Dida, Gilberto, Ljungberg, Lehmann and Co Show Off Unique Black Boots in Arsenal Legends vs Milan Glorie Match

Do you also prefer to wear black boots? Whereas on today's pitches garish cleats dominate the scene, black and white boots were the most used colors both by professionals and amateurs just a few years ago. So it was no surprise that legendary players such Freddie Ljungberg, Jens Lehmann and Dida would ignore the latest garish pair jobs but opt for different kind of black boots - ranging from a very classical pair of Puma Kings to the brand-new but nevertheless classy Nike Tiempo Legend 6 boot from the Pitch Dark collection.

Jens Lehmann - Nike Tiempo Legend VI Pitch Dark Pack

Former German goalkeeper Jens Lehmann, who famously pushed out legendary goalkeeper Oliver Kahn of Germany's first squad ahead of the 2006 World Cup, laced up in the brand-new Black and Hyper Turquoise Nike Tiempo Legend VI cleat from the 2016-2017 Nike Pitch Dark Pack.

Freddie Ljungberg - Puma evoSPEED SL Leather

Freddie Ljungberg opted for the blackout Puma evoSPEED SL Leather cleats in yesterday's match. Weighing in at just 145 gram, the Puma evoSPEED SL Leather edition is the lightest leather football boot released so far.

Stefano Eranio - ???

Stefano Eranio opted for a quite mysterious pair of football boots. Featuring a black and white design with an interesting heel counter tongue, we do not know what exactly the former Genoa, Milan and Derby striker was wearing exactly.

Nigel Winterburn - Puma King

Nigel Winterburn laced up in Puma's most iconic boot - the Puma King.

Marc Overmars - Adidas X 16.1 Blackout

Marc Overmars, who is Ajax's technical director, received a completely blackout pair of the Adidas X from the Three Stripes.

Luis Boa Morte - Adidas AdiPure III

Similar to Real Madrid's Toni Kroos, who famously still laces up in the Adidas AdiPure IV cleats, Luis Boa Morte opted for Adidas' modern Kangaroo leather boot. However, whereas Toni Kroos wears the fourth generation of the cleat, Luis Boa Morte showed off a completely blackout version of the third generation of the silo.

Gilberto and Paolo di Canio - Adidas Copa Mundial

Gilberto and Milan's Paolo di Canio kept it very traditional and laced up in Adidas' most successful boot ever - the still-produced Adidas Copa Mundial.

Dida opted for the classic Mizuno Morelia boot that was already released various years ago.
