Schmelzer, who regularly wears Nike Mercurial Superfly boots, laced up in a blacked-out pair of Puma evoPOWER Vigor boots, the next generation of the Puma cleat that is set for a launch early next year.

Although Schmelzer was back in his regular Mercurials for the game against Leipzig on Saturday, it seems highly likely that the Germany international's switch to Puma is all but done. Stay tuned for more updates as the story evolves.
