Our last boot spotting on the old site! We had to give the forever popular boot spotting articles one last hurrah until we settle into our new home at soccerreviews.com (actually you can take a little peek at the new site now;)) We’ve got some stock standard spots as well as one or two unique ones from various football games played in the last few days.
Andreas Iniesta (Spain vs Czech Republic) – CTR 360 Maestri II
A few weeks ago, we were alerted by a SER reader that Iniesta has a unusual sole plate on his CTR 360 Maestris. This picture gives us a good view of his sole and it’s definitely unusual. We’re fairly sure it isn’t a regular non-Elite version of the Maestris, but it also looks like he might even have a heel counter on his boot, something not normally featured on the CTR 360 Maestri. We’ll tell you more when we find out more about these boots.
Darren Bent (Wales vs England) – Umbro Speciali
I might be putting my neck on the line here, but I think Darren Bent is wearing the Umbro Speciali as he continued his outstanding goal scoring form for the Three Lions in their 2-0 win against the Welsh at the Millennium stadium.
Roberto Carlos (Zenit vs FC Anzhi) – Mizuno Morelia
Well that’s not a foul! These blue Mizuno Morelia’s have a famous reputation amongst South American footballers thanks to it’s kangaroo leather upper and also it’s pretty light weight, a bit like the Adipure SL.
Scott Parker (Wales vs England) – ?????
I have absolutely no idea what Scott Parker is wearing here. The tongue could suggest it’s a blackout Puma King but I’m really not too sure. I’ve posted two different angles and I’ll let the readers debate about this one.
Mauro Rosales (Houston Dynamo vs Seattle Sounders) -Â F50 Tunit
Cracking little retro boot spot by Jose Reyes here. Everyone likes a retro boot spot and this one is a classic. These boots are over 3 seasons old and Rosales has done really well to preserve these boots in top condition.
Jason Garey (Houston Dynamo vs Seattle Sounders) – Under Armour Blur Pro
Jose Reyes is at it again! This time with an unreleased UA boot which was exclusively revealed on SER this month. Designed for direction changes and acceleration, we may start to see more football boots from the compression gear company in the future.
Antonio Cassano (Italy vs Slovenia) – Diadora Kobra K-Pro
Another quirky boot spot. We rarely see the Diadoras on our boot spotting and here’s Italy striker Cassano giving Diadora some much needed exposure. The Kobra features a 100% Kangaroo leather and features that enhance a player’s first touch.
Javier Martina (Portland Timbers vs Toronto FC) – Nike Mercurial Superfly II
While it may not seem like much, it seems that Martina has tried to personalize his cactus Superflys! He’s tried to use a texta to make it a blackout boot. I don’t think it looks right but let’s hope it’s what he intended!
That’s it for this week’s boot spotting. What do you think Scott Parker is wearing above?
