AS Roma's Iturbe Joins Adidas

Update (04/09/16): Iturbe has posted a snap on Friday that likely shows his new boots, the Solar Yellow Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit from the Speed of Light Pack. He already debuted the boots in yesterday's friendly against San Lorenzo, practically confirming his switch.

Here is a screenshot of the snap the Argentinian midfielder posted two days ago (thanks to @nicksblackmon for the hint).

Update (23/08/16): Juan Manuel Iturbe has debuted custom blacked-out Nike Mercurial Superfly 2016 boots after he previously laced up in the standard edition of Nike's Spark Brilliance Superfly boots. This is a clear hint that he could leave the Swoosh.

AS Roma striker Juan Manuel Iturbe has shown off a unique pair of Nike Mercurial Superfly Boots ahead of yesterday's Serie A clash against Bologna.

Update (24/11/15): Iturbe has debuted his new custom Nike iD Mercurial Superfly Cleats in the Champions League away game against Barcelona.

Even though Iturbe, who also laced up in blackout Nike Mercurial Vapor X Boots in this week's training session, switched back to the regular Squadron Blue Nike Mercurial Vapor 10 Boots for the match, we nevertheless decided to take a closer look at the one-of-a-kind boots worn by the Argentinian striker.

Iturbe Shows Off Unique Nike Mercurial Superfly Boots

Boasting the main color Gym Red, Iturbe's Nike Mercurial Superfly Boots draw inspiration from the colors of his club AS Roma. He combined the solid red upper with a black Swoosh, while the trademark Dynamic Fit collar also features the contrasting color black. But this is only logical as it's not possible to choose another color for the sock-like design using Nike's customization service NikeiD. And Nike's service might be also the reason why we won't see Iturbe wearing unique boots in an actual match.

As it's not possible to customize the cutting-edge low-cut version of the Nike Mercurial Boots using NikeiD, Iturbe is either forced to switch to the Superfly or has to create a red and black version of the Nike Mercurial Vapor 10 Boots on his own in order to debut one-of-a-kind boots.

We likely won't see them in an actual match, unfortunately. What do you think of Iturbe's one-of-a-kind Nike Mercurial Superfly Boots? Let us know in the comments below, and watch out for Iturbe's Boots in the coming weeks.
