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! 

Nike T90 Laser II Fg “Metzelder”

New addition! 

Nike T90 Laser II Euro 2008 and they are match worn by “Christoph Metzelder” in Euro 2008 for Germany.


This Nike T90 Laser Euro 2008 edition was actually never released to public, only in the cheaper version T90 Shoot. I managed to hear from a friend of mine that there was some early releases of this boot but Nike had to recall them mainly due to the stiching material used. This stiching material started basically to rotten when the boots got wet, and this caused a bad smell that would stay on the boot regardless of what you tried to clean them with.


I’m not sure if the these boots worn by “Metzelder” had the same problem or not, but usually proffesional worn boots are made with slightly better components. And these dosen’t smell bad 😛


One thing is for sure that this Euro 2008 colourway is the best colourway by far! The dark leather with a white Nike swoosh and a bright blue soleplate is just a perfect combination.

Nike Mercurial Superfly V “1998”

Honestly this project is one of the coolest thing this year! I had planned to do this custome makeover since early 2016. But I knew I had to wait for the right Superfly V boot to be released. 


So I decided to find a pair of Superfly V that basically had the right base colour, I chose the Nike “Elite Pack”!


As so often I trusted my good friend @maalinetti to help me with the paintjob. He never dissapoints me!

So my goal was to recreate the most famous boot in Nike Mercurial history, the Mercurial 1998 R9, by using the latest technology provided by Nike! 


Always looking forward to new projects and always happy when they turn up as great as these!

I promise that there will be more in the future, thank you for reading!
