When it comes to football boots choosing the best ones for you can be one of the toughest decisions a footballer can make.
That is because especially in recent years there have been so many different football boots released on to the market by brands.
And while it is cool to have so many brands, designs, silos, versions, you name it, it can make your task that little bit harder.
Especially if you don’t know where to start.
This is where I come in, hopefully, to help you and push you in the right direction on what football boots are the best for you and can help you give you the best experience on the pitch.
So in this post, I am going to highlight the top 11 football boots that for me stand above the rest, as well as answering some questions you may have also.
In no particular order, we start with the highly sought after Nike Mercurial Superfly’s.
The reason for the popularity boils down to two things:
- Performs great on the pitch, being very responsive, allowing players to turn off quickly.
- Worn by one of the best footballers to grace a football pitch in Cristiano Ronaldo
Now as I alluded to at the start, you have so many boots to choose from and there is no boot that fits that more than the Mercurials.
Nike has done so much with the Mercurials over the years to keep on improving the model with each release to make each one better than the one before.
The end result is that over the past few years there are a number of lightweight football boots with some interesting unique designs to match.
What I like about the Mercurial Superfly’s:
- Made for speed and agility
- ACC Tech makes them effective in any weather
- Vaporposite upper gives you flexibility
Nike Phantoms are one of the newest silos to be released and are another quality pair of footwear for footballers to consider from Nike.
These boots are made to help footballers excel in multiple areas of that game, with a prime focus on the passing and control of the ball aspect.
A combination of Generative texture and Flyknit material gives you overall better control of the ball helping you dictate games to your tempo.
What I like about the Phantom GT’s:
- Made for passing and control
- An effective generative texture on the upper
- Hyperquick system
Nike Tiempo Legends is a silo that has been widely popular amongst footballers for decades ever since its release back in the ’80s.
Now despite being around for a long time, Nike has always kept these boots fresh and up to date, so that they deliver both in performance and comfortability.
With the latest release of Nike Tiempos, we still get that stability and comfort we have become used to thanks to the soft kangaroo leather.
You also get that simplicity with the Tiempo, which is often hard to find nowadays, as you have a colourway consisting of a green Nike swoosh with the rest of the boot being white.
What I like about the Nike Tiempo’s:
- A Very Comfortable Boot
- Simple Design
- Performs Well On The Pitch
