Have you ever made a trip to the shoe store to buy a pair of boots but returned empty handed because you didn’t know what your favorite Premier League player wore? Have you ever watched players flop to the ground after a tackle and think to yourself, “Man, I would never fall down if I had those boots on”? Are you just looking for cleats that are comfortable to play in and that would grant you Messi’s touch, Ronaldo’s close control and Rooney’s Suarez’s finishing? No? Well, read on anyway to see what boots your favourite EPL players have been scoring in this season.
CTR360 – With a whopping 48 players using this pair of boots (including 4 each from Sunderland, Norwich, Southampton and Stoke), the CTR360 is the most popular pair of boots currently in the EPL. Standout performers include Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kyle Walker.
Hypervenom – Although worn only by 16 players in the league this past season, the Hypervenom is a star favourite with United’s Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck prominently part of Team Hypervenom.
Mercurial Vapor – Eden Hazard, Theo Walcott and Raheem Sterling are the pick of the 18 Premier League players who wear this Nike pair every matchday.
Tiempo – Nike continues it’s dominance with one of it’s most popular boots, the Tiempo. Thirty-nine EPL stars, including 4 each from Chelsea, Fulham and Tottenham starting elevens and 5 from Crystal Palace’s gives this Nike attempt a strong London connection. Notable stars include rival full-backs Patrice Evra and Branislav Ivanovic.
Adidas F50 – Adidas’ most popular option, the F50 is the striking choice for both Roberto Soldado and Robin van Persie. A bit of a bad patch in front of goal this season, but it is also a full-back’s favorite; Jose Enrique, Danny Rose and the talented Luke Shaw all prefer the F50 to it’s competitors.
Adidas Predator – The boot of choice for prominent playmakers in the EPL, the Predator is worn and the dancing feet of City’s David Silva and the slightly-less-dancing feet of Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard and also stellar performers like Luis Suarez, Mezut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Juan Mata and Oscar. With 29 wearers in the league, it is one of the more popular boot choices out there currently. A playmaker’s favorite.
EvoSPEED – A striker’s favourite, the EvoSpeed adorns the feet of three of the deadliest attackers from last season: Sergio Aguero, Olivier Giroud and Adam Lallana.
A relatively new player in the market, most notably with the Gambler range, Warrior has wasted no time picking up the best talent from the Premier League including Vincent Kompany, Maroune Fellaini, Tom Ince, Jonas Gutierrez, Kolo Toure and the now retired Craig Bellamy.
