Looking for the new Nike T90 Laser IV football boots? Find it here: Nike T90 Laser IV

It was a hectic weekend for boot debuts and for the main part, a largely forgetful one for many of the leading ambassadors in the English Premier League.

On Sunday, following his major role in the release of the Nike Total 90 Laser III, Liverpool’s Fernando Torres wore the football boots competitively for the first time.

He was on hand to see Dirk Kuyt give Liverpool a first half lead but was then frustrated by Arsenal’s second half comeback and a distinct lack of a cutting edge by the home side as the Gunners ran out winners 2 – 1.

So it’s likely that Arsenal’s Denilson will more fondly remember the game as he wore the Laser III‘s as well.

Along side him, Theo Walcott tried out the new Superfly colourway in Yellow / Black / Gold.

Twenty four hours earlier, Wayne Rooney also gave the Total 90 Laser III as bash and, like Torres, went disappointed as his side suffered a home defeat. Rooney though did come close to salvaging a point for Manchester United, hitting the bar from close range, but it wasn’t enough to stop Aston Villa taking all three points courtesy of a 1 – 0 win, their goal coming from a Superfly clad Gabriel Agbonlahor.

And it’s unlikely that Craig Bellamy will recall Manchester City’s game with Bolton with any great delight. He wore the Yellow / Black / Gold Superfly but was controversially sent off for diving.

Also on saturday, Chelsea’s Frank Lampard wore the adiPure III in White / Gold /Black during the 3 – 3 draw with Everton at Stamford Bridge as did Karim Benzema, though he went for the Black / White / Gold versions during Real Madrid’s crucial 3 – 2 win at Valencia.

Elsewhere over the weekend (which was supposed to be the first official outing of the new Superfly, forgetting the midweek showing by Porto’s Alves and Rodriguez) Barcelona’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic got the only goal in the Yellow / Black / Gold colourway in the home win over Espanyol while over in Italy, Gabi Mudingayi gave Bologna a 1 – 0 half time lead wearing adiPure III in White / Gold / Black but couldn’t prevent Parma coming back in the second half to secure a 2 – 1 win. And there was disappoint too for AC Milan’s Pato who wore the Yellow / Black / Gold Superfly in their 2 – 0 home defeat by Palermo.

    Interestingly Gallas only wore them for the first half. He went back to the orginal superfly colourway of red and silver. Every time a new superfly colourway is released Gallas does this. He wears the new colour for a little while and then goes back to the red ones always. I have no idea why. But he DID improve in the second half…maybe that bright yellow colour was causing problems?

    I think as a defender superfly/vapour is a bad boot choice, especially for a centre-back. The high visibility makes it easy for strikers to evade your tackles and makes your rash tackles all the more glaring. Notice how many times Gallas hacked down a player and could have conceded a penalty? He should take note of his central defensive partners vermaelen (predator x) and sagna (puma…konstruckt I think) and go for some power boots. And I hope traore does the same because those black/volt superflys did him no good as well. Though since he is a full-back it is quite alright to wear them.

    Toure Yaya was wearing the T90 Laser IIIs against Espanyol. They still look like crap, and no reason to have the “sweet spot”. They ruined it.

    Benayoun didn’t exactly set the game alight with the Vapour III’s did he? While arshavin in his superflys did…..

    Defenders in the Laser III played well. Sergio Ramos especially and Maicon to some extent.

    it’s all right for full-backs to wear them…I specifically stated that. It’s centre backs who seem to play quite shoddily with mercurials and this is a fact. I suggest you read my post carefully maybe? I happen to be an attacking right back as well and I’d definitely wear the superfly in that position. For a cente-back….not so effective.

    lol, I’m just pointing out facts guys. Not speculation. Just some pure facts. Nothing wrong with shiny boots….but the statistics tell a story. Bruno Alves and Gallas are the only high profile centre backs i know who wear Mercurials. Why do you think that is?

    Take what you will from the facts I am pointing out. Ignore my speculation about the reason for the facts.
