No More Adidas? Kaka Trains in Blackout Boots

Update (05/02/16): Kaká is back in blackout boots. Thanks to @sahydnevado_30 for the spot, which appears to show the boots being the same Mizuno Morelias worn by the player before, just blacked out. Was it maybe because Mizuno tweeted about him? Remember, unsigned MLS players are technically only allowed to wear blackouts or Adidas-branded boots.

Update (30/01/16): Returning to training with Orlando City, Kaka was spotted wearing branded Mizuno Morelia boots, all but confirming the switch from Adidas to the Japanese brand. Thanks to @gueysports for supplying the spot.

Brazil superstar Kaka has been training for the first time in blackout Mizuno Boots after he previously laced up in Adidas Ace K-Leather Boots and a blackout version of the Adidas Copa Mundial Boots. Brazil are currently preparing for their crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier match against Argentina on Thursday.

Orlando City midfielder Kaka, who also brought his young son Luca along to training, has been wearing Adidas Football Boots for actually his entire career while he now has switched brands for the first time we can remember.

Kaka Trains in Blackout Mizuno Morelia II Boots

Close-up pictures of Kaka's Mizuno Morelia 2 Cleats.

Kaka laced up in a blackout version of the classic Mizuno Morelia II Boots. Featuring a super soft Kangaroo leather upper, the Mizuno Morelia 2 Cleats are made for ultimate ball control and comfort. The Mizuno Morelia II Cleat is 30g lighter than the original Mizuno Morelia Boot and is, amongst others, worn by PSG midfielder Thiago Motta.

Kaka completely blacked-out the upper of his Mizuno Morelia 2 Boots, which is usually an indicator that Kaka has not joined the Japanese brand but is wearing their boots because he prefers them over all other cleats. The sole plate is contrasting white.
