Manchester United celebrated an excellent week in the Premier League. After toppling fellow title contenders Chelsea 3-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday, they grinded a 1-0 win over Wigan at the same venue. Since their 2-1 loss to Arsenal on November 8th, United have gone 9 games unbeaten, and have not conceded a goal during that period. Whats even more remarkable about the run is the both defensive starters Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra have been missing for several games. But the one consistency United have had is their steady and stable Serbian defender, Nemanja Vidic. Not only has Vidic helped the team defensively, but he has also chipped in 3 goals so far this season, with a crucial 91st minute winner at home to Sunderland.
Vidic has been wearing the PUMA v-Konstrukt III Gci FG – Black/White/Team Gold this season. Made using supersoft premium full-grain kangaroo leather, these cleats opitimize the comfort and style that Puma are known for. One of the unique elements of this cleat is a ball impact guard, that creates a visual cue for striking and offers protection. It also has off center lacing to increase the strike zone. Weighing in at 11.60z, these cleats are a little more solid than others, and pretty much designed for a hard tackler who needs full power when sliding, or striking a long ball. The look of the cleat is also visually striking with the strike zone consisting of a gold pattern from toe to the top of the tongue. The Puma itself sits on the inside of the cleat and is easily seen in bright white.
