What Are The Popular Soccer Boots That The Pros Wear?

The Nike Legend is one of the most popular of the Nike soccer Adizero Football Shoes cleats especially if you are looking for comfortable and durable soccer cleats. The level of comfort in these shoes make them a favorite of famous players like Ronaldinho and Cesc Fabregas.

In May 2010, Nike came out with the Elite Series football boots providing even a higher level of performance than before. They reduced the weight of each boot, giving the players the ability to perform at their best. The Tiempo Legend III is 16% lighter.

The UPPER is made of Kangaroo leather for ultimate comfort. The MID-SOLE has a molded sock liner of Poron cushioning for extra comfort and fit. The OUTSOLE has a new lightweight construction for optimal traction. These boots are available in high contrasting colors, making it easier to spot their teammates.

Researchers have determined the average energy expenditure of an elite player. By reducing the weight carried by the player, it reduces the energy needed over a 90 minute match. Nike’s lightweight, supercharged boots give the players an edge in the final minutes of the game.

The Adidas F50 Adizero Football Shoes are very easy to break in and have become famous for being so light-weight, giving the player great speed. They are very comfortable, right from the first time they are worn. The new synthetic version is several ounces lighter than the leather version for extra speed capabilities.

A Sprint skin single layer synthetic makes up the UPPER, which reduces the weight of the boot. The INSOLE has an ultralight sock liner designed to reduce bulk. The Sprint frame in the OUTSOLE is for light-weight stability that improves balance at high speeds.

The first player to debut the new synthetic Adizero was Diago Forlan. Lionel Messi from Argentina wore his own Chameleon Purple version during the World Cup in South Africa. Other players sporting the new synthetic Adizero were Jozy Altidore from USA, David Villa from Spain, Arjen Robben from the Netherlands and Jermain DeFoe from England.

This year, Adidas released the Metallic Gold/Black/White boot for Lionel Messi. The Adizero F50’s were the top goal scoring boots in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa last summer, and a favorite among professionals. Other players wearing the F50 were Gonzalo Higuain, Daniel Alves, David Silva, Samir Nasri, Thomas Muller, Asamoah Gyan, Salomon Kalou, Nani, Diego Forlan, and Gareth Bale.
