Do you find yourself day dreaming about what Diego Maradona would have looked like in modern boots?
Well you’re not alone. One in four UK adults thinks about a classic player in modern boots at least once a day.
So settle in. This is going to be quite the ride.
A man who relied on a balance between pace and skill.
Therefore he wears the adidas Nemezis, currently being sported by Lionel Messi and Thomas Lemar, among others.
A defender who oozed class. Not a speck of dirt would be on his boots at the end of 90 minutes.
We picture him in a pair of Nike Magista Opus II, worn by the ever so classy trio of Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Joshua Kimmich.
In the 1986 World Cup Maradona reigned supreme wearing a pair of Puma King.
These days he’d be jinking around in the Puma One, as seen on the slightly less superior left foot of Antoine Griezmann.
Thuram could probably play in every position on the pitch and excel.
He would wear the Nike Tiempo Legend VII, worn by two other players- Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique- who fancy themselves as roaming defenders.
Ronaldo made the Nike Vapor famous with his signature dribbles and ruthless finishing.
As a special talent he deserves a special boot- the Nike Flyknit Ultra worn by Eden Hazard.
Grace, poise, elegance. There could only be one boot for Zizou.
He’d wear the adidas Ace Purecontrol like Paul Pogba and Dele Alli.
