Football News > Big Weekend Football Boots Spotting - 29/03/10

It's the SoccerBible staple for your Monday - essential Boot Spotting from another big weekend of football around the World's major leagues.


In the Premier League, Chelsea hit Aston Villa for seven, the Madrid derby served up a 5 goal thriller and we welcome the return of the MLS. Check out who wore what from an action packed weekend...


Frank Lampard (Chelsea)
adidas adiPure III

Lee Chung-Yong (Bolton)
Nike Mercurial Superfly II

OK, so not a new boot spot, but we couldn't ignore Lampard's haul of 4 goals against Aston Villa. Wearing the new UCL version of the adiPure III, "Super Frank" also managed a couple of assists and easily scooped the man-of-the-match award.

Wearing the alternate launch colour for the second week in a row and another good example of boot and kit colour matching - even adding in Nike (RED) laces to complete the look!



Glen Johnson (Liverpool)
Lotto Zhero Leggenda Tre

Luka Modric (Spurs)
Nike Mercurial Vapor III

The maurading defender delivered another goal this weekend for the Reds in the Leggenda Tre boots. Now Johnson is an official ambassador for the Italian brand, we are looking forward to seeing him debut the upcoming Gravity Ultra range...

Whilst all around are switching to the new Superfly & Vapor boots, Croatian Modric still does the business in the highly regarded Mercurial Vapor III's. Modric must have a secret supply of Vapor III football boots, as this is the third different colourway he's sported already this season!



Florent Malouda (Chelsea)
Nike CTR360 Maestri

Joel Lindpere (NY Red Bulls)
Nike CTR360 Maestri

Malouda is in fine form at the moment and netted a double against Villa with the new colour CTR360 football boots. Having previously been a T90 icon, Malouda is another player enjoying the benefits of the control series of boots.

Lindpere also sported the new Team Red/Gold colour of the CTR360's against Chicago Fire. A superb result for the Bulls, as he scored the only goal of the game, on his debut, in the first official MLS match in the new $200 million Red Bull Arena!



Carlton Cole (West Ham United)
Nike T90 Laser III

Robbie Findley (Real Salt Lake)
Nike Mercurial Superfly II

The Hammers may be struggling at the moment in the league, but striker Cole has confidently changed from his usual Tiempo boots to the new "avatar" T90's. What do you think of this colour combo with the West Ham kit?!

Striker Findley took to the field with the new Superfly II boots, as reigning champions Real Salt Lake opened up the new campaign with an impressive 3-0 win away to San Jose.



Jose Reyes (Atletico Madrid)
Nike Mercurial Superfly II

Darron Gibson (Manchester United)
Nike T90 K-Laser III

The fiery Madrid derby didn't disappoint with an exciting 3-2 win for Real. Reyes got on the scoresheet in the first half, wearing the new Nike Mercurial Superfly II football boots, but couldn't stop the Madridistas ending up victorious.

Wearing the K-leather version of the new T90's which perfectly match the Manchester United kit, Gibson scored United's fourth to cement their return to the top of the Premier League table.

I personally really like this new boots spotting article look.

Cole's Lasers basically don't match the West Ham kit but still look incredible with it. Chung-Yong's Superflys and Gibson's K-Lasers looks good, too.

Maybe something very different. But St Kilda AFL player Brendan Goddard wore a very cool customized pair of CTR 360s. Just something a bit different...

This is just the same boot spotting as last week? -.-

Almost just new nike boots with two different boots. I don't mind seeing the new nikes but it's to one-sided.... :)

I may have missed this in another boot spotting forum or in the comments.

However if none of you have spotted it, it is interesting to see that Aguero has swapped from his Superflys to CTR360's. I saw this when Atletico Madrid played Real. I have also seen pictures of Ibrahimovic with CTR's on during training, maybe he is preparing to do the same switch.

March 29, 2010 3:58 PM

Tear707 said:

I have at least seen him play in Superfly's before, but maybe that was the one time he wore them. I dont know too much about his boot choice but before this weekend I have not seen him play in anything but Superfly's.  Last time i saw him he wore them in the Barca game.

TK10 reyes' goal was nothing special just a knock in... arbeloa's goal was a quality goal... takes it down like a dream on the chest from a 50 yard switch pass over the top from real's defense cuts in one way the defend slides past cuts back and cuts the ball across the keeper!  wonderful

look at the first picture. the vapors in the middle.are they new??

March 29, 2010 4:27 PM

Boot Spy said:

@Tear707 Aguero has worn CTR360's for a while now, but seems to switch between them and wearing Superfly's quite a lot!

March 29, 2010 4:31 PM

jraff1 said:

can bootspy confirm that lee chung-yong of bolton is wearing superflies and not vapors? Will this colourway of the superfly be released and if so when?

I think it is a flaw of a lot of the nike lines but particularly the vapor that they focus too much on mad colours. If they brought out blackout versions of the vapor, t90 and maestris they would sell like hot cakes!!!

adri the king said:


If Arbeloas goal was class, then what the ... was Torres first goal against Sunderland? :D

One of the best goals this season. Might be the best of them all. Power, placement and everything was absolutely perfection!

Btw Arbeloa seems to be a quite good striker ;) i've seen him 1 on 1 with the keeper a few times and he always seem to get a good finish :D

Is it just me or does it seem like that other guy on the Modric pic is wearing custom Preds X? Does anyone know who it is?

Adri The King and Football not Soccer you are right. I think they should have the same amount of each brand every week. Its not fair. In my opinion Adidas are better than Nike
