World Cup Boots
The 2022 World Cup will provide boot manufacturers with the opportunity to showcase their exciting new designs.
With that in mind, we look at the top World Cup boots for Qatar 2022 before assessing the best World Cup boots of all time.
Adidas World Cup Boots
You will need your sunglasses on to look at the adidas range of World Cup boots – the brightly coloured ‘Al Rihla’ pack.
Featuring the Predator Edge+, X Speedportal and COPA Sense, the boots have been inspired by Qatar’s architecture, iconic boats and the country’s flag.
Our favourite is the white/multicolour Predator Edge+ which bear a close resemblance in design to the official 2022 World Cup ball.
Nike World Cup Boots
The Nike 2022 World Cup football boots pack incorporates three of the firm’s most popular sellers – Mercurial, Phantom GT and Tiempo.
The metallic gold outsoles are particularly eye-catching and are a nod towards the iconic World Cup trophy.
We love the striking space purple colour of the Tiempo World Cup boot, which has breathed new life into one of Nike’s most popular products.
Puma World Cup Boots
The Puma World Cup boots are the ‘Fearless’ pack, which takes the Ultra Ultimate and Future Z and wraps them in bright colourways for Qatar 2022.
The Future Z 1.4 boots are the pick of the bunch, with the ‘Fizzy Light’ upper popping over the ‘Fiery Coral’ base.
Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil star Neymar will wear the boots during the tournament, which should ensure plenty of sales for Puma.
The Best World Cup Boots of All Time
We’ve shown you the top boots for Qatar 2022 – now it’s time to consider which are the best World Cup boots of all time.
Davis Beckham’s adidas Predator Mania from 2002 are a strong contender, along with the Diadora Maximus 14 Francesco Totti wore four years later.
However, has there been a more iconic pair of boots than the Nike Mercurial worn by Brazil’s Ronaldo during the 1998 World Cup?
