Are Adidas leading the field for football boots?

By: Mark Moon

The name Adidas has become synonymous with football itself, with many famous world class football players such as David Beckham and Steven Gerrard wearing the boots on the pitch. But are Adidas really amongst the best football boots available and, if so, why?

Adidas is a German company that was originally set up by Adi Dassler to make sport shoes after Dassler's return from the First World War. Adi originally made the shoes in his mother's kitchen! In 1924 his brother, Rudi Dassler, joined the company. However, the partnership didn't last long and the two brothers decided to go their own ways in 1948. Adi continued to develop Adidas and Rudi went on to create Puma. The fact that both of these brands are still market leaders today is a sure sign of the innovative techniques developed by both brothers and the quality of the shoes. Since this time, Adidas has specialized more and more on the manufacture of football boots and other football equipment.

Currently Adidas have three main types of football boots on the market and with all three offering their own special features; it would be difficult to decide which is the best.

One of the best football boots that Adidas offers is the Predator PowerSwerve boot. This football boot has many features, including the Dymanic Powerpulse system. The Powerpulse system has a special shifting weight placed near the toe of the boot, which adds extra power when a player kicks the ball. These boots are also made from a special 'smart' soft, inner layer that adds precision and power to kicks. They are specially crafted to add stability, balance and performance, are extremely flexible and fit the foot perfectly.

The Pure range is also extremely popular. Although not as laden with technology as the Predator PowerSwerve boots, these provide players with a natural feeling football boot. In many ways the Pure range are classic football boots with excellent craftsmanship and heightened performance on the pitch. All of the Pure range are handmade and based upon a traditional classic boot. However they also have a second skin and are made from extremely flexible leather that gives the wearer extra power and ball control.

Finally there is the Tunit Pro boot, or to give it its full name, the Adidas +50 F50.8 Tunit Pro Football Boots. This boot allows you as the player to choose the features that are most valuable to you and gives you the ultimate in performance and endurance. You can choose how you want the elements of your boot to look, feel and perform, including the sockliner, the chassis, the upper sole and the studs themselves. Each boot is anatomically designed to fit your foot perfectly and moulded for advanced sensitivity. Finally you can decide upon the cosmetic look of your boot, such as the colour, so that they look good too!

Adidas has a reputation for making some of the best football boots on the market, making them the manufacturer of choice for many international players. They make exceptional quality boots suitable for everyone, not just top players like Beckham and Gerrard. If you are an advanced player then you may need the heightened performance of the Predator boot. If you are more of a classic player then you may want to consider the Pure boot model. Or, if you're feeling really extravagant, you may want to create your own perfect boot from the Tunit range. No matter what you are looking for in a football boot, Adidas is likely to have a boot that fits your feet and your needs perfectly.
