Adidas adiZero F50 – Top Scoring Boot at the World Cup

Six of the nine leading goal scorers at this World Cup agree that the Adidas adizero F50 is the boot for them!

What do James Rodriguez, Lionel Messi, Thomas Muller, Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben, and Karim Benzema all have in common?

Two things actually, they’re six of the leading goal scorers at the ongoing World Cup, and they’re all wearing a pair of the Adidas adizero F50‘s (either Battle or Earth pack). I don’t think I’ve seen a World Cup, where so many of the leading goal scorers are all wearing the exact same boot!

It’s been a banner couple of weeks for Adidas’ speed boot. Which have been on the feet of players who’ve combined to score just shy of 30% of total goals scored in the World Cup. But it’s not just goals where the F50 reigns supreme. If there’s an attacking statistical category the F50 is leading it.

As you can see above, Karim Benzema has the most shots on target with 19. James Rodriguez has been the breakout player so far leading the golden boot standings with 5 goals. Lionel Messi has popped four goals and also put the ball into the danger zone 21 times. Finally, Arjen Robben has done 10 times so far what Arjen Robben is known for dribbling the ball into the opposition penalty area creating havoc.


The F50 has been far and away star performing boot of the World Cup, and it’ll be interesting if  in 10 days time the Golden Boot will be awarded to an F50 wearer like James Rodriguez or Thomas Muller, or perhaps a player with a customized pair of F50‘s like Lionel Messi or perhaps Robin van Persie.

  1. Overall what the pros are wearing is irrelevant. They are not wearing the boots that the public can purchase. With custom fits, different upper materials, custom stitching to the leathers, different sole plates, etc. They are painted to look like what we can have. That is why we look to websites like this to give real insight on the quality and performance of the silos.

    • I didn't know that, thanks for the info.

    • 2 points against what you just said there 1) Not all pro players get the pro treatment, only the top top guys and even from that list not everyone has special requests. James and Suarez for example. 2) Some players may play in different material uppers but apart from Van Persie they ALL use Sprintframe. In the Nike camp you see lots of old or modified sole plates but not with adidas. I think this shows how good adidas build their boots.

      • But you do not often see the custom uppers on nike pro boots like you do with adidas. The point is they are paid to wear these boots. They usually go to the highest bidder.

  2. The Adizero F50s are on a great rampage of goals thanks to the players who wears them and how they are playing.

  3. Hah, and I thought they were all wearing Predators Instincts
