He's the man leading the Predator charge in the Premier League and now Arsenal's reliant Robin has landed a pair of bespoke adipower boots in time for the new year. Making his first appearance in the Black/Warning boots after a long stint in the UCL editions, Van Persie's footwear had some noticeable differences.After a countless number of requests from the SoccerBible boot-spotting faithful asking for a full blown investigation into the matter, we can now bring you exclusive images of Van Persie's custom adipower Predator boots from Sunday's league clash between Manchester City and Arsenal. Share your thoughts online, on Twitter and on Facebook. Unlike us boot-buying minnows, the world's best football players often don't settle for out-of-the-box normality. As was the case on Sunday, Arsenal's goal-machine had his SG Black/Warning adipower Predators fitted with a custom sole-plate. It was an unusual move for the Arsenal no.10 who had only previously worn the sprint-frame outsole. We can only assume that RVP wasn't a fan of the standard adipower SG stud configuration. What do you make of Van Persie's new custom adipower Predator soccer shoes? Have you spotted any other custom football boots out there you want us to feature?

1st, they remind me of the adipure 2 soleplate
not looking very nice tbh
traction is vital in football
Each player seems to have their own preference. It must be hard when you find a boot that you love only for your sponsors to demand you upgrade and change to support their new product. It's no wonder some like to keep at least the sole plate similar if they have come to trust it
is his sole-plate not the same one that was on SG predator pulses, absolutes and power-swerves? it looks very similar with clip in studs.
Definitely looks like an older traxion soleplate, perhaps from an older version predator.
Missing a pair of studs.... but could he be playing in a pair of absilion? ;))))
They are the SG soleplate of the first generation F50 (and F50+'s)
www.bebo.com/.../view see for yourself
i would need more traction than that
looks like old school preds and adipures
@Matt24: Nice spot. Old soleplate/absilion combo?? ;)
it seems like first adipure or f50+ soleplate
and i's not new this thing for him take a look
4rvp is the best right now
looks ugly w/ these new-gen boots
those are power pulse soles... beck's loves em too.
Too much made of custom soleplates not like we can get them
getting the correct traxion on gameday is extremely important ------( if it aint broke then.......
They look fake with this plate !
sole plate like the predators absolute+
think they are the traxion sole plates.
i saw this on a bootspotting last week on a different website. possibly an inclusion of the miadidas?
it looks very weird in the last picture (left) and what's up with his ankle on the right pic??
looks kinda cheap.
@Woifei, they're ankle guards
