Last 6 Boot Additions


Here’s 6 of my latest additions to my collection!

Here we got:

  • Nike Mercurial Superfly II “Safari”, first boot in Cristiano Ronaldo signature boots. A crazy colourway!
  • Nike Mercurial Superfly IV “What the Mercurial”. Consists of 16 slices of the most memorable Mercurials in the history, all combined to a single boot!
  • SB50 Nike Vapor Untouchable 2, an american football boot with so much class that it really reminds me of Nike Mercurial Superfly IV!
  • Adidas Ace16+ PureControl custome painted by a local artist maalinetti. Revealed in eraly 2016 and much talked boot with laceless technology. I decided to add some white to the boot and they ended up really great.
  • Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR SE Sg-Pro, there is not much I need to tell about these boots. Only 100 pairs made globally and one of the most sought after boots!
  • Adidas Predator Accelerator Sg, last but not least! One of the rarest, if not the rarest, Predator ever made. Made in Germany and a proffesional soleplate with screw in studs. If you know your Predators then you know how rare these are! 😉

Custome Adidas Ace16+ PureControl


So everyone have heard about the Adidas Ace16+ PureControl boots that were released in early 2016, at least you know the boot if I mention the laceless technology? 

I had them custome painted 😉


I had them custome AirBrush painted at a local artist maalinetti.com and we added some white colour to the soleplate and slowly transforming back to green on the upper of the boot! 


It really ended up great! The green and white colour really works together, maybe even better than the original colourway?

Adidas Predator Accelerator Sg “Made in Germany” 

So I haven’t added too many Adidas boots lately, maybe cause I haven’t really been a fan of the generations of Adidas 😕But now I recieved a boot that is definitely one of the rarest Adidas boots ever made, if not the rarest of them all… If you know, you know 👌🏻


The boots were only made for some chosen proffesional players and are made in Germany. The boots got higher quality leather and stitching. Also the huge upgrade on these is the soleplate with screw in studs!


The hunt after few more original studs starts now, so if you got any original Adidas screw in studs in grey from year 1998-2004 then send a DM 🙏🏻

Year of 2006 was a great year!

What comes to football boots the year of 2006 was a superb year for many brands! 

  
Nike released the Mercurial Vapor III, maybe the best Vapor ever made. Adidas continued their Predator range with the Absolute and introduced the F50.6 Tunit. Puma made a comeback with the Puma v1.06, and really competed once again with Nike and Adidas!

 
I bet we all have some memories back in 2006? If so please share the moments!

Speed Boots!

  

Some of the lightest boots in history!1. Adidas F50 Adizero 99g: 99 gram

2. Adidas F50 Adizero Prime: 145 gram

3. Puma evoSpeed SL Ducati: 158 gram

4. Nike GS Concept: 160 gram

5. Adidas Samba Primeknit: 165 gram

6. Nike Mercurial Superfly I: 180 gram

There is plenty more light boots out there but these are some of the most eye catching! 

  
Which is your favourite among these speed boots?

Adidas F50 Adizero 99 Gram

A landmark for football boot history. First ever football boot to weight just under 100 grams; the Adidas F50 Adizero 99 gram. Limited edition of 299 pairs made worldwide.  
Adidas spent over 2 years experimenting and testing which materials and components to use to reach two digits. The upper is made of a single layered lightweight textile material inspired by special material from NASA. The upper is not affected by any weather condition and it will always weight 99 grams.  
The super thin soleplate is made of polymide and is only 1 mm thick! Adidas has made everything to reduce weight.

  
The boot is so light that the durability gets weaker, that´s why Adidas included a tag with the boots saying “Only for the games that matter”.

Adidas Predator Precision Sg “Platinum”


One of my favourite boots of all time, the Adidas Predator Precision! As previous years Adidas used to release a new boot every Championship year. Adidas Predator Precision was released in 2000 during the Euro Cup 2000 in France. A major update from the earlier Predator models was that Adidas made the rubber fins thinner, more like rubber ribs that gave more swerve and power.

Adidas also added a fold over tongue which was locked to the boot with Velcro!


David Beckham was one of the big names that made this boot very popular. Everyone remembers the stunning last minute freekick goal against Greece in Euro 2000 wearing a white pair of the Predator Precision!


So what Adidas did was basically the first David Beckham signature boot, the Adidas Predator Precision Platinum Sg 2000! This boot was released in limited numbers and only in United Kingdom, France, Germany, USA and Japan. They were limited to 333 pairs in each country and they are individually numbered. They included a stunning presentation box made of aluminium, blocket and a holographic card with the same number as the boot!


I had been looking for these boots almost entire time that I have been collecting, since 2006. And finally last year I found a pair, numbered UK169/333.

The past and present time!

Remember the past and look to the future!  
In 1994 the football world changed when Nike released Tiempo and Adidas released Predator. Before that Puma had basically ruled the football boot market. But Nike and Adidas made a great expression to both the players and audience in 1994 World Cup in USA. In final between Italy and Brazil most of the players wore the Nike Tiempo or Adidas Predator! (Nike Tiempo in the picture is a remake from 2009.)

 It’s 2016 and both brands doing strong having knitted boots on market! When the knitted boots came out in 2014 there was some positive and negative reaction, as always when something new appears. But still everyone of us were curious to test this new knitted material.

Nike vs. Adidas

  
So a big question in todays football boot world is which knitted boot to choose? Nike Magista Obra “BHM” vs. Adidas Ace16+ PureControl? Definitely some of the top range boots out there!

  
Both of the boots feel comfortable and look really cool on foot. Nike uses laces and Adidas goes laceless. 

I asked the same question on my InstGram: @toffem as result I had 12 of 17 people who answered choosing Nike Magista Obra “BHM” over the Adidas Ace16+ PureControl!

  
Both great boots and high innovation from both brands.
