Premier League Defenders Scoring Weekend Dec 6th-8th Part II

continued from part I……

Puma v-Konstrukt III

Vidic recently started wearing the New Puma v-Konstrukt III. There is much advancement in these cleats including a redesigned boot lace cover system. The system is unique as it has a type of elastic cord that keeps the tongue held down. A TPU injected external heel counter with foot embracing support create a ‘Save Cage’ against outer forces to protect and prevent injury, whilst offering support and stability. To help with touch and control, Puma have created a new front design with padding around the shooting area. This is positioned to help with control and impact when striking the ball.
The v-Konstrukt II are available in the UK right now, while release of the v-Konstrukt III will be in January. The v-Konstrukt II – New Navy/Team Gold/White is also currently available in the US.

Nike Total90 Laser II K-FG - White/Red/Metallic SilverLescott and Bernard Mendy both wear Nike Nike Total90 Laser II. Nike developed these cleats with swerve, power and precision in mind. Their focus was on developing a shooting sweet spot, and hence the front design of the cleat. Known as Shotshield technology, Nike placed rubber zonal rings on the strike zone with direct injected rubber. The circular pattern is designed to help player shape shots and control the ball. Inside the cleat there is eVent membrane, which helps keep feet dry. Wayne Rooney also wears these cleats.

Abdoulaye Faye has worn several different types of cleats this season including Adidas Predators, Nike Mercurialadidas adiPURE TRX FG - Indigo/Metallic Silver/Rave Green Vapors and most recently Adidas adiPURE TRX in master blue/white. These cleats have an upper Kangaroo leather glove like fit. They are about as pure and simple as you can get cleat wise. At 9.6 ounces they are pretty light. Designed for the no-nonsense central midfielder who is not afraid to get stuck in on a tackle.

Ledley King Scores

Ledley King scored a key goal for Spurs in his white Adidas Predator Powerswerve. Predators have been legendary since the Premier League’s creation in the 90’s. This version has two major advantages over other boots; Powerswerve impact and Powerpulse. Powerswerve allows a player to add swerve to the ball by using a rubber interface, allowing for extra control on contact with the ball. Powerpulse is the insole insert that has Tungsten powder filled elements. These shift as you swing into the ball adding extra power and increased flexibility. The newest version of the cleat comes in Dark Indigo/Metallic Silver/Pool.
