Before the game against Leicester City, Adama Traore made an urgent request for full black studs. We trace this back to you.

In the spotlight for several times now, Adama Traoré also does not go unnoticed from a crampons point of view. Indeed, it has been months since the Wolverhampton player wears an all-white Nike Mercurial Vapor customized via the Mercurial By You tool. Before that he also used a custom pair of crampons but where white and blue were mixed. Apparently not affiliated with an equipment manufacturer or even light years away from wearing the latest colors of the American brand, Adama Traoré has evolved with a pair of full black Mercurial Vapor 13 against Leicester City. A pair that was urgently requested by the Spanish international …

If we know the history of this full black Mercurial Vapor, we do not know the reason for this urgent request made by Adama Traoré to Toots Boots, the English specialist in all black shoes. Relayed by TootsBoots social networks, the story of Adama Traoré’s crampons is, on the other hand, quite interesting and allows us to know a little more about the relationship between the players and the crampons. Indeed, it was Saturday afternoon that the Wolves player made an express request to the English customizer. Delivered by an Uber driver, the two white pairs of Mercurial Vapor were to turn black for the next afternoon and the game against Leicester City. After a few hours of work and black paint the entire upper and gold paint on the outsole, both pairs were returned to the player who then played with them. A pretty crazy story then.

If the full black pair of the player trained at FC Barcelona did not shine against the leader of the Premier League, the choice of this color and the fact of entirely concealing the Nike swoosh is however quite interesting. While it does not seem contractually linked to a brand, the player still wanted to hide the fact of wearing the comma of the American brand. What if Adama Traoré was negotiating with another brand at the moment? We will of course follow this burning issue in the coming days …
