The 10 Best men's football boots
Stroke the ball like Xavi or thump it like the Kaiser with this wide selection of boots for all levels of player
1. Adidas Copa Mundial
Most of Adidas's new boots are more colourful than a Rio parade. For connoisseurs, the Copa Mundial design, which first came out in 1979, is an enduring choice.
2. Hummel Roma Vintage
They may look like they should be worn by Billy Dane from Billy's Boots, but this pair from Hummel are made from light leather so you won't get stuck in the mud.
3. Nike Mercurial Glide III Turf
The turquoise might not be for everyone, but if your five-a-side skills are flash enough invest in a pair of these.
4. Nike Tiempo Legend IV
These are pricey at £100+ but their kangaroo leather snuggles to your feet like slippers, making your first touch feel almost Xavi-esque, especially on a firm pitch.
5. Puma King Top
If you've played football for a number of years, chances are you've owned a pair of Kings. This pair offers lightweight leather and plastic moulded studs.
6. Umbro Speciali 3
Owners Nike may be slowly phasing out the Umbro brand, but the Manchester-based firm still makes nice gear. Umbro's Specialis are the top of the range.
7. Under Armour Force II FG
The US sports brand marked its big push into the UK football market with its sponsorship of Tottenham this summer. This is one of its cheaper pairs.
8. Asics Lethal Tigreor 5
Asics has focused on running in the UK, but you can still pick up its boots. The Tigreor features a slight forward tilt to take the strain off your legs.
9. Adidas Men's Kaiser 5 Cup
Forget Nike v Adidas, for some boot connoisseurs the only real battle is between Adidas's two classic boots – the Copa Mundials and this famous pair.
10. Mizuno Morelia Classic
A well-priced pair from the Japanese kit maker. Available with both soft and firm ground studs, the Morielas have a trainer-like level of comfort.
