What the 25 Best Soccer Players Wear and Why

No. 4 – Robin Van Persie x adidas adiPower Predator

The most interesting boot choice on the list lies with Robin Van Persie. The prolific striker has decided to stick it out with the Adidas adiPower range instead of switching to the newer Predator LZ. The adiPower is designed with power in mind, while the Predator LZ is a hybrid-control boot. There are many theories behind his selection, but with his current form at Man Utd and the fact that the adiPower is seen as one of the best performing Predator’s to date, who would blame him.
