Lazio's Luis Alberto has been training in last year's adidas release that celebrated 25 years of the Predator, and he opted specifically for the gold Zinedine Zidane accelerator, which has proven to be far more popular than the Beckham-inspired Precision. Sorry Dave.

Sebastiano Esposito (Inter Milan) Nike Mercurial Superfly VI

Inter Milan youngster Sebastiano Esposito converted his Nike Mercurial Superfly VI boots into a slip on design by removing the laces.

Moritz Volz (RB Leipzig) Nike Tiempo Legend V

Former Fulham and Arsenal full-back Moritz Volz, now a coach for RB Leipzig, showed that either A) he has nice taste in a throwback pair of boots, or B) He hasn't got a new pair since he ended his playing career. This because he turned out for preseason training in 2014's "Turquoise/White/Hyper Crimson/Black" Tiempo Legend V.
