George Weah did not use a modern football boot for his one-off comeback but an old Adidas F50 Tunit soccer boot. We think that he wore the Adidas F50.8 Tunit football boot, released in 2008 (If we are wrong, let us know which boots he exactly was wearing in the comment below).

The Adidas F50.8 Tunit soccer boot was released in late 2008. It was the 3rd generation of F50 that allowed players to customize their shoes by changing the insoles and stud configuration to any type of playing surface.

During his professional career, George Weah laced up in Mizuno and Adidas Predator football boots, amongst others. He wore Adidas Copa Mundial football boots after his career.
