Nike or Adidas?

This is an endless battle between two very succesfull sport brands! We all loved the old school Nike Mercurials and Adidas Predators. I have to admit that I gave up my hope sligthly with Adidas when they announced in 2014 that they would stop making Predator and F50… 


Nike continued strongly with developing the Mercurial range and also creating two new models Magista and Hypervenom. For me the new Mercurial Superfly V, Hypervenom Phantom III & Magista Obra II are one of the best boots Nike have produced in the last years! As I have been wearing Mercurial for most time of my career, I’m happy to see that they are developing the boots all the time.


If the years 2014-2015 were a slight dissapointment from Adidas then they really pushed up things in 2016! Some great boots as the Ace16+ PureControl with laceless technology and X16+ PureAgility to battle as a speed boot against Mercurial!


So both brands are once again seriously compeating of providing players with the best boot options! This is important as competition is the only way to improve your own products.

Nike Mercurial Superfly V X “EA-Sport” Edition


Nike delivered again by releasing the limited edition Nike Mercurial Superfly V X “EA-Sport” edition. Nike is celebrating, together with EA-Sports, 22 years of best selling football game! It was in 1994 when the first FIFA game was released, and now we enjoy the fresh FIFA17 released on 27th September. Today they got over 3 billion users everyday.


The boots design reflects the developement in gaming technology. From the 16-Bit graphics of 1994 to moderna HD-definition! In my opinion perfectly designed theme.


A great addition is also the EA-Sport logo on the heel and a big thanks to Nike for individually numbering the boots! Also the Nike box is designed carefully with a shimmering tone with some 16-bit graphics as well. 

The boots are limited to 1500 pairs in the world and I were lucky enough to buy a pair numbered 733 of 1500. As always the boots sold out in minutes.

All made in Germany!

Here is all my Predators that are made in Germany! Public versions were made in Indonesia and the made in germany versions were only worn by proffesionals, so rare rare rare! 😋

         

Joey Barton Match Worn

Here I have a pair of Adidas Predator X match worn and signed by Joey Barton! I think it’s always really interesting to compare the proffesional used boots to the public released boots. You can always find differences, also usually the proffesional boots are made in Germany and been measured to fit the player.
