Chelsea striker Diego Costa has caught our attention as he laced up in the Adidas X 15 SL boot instead of the second-gen Adidas X 16 cleat in all matches of the past few weeks.

Even though Diego Costa is one of the faces of the Adidas X 16 boots, the Chelsea striker seems not to like Adidas' second-gen X 16 boot. Even more interesting are the facts that Diego Costa previously already received completely custom boots from the Three Stripes, that he laces up in the one-off released Adidas X 15 SL boots, which additionally also seem to feature a special leather upper for the Spaniard and that he was actually never spotted with Adidas' X 16 boot yet.

Do you think that Adidas should create a new custom boot for the Spaniard to make him switch to the X 16? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
