'I Just Get My Boots For 30 Euro on eBay' - Here Are Our 5 Favorite Assou-Ekotto Boots

Benoit Assou-Ekotto celebrates his 33th birthday tomorrow. We take a look at the most outstanding soccer boots worn by Cameroon defender, including unique boot combos and classic boots.



Benoit Assou-Ekotto is famous for being not sponsored by any brand but wearing only the cleats he wants. One year ago, he made headlines globally after he revealed in an interview that he just gets his boots on eBay and that he would 'rather be free than to 'prostitute himself for a sponsor'. The FC Metz defender was not always a free agent but was sponsored both by Puma and Under Armour in the past before deciding to wear what he wants.

One of Assou-Ekotto's latest boot choice, the Adidas Predator Pulse was the first to feature Adidas' PowerPulse sockliner tech. PowerPulse was marketed to provide more powerful shots due to shifting the boots center of gravity closer to the point of impact.
