The holiday season is coming and with Christmas shopping earlier than ever we thought now would be a good time to share with you the best soccer boots of 2015 ahead of purchasing a pair for your friends or children.
With the top of the Premier League as exciting as it has ever been and with El Clasico just around the corner, we thought we’d share with you all the boots all your favorite stars are wearing this season.
1. Nike Mercurial
A very popular model worn by Premier League players, the Nike Mercurial was responsible for 213 goals in the English top flight last season – more than any other pair of boot. Leading the way was Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez who often wears these in bright orange.
Nike Mercurial’s are available in many different colors and in a couple of weeks you can see Cristiano Ronaldo sporting them in El Clasico when his Real Madrid take on Barcelona at Camp Nou in one of the most-anticipated games of every season.
2. Adidas F50
There are seemingly only two brands of football boots among the top players in the Premier League; Nike and Adidas. The German company’s F50 boot was responsible for 162 goals in the Premier League last season and leading the way was controversial Chelsea striker Diego Costa.
After a slow start from both the Spaniard and his side this season, Costa appears to be heading in the right direction in terms of being a goal threat again this season. These boots will also be on display in El Clasico, assuming that Gareth Bale features. The Welsh wizard has had many a successful season in them.
3. Nike Magista
The next most popular pair of football boots is the Nike Magista range. These are closely-linked with a number of the world’s top playmakers – Andres Iniesta, Christian Eriksen, Mario Gotze and Yohan Cabaye all wear these.
Other champions to sport these boots are Barcelona-bound Arda Turan and Paris Saint-Germain duo Thiago Silva and David Luiz.
4. Adidas Predator
A boot that has been around for more than two decades, originally designed by former Liverpool player Craig Johnston. They’re still going strong, in fact 104 Premier League goals were scored in these boots only last season.
Two of the world’s greatest footballers wore these throughout most of their career – Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham. Now who wouldn’t want to be associated with those names?
