David Luiz Wears Nike Premier Football Boot in 2018-2019 Season

David Luiz was spotted with the Nike Premier football boot in the first pre-season training session and has not worn any other boots in this season so far.

The Nike Premier II soccer shoe is Nike's modern heritage boot. Usually not worn by any high-profile players, the Nike Premier II boot features a Kangaroo leather upper, a classic fold-over tongue and a full-length TPU plate. It is Nike's competitor of the Nike Premier II.

Most other players who wore the Nike Magista switched to the Nike Phantom VSN. However, there are a few players who are still sporting the Nike Magista (e.g. Iniesta), while Sergio Busquets received a custom low-cut Nike Phantom Vision soccer cleat.
