When the new-look England head out onto the hallowed Wembley turf on Friday, we know that they’ll be wearing the new England Kit – but we’re going to take a look at what the squad has on their feet ahead of the clash with Bulgaria!
Rooney’s going to have a point to prove in front of the home crowd on Friday, and is choosing to do so in K-Leather Nike T90 Laser III‘s.
This is an unusual choice for Wayne as he’s stuck with the synthetic models throughout the Laser III’s life-cycle, most recently the Challenge Red Lasers, so we can only guess that the Manchester United man was keen to match the White/Photo Blue version to the new England Kit!
Attacking full-back Glen Johnson is still sticking with the Lotto Zhero Leggenda Tre! Despite the FuerzaPura KL100 winning many fans in mainland Europe, Johnson is staying true to his boot of choice.
It seems that the Sunderland striker is still sticking with the traditional football boots, and we’re guessing that he won’t be cajoled by Umbro back into the lightweight GT Pro.
After missing out on the World Cup squad via injury, the versatile defender is sure to be thrilled to be stepping out for the Three Lions once again.
But when he does step on Friday, will he be doing so in these classic Laser T90 Laser II‘s? These White/Gold/Red versions were the last K-Leather version of these awesome football boots to be released, and easily one of the best!
Easily the most surprising spot of the England Line-up, Carrick is wearing a pair of Puma PowerCat 1.10‘s unlike anything we’ve seen before!
To the untrained eye, the Manchester United man is wearing his customary Red/Black/Silver PowerCat’s, but a look underneath shows that he’s had a Puma King XL’s sole attached to them!
We’re guessing this is for training at London Colney only, as the Wembley pitch forces most players into wearing SG football boots
Jermaine Defoe & Shaun Wright-Philips
Two of England’s paciest players have opted for the same pair of boots, in the same colourway!
Defoe & SWP have both been spotted in the Messi Chameleon version of the adidas F50 adiZero, with a leather upper – a choice that’s been hugely popular around the world since it stopped being inclusive to Lionel Messi.
Back in the squad and in blistering form at the start of the 2010-2011 season, Walcott will be looking to impress on Friday.
And if there’s a colourway to stand out in, it’s the new Cactus Superfly II!
Michael Dawson & Gary Cahill
Interestingly, if Phil Jagielka were fit to train, the Stealth Pro would tie with the Nike Superfly II and the Nike CTR360 Maestri as joint ‘Most Popular Football Boots‘ in the England Camp – impressive!
England Fitness Coach
We’re not sure who he is, but we love his classic Mizuno Morelia‘s – now there’s a man with taste!
