Every week, our eyes roam the fields around the world in search of the most beautiful pairs of football boots. It’s Monday and it’s time to show you our best finds.

Marcos Asensio (Real Madrid)

adidas Predator Accelerator

Stayed with Real Madrid during the international break, Marco Asensio trained with the latest reissue of the adidas Predator Accelerator. We were no longer used to seeing such offensive players with the Predator.

Leonardo Bonucci (Italy)

Nike Phantom GT

Leonardo Bonucci honored his 100th selection with Squadra Azzura last week. And to celebrate this symbolic milestone, his Nike equipment supplier has customized a pair of signature Phantom GTs that he proudly wore during this game.

Luka Modric (Croatie)

Nike Mercurial Vapor XIV

For his part, Luka Modric has become the most capped player in the history of the Croatian national team with 135 caps. Like Bonucci, he was honored with a signature pair strongly inspired by the checkered pattern so representative of Croatia.

Angel Di Maria (PSG)

adidas X new generation

After unveiling a new Predator and a new COPA earlier this year, Adidas could soon upgrade its X silo with the first tests of the pair already underway on the ground, by Angel Di Maria in particular.

Alexandre Jankewitz (Switzerland)

adidas f50.6 Tunit

This is a pair that we haven’t seen on the court for a long time, despite the fact that many players frequently opt for f50s. But that you already know if you follow our column on the shoes of the week in a regular way. With the U21 selection of Switzerland, Jankewitz showed himself with an adidas f50.6 Tunit from 2006.

James McClean (Irlande)

Nike Mercurial Superfly VIII By You

This guy is one of our favorite players just for those studs. The England international is a true Mercurial fan, jumping on each edition as soon as they are released and frequently customizing his pairs, like this Superfly 8 in the colors of his selection.

Ronan Curtis (Republic of Ireland)

Nike Mercurial Superfly V

Just amazing. In training with Ireland, Curtis opted for the Nike Mercurial Superfly V Quinto Triunfo, the pair unveiled by Nike in 2017 to celebrate Cristiano Ronaldo’s fifth Ballon d’Or. Something to make James McClean jealous.

Samuel Guibert (SC Bastia)

Nike Hypervenom Phantom III DF

Member of the footpack crew and SC Bastia player in National, Sam Guibert is a crampons enthusiast who has taste. Proof of this is with this Nike Hypervenom Phantom III DF from pack «FAST OFF» the January 2018.

Allan Saint-Maximin (Newcastle United)

PUMA ULTRA SL 21

In training with Newcastle, Allan Saint-Maximin caught our attention with his pair of PUMA ULTRA SL. Is there a faster combo?

Kyriakos Papadopoulos (Greece)

Nike Tiempo Legend V

We end the week with a look back seven years thanks to the Tiempo Legend V of Kyriakos Papadopoulos. One of the most memorable colorways of the pair.
