Nike Tiempo Legend 9 Elite

Comfortable, versatile and stylish

Colourways: Black/Iron Grey/Black, Team Red/Mystic Hibiscus/Bright Crimson/White, Grey Fog/Sapphire/Volt, Black/Anthracite/Metallic Gold/Metallic Dark Grey, Guava Ice/Sunset Glow/Yellow Strike | Studs: Firm ground, soft ground, multiground, artificial grass, indoor, turf | As worn by: Virgil van Dijk, Thibaut Courtois, Harry Kane

Versatile: worn by goalkeepers and strikers alike
Great for wide feet

While the latest Tiempos are not only among the lightest on the market, weighing in at only 207g, but they're also the most comfortable - as we noted in our Nike Tiempo Legend 9 review. Unlike most other pairs of Nike soccer cleats (such as the Vapour and Superfly ranges), the Tiempo Legend 9 don't squeeze your feet in too snugly – they're roomier and more breathable from the very first try. 

These Tiempos feature a number of other nifty little gadgets, including memory foam and touch pods, designed to specifically help players shoot, dribble and control the ball. The chevron studs have been specially designed to add traction, helping you change direction more easily – perfect for bursting past opponents. 

This is a stunning all-round cleat, but a particularly good option if comfort is your ultimate criteria.  

Puma Future Z Lazertouch

Puma Future Z Lazertouch

Proper leather... but still light

Colourways: Black/White/Gold | Studs: Firm ground, multiground, artificial ground, soft ground, turf | As worn by: Neymar

Extremely light
Classic design

In our recent Puma Future Z Lazertouch soccer cleats review, we praised the authentic leather used in cleats worn by some of the nippiest wingers in world football. Unlike synthetic or plastic cleats (such as Neymar's signature Future Z), the soft leather used in the Lazertouch makes them a better choice for those with wider feet. 

The cleats are a fantastic fit, offer superb traction, look stunning and are light enough to make you feel as if you're wearing carpet slippers. The best combination of style and comfort on the market right now. 

Adidas Copa Sense+

Minimal, comfortable and built for playmakers

Old-school design
Good for touch and passing

Adidas do "no-frills" awesomely well when they want to and, as explained in our Adidas Copa Sense review, these puppies are testament to that. Worn by the likes of Jude Bellingham and Joao Felix, the Copa Sense is a defined understatement, stripping back the soccer cleat to its bare essentials. These cleats are immensely comfortable, perfect for any player who prides themselves on their first touch and despite the simplistic design, they look hella cool – whatever colour you get them in.

Adidas Copa Mundial

Adidas Copa Mundial

The definitive Adi cleat

Utterly timeless
Cheaper than most
Comfort over style

One for the old guard and hipsters alike, there's simply nothing like the Copa Mundial soccer cleats, no matter how many times Adidas reinvent the wheel. 

For the sheer comfort, nostalgia and reliability, it's virtually impossible to top these brilliant cleats with buttery soft K-leather ensuring your feet have room to breathe while staying warm and dry. The Adidas Copa Mundial is an icon – and if you're a soccer nerd, you deserve a pair of these at least once in your lifetime.

How we test soccer cleats

Here at FourFourTwo, our cleat testing procedure is all about getting cleats on our feet and personally trying them out in kickabouts, training sessions and matches. Our writers test each pair over a number of weeks, in various playing conditions, in order to get a proper idea of what they're like on a soccer pitch. 

This is the best way to find out if cleats are better suited for firmer or softer ground, what level of traction they offer and how else they're geared towards improving a player's game. We're passionate about soccer cleats and regularly attend launch events and Q&As to get as much information as possible from manufacturers and designers before we begin. 

All of our reviews are honest (despite working with brands, nobody can "buy" a good review from us) and we always have real soccer players in mind when giving recommendations.
