What Does Son Wear?
Son Heung-Min is a wearer of the Adidas X19+, a laceless boot with an X-layskin upper that is composed of an inner foam layer and an outer translucent material, making the upper lightweight, pliable, and barefoot-like with ball contact. The laceless system allows for a larger and cleaner striking surface, while the textured lining on the upper enhances ball grip. The Speedframe outsole features rounded studs on the heel and arrow-shaped studs on the forefoot for aggressive traction, especially during acceleration. The low-cut Claw collar provides maximum breathability as well as freedom of movement around the ankle area. The X19+ also has an iridescent external heel counter which provides additional support for stability.
Son Heung-Min Boots
Son Heung Min was born in Chuncheon, Gangwon on the 8th of July 1992. He spent the early part of his professional career in Bundesliga with Hamburger SV and Bayer Leverkusen. His €30 million transfer to Tottenham Hotspur in 2015 became the most expensive fee paid for an Asian player. He has since justified the price tag by becoming an integral part of the team that has also the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Lucas Moura. Together, they enabled Tottenham to become contenders these past few years, finishing in top 6 in the Premier League and ending as runners up to Liverpool in the 2018-2019 Champions League.
Son is following the footsteps of Park Ji-sung as one of the greatest Korean players of the Premier League of all time. Son is known for his explosive pace, extreme ball control and dribbling, making him especially deadly during a counter-attack. At present, he operates on the left-wing, but his work rate has been effective in also providing defensive cover when Tottenham is out of possession. His performances earned him a Balon d’Or nomination for 2019, deservedly placing him among the ranks of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Virgil Van Dijk.
While not qualifying for the knockout rounds, Son finished South Korea’s 2018 World Cup campaign on a high note by scoring the decisive second goal that dethroned World Cup champions Germany with a 2-0 scoreline. Son was wearing an Adidas X18+ from the Energy Mode pack at that time. Before wearing the adidas X, he wore their F50 Adizeros and has often personalized his boots with a ‘HM7’ branding partnered with a Korean flag.
