Written by Mathias Boughey-Svendsen

Our boot spots have been on a slight hiatus, but are back with a vengeance. Once again your one-stop for the biggest boot spots from the week that passed. Find the most unique boots worn by the pros here.

Gabriela Gutierrez (Sc Huelva) - Nike Magista Obra BHM (Black History Month)

In 2017, Nike have not brought out their Black History Month colourway to football boots. Maybe that is why Gabriela Gutierrez pulled out the 2016 Magista colourway to show her support for the February tradition. They are still one of most sought-after football boots in the world and to see them on-pitch is a rare sight indeed. Savor it!

Paul Pogba (Manchester United) - adidas ACE 17+ PureControl Custom Blue Blast

Paul Pogba is the absolute embodiment of adidas’ #FirstNeverFollows. He is the first to do so many things, including the first footballer to get his own emoji. To spice up his already pretty fresh Blue Blast PureControl boots, they have been printed with his now infamous emoji.

Lionel Messi (Barcelona) - adidas Messi 16.1 Blue Blast

Another Blue Blast player you may have heard about before, wore his new boots for the first time last week. They are definitely the flashiest boots in the pack and have already served the greatest player of all time well, as he scored against both Atletico Madrid on Wednesday and Bilbao this weekend (Even if the freekick against Bilbao was kinda lucky).

Henri Lansbury (Aston Villa) - adidas Gloro Speed of Light collection

Henri Lansbury is a man who enjoys the simpler things in life. Give him a pair of soft leather boots and he will be more than capable of running a midfield. He recently joined Villa from Nottingham Forest and that saw him switch from the red Speed of Light Gloro to the neon Speed of Light Gloro. He knows what he likes and likes what he knows.

Paulo Dybala (Juventus) - Nike Mercurial Superfly V Blackout

There might be contract trouble in Turin, as Dybala and Nike are discussing their future. It’s hard to say what the problem could be, but the whole thing meant that Paulo Dybala wore a blackouted pair of his prefered boots, the Nike Mercurial Superfly V.

Eden Hazard (Chelsea) - Nike Mercurial Vapor XI Radiation Flare Pack

A man who doesn’t need convincing that his Mercurial boots are the way to go is Eden Hazard. Absolutely flying in the Radiation Flare Pack boots and made the entire Arsenal back-four look silly every time he drove at them. He truly is the essence of Mercurial.
