No. 8 – RVP F50 adiZero
Released: August 2013
Availability: Not available for sale.
It was a bold statement by Robin van Persie to choose the adiPower Predator over the Predator LZ last season, but that is exactly what he did when the Lethal Zones hit the market. We don’t see players sticking to an older model for much longer than a few weeks but RVP had a solid attachment with the adiPower. That probably had a lot to do with the boots transition from a Power boot to a Hybrid Control. This season, RVP finally made the change to a new boot, choosing the Adidas F50 adiZero. Scrap that, he changed to a modified version of the adiZero, with everything about the boot custom designed to his specifications. This includes a bladed soleplate and unique stitching across the front and side of the boot. Unlike other boots on this list, this boot was exclusive to RVP’s feet and no one else.
