Hamza Rafia (Juventus U23) adidas Predator Mutator Archive

Juventus' Hamza Rafia has managed to get his hands on the limited edition Predator Archive Mutator to wear on pitch. Launched ahead of the next-gen Predator Mutator, the Archive edition combined some of the most striking elements of Predators over the years.


Andrew Durante (Western United) PUMA Future 4.1 Balr

Dutch fashion label BALR linked up with PUMA for a special collaborative capsule in October 2019 headlined by a limited edition Future 4.1 football boot. Wrapped in their signature black and white colourway the boot was adopted by a few professional players including Western United's Andrew Durante.


Albert Adomah (Cardiff City) PUMA evoSPEED SL

Not many players in the professional game have a boot archive as deep as Albert Adomah's. The Cardiff winger has worn numerous limited, custom and throwback boots throughout his career, and his move to Cardiff in January has given him the chance to pair up his PUMA evoSPEED SL from 2015 with his new club colours.


Rey Manaj (Barcelona) Nike Mercurial Superfly VII

Barcelona's Rey Manaj has been busy whipping up his own custom Nike Mercurial Superfly VII colourway, by opting for a traditional black and white combination to wear on pitch. While most custom jobs tend to go for more wilder looks, Manaj has gone the opposite direction with a low-key design.


Max Burgess (Western United) Nike Hypervenom GX

Max Burgess took things back to 2017 at the weekend as he slipped into the Nike Hypervenom GX. The boot was launched to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the '97 Air GX football boot, and in turn created one of the most distinctive limited edition releases of the year.


Crystal Thomas (Perth Glory) Nike Tiempo Legend V

Crystal Thomas pulled out one of Nike's greatest women's football boots pack this week. Launched for the 2015 World Cup in Canada, the Mercurial Superfly IV, Magista Obra and Tiempo Legend V each received corresponding colour-ups targeted at maximum on-pitch visibility, and the Tiempo was an absolute stunner.


Pelly Ruddock (Luton) Nike Hypervenom II

Another player sporting a throwback Nike generation at the weekend was Luton's Pelly Ruddock. And once again, it was a women's specific colourway as the turquoise wrap on the Hypervenom II was 'officially' launched as that, however, if it fits then it's job done.


Kenedy (Getafe) adidas X 19+

Getafe's Kennedy pulled out the boots of the week as he showed off his incredible custom artwork on the adidas X 19+ silo. The Brazilian, on loan from Chelsea, commissioned French artist Silni to commemorate the boots with images of Kobe Bryant in a LA Lakers colour theme. A stunning tribute.


Odysseas Vlachodimos (Benfica) Nike Mercurial Superfly VII

Benfica Goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos has also customised his Nike Mercurial Superfly VII football boots with a colourway that is essentially a flip of Rey Manaj's. A clean white upper with black details, including his name in place of the usual 'MERC' branding.


Anco Jansen (FC Emmen) adidas Predator Precision

Anco Jansen was another player in limited edition footwear at the weekend as he laced up in the recreation of David Beckham’s 2001 Predator Precision in the same crisp white, silver and red colourway, which were launched to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of the first Predator. Tucking the tongue under the laces though; not sure DB would approve of that.
