Sylvinho used to wear Nike, but since the beginning of this year he's wearing Mizuno.
There has been a story a month ago that Alves rejected new Nike contract which expires October this year. So, when the new campaign starts, we will see.

P.S. It will be great if Nike push Ribery towards Barcelona.

Btw, don't the players have a choice to wear the "standard" Barca-shoes? The shiny blue ones that Silvinho, Puyol and Thuram used to wear.

Anyone know what I mean?

I think they can basically wear what they want, no?

ilias said...

Of course, butr what I meant to say was that they have the option to wear the official footwear.
Although I haven't seen them come by (the blue shoes) for a long time.

I've noticed Iniesta had some nice flashy yellow shoes in the last few matches or so.
It looks like they're somewhat shaped like futsalshoes which would only be in the benefit of his technical abilities of course. :)

Marc4barca: Mizuno is Japanese sports goods company. If you remember, Rivaldo used to wear their boots. Puyol also wore their boots at the start of his career.

In fact, they can push him (Ribery) toward every club Nike endorses, but I don't think they'll push him anywhere if he doesn't express his wish.
