Which Boots Should I Choose – Answered!

adiZero vs evoSPEED

Adidas F50 adiZero vs Puma evoSPEED 1.2

Bryan: Adidas F50 adiZero – I like where Puma is headed with the evoSPEED series, but there is a little more panache about the current adiZero. And the light textured upper adds better touch on the ball.

Kevin: Puma evoSPEED 1.2 – The evoSpeed are one of my favourite “Speed boots” on the market, and they also have some nice eye catching colourways.

Jim: Puma evoSPEED 1.2 – Puma have done a fantastic job evolving the V-speed range into the evospeed range we know it as today and the results speak for themselves. The evospeed is a much better rounded speed boot than the adizero. It also helps that it is more visually appealing as well.

Tyler: Adidas F50 adiZero – The evoSPEED is a good boot, don’t get me wrong. In terms of qualityit is probably on par with the F50’s synthetic model, but it’s the fact that Adidas has continued to put out a leather version of its speed silo that really edges the evoSpeed here.

Colin: Puma evoSPEED 1.2 – I praised the F50 adiZero earlier, but who am I to go against the likes of Kun Aguero and Giroud who are racking up goals in the EPL this season. I have not had the chance to wear a pair of the evoSPEEDs, so given the chance I would take it in a heart beat.

Ethan: Adidas F50 adiZero –  Again, the F50 adiZero wins it for me.  The evospeeds are a great boot but I still enjoyed the heel counter and the leather option from adidas more.  But I can say that from a visual standpoint, these two boots are tied for flashiness and design.

Richard: Puma evoSPEED 1.2 – Proper conical studs and designs with some personality, it’s Puma all the way here.

Final Tally: F50 adiZero 3 – evoSPEED 4

  1. Congrats! Great article!

  2. Having worn both the Tiempo and the adiPure 11 Pro, I have to say that the adiPure 11Pro is a great boot.. I would never compare it to the Tiempo though. I am happy the Tiempo is around because it retains the slightly more classic feel. I like both boots and can't pick one over the other. But I would say the for people wanting a more classic feel, go for the Tiempo. If you want a blend between modern and classic, then go with the adiPure 11Pro.

    • Also, In the Warrior vs. Nike matchup, I would take the Warrior. I have worn both and the Skreamer really surprised me. Plus the customer service at Warrior was second to none, making Nike's look almost un-professional.

  3. I had problems with the stud pressure in the Tiempo's as well, glad to hear I'm not alone on that.

    • Yeah at the front of my right foot was very uncomfortable. The left slightly uncomfortable as well. I was very disappointed with the Tiempo.

  4. How about comparing the Nike Tiempo IV to my son’s favorite boot, the Umbro Speciali 4 Pro HG?

  5. with veloce vs f 30, I would rather buy an old pair of top end shoes.

  6. what shoes should I wear if I am playing on a land with no grass on it????
