Football News > Pre-Season Football Boots Spotting - 26/07/10

There's been some great pre-season action since our boot spotters last reported back with their findings. Check out the latest boots being worn-in by the pro's ahead of the the new domestic seasons kick off...


Jose Mourinho (Real Madrid)
adidas Predator X

Nani (Man Utd)
Nike Vapor VI

Another new pair of boots for the Real Madrid supremo Jose Mourinho, who was previously snapped wearing a bespoke pair of blue adiZero's.

Nani continues to resist the lure of the Superfly's and is sticking with his preferred Vapor boots, which feature a lace-cover and no Nikesense stud.



Nedum Onouha (Man City)
Umbro Stealth Pro

Robbie Keane (Tottenham)
Nike T90 Laser III

Only unveiled this week, Onouha is the first player to wear the bold looking green and black Umbro Stealth boots.

Keane is back in the Spurs starting line-up after his loan spell with Celtic, which he has chosen to mark with some colour co-ordinated Laser III's, and note Keane has opted for the regular sole-plate.



Emmanuel Adebayor (Man City)
adidas F50 adiZero

Wes Brown (Man Utd)

The list of players opting to wear the chameleon adidas F50 adiZero football boots is growing quite large, and Adebayor is the most recent fan of the unique colourway.

Perhaps Wes Brown has been influenced by team-mate John O'Shea, as he has switched into the Concave boots, which seem suitable for a defender.



Stephen Ireland (Man City)
Nike Vapor Superfly I

Alexandr Hleb (Barcelona)
Puma v1.10

Stephen Ireland is known for being quite flash both off and on the pitch, but he's currently wearing some quite sensible platinum Superfly I football boots.

Hleb is back at Barcelona after his loan spell in Germany, and Hleb is wearing the latest v1.10 colourway which he has removed the lace-cover from.



Clemens Fritz (Werder Bremen)
Nike Elite Legend

Thierry Henry (New York)
Reebok Instante Pro

German right-back Clemens Fritz is one of the first players to wear the new Legend colourway, although we're not sure if Fritz is wearing the Elite versions or a customised regular pair due to the white stud tips.

Henry returned to haunt Spurs by scoring against them on his New York Red Bulls' debut. Interestingly, Henry is back in the Instante Pro I football boots, after wearing the new Instante Pro II's at the World Cup.



Jason Roberts (Blackburn)
adidas F50 adiZero

Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Barcelona)
Nike Vapor Superfly II

Jason Roberts has been a Predator wearer for some time, yet he is another player who has been convinced by the performance attributes of the adiZero's, which are having quite a profound effect on football.

Ibrahimovic will be looking to put a disappointing season behind him, and get back to his lethal best wearing the new cactus Superfly football boots.



Kyle Walker (Tottenham)
Umbro Stealth Pro

Alan Gordon (LA Galaxy)
Puma v1.10 Tricks

The new white and black Umbro Stealth football boots are a great match for the new Tottenham Hotspur kit, as modelled here by Kyle Walker.

LA Galaxy forward Alan Gordon is still wearing the Puma v1.10 Tricks football boots, one of the most interesting boot designs of the year.



Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)
adidas F50 adiZero

Nathan Eccleston (Liverpool)
Umbro Stealth Pro

Benzema was set to be a leading adiZero player at the World Cup, though he's probably quite happy he missed out now. Benzema is in pre-season training with Real Madrid and is wearing the yellow synthetic versions.

The Umbro Stealth Pro's have made quite a successful impression in the boot market, with a number of pro's happy to try them out, including Liverpool's promising talent Nathan Eccleston.



Adriano (Barcelona)
Nike Elite T90 Laser

Gareth Bale (Tottenham)
adidas F50 adiZero

New Barcelona signing Adriano is one of the first players we've spotted wearing the new Elite colourway, and we must say we think the black, red and carbon fibre combination looks quite classy.

Bale had probably his best ever football season last year, and will be looking to improve his performances wearing the adidas F50 adiZero's.



Thomas Hitzlsperger (West Ham)
Puma 1.10 PowerCat

Christopher Schindler (1860 Munich)
adidas adiPure III

West Ham fans will be hoping to see new signing Hitzlsperger, unleashing a few trademark long range strikes from his new Puma PowerCat football boots.

We haven't seen as many players as expected wearing the new true blue adiPure III's, and they're certainly eye-catching as shown here by Christopher Schindler.

Nani is absolutely right for sticking with the Vapor VI's. The Superfly II's have been absolute hell on the feet of everyone I've heard from.

I Messi I said:

Why is everyone wearing the Messi colour way :( They are his boots, And

@Nidas I think Max means that why is nobody wearing the new colour way eg. the cyan or the white AdiZero's, so stop trying to be smart ;)
