The 5 key categories featured in the columns are as follows:

COM – “Comfort”; How do the boots break in and how do they feel during a 90 minute game?
PER – “Performance”; For striking shots to general traction across multiple surfaces, how does the boot function in game?
TEC – “Tech Specs”; What has the brand done to create a different type of positive experience for players? And most importantly, does it work?
VIS – “Visual Effect”; How does the boot look and is there a standout “Hollywood” effect when you see them first?
CAT – “Category Score”; Each boot falls into a specific category. Examples include speed, comfort, power, control or economical. We base the specific boot against every other boot in that bracket.
AVE – “Average”; The boots average score across 5 categories.


In order to evaluate appropriately, we use a scale of 1-10. But, we only use scores between 4 and 10. To give you more details and how we think about each boot, the following one-word guide best describes each number:

4 – Awful
5 – Not good
6 – Average
7 – Good
8 – Impressive
9 – Absolute quality
10 – Top class, it doesn’t get better!


  1. Please do some reviews on mizuno and lotto takedowns please???

  2. Do you have suggestions on cleats for my daughter who will begin her U17 season? Too many choices out there! She’ll be D1-bound, playing on artificial turf and also has a wide foot.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    • Cathy, if she is an adidas fan, I'd strongly recommend the adidas Primeknit series. They are extremely comfortable, ideal for multiple surfaces and suit a wider fit. There is the Ace 15.1 Primeknit, which is last seasons style, and the Ace 16.1 Primeknit, the current new release. If you can find the 15.1, it is a better choice in my opinion. It is likely to be a little cheaper and they are a top rated option!

      • I just ordered a pair of Vapor 11 AG sole plate. I;ve been using Tiempos for last 6 months. Am i going to regret the comfort level of the new vapors? Thanks in advance for any input.

        • No, Vapors are decent comfort wise. They have the attached tongue, which makes them slightly tight across the midfoot. But this will loosen up over time! As long as they fit right, you will enjoy them!

      • What do you recommend for Nike fans in this situation?

      • I have a daughter that is a Nike girl. Is there a fg/age cleat you suggest as well?

  3. Can you please suggest the best speed shoes (FG and turf)? I would not be using this for soccer and so touch is irrelevant, only their weight and traction matter. The focus is speed/acceleration and absolutely nothing else (except decent durability/comfort). Thank you so much.

    • Yeah, I’d strongly recommend the Puma evoSPEED in that case. Another recommendation would be a pair of Mercurial Vapors – any of the past 3 generations (find the best price and you are golden!)

  4. I want Neymar Jr football boots 2016 with a sock attatched to it for free

  5. Recommendation for a college goalkeeper..thanks!

  6. adalberto marinl

  7. I would be interested in seeing the UA Cluch Fit 2.0 in the review

  8. Hi,

    Ive been reading your reviews so far but still can't decide on my next boots 🙁

    Can you help me?

    I've been a Mercurial player for a long time, then move to Messi boot last year, and still using Mercurial as my futsal boot. It's been good so far, but I found that I always feel "tired" wearing these boots, and I read somewhere that I need wider boots because my feet is a little bit wide.

    I need something that can accomodate my playing style – agility, control midfielder. I'm considering Hypervenom, but need your advices on other brands as well.

    Thank you!

  9. Would like to see a review on the lotto zhero gravity VIII 200.

  10. I really trust you for solid reviews, which one do prefer Between the Adidas gloro 16.1 and Copa 17.2 ?

  11. What are the top 5 recommend nike soccer cleats?

  12. No Adidas Predator 18.1?

  13. I'm looking for new cleats, I play central midfield. I've been wearing Nike Mercurial Superfly Vs for some time now, looking at some other options. So far I'm looking at the new Superfly VI and the Adidas X18.1. Any suggestions would be great, thanks!

  14. I have a wide foot would mercurial superfly6 be fine?

  15. good post admin

  16. Hey, are you going to review Speedflow.1? Or Puma Ultra 1.3? I’ve seen a few articles, but not an actual review

  17. Have you tried the new TruBoot? I see some EPL players wearing them. I think I can get you a pair of them.

  18. Opal stone is a white-colored translucent semi-precious gemstone and an economical substitute for precious Diamonds. Opals are considered highly auspicious for people born in the month of October. In the wide gemstone arena, it is deliberated as the most colorful gemstone; arising in a number of colors like red, yellow, green, slate, blue, and purple.
