Ivan Sunjic (Birmingham City) Nike Tiempo Legend 9

The Carabao Cup got underway last week, with Birmingham City scraping past Colchester 1-0 in the first round. In that match the Blues' Croatian midfielder Ivan Šunjić was spotted wearing the sleek Nike Tiempo Legend 9 'Renew Pack' colourway – an option that's not usually supported by pros but that looks the part, with the blue accents tying nicely with Birmingham's kit.

Giovanni Lo Celso (Tottenham Hotspur) adidas Predator Freak low .1

This week saw the reveal of the new EQT pack, which saw adidas celebrating 30 years since the brand revolutionised its performance wear. They did so by wrapping the Predator Freak in the iconic OG EQT colourway. Kicker was that it's currently only available Stateside, but that didn't stop Spurs midfielder Giovanni Lo Celso lacing up in the .1 version in training and in Spurs' impressive opening victory against current champions Man City.

Memphis Depay (Barcelona) adidas X Speedflow +

Barca new boy Memphis Depay continues to flirt with a variety of boot brands, and this week saw the Dutch star slipping into the laceless Adidas X Speedflow + in training. He was back in his Under Armour Magnetico Pro for his side's 4-2 win over Real Sociedad. What brand will he end up signing with?

Mesut Ozil (Fenerbahce) Concave Halo+

Really interesting switch for Fenerbahçe's Mesut Ozil. Having been a free agent for for the last year, enjoying the freedom of wearing whatever boots he likes, from throwback Adidas Predator Accelerators to Nike Mercurial Vapors, it now looks like the former Germany international has settled on a new brand... And it's not what you'd expect, with the midfielder lacing up in the Concave Halo+ for his side's 1-0 win over Demispor. in their Süper Lig opener.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool) Nike T90 Laser III

Great to see The Ox back in action this week after what was a frustrating campaign last season due to injuries. The Liverpool midfielder geared up for the 21/22 season kick off by lacing up in the classic Nike T90 Laser III in training, before switching back into his 'Motivation Pack' Phantom GT for his side's opening 3-0 win over Norwich.

Oleksandr Zinchenko (Manchester City) PUMA King Platinum

Manchester City's Oleksandr Zinchenko came off the bench in his side's 1-0 loss to Spurs in the cleanest of clean pairs of PUMA King Platinum. The Ukrainian has been wearing the Ultra 1.3 of late, but apparently fancied a fresh switch up for the first game of the season. Can't argue with that.

Osasuna played Liverpool in their last preseason friendly this week, and in that match forward Chimy Avila was spotted wearing the sleek and laceless adidas 'Escape Light' X Speedflow +. The black out option is not often seen on pro pitches, and Avila was back in the 'Meteorite Pack' colourway when he came off the bench in his side's 0-0 opening La Liga match with Espanyol.

In the second leg of that match, which the Norwegian side won 2-1, forward Emil Konradsen Ceïde laced up in the adidas F50 Adizero IV in its eye-popping "Neon Pink/Running White/Solar Blue" colour combination from 2014. Hard to miss.
