Walker joined boyhood club Sheffield United at the age of seven and progressed through the ranks to become a regular fixture in the reserves by 2008. Walker made his full debut for Sheffield United on 13 January 2009, starting in a third round FA Cup tie against Leyton Orient. On 22 July 2009, Walker left Sheffield United to join Tottenham Hotspur along with fellow defender Kyle Naughton for a combined fee of £9 million, but was loaned back to United for the duration of the 2009–10 season as part of the deal. On 14 July 2017, Walker signed a five-year contract with Tottenham's Premier League rivals Manchester City, in a transfer reported to be worth an initial £45 million fee, rising to £50 million with add-ons, making it one of the most expensive football transfers. He made his competitive debut for City against Brighton on 12 August 2017. Walker has since won the Premier League , EFL Cup and Community Shield twice, whilst winning the FA Cup in the 2018-19 season also.
This pair of Nike Superfly V’s were match worn by Kyle Walker for Manchester City during their title winning 2017-18 campaign. Heavily worn in multiple matches at some of the biggest stadiums in the country, and in training sessions. Bespoke made for Kyle by Nike in their Athlete Services factory in Montebelluna Italy.
This pair have been made wider to fit Walker's specifications, in comparison to retail models. The toe box area is also noticeably smaller/lower.
Each instep has an extra patch of stitching as there's additional thick padding inside that area of the boot. The inner heel lining is also much thicker and softer in comparison to retail versions.
Kyle's Montebelluna ID number can be seen written inside the boots, along with the inner padding in the below picture.
The red insoles with "Made in Italy" on the right, and the Nike Montebelluna logo on the left.
Walker opted to use the more aggressive, longer 13mm/15mm stud set up instead of the normal 11mm/13mm.
Nike have personalised this pair with Kyle Walker's children's names and DOB's, along with "Walker" with the England flag.
