    and rio:

    “have they got glitter on them as well”


    Nice video.

  2. firestarter says:

    Bendtner seems the apt choice.

  3. RedDevil says:

    Im never gonna wear that one! Its kinds wierd. First time Ive seen a pink boot… I dont reccomend them making another! :lol:

  4. RedDevil says:

    If Ronaldo wears those shoes, then the “gay” mark is gonna be stronger than ever.

  5. firestarter says:

    He hates pink.

    Read in some interview.

    I just hope Nani does not wear them

  6. Mic says:

    You’ll be a brave man to wear them…think I might get them if they do them in astros

    …or not.

  7. Adam says:

    “It’s PIMPIN’ PIMPIN’!”

  8. ara says:

  9. PossePossebon says:

    OMG I actually think it’s great. But I’m female. Lol. Can’t see Rio or Ronny wearing it though.

  10. Red-Manc says:

    Shocking there ridiculous! i could never take anyone serious if they were them, maybe they were just designed for women that play football? you know how women like their bloody shoes.

    I can see these new pink boots being on john terry’s xmas list.

  11. smith says:

    ronaldo wearing it will be interesting. people will be laughing at him. Marco Materazzi ?omg , doesn’t fit him. he’s too man.

  12. SteRDLK says:

    Further proof that football is becoming a game for fairies. Football shoes should be manly. If any United player wears these they should get abused.

  13. King Eric says:

    Fucking joke, gloves, socks past knees, tight tops under shirts, neck warmers now pink boots!

  14. TonyBee says:

    Send them down to the gayboys at the Emirates

  15. OTRed says:

    I’d like to see it on Drogba or Terry…the “big men”.

  16. OTRed says:

    Lol, yeah O’Neils expression and Rio’s comments were the best

  17. BristolRed says:

    I love the boots! Pink is one of my favourite colours! defo going to by a pair hehe x

  18. Failsworth Devil says:
