FC Barcelona v Real Madrid - Boot Preview

This is the expected Barcelona Boot XI for El Clásico.

Just like those on the other side, Barcelona's players will wear the new Radiant Reveal Nike boots, as well as the latest blue and white color drops for the Adidas Ace and X, respectively. All in all, Barcelona's gala eleven is split between five Adidas and six Nike players. The most outstanding boot choices are Neymar's and Luis Suarez': whereas the former is expected to wear the 'regular' Nike Hypervenom instead of his own signature design, Suarez will wear the all-new Adidas X 15+ SL.

Similar observations will be made on Madrid's side, although Adidas and Nike are evenly split here, having five players of Los Blancos under contract each. While Marcelo and Karim Benzema are set to wear the new Adidas X SL cleats for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to debut his new 'Natural Diamond' football boots. Pepe continues in the Umbro Speciali Eternal, in a bold and eye-catching orange colorway.
