This is my opinion about best football boots for strikers.
5. Adidas F50 Adizero 2015
Engineered by adidas with a super soft HybridTouch upper, the f50 adizero FG football boots derive all the benefits of leather in a strong yet lightweight synthetic with excellent long-term shape retention.
With new functional 360 degree Dribbletex, a raised grip texture on the entire upper, the f50 delivers increased ball control at every angle when dribbling at speed in wet or dry conditions and also stabilises the
For a bold look that stands out on the pitch, the new f50 adizero FG football boots feature an eye-catching emotional ghost graphic and totally new three stripes branding on the heel.
The next generation new ultra-light outsole with speed stud configuration includes a new extra layer of studs on the base of the forefoot, inspired by sprint spikes, for increased grip and traction on firm ground.
4. Puma evoSpeed SL
PUMA’s speed boot has evolved to take lightweight to a completely new level, with the brand presenting its lightest match day boot ever. The PUMA evoSPEED SL.
The PUMA evoSPEED SL features an ultra-thin textile upper to provide an almost barefoot touch on the ball, while also reducing the overall weight of the boot to produce an extremely lightweight feel on your feet.
Within the upper of the evoSPEED SL is the brand’s laser-cut SPEEDFRAME system, which in key areas harnesses the foot when accelerating and turning under heavy pressure. The sole of this SL benefits from PUMA’s raised SPEEDTRACK spines to offer torsional stability to the foot for explosive power when striking the ball.
Designed for use on firm ground surfaces only, the evoSPEED’s soleplate includes a mixture of conical and bladed studs to supply instant traction for better acceleration on the pitch.
3. Nike Mercurial Vapor X
With an ultra-thin Teijin microfibre upper that moulds to the shape of the foot, the Junior Mercurial Vapor X FG football boots have been designed by Nike to deliver a barefoot feel and responsive fit.
Generating increased friction on the ball for reliable control at speed, the micro-textured surface produces an enhanced touch while ACC technology ensures consistent grip in wet and dry conditions.
A new tongue-less upper, heel cup and midfoot combine to provide the kids Mercurial Vapor X football boots with support exactly where it’s needed and a fantastic locked-down fit.
Mirroring the contours of the foot, the perforated sockliner offers premium support, low-profile cushioning and reduced stud pressure.
A lightweight nylon sole plate with a split toe features redesigned and reconfigured blades with added studs at the heel for increased stability and at the toe for rotational toe-off traction.
2. Adidas Messi 15
Every single time Lionel Messi steps out onto the pitch, you know that sometime during the next ninety minutes, he’ll do something to turn the game in his team’s favour. Not just when he’s feeling good, or when he’s on form – every single match. That’s the kind of relentlessly consistent performance you’ll get from his new boot, developed by adidas to make sure you’re always ready to be the difference.
Designed in collaboration with the Argentinian magician, the Messi 15.1 is a boot that’s built to win everything. With an innovative new forefoot stud layout and X-ray upper, supported by revolutionary messiFRAME construction and a messi GAMBETRAX outsole, every aspect of Messi’s latest boot is intended to unleash greatness.
The Messi 15.1 boasts a super-soft leather-like forefoot with 3D grip for a pristine first touch, and an engineered 3D cage in the heel area for added stability on the turn. With such efficient all-round design, you’re ready to accelerate away in any direction, just like Leo.
1. Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7
Sophisticated and elegant, Nike have created a pair of Mercurial Superfly FG football boots worthy of CR7 with a unique shimmer effect created through a new iteration of NikeSkin technology.
The Superfly micro-textured Flyknit upper delivers an unprecedented barefoot feel and amplified touch without compromising strength or durability and includes a bold CR7 logo on the medial heel.
Flywire cables, knitted directly into the one-piece upper, lock the eyelet into the outsole providing additional strength and lock down creating strength similar to a suspension bridge.
A special NikeSkin application that adheres to the top of the Flyknit upper prevents water getting in without adding layers while ACC technology provides the same grip on the ball in wet and dry conditions.
Designed for locked-down comfort at full speed, the Dynamic Fit Collar increases awareness of interaction with the ground and ball for a heightened sensation of the Superfly as an extension of the foot.
Lower to the ground, the full-length carbon-fibre plate lowers the centre of gravity for enhanced traction and it’s flexible dual layer construction improves power transmission to the ground.
The Vapor traction system features redesigned and reconfigured blades with added studs at the heel for increased stability and at the toe for rotational toe-off traction on firm ground.
I hope that, this list helped you to choose the best boots for you.
