What Boots Does Mohammed Salah Wear?
Similar to Lionel Messi, Mo Salah is a key adidas sponsored athlete but opts not to wear the elite level laceless boots, but the laced .1 version of his respective silos, the X range. He presently wears the X 19.1, the X19 provides a soft and more pliable upper with its trademark X-layskin construction. Aside from providing stretch to get a tight fit, the X-layskin is also line-textured to provide more grip on the ball. The winger’s pace is supported by the configuration of rounded and arrow-shaped studs on the silo’s Speedframe outsole. The low-cut Clawcollar provides the winger with a balance of support and breathability around the ankle area.
Mo Salah Boots
Salah is one of many players who have worn boots from both Nike and adidas in their career, his Nike history includes the Mercurial Vapors VI and VII plus Vapor Superfly III. By 2012 he made the switch to adidas, starting with the F50 Adizero Micoach, the II-IV F50 Adizeros, the 2015 F50 Adizero, and then settling with the adidas X in late 2015 after it succeeded the F50 range.
A prolific winger on the right side of Liverpool’s front three, Salah dynamically cuts into the centre onto his stronger left foot. He possesses both physical attributes and technical skills needed to be a fantastic dribbler, provider, and scorer, and has been dubbed the ‘Egyptian Messi’ as both produce quality football performance from their small frame.
Recently Salah has generally preferred laced boots, but for a time was the main face of the X laceless options, still featuring heavily in the marketing even though he has since reverted to the laced 1 variant.
Mohamed Salah hails from Nagrig, Basyoun, Egypt and started his senior professional career with El Mokawloon of the Egyptian Premier League in 2010. The Port Said stadium riot in February 2012 prompted the Egyptian Football Association to cancel the remainder of the season, providing an opportunity for Swiss club Basel to sign him up after he impressed in a friendly between the club and Egypt’s U23. He would win the Swiss Super League in his first season and at least contribute to Basel’s subsequent successful title defence as he moved midseason to the Premier League for the first time in 2014 courtesy of Chelsea, the side he scored on in both home and away legs of their 2013 UCL group stage encounters. After his successful loan and permanent stints with Serie A sides Fiorentina and Roma, Liverpool snapped him up in 2017. The rest is history then and continues to grow as he would set a record of 32 goals in the 2017-18 Premier League which is the most in a 38 game season. He would help Liverpool clinch the UCL and the FIFA Club World Cup in 2019. Together with co-adidas players Firmino, Wijnaldum, and Fabinho, Salah guided Liverpool in their quest for a first Premier League title in 30 years.
