Boot Watch #016 - Unreleased, Custom and Classic Boots

It seems the recent national team kits influx has caught us of guard a bit, but anyway, here we are with Boot Watch #016. We hope you enjoy it enough to look past the delay.

Guillermo Beltran - Nike Mercurial Vapor X

The Copa Libertadores was the stage for what appears to have been the world premiere of the stunning next Nike Mercurial Vapor X colorway.

Thiago Motta - Mizuno Morelia II

Someone else's boots who caught the people's attention this week where Thiago Motta's timeless Mizuno Morelia II football boots, although it wasn't exactly for the right reasons.

Victor Vazquez - Nike Tiempo Legend VI

Ever since hitting NIKEiD in December, the Nike Tiempo Legend VI has enjoyed great popularity amongst amateurs and professionals alike, the latest being Cruz Azul's Victor Vazquez, who created a stunning white-and-blue paint job for the iconic silo's latest rollout.

Yosuke Kashiwagi - Adidas Ace 15.1

Not only Nike's boots can be customized, obviously, as shown by Urawa Red Diamond's Yosuke Kashiwagi. This white, blue and red Adidas Ace 15 definitely isn't one for everyone, but maybe that's exactly the point of custom boots.

Giovanni Moreno - Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit

We've not really seen this Adidas Ace 16 paint job on the pitch yet, which is a shame.

Zheng Zheng - Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII

With the launch of the next-gen Nike Mercurial Vapor XI football boots around the corner, Zheng Zheng of Shandong Luneng decided to give the iconic, color-blocking Euro 2012 Nike Mercurial Vapor VII cleats a runout this week.

Almog Cohen - Adidas X 15.1

Ingolstadt's Almog Cohen was spotted wearing a pair of completely blacked-out Adidas X 15.1 football boots. It's not known whether the Israelian is on the hunt for a new contract or just enjoys a pair of classic cleats, although the latter options seems more likely considering he has been wearing the blackouts for a long time.

Hugo Almeida - Adidas Predator Instinct

Renowed for his powerful strike, Hannover 96 striker Hugo Almeida laced up in a pair of Adidas Predator Instinct soccer boots this weekend. This particular colorway, one of the last Predator launches ever, was released in January 2015.

Christopher Schorch - Nike Magista Obra

Energie Cottbus (German third division) defender Christopher Schorch this weekend wore what looks like the Academy Pack edition of the Nike Magista Obra boots, but are more likely just NIKEiD customs.
