Lassana Diarra Joins Adidas

Update 29/01/2016: Lassana Diarra yesterday announced on his Twitter that he has joined Adidas. After he had worn various different cleats in the past few months, he will wear the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit Boots from now on.

Adidas, New Balance or Nike? Olympique Marseille midfielder Lassana Diarra could join New Balance after he debuted the launch colorway of the New Balance Visaro Cleats in yesterday's Ligue 1 match against Nantes FC.

Lassana Diarra, who was recently called up for the France national football team, has been wearing a ton of different boots in the past years, while he laced up in the Nike Magista Opus Boots at the start of the 2015-16 season. However, he since then switched to Adidas Ace Boots (September 2015) while he has now moved to yet another brand.

Lassana Diarra wears a non-modified version of the launch colorway of the New Balance Visaro Boots. Combining a honeycomb upper structure with an external heel counter from more stability, the New Balance Visaro Cleat is perfect for a player such as Diarra who controls the game as midfielder.

But how likely is it that Lassana Diarra has actually joined the Boston-based brand? As he has switched between different boots on a regular basis and is not wearing the latest colorway, it's highly improbable that he has already joined New Balance but rather probably that he has bought himself a pair of the control boot.

However, only the coming weeks and Lassana Diarra's boot choices will show whether the French midfielder has joined the newcomer in the football business or if he is still without a contract. So watch out for his boots in the next matches.
