Kovacic Joins Real Madrid Training Wearing Cut-Off Nike Hypervenom Phantom Boots

Mateo Kovačić today completed his first-ever Real Madrid training session - wearing cut-off Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Boots.



Mateo Kovacic has joined Real Madrid from Inter Milan in a €35m deal. Real Madrid officially presented new midfielder Mateo Kovacic to fans at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Wednesday.

While Kovacic was wearing the orange Nike Hypervenom Phinish Lightning Storm Pack Boots yesterday, the Croatia international laced up in cut-off Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Cleats in today's training session.

Mateo Kovacic laced up in a modified version of the Wolf Grey Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Boots featuring a lower Dynamic Fit collar. Apart from the cut-off Dynamic Fit collar, Kovacic's Boots are the same as the regular version of the Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Cleats.



Kovacic already cut off the sock of the Nike Hypervenom Phantom Boots in early August 2015, but nobody spotted his cut-off Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Boots until today's training.



Kovacic is the second Real Madrid player who cut off the trademark Dynamic Fit collar of the Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Boots after Isco already debuted a modified version of the boots in early August 2015.



Meanwhile, Toni Kroos laced up in his modified Adidas 11pro 2014 Boots, and Cristiano Ronaldo was wearing his low-cut Hyper Pink Nike Mercurial Superfly Boots.

It may be no coincidence that as many high-profile players cut off the iconic sock of the Nike Hypervenom 2 Boots. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
