Are you interested in learning more about what boots does Jack Grealish wears?
Today sees us look at the Birmingham-born midfielder and the footwear he rocks with on match days with Aston Villa.
If you are interested in his game and the boots that help him become the player he is, you will learn a thing or two in this post.
Who Is Jack Grealish?
Jack Grealish, a player who plays for the midlands based premier league side Aston Villa.
He normally plays within that central attacking midfield role, where he is known for his creation of goals.
However, on occasion, he likes to drift wide, as he is a player who likes to roam around and make things happen.
While Jack is regarded as one of his team’s best players, his career has been an interesting journey.
Apart from a short loan spell to Nott’s county in the 2013 season at 18, the rest of his footballing time has been with Aston Villa.
Grealish made his mark on the first time, in a difficult spell towards the end of the 2014/15 season, where Aston Villa was relegated to the championship.
However, despite many offers, the teen stuck with his club and brought them back up to the Premier League in 2019.
Since the season where he steered the team to promotion, Grealish has been captain of his side. His performances also caught England manager Southgate’s interest, who gave him his first cap.
What Boots Does Jack Grealish Currently Wear?
Currently, the go-to boots for attacking midfielders are between Nike Phantom GT and Adidas’s current X Ghosted boots.
Grealish has, though, opted for Nike’s set for boots, joining fellow premier league players like Harry Kane and Kevin De-Bruyne, who wear the Phantom GT’s
How The Nike Phantom GT Elite Help Jack Grealish?
Over the course of the 2020/21 season so far, Jack has had nearly 1 assist every other game in the league with a record of 10 assists in 22 games.
Jack is great at making runs in the final third and has the stats support possesses great ability to pick out players, to help create goalscoring opportunities.
While Jack has quite literally played in ruined and knackered boots that have seen their final days, there is ultimately a reason why he has stuck with Nike boots throughout his career.
In this section, I will go over a few parts of his game where his current boots help him succeed in the modern game.
One of Grealish’s best areas of his games is his dribbling. He is great at keeping the ball close to his feet at all times.
The fact that the Englishman was brought down 128 times in 2019/2020, not only being the most fouled player but breaking the record with just over 1/4 of the season to go, speaks volumes.
When Jack has the ball in front of his feet, it is hard to take it off him. This is because he often drops a shoulder or pulls off a skill move to leave his player left for dead.
He isn’t the most explosive player, like Ronaldo or Neymar. However, his great control and awareness are what make him a great player.
Boots like the Nike Phantom GT Elite give you that upper hand. They have integrated on them a Flyknit upper, enhancing players like Jack touch.
Another aspect of Grealish’s game I am a fan of is his decisiveness. Often Jack is put in pressurized situations, which are to be expected when playing high up.
However, you will rarely see him give the ball away or make poor passes. What helps him is the ghost lace system which is featured in the Phantom GT’s.
Since the laces are not visible, you have an upper, which provides you a better strike of the ball, helping players like Jack make cleaner passes.
Boots He Has Previously Worn
Grealish was notably known for clinging on to a pair of Nike Hypervenoms a few years ago, in the season where he helped Aston Villa the last of three premier league spots.
What happened was the player got injured. However, when he returned to the team in March, he decided to stick with his old boots.
These boots were the Nike Hypervenoms, of which were pictured to be in pieces and battered. There were even parts of the boots that were coming off.
Already on this site, I have spoken about how often you should change your boots, and you would think in this case with Jack that he would just buy some more.
However, he decided to stick with the broken boots because they were the ones he had scored goals and assists in earlier that season.
While I know some footballers who are on a decent wage would just replace them, ultimately, this decision by him paid off.
Who Else Wears Jack Grealish’s Boots?
Jack’s side Aston Villa mostly wears Nike boots, but of his teammates, Matty Cash and John McGinn, who have had solid seasons, also wear Phantom GT elite.
As for the rest of the premier league, you have Cavani, Robertson, Havertz, and Dias, to name a few.
I hope you found this post useful and that you were able to learn more about what boots Jack Grealish wears and the effects they have on his game.
