1) Nike Mercurials
Nike Mercurials quickly became a favorite of mine, when I first started buying higher-end football boots in my teenage years.
This is due to how responsive they felt on my feet and how comfortable and light they would feel in-game.
The boots are built for speed and when you put these on, you really do feel the effect of them.
An aerotrak soleplate propels you forward, while a chevron stud configuration supports you as you move in different directions.
So ultimately what you have is a pair of football boots that can adapt, and do exactly what you want. No matter what surface you are on, these do the job.
Now the great thing about the Mercurials is Nike, has continued to further improve them with every generation they’ve brought out. Its the reason, why I always make sure to pick up at least one pair from a release each year.
If you’re looking for a pair of speedy football boots, that feels nice, then these are worth a shot.
2) Puma Future
No matter what game you’re involved in you always have your skills, who fancy themselves as a Neymar or Ronaldo.
If you are that player, who likes to bust out a skill or loves to take on an opponent, then your perfect match could be the Puma Future.
That is because these boots are catered towards dribbling and moving with the ball at speed.
A fuzionfit compression band around the midfoot gives you a tight and secure fit, that feels nice.
As a result of this being put into the boots, you, therefore, get an enhancing connection between ball and foot, with them being close to each other.
Boots that have been inspiring around Neymar Jr a player who likes to twist and turn to leave opponents flat-footed, these, therefore, support your every movement.
A dynamic motion outsole gives you the freedom to control your movements and speed away from players.
Having worn the Puma Futures, which were hard to get hold of, due to the demand and hype, they are a class pair of boots that feel a little similar to the Nike Mercurials.
They give you everything you need to play your best game on the pitch, from comfort to responsiveness.
3) Nike Phantoms GT
Nike Phantoms weren’t on the market back when I was a teenager, in fact, they are Nike’s newest football boot only being out for a few years.
However don’t let that deter you, as these have already become a favorite among footballers, with even the likes of Kevin De-Bruyne taking to the field in them.
Now, these are a great fit for any teenager, as they are an all-around football boot.
If you are looking for a pair that helps with control of the ball, then these are it, with a generative texture on the top of the boot that helps you do this.
This GT texture has been designed to give footballers a greater grip of the ball, and give footballers that close to body control.
If you are looking for a pair of boots, that will help you move around, then these are also well accommodated in that department.
A combination of a hyperquick system soleplate and stud configuration will offer more stability.
While a ‘ACC’ which stands for All Conditions Controlled will offer an equal footballing experience no matter the conditions you play in.
4) Adidas X Speedflow
Next up we have The Adidas Speedflow .1 which when it comes to Adidas is arguably one of the best boots they have made over the years.
The boots which also have a laceless version, have a number of qualities that make them excel.
With a soft and pliable upper, which is Primeknit, cushion your feet, giving you a comfortable experience as you play.
This works hand in hand with an agilitycage, which supports movements in all directions, allowing you to maintain a high tempo on the pitch.
The tough decision isn’t in whether to buy them, as they pretty much sell themself, but more in the version that chooses.
A laceless version that you could say is more fun to play in, comes in at a steeper price point.
However, the Adidas Speedflow that comes with the laces, not only gives you everything the laceless version offer but at a cheaper price.
So at the end of the day, it all comes down to what you prefer.
5) Adidas Predator
Next on the list of best football boots for teenagers we have the Adidas Predator are up next, which if you like different, then this is it.
These aren’t like other boots out there, of which you can probably gather from the design. However, despite how ‘freak’ looking it is, there is a lot more to these than meets the eye.
For one these are a comfortable pair of boots which with the two-piece collar, which is an update from the previous generation gives you a snug and lockdown fit.
While the little spikes you can see on the top of the boots, look like its there for the visuals, these have a handy use too.
As a lot like the phantom, these spikes offer grip to the ball and give you more of a close-knit dribble feel.
So while the design and colour may not be for everyone, I am actually all for these and with them offering something different in look while being nice to play in, they are worth looking into more.
6) Mizuno Rebula Cup
While I have put this one last, its by no means the worst one, in fact, if it was cheaper I would put it higher.
But due to the Mizuno Rebula Cup football boots being one of the most expensive football boots out there, it may be hard for you as a teenager to rack up the funds or even justify buying it.
Nonetheless, it makes this list, due to the fact it offers supreme quality and is made out of luxurious materials, that it does for me anyway make them worth it.
The boots that are made in Japan, are made with some of the finest but also softest kangaroo leather out there.
They also feature ribbed pods on both the mid and forefoot to help you trap the ball down, while a hybrid stud pattern, helps you sprint in any direction.
If you have just under £300 and want to invest in a top-of-the-range pair of football boots, you are looking directly at them with the Mizuno Rebula Cup.
So there you have it, those are the 6 best football boots for teenagers that you can buy and of which I have tested personally myself.
While the best possible versions of the boots listed are quite pricey you are able to buy the ones you want at the price budget that works for you.

This is because for each silo companies make different versions, to accommodate for different price points,
