While referees are rather known for wearing traditional boots such as the Nike Premier or the Adidas Copa Mundial Kevin Friend opted for the cutting-edge Nike Flyknit Ultra soccer boot, Nike's most advanced football boot available currently. Just as a lot of other players and referees, he also used rainbow laces to support the #RainbowLaces campaign.



In fact, it was not the first time that Kevin Friend sported Nike Flyknit Ultra soccer cleats as he already laced up in the completely blackout Nike Flyknit Stealth football boots in early October, just a few days after their official launch.
