Best Boot Options for Players With Narrow Feet

Narrow Fitting Shoe Nemeziz

One of the most frustrating aspects of selecting a new boot for players can be ensuring you are getting the fit just right. With the introduction of more pliable materials over the past few seasons, options for wide fitting players have actually increased substantially. But that means the options for players in need of a more narrow fit have somewhat dwindled.

Although not a perfect science, here is a list of the boots we recommend checking out if you are trying to find something a little more snug!

adidas Nemeziz 17+ vs 17.1

In the Nemeziz, adidas has created a boot that can immediately offer mass appeal to a wide variety of fits. Why? Well, the upper is made of a mixed medical tape/bandage wrap style material called AGILITYBANDAGE, with individual layers used to wrap around and lock down the foot. The laceless style design of the boot ensures your entry into the boot is snug. What is so unique is the fact players with a wider foot will also find these to be comfortable, thanks to the amount of natural stretch in the actual material. But for players in need of a narrow fit, they will provide the right fit out of the box without overstretch through wear.

Racer Pink Superlfy and Vapor

It has long been the top recommended option for narrow fitting players, and the Vapor XI falls into the expected mold. It is the general construction of the boot with a higher arch cut that truly envelopes the foot and creates a dynamic fit. On the latest version, Nike has also implemented a no-tongue design so it really adds an extra level of snugness right through the midfoot.

Joma Propulsion FG

Given the fact there are not many Joma boots currently available or released in the US, you might be surprised to see one included here. But, in the Propulsion Lite, they have a boot that is narrow and mimics older model Nike Vapor releases. Right out of the box, you will notice just how thin they are, with the upper material hugging extremely snug from forefoot through to the heel. In order to complete the size, they fit just a tad bit long length wise. So, going down a half size when ordering is definitely something to consider or look into. One of the best things about this boot is its price, definitely a value for money option with some incredible sales on them available right now.

Mizuno Morelia Neo in Blue

When it comes to class and heritage, there really aren’t many better options on the market than the Morelia Neo. Mizuno has done an extraordinary job creating this wonderfully crafted boot. Looking at them, it is pretty obvious they are designed to accommodate a narrow fit, but what makes them an even better option is the lacing system, which really pulls the upper of the boot in close around your entire foot. The lacing is cut lower down toward the toe, and they are is a two-level lace hole system in play.

evoSPEED 17 SL Optical

Puma evoSPEED 17 (or SL)

Category: Speed
Retail: Check Prices

A definite boot to add to the serious consideration list due to the fact Puma love to create tight fitting boots. In many cases, you will need to go up a half size to make Puma boots fit so they love keeping things on the snug side. Add in a synthetic upper and the current evoSPEED 17 is a quality option if you like or need a fit to be extra cozy.

Nitrocharge History

Adidas Nitrocharge 1.0

Yes this is a boot that is no longer produced, but you can find remaining pairs available at great prices and they offer a very efficient skinny fit. I include them on this list as a “you need to pick up a pair now before they disappear option”. Not only do these boots have a snug fit through the midfoot, but the synthetic upper coupled with an EnergySling component ensure there is little stretch through wear. This is a boot built on the principles of energy and designed for players that like to work hard.

Warrior Superheat and Soleplate

We are closing in on the retirement of the Warrior brand, so this is another one for eBay. I actually rate as one of the best speed boots in recent times. Yes, the soleplate and stud configuration is pretty radical, but the overall performance and comfort of the boot is top notch. Right through the forefoot they offer a nice snug fit that provides support right around the foot. They can stretch to accommodate a wider foot through wear, but they are intended to be a narrow fitting option. Given the extremely low price on the remaining pairs of these boots, they are definitely worth checking out before they disappear. 

Nike Tiempo Legend 7 Released

Nike Tiempo Legend VII

Category: Touch/Control

The final addition to the list is a boot that is one of the newest released to the market. In typical Tiempo fashion, Nike has kept the fit on this one snug. The forefoot features several layers of material that create a locked in feel, one of these being Fit-Mesh. This new system helps contain your foot so the leather doesn’t have to. Flyknit through the midfoot and tongue encases some strings of Flywire, allowing you do dictate a more controlled fit pending how tight you want to lace them up. And finally, cushioned, articulated pods are used inside the boot around the ankle lining to help increase comfort and provide a locked-down fit.
