For players pre-season is all about getting fit and ready for the upcoming season. For the fans it is all about transfers, new kits and of course, new boots. We love a good boot test and this week we got a peak at the up-coming Nike T90 Laser IV thanks to Inter Milan start Wesley Sneijder.
The Dutch ace is one of the most talked about and wanted midfielders at the moment with the likes of Manchester United and City chasing his signature. We have spotted Sneijder in the new T90s before but it was against City that we got some great images of the new boots which feature a newly designed ‘Shot-Shield’ – which Nike have renamed the ‘Adaptive Shield’.
Another interesting boot spot from the Dublin Super Cup was Man City midfielder Nigel De Jong. De Jong wore adiPURE III and blacked-out adiPURE IV last season but was spotted wearing Puma King Finale boots. Puma announced the signing of Thierry Henry last week and we wonder whether he will soon be official joined by De Jong.
