Eden Hazard (Chelsea) Nike Mercurial Flyknit Ultra

Eden Hazard was only down to wear the Nike Mercurial Flyknit Ultra for a handful of games to support the limited edition release, but the Belgian has remained in them for the rest of the year.

But that hasn't proved to be the case, as he's more recently switched into a blackout of the Nike Tiempo 7.
