It seems like a simple question; “which boots are the best on the market right now?” With so many pairs out there, it is actually tougher to decipher than you might imagine, especially if you haven’t had experience with everything new.
Here we take a look at the best boots available on the US market and give you some ideas as to why these boots are the ones that you should be considering as you search for a new pair.
Adidas Ace+ Primeknit
Why? This is a case where an already super comfortable boot is matched with “the perfect fit”. The end result is a spectacular boot that already tops our list of 2015 releases.
Why? When it comes to mid-tier releases, Adidas has never been a real winner. But, the X15.2 is a very competitive release for its price point, with much improved performance. Plus the design mimics the X15.1 very well, ensuring fellow players won’t really be able to tell you are wearing a knockdown model.
Why? Under Armour is on a charge right now, with their releases backing up their desire to be a top player on the market. The Speedform features a unique one-piece inner lining to provides unparalleled comfort. They might be a well known soccer brand, but you seriously need to start considering them going forward.
Nike Tiempo Legend V
Why? If you haven’t heard, the next generation Tiempo Legend is set for release in December. Now is the time to pick up a pair of Tiempo Legend V and experience what they have on offer. Nike produced a classic style stitch on these, and the overall performance has quietly been receiving plenty of applause from those wearing them. Have you heard anyone say the Tiempo Legend sucks lately? Me neither!
Nike MagistaX Proximo
Why? The perfect shoe to transform you from a normal guy off the street to proper legend in any pick-up game. Nike has put a lot of work into their street game and the MagistaX tops the lot in terms of performance. The upper hugs your foot, while the traction sole will keep you gripped to the surface through play.
Mizuno Morelia Neo
Why? For so long, fans craved for Mizuno to release their boots here, so they did. If you have never experienced MIJ (or just don’t know what that means) you need to own a pair. There is no way around it! The Morelia Neo is a perfectly balanced speed boot, with a clean handcrafted leather upper and low profile conical stud configuration combining in the most eloquent fashion.
Diadora Brasil SPA
Why? There have been a lot of classic style boots released on the market of late, with the Brasil SPA leading the way in quality and performance. Made in Italy, the premium Kangaroo leather boots transport you to another era, but bring you right back when you wear them in game. They are a modern classic, crafted with pure style.
Nike Hypervenom Phantom
Why? If you can find a deal on a pair, I definitely recommend the Hypervenom Phantom II as a boot worth testing out. I’m personally not a big fan of the mid-cut collar, but off that type silo, these perform the best and have the most natural fit. Designed for attacking styled players that like to be deceptive by nature, this is a perfect perfect for dynamic movements.
