No. 5 – Xavi x Adidas Predator LZ

If you like watching soccer played at pace and with precision, Xavi is the player for you. His name is continually brought up in the conversation of best players in the world and unlike Van Persie, Xavi has decided to switch to the Predator LZ. This new version actually suits Xavi’s style better, with the emphasis of this boot placed on hybrid-control. If you get the opportunity to watch Xavi play live, don’t be surprised if you see him use all 5 lethal zones in quick succession.
