Benoît Assou-Ekotto is famous for wearing classic and iconic football boots, and now the FC Metz left back has again caught our eyes as he laced up in one of the most famous soccer cleats Nike ever released - the golden Nike Air Legend R10 soccer cleat that Nike exclusively released for Ronaldinho in 2006.

Launched ahead of the knockout stage of the 2006 World Cup in Germany, the golden Nike Air Legend R10 Ronaldinho Boots are based on the Nike Air Legend Cleats, with only a few customizations for Ronaldinho. First, there's Ronaldinho's initial R on the iconic tongue instead of the regular version's Swoosh, and second, the heel of the gold Nike Air Legend R10 Football Boots showed the Brazil national team's 5 stars.
