Adidas X19

Ultralight football shoes for the quickest and most daring players

Stylish design
Available in three colours/designs
Range of sizes available
Cushioned insole
Light and comfortable
Low price
Not designed for slower players

A boot designed for the speed-merchants among you. The fit of the boot is close and tight without suffocating your feet, while its lightweight feel gives an extra edge when dribbling and sprinting past opponents. 

The off-centre lacing leaves extra space on the outer part of the foot to allow a wider surface area for subtle touches on the ball during those high speed slaloms through the defence.

If you're more of a Leroy Sane than a John Terry then this is the boot for you.

Adidas Nemeziz

Boots that are all about agility

Split outsole design helps you accelerate away from the opposition
Inspired by sports taping, the laceless soccer cleats conform to your foot and give you a personalized fit
Provides stability and traction for those quick cuts and turns.
Design suits agile players better than some others

The Nemeziz series was first inspired by the process of taping that dancers and combat sport athletes perform. The idea of the boot was based around using adidas’ “Agility Bandages” to wrap around your foot for maximum lockdown and stability when making sharp movements on the field. 

This allows wearers to be as agile as possible. Light on their feet - almost like a stealthy ninja sneaking up on a hapless victim.

The result is beautifully crafted and sexy football boot, built for players with quick feet; always on their toes and waiting to burst past opponents into those little pockets of space.

Copa Mundials

Proper boots for proper players

Kangaroo leather make these boots both lightweight and durable for a glove-like fit.
Full fold over tongue gives a better strike area 
Dual-density outsole - for lightweight cushioning and strategic support
Soft synthetic lining provides good comfort
Short moulded studs provide unbeatable traction and grip whilst running about
Classic retro design
Affordable
Only available in one colour/design

The most classic, beautifully crafted football boot ever made. Simple. 

The Copa Mundial might not be as flashy, as showy, as garish as many of the other football boots on the market in the modern day, but it does its job as well as any, and it does it while being comfortable, durable and wonderfully old school. 

If you're a no nonsense type of player, you need a no nonsense boot. Simple, slick and enduringly cool.
