The seven most iconic football boots of all time

A popular topic of discussion amongst football fans is the greatest boots of all time.

Nike, Adidas and Puma have blessed us with some glorious collections down the years, such as the Total 90, Predator and King.

Choosing a favourite all comes down to taste. If you were a midfield maestro in your youth and grew up idolising David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane, chances are you wore the Adidas Predator.

If you were a quick and skilful striker who loved beating opponents and scoring goals, then the Nike Mercurial Vapor was for you.

And if you were a tough-tackling, no-nonsense centre-back who wasn't bothered about being colourful or flash, the Adidas Copa Mundial was perfect.

Boots like the Mercurial Vapor and Puma King remain very popular years after they first came out, while others like the F50 have unfortunately been discontinued.

And so, to celebrate decades of iconic football boots, we've ranked the top seven of all time.
