An analysis by Footy-boots.com have revealed that coloured boots have topped the EPL scoring charts so far this season, no surprise there then given the outrageous colours on offer to the top brass these days.
White boot wearers like Robin Van Persie (Adidas Predators), Edin Dzeko (Adidas F50 ), Mario Balotelli (Nike CTR360 Maestri II ), Yakubu (Nike CTR360 Maestri ) and Daniel Sturridge (Adidas F50 ) have racked up 43 goals between them already this season up to today wearing white boots, however white boots haven’t helped Wayne Rooney’s scoring touch with the Manchester United striker grabbing just 1 goal before today out of his nine scored this season so far, with the other eight scored in blue (Nike T90 Laser ).
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero Puma V1.10) should go back to the original black boots having averaged two goals a game in black compared to one goal every two games in his new green boots.
QPR’s Heidar Helguson is the top scorer in black boots, scoring six times in his (Adidas blackouts).
Manchester City winger Adam Johnson (Nike Superfly) tops the scoring charts in yellow boots with 5 goals.
Bolton striker Ivan Klasnic (Adidas F50) has been scoring on and off the pitch of late is top scorer in purple boots with 6 goal’s so far this season.
Footy-boots.com’s analysis also suggest that wearing red boots could see you sent off quicker than any othe coloured boot, with Wigan’s Mohamed Diame (Adidas Adipure IV) and West Brom’s Youssouf Mulumbu (Nike T90) at risk of being dismissed in their preferred colour of red boots.
Green boots worn by Manchjester City’s Yaya Toure (Puma V1.11), Sergio Aguero and Stoke’s Matthew Etherington (Puma V1.11) are more likely to pick up a fair play award than been hauled up in front of the FA disciplinary committee. Maybe Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez should take heed!
Gold boots worn by Barcelona’s Lionel Messi (Adidas F50 Adizero), Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo (Nike Superfly II) and David Beckham (Adidas Predator) have only been worn once this season by an EPL player, that player was Henri Lansbury (Adidas Predator) who wishes he never appeared on the pitch given that it was when his Arsenal side were beaten 8-2 at Old Trafford this season and to add insult to injury the youngster was almost immediately farmed out to Championship high-flyer’s West Ham on loan.
