Inspired by Coutinho? Serie A Defender Cuts Extreme Holes in Nike Tiempo Legend Boots

Update: Seven months after Liverpool's Coutinho got people talking as he cut a extremely big hole in his Nike Mercurial Vapor XI soccer boots (likely because of blisters), S.P.A.L. defender Francesco Vicari was spotted with two, even bigger holes in his Nike Tiempo Legend VII soccer cleats.

Have you ever seen something similar like this? Liverpool's Coutinho stood out in today's match wearing a crazy pair of football boots featuring a hole in the heel area. Thanks to @ZekeDesign for the head up.

Philippe Coutinho's right Nike Mercurial Vapor 11 soccer cleat features a big hole in the heel area. It is not known yet why he cut the hole in the boots, even though it is most probably that he got a blister on his right heel. In fact, Coutinho trained in an old Nike Mercurial Vapor XI colorway this week. It is something we have not seen before yet.

Apart from the hole in the boot, Coutinho's Nike Mercurial Vapor 2017 soccer cleats are the same as the standard edition of the speed boots. They feature a ultra-thin synthetic upper and a partly tongue-less design for ultimate lockdown and speed.
