For those who overdosed on football at this Summer’s World Cup, and have since lapsed from the beautiful game – it’s time to wake up and smell the pre-season!

Firstly, we love the Pre-season here at – there’s a huge array of weird and wonderful match-ups across the world, such as Toronto FC taking Bolton Wanderers to Penalties, Swedish outfit Hamstad frustrating Fulham in a 2-2 draw and Everton scraping past Sydney FC 1-0 down under.

But the one to keep an eye on this year has to be Manchester United going head-to-head with the MLS All-Star team in the headline event of their Pre-Season tour of the US.

The All-Star team is chosen from the top performers of the MLS by Bruce Arena, and historically will take on a top team from Europe (last season it was Everton) as a show-piece for the best of the best in the MLS.

As adidas have a heavy hand in the MLS, and use this event to showcase the latest team-wear templates and, of course, the Jabulani ball for the coming season.

But this year, they’re also giving some of their key players the chance to showcase some eye-catching custom football boots in the match-up, and have been kind enough to send their designs over to us for a sneak peek!

    awesome. I’m surprised more professionals don’t do this. It’s quite eye catching and nice. I have a pair of rasta-flavour ctr’s and adipures on the way.

    It’s also quite affordable when you consider vanilla elites relieve you of just under half a thousand dollars…..while a more pleasing and custom colour from miadidas comes in at about $200.

    Anyway: “and X-TRAXION™ clip-in system for adaptable grip on soft terrain”

    Does this mean that the Adipures showed here have interchangeable studs? So these yellow studs are for FG but can be replaced by Adidas X-TRAXION aluminium studs for SG?

    Is it just me, or do the MLS All-Star team’s home shirt looks exactly like Chelsea’s 2009/2010 home shirt, except the darker blue in the middle?

    @kuuku: I think big brands like to get their players wearing boots that are part of an “official” colourway (particularly the new releases) as part of their marketing strategy. i.e. people see a whole host of their stars wearing certain coloured boots and then wish to buy these coloured boots as well.

    That being said, I’d much rather fork out the extra money for some custom-coloured boots than an “Elite” version 🙂
