As Real Madrid reigned supreme in Wales we take a look back at the week in boots. Nike's 'Time to Shine' pack took on adidas' 'Dust Storm' collection as the two big brands clashed in a Cardiff debut, while we also pick out the best of the rest from across the planet.
Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) adidas X 17.1
Karim Benzema led the Real Madrid front line in Cardiff as Los Blancos beat Juventus 4-1 to retain the Champions League. The Frenchman switched into the laced next-generation adidas X 17.1 boot in the new 'Dust Storm' colourway. Benzema was amongst a number of players from both sides wearing the X edition, however there was no on-pitch appearance for the new Nemeziz in Cardiff.
Mario Mandzukic (Juventus) Nike Hypervenom 3
Scorer of one of the greatest goals Champions League Final history. Mario Mandzukic produced a moment of pure brilliance wearing the Nike 'Time to Shine' Hypervenom 3 on Saturday night as his acrobatic finish temporarily pulled Juventus level at the Principality Stadium. Juve might have lost on the night but there's no taking that moment away from Mandzukic.
Paulo Dybala (Juventus) Nike Mercurial Superfly V
Paulo Dybala remained in his total blackout Nike Mercurial Superfly V boot for the Champions League Final. The Argentine has been wearing the 'unbranded' boot with his own logo for the last few months since his contract with Nike ended and is likely to sign a new deal with a brand in the summer after failing to agree a contract ahead of the showdown in Cardiff. Still, the appearance in the final has ensured he's the most eligible boot bachelor around.
Toni Kroos (Real Madrid) adidas 11Pro
Toni Kroos is also playing by his own rules when it comes to boot choice. Kroos is contracted to adidas but stopped wearing their new releases in January 2014 when he stumbled across the adidas 11Pro and decided he rather liked it. The German midfielder has been pulling the strings ever since in his traditional leather boots, and on a night where all brands want to showcase their latest products Kroos remained in his 11Pro's to win the Champions League, again.
Joao Moutinho (Portugal) adidas ACE 17.1
With their captain otherwise occupied elsewhere, Portugal took on Cyprus at the weekend as they warmed up for their next World Cup Qualifiers. Joao Moutinho used the friendly to switch into the latest 'Dust Storm' colourway of the adidas ACE 17.1 boots. Rather than taking the plunge on the laceless 17+ Purecontrol, Moutinho opted for the lo-cut leather edition.
Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus) Nike Magista Obra II
There were new boots all over the pitch on Saturday night in Cardiff. Nike supplied all their Juventus and Real Madrid players with the 'Time to Shine' pack for a dominant on-pitch display in the Welsh capital, and that included Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci switching into the new Magista Obra II colourway for the first time.
Juan Iturbe (Paraguay) adidas Nemeziz 17+ 360 Agility
With no Nemeziz players making it on to the pitch in Cardiff it was left to the international scene to provide a platform to perform this weekend. Paraguay's Juan Iturbe slipped into the laceless Nemeziz 17+ 360 Agility as the new silhouette demonstrated its bold presence on pitch. As strong as it gets, that look.
Paul Pogba (France) adidas ACE 17+ Purecontrol
Paul Pogba made a subtle adjustment to his adidas 'Dust Storm' ACE 17+ Purecontrol boots as France beat Paraguay 5-0. The Manchester United midfielder coloured in the bright yellow three stripes on the side of the boot to create a black and white design to wear in the friendly against the South Americans.
Hulk (Shanghai SIPG) Mizuno Morelia Neo II
Having fallen into football's bottomless money blackhole of the Chinese Super League, Hulk is still knocking around scoring goals and looking massive. The Shanghai striker was wearing the latest "Blue Print/White/Safety Yellow" Mizuno Morelia Neo II colourway as his side took on fellow Brazilians Alex Teixeira and Ramires at Jiangsu Suning.
Rasiron Compaore (Burkina Faso) Nike Hypervenom
Burkina Faso's Rasiron Compaore went first-gen this week by sporting a pair of the original Nike Hypervenom boots in the launch colourway of orange and black. Wearing a takedown Phelon edition of the boot released in May 2013, Compaore is one of just a handful of players still wearing the model which is now in its third generation.
