Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale will wear this week what has been hailed as the world’s lightest-ever commercial football boot.

The Welsh superstar will be seen sporting the new Adidas adiZero F50 Crazy Light boots in the Champions League clash with Schalke on Tuesday.

The boot weighs just 135g thanks to a lightweight skin.

Bale said in an Adidas media release:

I've tried them out already in training and they feel great. I can’t wait to wear them on field. Lightweight boots definitely give me an advantage over the competition and I feel faster and more agile the lighter the boots become. Hopefully I can score a few goals in them over the next few weeks.

There is not too much pressure on the former Tottenham man this week, as Real lead 6-1 from the first leg.
