One of the most important pieces of equipment in a footballers arsenal, besides the obvious football, is of course the trusty football boot. After all even the most skilful of players could use a little help when it comes to taking powerful shots, navigating treacherous turns as well as ensuring the general safety of their foot. Like the game of football, football boots have evolved over the years from sturdy soles of leather with thick studs hammered into them to lightweight boots with various technologies integrated into them.Time has seen various boots grace the feet the top stars of their generation from Pele and Diego Maradona, who immortalized the Puma King to David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane, who put the Adidas Predators on the map. The stars of today are also defined by the boots they wear and were going to take a look at them by going through the top 10 boots worn by footballers.

#10 Harry Kane (Nike Hypervenom Phatal II)

After a phenomenal debut season which put him within touching distance of the Premier League Golden Boot, earned him a place on the PFA Team of the Year, won him the PFA Young Player of the Year Award as well as the Tottenham Player of the Year award, Harry Kane faces the unenviable task of surpassing those achievements this season. His first few games haven’t gone as he would have hoped and people are already writing him off as a won season wonder. However, Kane isn’t having any of it and will be hungrier than ever to silence his critics. The striker will be aided in his quest by Nike’s Hypervenom Phatal II boots, which are the perfect combination of power and great speed. Will he put them to good use?

#9 Adnan Januzaj (New Balance Furon Pro FG)

Touted as one of the brightest young talents in football, Januzaj had a disappointing second season at Manchester United after his debut season heroics, but by the looks of things his lack of game time has only increased his hunger this season and now looks like a player bent on becoming a first team regular. The 20-year-old looks increasingly lively with every game this season and way just as well mature into a lethal attacker once he fully develops as a player. The Belgian will be aided in his quest by New Balance’s Furon boots, which come with the slogan ‘Take Chances’, which is exactly what the youngster plans to do this season.

After a brilliant debut season at Arsenal where he was integral in their second FA Cup victory and even picked up the Player of the Year award for his heroics that season, Sanchez faces an uphill task of building on his brilliant first season, but the Chilean’s winning mentality as well as his hunger for success will surely see his through. Much of the Gunners’ attack threat will rest on his shoulders this season and to aid him in his quest, Nike has supplied the forward with a pair of Nike Mercurial Superfly SG Pro’s. Built for nothing but blistering speed, the Superfly’s will help Sanchez terrorize defences this season.

#7 Luis Suarez (Adidas X15)

Undoubtedly one of the best strikers in the world, Luis Suarez took a while to adapt to Barcelona’s style of play after his £75 million arrival from Liverpool, but when he finally found his feet there was no stopping him. The Uruguayan formed a lethal partnership with fellow forwards Messi and Neymar, which eventually formed the feared MSN, who were an integral part of Barcelona’s treble success last season. A lot is expected from Suarez this season, who will be more determined than ever to up his performance a notch, which will make him a beauty to watch. The 28-year-old will be aided in his quest by his Adidas X15 boots, which look as lethal as the players feet. The X15’s boast of an ultra light X-SKIN upper, an X-Cage for stability as well as an X-CLAW stud configuration among other things. I wouldn’t want to be standing in the way of his goals this season.

#6 Memphis Depay (Under Armour Speedform DreamChaser)

He’s touted as one of the best talents to emerge out of Holland and he’s at one of the biggest clubs in the world, attempting to kick up a storm in England. Memphis Depay faces no easy task in succeeding in the unforgiving English Premier League, but the youngster has overcome the toughest obstacles all his life and isn’t about to let this one faze him. Depay will wear a special edition of Under Armour’s Speedfrom boots, aptly titled DreamChaser, which is a nod to the tattoo on Memphis’ chest as well as a tribute to his burning ambition to be one of the best in the world. The boots boast of all the technology possible, including Micro G cushioning and ClutchFit skin, which will help the striker blitz past opposition. Memphis has a lethal weapon at his disposal, how well he uses it remains to be seen.

#5 Sergio Aguero (Puma evoSPEED SL 1.4)

Sergio Aguero will be immortalized for two reasons, the first being his unforgettable extra time goal against QPR which handed Manchester City their first Premier League title and the second reason being his reputation as one of the greatest strikers to ever grace the Premier League. The 27-year-old’s task is more important than ever this season considering that he’s now wears the number 10 for Manchester City, which leaves a major part of the team’s attacking potent on his shoulders. Kun will be aided in his task by his sponsor Puma’s evoSPEED SL 1.4 boots which, true to its tagline, enables its wearer to be ‘forever faster’. I don’t envy the defences who stand in his way this season.

#4 Wayne Rooney (Nike Hypervenom Phinish)

Rightly considered as one of the best English strikers of all time, Rooney faces his toughest challenge yet as the task of singlehandedly firing United to their former glory now rests on his shoulders. The goals haven’t come, and the doubters are screaming their lungs out. Will Wayne Rooney prove them wrong? The past has shown that he has, so it’s only a matter of time before he shows his doubters what he’s made of. The Englishman’s longtime sponsors, Nike have supplied him with a pair of Hypervenom Phinish football boots, which boast of nothing but explosive speed and trickery, much like the strikers on field performance. The Hypervenom’s are going to help Rooney Phinish off opposition this season.

#3 Neymar (Nike Hypervenom Phantom II)

After a brilliant second season at Barcelona, where he helped form the most deadly triumvirate in Europe, the Brazilian is all set to unleash hell on defences this campaign with the help of his strike partners. Regarded as one of the best young players in the game, Neymar totally justifies this title and already has 44 international goals to his name. A lot is expected of the dynamic forward this season, who will only become better as the seasons progress. The 23-year-old will be aided in his quest by his beautiful Nike Hypervenom Phantom II’s. The boots boasts of a crazy neon green colour and design, which is a lot like Neymar’s dynamic performances on the pitch. The boot, which is built for nothing but speed, will surely be lethal at the feet of Neymar this season, so expect some heroics to follow.

#2 Cristiano Ronaldo (Nike Mercurial Superfly)

The current Ballon D’Or winner faces no easy task in keeping a grip on his prize, but if history has told us anything it is that CR7 has continuously defied the odds. The Portuguese faces two massive challenges this season in the form of outdoing is last season tally of 61 goals as well as firing his team to glory this campaign. Like his major rival, whose name I do not need to mention, Ronaldo’s sponsor Nike have also crafted a boot with his technique in mind in the form of the Mercurial Superfly. This extremely lightweight boot is made up of carbon fibre, direct inject studs as well as Flyknit material add wings to CR7s feet. Expect Ronaldo to dismantle defences like he always does with the aid of his Superfly’s this season.

#1 Lionel Messi (Adidas Messi15 FG)

There are ordinary players, there are extraordinary players and then there’s Lionel Messi. He may not boast of an enviable height, but he’s still a giant among footballers and almost likely never to replaced by a successor. A spectacular player like him obviously deserves his own custom made boots, and that’s exactly what his sponsor Adidas have crafted in the form of the Messi FG boot. This superb boot comes in a wonderful space grey shade with the Messi logo etched on the back. Needless to say it’s equipped with various tech like a messiFRAME for stability, messiPRINT as well as messiGAMBETRAX which enhances play. It would be safe to say that this boot will see a lot of action and create a lot of goals this year on the feet of the little master.
