Adidas GLITCH

The all new style of football boots released by Adidas in late 2016, the Adidas Glitch. So we seen the laceless technology in the Adidas Ace16+ PureControls, but now we got something on a whole new level. The boots are built with an inner shoe and an outer skin. So the player can actually choose different colours for both inner shoe and outer skins, also you can choose between FG-plate or SG-plate. 




So basically we all connect these boots with the old Adidas F50 Tunit, which haf some similiar features. 

The interesting part about this boot is the way Adidas launched it. It started with a group of young footballers from London was selected by Adidas to unveil the new GLITCH. Soon after the boot was tested and revealed to the world Adidas decided to make things still a bit more interesting, by announching the Adidas GLITCH App. This ment that in order to purchase a pair you had to:

  1. Be based in the United Kingdom
  2. And recieved a secret purchase code from an early tester
  3. Then you are able to buy the boots.


Once the App was announced, Adidas brought more information about the boots:

  • Purchasing the starter kit (meaning: inner shoe and two outer skins) will unlock new codes
  • Buyers will have a two week test period, if they don’t like them they can be returned
  • Same day delivery in London

Adidas Predator Accelerator Sg “Made in Germany”!

My newest addition to the collection. Definitely one of the rarest Adidas Predator boots ever made, measured to meet the players foot size with high quality leather. The boots are made in Germany, public ones are made in Indonesia. 


Compared to the public releases these boots got a softer and thinner leather with more stiching, making them slightly lighter and stronger. Adidas also added a rubber strap to keep the tongue on place. Also the tongue is longer than normally and can be folded lower.


Most special thing about these are ofcourse the soleplate with 8 screw in studs, providing a better grip. 

Such a beautiful boot and really thankful for owning this pair in excellent condition!

Nike Mercurial Superfly

One of Nike’s most succesfull boot range, the Mercurial Superfly! The first ever Superfly was introduced to the world in 2009, but we had a boot before that which had a carbon soleplate. In 2008 Nike released an elite level boot of the normal Nike Mercurial Vapor IV, the Nike Mercurial Vapor IV SL. SL stand for “Super Light”. In the first actual Superfly Nike used a carbon fiber soleplate and a new technology called flywire in the upper. 


The following two Superfly models were quite similiar to the Superfly I, but many did prefer the Superfly I over the new models. In the years 2012-2013 Nike did not manufacture any Superflys. Then in 2014 we got to see Nike’s first knitted boot with a carbon soleplate, the Nike Mercurial Superfly IV.


The latest boot in the Superfly range was the Superfly V in late 2016! 

Adidas Adizero 5-Star 6.0 Uncaged

Few weeks ago I was scrolling on the internet and I suddenly found these on adidas.com. What can I say, I fell in love with the animalistic design! 


The boots are called: Adidas Adizero 5-Star 6.0 Uncaged. And there was 6 different animals printed on the boots, I chose the shark theme. So the boots are actually American football cleats, but the design and feel is pretty close to the Adizero we are used to know. These boots have some extra padding in the heel area and slightly different stud-pattern.


Only issue was that they were only available for people in US, but I was lucky enough to have a friend in the US who actually orderd them for me. 

A nice addition to the other animalistic boots in my collection as the Adidas Tunit Y3 collections!

Retail vs. Sample

I got something interesting to show you, here I got two pairs of Nike Mercurial Vapor IX. Despite that they are different colourway, there is something else.


The green coloured boot on the left is a retail version that was sold for the the piblic in 2013. On the right side we got a bit more interesting pair of boots, they are called “Sample” or “Salesman Sample”. They were usually a tryout boot, property of Nike, or then just given to shops for exhibition purposes and were not ment to be sold. But as we know some pairs got away to the public 😉


The difference on my pair of “Sample’s” is the fact that they got a carbon-fiber Sg-Pro soleplate. The ones that were made for public releases had a fiberglass soleplate. Perform wise there is not a big different, but carbon-fiber is slightly stronger than fiberglass. And ofcourse the carbon fiber looks better.

Nike Mercurial Superfly V Collection

Took some time for myself to take pictures of my Nike Mercurial Superfly V collection. These are the Superfly V’s I currently own. 



They are all pretty rare except for the CR7 “Discovery” yellow/dark grey ones, as they are not a limited edition but instead a nice looking boot from CR7 Chapter-3!


These are probably the most unique of them all as they are custome painted to represent the original Mercurial 1.0 from 1998 World Cup! 


Then next, boot above, you all recognize! One of my big favourites Nike Mercurial Superfly V “EA-Sport”, limited edition and mine is numbere 733 out of 1500. Representing the video gaming from late 90′ with 16-bit all the way to present time with high resolution!


Last one is probably the rarest of these four boots, the Nike Mercurial Suoerfly V CR SE “Vitórias”. Limited edition (230 of 777) celebrating Cristiano Ronaldo winning his fourth FIFA Player of the Year trophy aka Ballon d’Or!


Hope to see many more Superfly V in the future!

Nike Mercurial CR7 “Ballon d’Or” Collection!

Four “Ballon d’Or” tropihes and four boots made to celebrate each of the great year Cristiano Ronaldo have had! 

The first pair, Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR SE Fg 100, was actually released in 2013 and not for Cristiano winning the Ballon d’Dor but for his record breaking year at Real Madrid!


The numbers on the heel represents different records or achievements he had that season:

  • 1 first Spanish championship
  • 9 goals for Portugal
  • 14 games played for the national team
  • 19 the first player to score against all 19 La-Liga teams
  • 27 years old in 2012
  • 55 games played in all tournaments for his club
  • 60 goals scored in all tournaments for his club

There was only 100 pairs released of this boot!

Next boot is the Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR SE Sg-Pro 100. This boot was revealed soon after Cristiano Ronaldo was named FIFA Player Of The Year in 2014! This pair was also produced just 100 pairs globally and is one of the most sought boots on the market. This time Nike kept the design simple but still classy. Together with the white and black coloured upper Nike added a beautiful gold soleplate. Everything about this boot is spot on!

Cristiano Ronaldo won the 3rd Ballon d’Or for the season 2014 and again Nike didn’t let us down by releasing the next boot – Nike Mercurial Superfly IV CR SE Sg-Pro “Rare Gold”.

Again there was made only 333 pairs in the world and lucky enough I got the pair mine numbered 333 of 333. I actually tried to buy these when they were released exclusively via Nike Football App in march 2015, but they sold out in seconds… They were retailed at 300£ GBP! As so often I had to wait few months before I found a pair on eBay, got them for a cheeky 250£ 😛


So we seen what Nike have delivered in the past few years, now we could expect something special for Cristiano Ronaldo winning his 4th Ballon d’Or for the season 2016. And we did! The new boot is called Nike Mercurial Superfly V CR SE Fg “Vitórias”! The is craeted to embody C.Ronaldo’s iconic personality as one of the most decorated player in the world. 


What an increadible year he had. He won the Champions League with Real Madrid and even a bigger achievement was leading his nation to glory for the first time in their history. Again the design is pretty simple but still stunning as the earlier models.


This boot is also a limited edition with only 777 pairs made in the world, I got the pair numbered 230 out of 777. A big bonus is that the boots are all individually numbered!
