Our friends at Sneaker Report have put together a very interesting little list of the 25 best players and the reasons behind their chosen footwear on the field. Sure, some of it is based on money, but each player has his own particular needs when it comes to style and function. Curious which boot Eden Hazard was wearing when he did or didn’t kick the ball boy? You’ll find the answer in this list.
Outside of the aforementioned Hazard info (he wears the Nike GS Concept II, which is well known for its rib-kicking qualities…or not), Cesc and his Pumas, Neymar and his Nike Vapors, and Leo and his adiZeros make appearances. Unfortunately, wearing the same boots as Lionel Messi won’t turn you into Lionel Messi, but it might give you the added bit of confidence you need to score the game-winner in your Sunday league match.
Falcao wears Pumas. How scary would a falcon with two vicious pumas in its talons be? Pretty damn scary.
