The world’s absolutely biggest football stars currently have the pleasure of spending their summer in Brazil, at the World Cup. This year’s World Cup has been a Mekka of boot spots and while we yesterday had our weekly boot spots, we today bring you a small overview of the boots, which the biggest stars at the World Cup are wearing.
Neymar Jr. – Nike Hypervenom Phantom Bright Crimson/Volt/Black
There is nothing left to be said about Neymar Jr. that hasn’t already been said. Since he started playing for Santos in the Brazilian league, Neymar Jr. has been seen as the next big footballing hero in his homeland. Legends of the game, like Pelé and Ronaldinho have compared him to Messi, which is great praise indeed. Neymar signed with Nike in 2009 and in 2011 that contract was extended by 11 years. Since the Hypervenom was launched last year Neymar has been the front-figure for the boot, playing in every colourway since the boot was launched. At the World Cup Neymar has been wearing the Nike World Cup colourway Bright Crimson/Volt/Black and already in the tournament’s first game, he showed how deadly he can be in his boots, scoring twice.

Andres Iniesta – Nike Magista Obra Volt/Metallic Gold Coin/Black
Iniesta is at his third World Cup for his country. The 30 year old Spaniard has won everything worth winning in football. From the Spanish League, to the Champions League for Barcelona, as well as the World Cup and European Championship with Spain. His crowning moment still has to be the World Cup final in 2010, where he scored the deciding goal in extra time against Holland. But what makes Iniesta special at this year’s World Cup is not how much he has won, but rather what he is wearing on his feet. The last four years Iniesta has helped Nike develop their newest revolution in football, which was presented as the Nike Magista Obra. And even though Iniesta has been one of the only players half living up to his reputation in the first two games at the World Cup, he and his Magista boots were not enough to stop them from shockingly being eliminated from the tournament.
