Happy Birthday: Here's Xavi's Full Boot History

Barcelona legend Xavi Hernández celebrates his 37th birthday today. Now playing for Al-Sadd in Qatar, Xavi played for the Barcelona first team from 1998 to 2015, winning no less than eight league and four Champions League titles, while topping it off with the World Cup and two European championships with the Spanish national team. A legend in every sense of the word.



Xavi's legend status is only underpinned by him wearing just a single brand of football boots throughout those many years - Adidas. On the earliest picture of him that is available online, he is wearing classic Copa Mundial boots, although he picked up the Predator shortly afterwards.



He continued wearing the different iterations of the Adidas Predator that were released all the way until it was retired in the summer of 2015.



As most professionals, Xavi then switched to its "natural" successor, the Adidas Ace, which he still wearing these days. His most recent choice is the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit.
