French giants PSG posted an interesting image of the locker room ahead of the Champions League match against Istanbul BB that shows off which cleats their players took with them, including Mbappe, Neymar and Marquinhos.

Paris Saint-Germain Players & Their Boots They Took To Istanbul BB Champions League Match

Logically, Paris Saint-Germain's players did not only take one pair with them to but a few different with different stud configurations. All players had at least three different pairs to choose from for the match.

The reasons why player got more than one pair are simple and logical. First, they can choose the boots depending on weather and pitch conditions. Second, they can replace the boots if one gets broken. Third, it is always better to have some options in reserve.

In example, Neymar had three different cleats with him - two Puma King Platinum signature boots as well as a blackout next-gen Puma Future Z.


Marquinhos had three pairs of the Nike Phantom GT with him, with at least one featuring a SG configuration (on the right - seems to be the most used one).
