TOP 5 lightest football boots on market!

What is the most common argument that manufacturers sell their boots with TODAY?

It´s the WEIGHT.

I was always wondering how far they can go and where is the limit.

Industry develops every day and manufacturers are looking for new ways to achieve as low weight boots as possible.

That´s the reason why I decided to look where they are today and rank the current situation.
So I´m going to discover which are the TOP 5 lightest boots on the market today.

I´m going to compare Firm Ground (FG) football boots size 9.5.

  1. Hi Ravel,

    Great post, I got some valuable info from this, I didn´t knew before.
    Keep up the good work and I definitely return to visit your page again.

    Well done!

  2. Very great! I have been looking for way to compare boots by weight!
    I have sometimes injured my left ankle, but I still love to play and I shoot often. Are any of these boots ok with ankle support?

    • I got you.
      I really know what you are talking about.
      In that case I would say that you should use football boots that have a sock-a like collar. Just like Nike Mercurial Superfly, that I described in the post. It supports your ankle and helps to avoid injuries.

      There are many different series of boots of course beside this, like Nike Magista, Hypervenom etc.

      I´m sure these will help you to play football on.
