Cleats or studs are protrusions on the sole of a shoe, or on an external attachment to a shoe that provides additional traction on a soft or slippery surface. In American English, the term cleats are used synecdochically to refer to shoes featuring such protrusions. This does not happen in British English; the term ‘studs’ is never used to refer to the shoes, which would instead be known as ‘football boots’, ‘rugby boots’, and so on. Now let us check top 5 best soccer cleats 2017.

Best soccer cleats 2017:

1. Adidas F50 adiZero

If this list was composed in October, the F50 adiZero would still be in the 10, but it wouldn’t sit in the top spot. But, Adidas made some modifications to their Samba release and the fine-tuning has worked out really, really well.

This is a very high performing boot that suits its intended purpose exceptionally well. They are lightweight, offer great feel on the ball, are durable thanks to the inclusion of Hybrid Touch through the forefoot. It is a much softer synthetic material and allows the upper to really mold around your forefoot.

Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale, Edison Cavani and Luis Suarez are just a few of the world-class players you can find wearing these right now!

2. Mizuno Morelia Neo

It took several years of pushing, but finally, Mizuno entered the US market and they have a top selection of boots on offer. The Ignitus could easily have found its way onto this list but it is the Morelia Neo that currently stands as their leading performer.

In terms of comfort, they are fantastic and the fit is so natural you feel like you are running barefoot. But they offer solid protection and I can’t think of another boot that provides optimal touch on the ball while also standing the test when striking shots.

I love the feel as you strike shots on a frame or play long balls across the field. They cost a pretty penny, but you get what you pay for!

3. Puma King

 

And then there is the Puma King 2013, a boot that proved to be a very surprising addition to my boot arsenal this year. For long periods, they served as my “go to” boot and provided pure consistency with total comfort when needed. Puma controversially removed a traditional k-leather upper and introduced a calf-skin leather. It seems like a lot of companies is going this way and thankfully, in this case, it didn’t prove to be negative. On artificial surfaces, the stud configuration is a dream and stands as one of the leading choices I recommend. What sets these so high on the list (and ahead of the Vapor) is their price point, and they are a true value for money option in that area.

4. Diadora DD-NA

Diadora entered the lightweight market with this 6.4oz speed boot in 2013 and they were an absolute delight. We frequently recognize the Italian company for their consistent comfort, but to create a boot like this they needed to challenge the norm. Thankfully, these are just as comfortable and the thin upper provides a pitch-perfect balance between protections and feel on the ball. Kudos to Diadora on what they were able to achieve with this release!

5. Nike Hyper venom Phantom

Even from release, fans were well informed about exactly what the Hypervenom had to offer, and it wasn’t anything like the T90 Laser range. Nike retired the latter and created a boot with a new level of performance. Agility is the focus and players like Neymar, Lewandowski and Wayne Rooney have adopted them as their boot choice with ease.

There is definitely room for this one to sit higher on the list, but I have some reservations with the sizing as they are not as snug as I’d like them to be (all be it they are intended to offer a slightly wider foot).

I hope you find this list of best soccer cleats of 2017 helpful.
