This post sees us look at the best Nike football boots in UAE you can buy.
With the growth of football in the middle east, with neighbours Qatar due to host the next edition of the world cup, it means there is more interest in football than ever.
So with the popularity growing and with channels like Bein Sports that offer coverage of the top leagues in the world, more people are inspired into picking up the sport each day.
However, to get started, you will need a solid pair of football boots, and what better place to start with than Nike.
Nike has been producing quality football boots for decades, and in today’s post, I will share with you 7 great football boot choices that are available for purchase in UAE.

Finding The Perfect Boots For You In UAE
Before I go straight into the pairs of boots I have researched and recommend, let me just say what will be included in this list.
In the list, I will be talking about various models that Nike offer, all of which you can buy for different surfaces and more than one surface.
A lot of the boots will also be worn by some of your role models.
This includes top tier players in the game such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes and Virgil Van-Dijk.
With the four-tier system, each boot range is split into different price ranges.
So you will be able to find boots that your favourite players wear while working with your budget.
So if you see a price listed, that is how much the boot’s best version is selling for. You can, though, get it much cheaper through their Academy, Club and Pro tiers.
I will also talk more about this and answer more of your questions in the Q&A section later on.
The Best 7 Nike Football Boots You Can Buy In UAE
Over the next section of this post, I will be taking you over seven different football boots that Nike has to offer.
I will explain what is good about them, their history, and my overall thoughts on them. So without further ado, let’s get right into it.
1) Nike Mercurial Dream Speed Superfly (AED 1,299)
The first on the list of Nike football boots you can purchase in UAE is the 8th generation Dream Speed Superflys.
These boots are made for pacey players and feature a different style to the regular Superflys.
The Dream speed versions have been made to be great for running away from opposing players with ease.
Chevron studs, along with a Nike Aerotrak zone on the sole of the boot, give you traction that helps you grip to the surface while also helping you explode away from defenders.
If you are all about speed, and of course, like this vibrant colourway, then the newest Dream Speeds could be for you.
2) Nike Premier (AED 170 – 480)
Nike Premier II’s are classic football boots made simply. Made of kangaroo leather, you have a sturdy, flexible and light material.
One of the features of these boots is the tongue that folds over the top of the laces. The benefit of this is that it keeps the laces hidden and allows you to have a better football strike.
Now the simple look isn’t the only thing to like about these, as they also quite snug on the inside.
If you like your boot simple and close to those years ago, then the premiers are a great route to go down.
3) Nike Mercurial Vapor 14 (AED 1,299)
Now, if you like the first mercurials on the list, you will probably be on board with the Mercurial Vapors.
They look similar to the 7th generation Dream Speeds. However, along with the slick white and black pattern, these have blue, red, and a bit yellow too.
I like what Nike has done with these, with yet again the addition of Nike Aerotrac to optimize your movement, which helps you change direction and power off.
To give you a comfortable experience on the pitch, the emergence of 360° Flyknit construction gives you a fit that wraps around your feet, keeping them snug.
Finally, these boots can be worn in all conditions. Now I know UAE is known for its crazy hot temperatures.
But if you do come across a day where the weather isn’t great and it rains constantly, the ACC (stands for All Conditions Controlled) on the upper will allow you to play your best game.
4) Nike Phantom GT (AED 1,299)
The Nike Phantom GT’s are designed to get the best out of your game by aiding you in making precise ball strikes.
Now, if you have played football, you will know how making intricate passes at the right moments is so key.
In some scenarios, it can be the difference between winning and losing a game of football.
This is exactly why, with the Phantoms, Nike have added components into these boots to help you.
Generative Texture is by far the stand out feature of this boot. It consists of various patterns along the upper placed to give you an optimal feel on the ball.
It has been engineered so the ball grips to your feet, but not to a point where you are tripping over the ball.
So it’s safe to say Nike has found a balance that works, and with players like Kevin De-Bruyne who wear them praising the boots, it does speak volumes.
5) Nike Tiempo Legend (AED 1,299)
To have a break from all the speedy boots, let us turn our attentions to the Nike Tiempo Legends.
These are a good option if you’re from UAE and you want a different experience from a boot.
Tiempos are somewhat separate from the other Nike ranges.
With your Mercuirals and Phantoms, Nike constantly tests out different materials and tech to make them more lightweight.
But with Nike Tiempo’s apart from the odd change, they are mostly kept the same, which for many footballers is what they want.
With the Tiempo Legend 8’s, you have a boot that is reminiscent of the earlier days while supplying you with the comfort and support you need to have your best game.
That is because the boot has Kangaroo Leather which is soft, flexible and durable in all conditions.
6) Nike Mercurial V ‘Motion Blur’ (AED 693)
One of the best packs of recent years, in my opinion, was the Motion Blue pack in early 2017.
As the name suggests featured four boots that had a blur of one colour mixed into white.
They were inspired by a previous pack called the ‘clash pack’ released before the start of the 2012 euros.
Design-wise, it’s very similar.
The difference is that the colours are more blended in to create this merge, as you can see by the photo above.
Now you are probably thinking about why I am saying this.
Well, one of these four boots to be released which footballers can still get their hands on is the Nike Mercurial V.
They come in white colour with the red blurred in from the back of the boot.
On the upper, you have the 3-D Speed Rib construction to give you good control of the ball.
With the name of the pack being ‘Motion Blur,’ you would guess that plenty of speed is involved.
That is, of course, the case with these too.
On the soleplate, they feature a 3D speed plate that is moulded to improve traction.
Out of all the boots on this list, they may be one of the trickiest to find since they were released 4 years ago.
However, with one of the cleanest designs in a merc, it might be worth picking a pair up if you can find one in stock.
7) Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 (AED 1,299)
Now, if you from UAE and prefer a dynamic collar on your football boots, well, that is where the Nike Mercurial Superfly’s enter the fray.
These boots that are blessed with a unique pattern featuring a range of colour along the upper has seen a few upgrades over the previous gen.
With these, the boot’s overall feel and stability have been improved, allowing for better changes of direction.
Nike Aerotrak being present allows the boot to be very flexible, giving you maximum acceleration moving off your feet.
If you prefer football boots without the sock, you can get the vapors which is essentially the same boot but without the collar for 120 AED less.
How Much Do Nike Football Boots In UAE Cost?
You probably know that to get all the best gear that Nike release, you will, unfortunately, have to spend a fair bit.
While the top boots are certainly great, I would even go as far as to say they offer great value and can make a difference.
Since they are made to last longer with better materials and more intricate knitting and offer better experiences.
But with that said, they aren’t for everyone, and Nike themselves know that.
This is why you have this tiered system, as I alluded to at the start of the post.
It allows you to pick out football boots at prices that suit you.
So if you are sticking to a budget of AED 200, then you will be able to find some good boots from the lowest tier range called ‘club’.
If your budget allows for more leeway, then you can get the best possible boots Nike has to offer.
An amount of 1300 AED would allow you to purchase any of the boots that take your fancy.
What Surfaces Should I Choose?
In the summers in UAE, the average temperature is around 35 degrees.
Even in the winter, it’s not uncommon for it to be mild.
So as a result, it’s sensible to choose football boots around the conditions you experience.
Here in England, the most popular boot choice is ones with studs, soft ground, as the pitches are more commonly wet and soggy.
But since UAE conditions are the polar opposite, the recommended choices to go for are between AG and FG boots.
Firm-ground is the best fits for hard ground. Artificial Grass boots will be the second option if you play on a 3G pitch.
Now, of course, you can still buy soft ground boots, so you have that option.
But if the weather is consistent all year round, and you’re only required to use them one or two times, it might not be worth it.
There you have it, above you have 7 solid Nike football boot choices if you reside in UAE and answers to some common questions to help you out.
