We saw a lot of crazy new boot releases in August. So we think it’s time to check out how they looked on pitch in the past month.

Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City - Real Madrid 7/8) - Nike Phantom GT

Nike launched the Phantom GT in the beginning of August with Kevin De Bruyne as one of their front figures. The boots are made for the skillful players. And De Bruyne really showed his skills and qualities against Real Madrid.

Lionel Messi (Barcelona - Napoli (8/8) - adidas Nemeziz Messi The Journey

The Argentinian magician got another pair of signature boots from adidas when The Journey was launched. A pair of boots that honours the journey Messi has taken from childhood to becoming one of the best ever. And of course he scored wearing these!

Serge Gnabry (Bayern München - Chelsea 8/8) - adidas X Ghosted

Another great launch from adidas - a whole new boot. The latest X. And it was quite a success for Gnabry to wear these since Bayern won the game. And the Champions League a few weeks later.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (Atalanta - PSG 12/8) - PUMA Ultra

A brand new silo from PUMA came to life in August - the Ultra. And it’s all about speed. The flashy, orange were on the feet of Choupo-Moting, who scored the winner for PSG against Atalanta in the last minute of the game.

Neymar Jr. (Atalanta - PSG 12/8) - Nike Mercurial Vapor Jogo Prismático

Another boot spot from this game. The focus was also on Neymar who wore his signature boots for the first times, even though they were launched in the spring. Since the French league was cancelled he hadn't been able to show off the beauties before this game. And they gave him luck since PSG won it.

Kylian Mbappé (PSG - Bayern München 23/8) - Nike Mercurial Superfly Mbappé Rosa

Last boot spot of August 2020. And what a way to finish. The second signature boot of one of the best players in the world - Mbappé. These boots are a nod to the classic Vapor 4 which was the first pink boot from Nike. Even though PSG lost the final, Mbappé really stood out and showed everyone how to wear an amazing boot!
