doesn’t stop there. In the second half he showed up in the F50 Adidas signature boots for Lionel Messi.

Çalhanoğlu is a man who knows his boots. He even played with the Precision remakes in the following games as well. Let’s just ignore that Milan have lost those and focus on the boot choice instead.
