After one of the most dramatic final days of the Premier League in history, we at TRW have set about to give you one final boot spot article from the Premier League’s weekend action.
We start with the boots that earned Manchester City the title. Sergio Aguero started the season in a host of different boots before finally signing for Puma and has since worn V1.11 boots. Aguero was spotted midweek in a fancy looking unreleased pair of Puma boots so we look forward to what the German brand has in store for the upcoming season and Euro 2012.
Puma have had a strong season with the likes of Aguero added to their roster. Michael Carrick has worn Puma boots for a number of seasons. Carrick had delayed a switch into Puma’s Blue/Black/White/Orange Powercat 1.12 colourway but made the switch on the final day of the season - perhaps because they match his United away kit so well.
With Euro 2012 around the corner there is a lot of debate about which England strikers Roy Hodgson will take with him to Poland and Ukraine. Jermain Defoe is one player who has impressed despite finding opportunities for game time proving few and far between. Defoe has switched between AdiZero II and MiCoach AdiZero boots since the latter’s release.
Another player who has divided opinion is Liverpool’s Andy Carroll. Carroll has hit good form recently for Liverpool and his inclusion would be less of a surprise now than it would have been a few months ago. Umbro would love to have the striker involved as he could then wear the St George collection Speciali III boots.
One player who many feel might be worth the risk is Norwich’s Grant Holt. Holt has had a hugely impressive season for Norwich and has been instrumental in helping the Canaries stay in the Top flight this season. Holt began the season in Umbro Stealth Pro II boots but ended in Nike Tiempo Legend IV boots.
Chelsea have had a strong end to the season and with 6 place secure chose to rest some key men ahead of their Champions league Final this coming weekend and give a few younger players a chance to impress. One of them was 21 year old Sam Hutchinson who made his first season start for the Blues wearing Adidas AdiPure 11Pro boots.
The Adidas Predator LZ has dominated our boot spots recently. This week a few more players caught the eye in Adidas’ 12th Predator. Everton’s Phil Jagielka has had rough season due to injuries. Jagielka will possibly miss out on the Euros due to this but may find himself paying for Team GB in the Olympics wearing the new Predator LZ.
Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny had a slow start to his English Premier League career but since settling down has been part of the reason the Gunners had such a strong end to the season. Koscielny has worn Predator X, AdiPower Predators and now Predator LZ boots in his time at the Emirates.
Wigan escaped relegation for the 2nd season in a row thanks in part to Franco Di Santo. After failing to impress at Chelsea Di Santo moved to Wigan also wearing Predator X, AdiPower Predators and now Predator LZ boots.
Our final boot spot of the season is one of our favourites Jon Walters. Walters has featured in our articles a few times this season and once again caught our eye after wearing the new alternate Infrared/Black/White colourway.
