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.

Nice post. I think RVP's boots are the best because they are unique to him only and you can't even find that anywhere. It is not like they were made for a special occasion, he wears them all the time.
By the way, have anyone noticed Brandon Marshal from the Chicago bears wearing hyper venom during the Thursday night game? Maybe you guys can write a post about NFL players wearing soccer shoes. I know mostly will be kickers and punters but it might nice to know who wears soccer cleats.
I agree, I have seen more Nike id and great colorways on display from NFL kickers and punters, than I have seen all year from professional soccer.
