Three unique pairs of boots were on display at Anfield including for Mo Salah, Darwin Nunez and Trent Alexander-Arnold, along with new releases for the new season from Nike and adidas.
Darwin’s Hidden Black-Out Design
Darwin Nunez has been known to wear some interesting boots, with painted designs including the Uruguayan flag appearing on some of his pairs, but this weekend, he opted for a completely black pair of boots, does he have a boot deal, if so is it at risk of changing if he is disguising his Nike boots?
Trent Alexander-Arnold, went off with an injury that will keep him out of international duty, but before then he proudly showcased the fifth boot of his Under Armour Clone Magnetico Pro 2 ’66th’ collection, that has be revealed from February 2023 until August with different colour fades across the boots, this pair should complete the collection and he will be expected in a new Clone 3 perhaps next time he is available on pitch.
Salah’s Egyptian Nights
Mohamed Salah looked unbothered by transfer rumours as he pounced for the final goal of the match. For the West Ham game, Salah was wearing his new signature X Crazyfast Egyptian Nights boots for the first time. The adidas speed boot has bold aesthetics, comprised of predominantly purplish and bluish hues, a tonal, with an all-over Egyptian floral pattern and a striking orange adidas forefoot stripes. The chrome finish on the outsole further had a blue-to-gold transition that was perfect for the Egyptian football royalty.
As for the rest of the team, adidas boots were popular with centre back partnership Joel Matip and Joe Gomez, both wearing the Copa Pure.1 on their feet, joined by World Cup winning midfielder Alexis Mac Allister. Curtis Jones intertwined well with Luis Diaz, and both wore the white with green detailing X Crazyfast.1 with laces from the Crazyrush collection.
Left back Andy Robertson was one of the Nike wearers in the Phantom GX, with early goalscorer Dominik Szoboszlai in Nike’s 23/24 Ready Pack‘s Vapors, in a predominantly white colourway with red quarter and cutout AIR branding.
