Let's get started...
Milan Skriniar - Inter Milan v AC Milan (Italian Serie A) - Puma FUTURE 5 Spark
What are the chances of being called Milan and then going onto to play for Inter Milan? Only if Skriniar could see into the future. Funny that as he helped his side win the last ever Milan derby at San Siro with a 4-2 win. Milan Skriniar is Diego Godin's centre back partner and his physicality complements Godin's composure. Milan is seen competing against Zlatan wearing Puma FUTURE 5 from the Puma Spark Pack. Going for the laces tied is an option with the NetFit upper on the FUTURE 5.
Cristiano Ronaldo - Verona v Juventus (Italian Serie A) - Nike Mercurial Superfly Future Lab
What we like about this boot spot is the shirt combo along with it. The pinky/red pop from the Juve, adidas and Jeep logo give this a great look. But of course the main thing here is that Ronaldo scored again this weekend in Nike Mercurial Superfly's, his favoured boot since we met him 15 years ago. The recent Future Lab launch from Nike can be seen throughout the leagues around the world.
Joe Rankin-Costello - Blackburn Rovers v Fulham (English Championship) - adidas Predator Archive
Now, you may not see these boots too often around the Premier League and other major European leagues but every now and then they'll pop up. The adidas Predator Archive which disrupted onto the scene in December 2019. A mixer and mash-up of some of the best adidas Predator boots ever made, all decided by two massive predator boots collectors and we can say they done a great job. Joe Rankin-Costello is a 20-year-old English baller for Blackburn Rovers in the Championship. Nice little kit and boot combo going on there. You can actually cop your pair online at Prodirectsoccer.com would you believe.
Leo Messi - Real Betis v Barcelona (Spanish La Liga) - adidas Nemeziz 19.1 Mutator
We all know Messi is an adidas baller but how often to get this close to the left foot of the genius? Leo wears a pair of adidas Nemeziz 19.1 from the latest release from adidas 'Mutator' pack. It's obvious what attributes Messi holds but it effectively balances it out with the tooling of the Nemeziz; agility, balance, touch, quick movements, light. Cop yours and become just 1% of the goat at Prodirectsoccer.com.
Jacob Pepper - Brisbane Roar v Adelaide United (Australian A-League) - Mizuno Morelia II Made in Japan 'Victory'
Okay, unlike Leo Messi you may never of heard of Jacob Pepper but he still plays pro football in Australia so must have something about him. We noticed he must be a bit of a player as he's seen wearing a pair of Mizuno Morelia Neo II from last weeks Victory Pack release from Mizuno. The gold and white tones throughout the boot are so nice on the classic silhouette. Bag your pair now at Pro:Direct Soccer for that look, feel and presence on pitch.
Kevin Volland - Bayer Leverkusen v Borussia Dortmund (German Bundesliga) - Nike Mercurial Vapor Future Lab
What a game it was on Saturday night as Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund played out in a 7 goal thriller which eventually saw Leverkusen taking all 3 points. Kevin Volland was at the heart of all things good for Leverkusen as he notched 2 in a valiant display. Running out in a pair of Mercurial Vapor's from the hot Nike 'Future Lab' launch in January we saw another lovely kit and boot combo.
