Best cheap football boots
Spending over €200 on one pair of football boots is not for everyone. Not all of us have top ambitions; for us, players of the local divisions and Sunday leagues, there will definitely be cheaper, reliable boots that will last and get us comfortably and safely to the final whistle for the end of the game.
Unfortunately, companies repeatedly show us that the quality of their cheaper football boots falls significantly short of the most expensive versions. When testing two different (cheaper and top) versions of the same model of soccer cleats, we often find that they have nothing in common.
That's why we decided to test cheaper versions of well-known models for you to help you choose a pair of boots that won''t ruin you financially and help you with your performance.
1) adidas COPA Sense.3
First, we also have the cheapest football boots from the entire list. COPA Sense.3 were comfortable from the first wear, the toe area is nicely padded and fits the foot. The front is covered with soft calfskin to help you with the feel of the ball. In addition, the sole and studs have the same layout as their most expensive version. You can't really go wrong with the adidas COPA Sense.3 if you're looking for boots from the cheapest price range.
2) Nike Premier III
From the first look, it is clear that the Nike Premier III is inspired by the boots of the past, and it's the only full-leather pair in our list. With that being said, you're getting incredible value for money in a pair of Nike Premier III. For less than €110, you can have high-quality kangaroo leather boots, which are hard to find in other pairs in the same price range. The leather also guarantees amazing comfort and a great touch. If you're looking for a full leather football boot that has similar materials and technology to elite models but costs half the price, the Nike Premier III might be for you.
3) adidas Predator Edge.2
The adidas Predator Edge.2 soccer cleats are excellent proof that the cheaper versions of the most expensive models are not always significantly worse. Their Zone Skin rubber contact zones are made from the same material as their more expensive siblings. Although they are not as big and prominent, they do the job almost identically. In addition, their upper is slightly thinner and more flexible, which many players may appreciate as an advantage rather than a negative. After all, if you've always wanted to try what it's like to have Predators, but you don't want to spend €280 for the highest version, the adidas Predator Edge.2 is probably what you're looking for.
4) Puma Ultra Pro
The cheaper version of the Ultra model did not receive such a big downgrade as it is customary for speed shoes. Ultra-lightweight construction with less weight than elite models from adidas and Nike, excellent stud traction, and material very similar to the most expensive version, Puma Ultra Ultimate. If you want to increase your speed to the maximum and save money at the same time, Puma Ultra Pro is a no-brainer.
5) Puma Future 2.4
Last on our list we have the Puma Future 2.3, a model worn by the Brazilian phenomenon, Neymar. For almost €70 less, you get football boots that are almost indistinguishable from the most expensive version. Yes, you won't find all the technology included in the best version, but they are still incredibly comfortable, the touch on the ball is excellent and the knitted material in the instep area wraps around the foot nicely and feels premium, something we wouldn't expect from a boot in a cheaper price point. Overall, these are a great pair of boots that will definitely make you feel like you're playing in the elite versions for a lot more money.
Choosing cheaper football boots can be tricky, so we hope this overview of our most popular lower versions has helped you in your purchase. Have you picked some already?
