Use this FUN infographic to find the best football boots for you and your unique style of playErtheo Education & Sports
Buying a pair of football boots used to be stressful until we created this fun infographic to help you find the best football boots for you and your unique needs. Simply start at the top and follow the arrows until you arrive at your ideal pair of football boots.
Our infographic filters options by position, values, style of play, and finally the player’s unique needs, and features only the best football boots of the 2017-2018 football season.
Keep in mind…
Keep in mind that this infographic presents ONLY THE BEST football boots. Therefore, its purpose is to lead you to your IDEAL football boots. That is to say, unless you play at a professional level, it’s probably not necessary to spend 200 euros on a pair of football boots.
Nevertheless, regardless of your budget or level of play, you’ll find that this infographic can help you get a better idea of what kind of boot you’re looking for. For example, if according to the infographic, your IDEAL boot is the PUMA EVOpower Vigor, you know to look for a boot designed for both power and playmaking made with materials that guarantee better ball control. You could also simply search cheaper options similar to the PUMA EVOpower Vigor.
Finally, before actually purchasing a pair of these boots, it’s a good idea to go to a store and try them on. Everyone has different foot shapes and comfort preferences, and the infographic doesn’t take these personal preferences into account.
NOTE: This infographic does not take into account the many types of surfaces of play (soft ground, hard ground, indoor, etc.). All boots selected for these infographic are firm ground boots intended for typical well-groomed grass fields.
Why did we create it?
We created this infographic because we understand your struggle. First of all, the best boots can be quite expensive. Elite players can spend over 200 euros on a pair of boots.
Secondly, you can’t exactly try out a pair of cleats and then return them. And, no matter how many times you walk around the store in the cleats, you can’t be sure that they’re right for you until you try them out with a ball at your feet.
Lastly, football boots really do have the power to affect performance. That’s why there are so many different kinds made for different surfaces and different kinds of players with unique preferences and playing styles.
Researching the many different elements of football boots can be overwhelming. Players must take into account the surface of play, the weight of the boots, the material used, the boots’ priority (speed, power, control, comfort, etc.).
How did we do it?
Selecting the 7 best football boots
First, we had to do extensive research to find the best football boots of the 2017-2018 season. We read a lot of blogs and websites and crosschecked information with professional reviews and customer reviews to make sure the information was reliable. According to this information and these reviews, the seven best football boots currently on the market are as follows:
The seven best football boots of 2018 (in no particular order)
- Adidas X 17 Ocean Storm
- Adidas Nemeziz 17+ 360 Agility
- Nike Hypervenom Phantom 3 Elite DF
- Mercurial Superfly V FG
- Puma EVOpower Vigor
- Nike Magista Obra II Elite DF FG
- Adidas ACE17+ Purecontrol
Organizing the information
Next, we had to organize the information into the best boots for each position, the main function of each boot, and any other extra features of the boot that could cater to each player’s unique style. We decided to include only firm ground boots because firm ground is the most common and ideal playing surface (think typical grass field).
Of course, we also had to research the different playing styles of players in each position. Some full-backs, for example, are more aggressive and offensive while others are more patient playmakers. Some attackers find themselves in tight spaces and hectic situations, while others more often make long runs and long crosses.
