Ivan Rakitić Trains in Laceless Adidas Ace PureControl Boots

FC Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitić has become the second La Liga player to be spotted wearing the revolutionary laceless Adidas boots after Atletico's Koke already laced up in the blackout boots last week.

As we revealed earlier today, the first-ever laceless Adidas Boot will be called Adidas Ace PureControl. Set to released in January 2016, the Adidas Ace PureControl Boots combine a knitted upper with a revolutionary laceless design for ultimate touch and a sock-like fit.

Rakitic laced up in what looks like a non-modified version of the laceless Adidas boots, similar to all other players who already trained in the revolutionary product.

Officially revealed by Oscar, Mesut Özil and Rakitić himself on November 2, it's no surprise that Rakitić has now laced up in the first-ever laceless Adidas boot. However, Ivan Rakitić will switch back to the Solar Red Adidas Ace Primeknit Boots for the Champions League clash against AS Roma, while he will debut the laceless boots not before Adidas has released the Solar Green Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl launch paint job.

Badstuber, Koke, Matic, Alli and now Rakitić. Have you spotted any other players wearing the cutting-edge laceless Adidas Ace PureControl Boots? Let us know in the comments below.
