Luka Modric (Real Madrid) Nike Mercurial Vapor XII

Fresh from scooping the Ballon d'Or, Luka Modric had been seen training in his Nike Mercurial 'Touch of Gold' boots this week, but there was conjecture about whether he would wear them on pitch. That was silenced on the weekend when he wore them as Real Madrid beat Huesca 0-1.

David Luiz (Chelsea) Nike Magista Obra II

David Luiz could have his own page dedicated to the variety of Nike boots he wears, however, with him notching in Chelsea's win over high-flying Man City on the weekend, his choice of the Magista Obra from the 'Fast AF' Pack was worth a shout out here. This was one of the last colourways for the since retired Magista.

James McClean (Stoke) Nike Mercurial GS 360

With only 2018 pairs made available globally, you had to be pretty quick to get a pair of the 2018 Nike Mercurial Superfly GS 360. James McClean was obviously quick with the clicker. He showed off his pair when he came off the bench in Stoke's 2-0 win over Ipswich.

Yuriy Yakovenko (Esbjerg FB) adidas X 17+

In the swathes of blues, reds and volt that currently dominate the pitches at the moment, green stands out. Well it did on the feet of striker Yuriy Yakovenko in the Danish Superliga anyway. The Ukraininan, in his adidas X 17+ 'Deadly Strike' boots, was unable to prevent his Esbjerg side from being dismantled by table topping F.C. Copenhagen.

Scott Sinclair took to the field in a custom Nike Mercurial Vapor XII, matching the bursts of green to the Hoops' own green. OK, so it wasn't a perfect match, but it was a good effort. Celtic went on to give Kilmarnock a little reality check after their fine start to the season with a 5-1 mauling.
