This World Cup in Russia turned out to be very entertaining and rich in surprises. We will not touch on football battles, although there is a lot to discuss, but we will follow the theme of our site – to review equipment. More precisely, today we want to draw your attention to the best boots of the 2018 World Cup, which we see on the productive players of this championship.
We have compiled our own TOP, which includes 8 pairs of boots from different manufacturers. The order in the TOP determines the number of goals scored by a particular model. We believe this is a fair decision, since now many people play in the best models and it is somehow difficult to single out a pair, so we will judge by the number of goals that were scored in them. Fortunately, modern statistics allow you to track such moments.
# 1: Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Elite
If we consider the most popular boots of the 2018 World Cup, then this model is most often found on the feet of today’s top football players. It is logical to assume that the most goals were scored in this model, which is also evidenced by statistics.
Read an overview of the boots here (the first in the list).
We have counted approximately 30 footballers in these boots that we are following closely. From the Russian national team, we note Denis Cheryshev and Artem Dziuba, who managed to excel in these nikes more than once. Also, we can not fail to note Coutinho, who scored several goals against his rivals.
# 2: Nike Mercurial Superfly VI Elite
These are Cristiano Ronaldo’s boots. You can no longer write anything further. We think you saw what he did in them, starting from the first match. However, we saw this model on Mbappa, and Ahmed Musa managed to distinguish himself several times in them. Less popular boots in this championship from Nike, but they deserve the second place.

# 3: Nike Hypervenom Phantom III
And again Nike. The TOP-3 was taken by one brand, which does not even seem strange, given the activity that the company has been showing lately.
Read an overview of this model at this link. Most recent on the list.
Let’s define who excelled in these boots: Manzhukic, Gary Kane, John Stones – and these are just those whom we managed to notice.
# 4: Adidas X 18+
Finally, a brand change. It’s time to give way to the Germans, especially since this model came out very successful for them, although there is another novelty that will be in this TOP, but unfortunately, it will take only the last line. Okay, let’s talk about those X’s that were on the feet of Mohamed Salah and Suarez. Accordingly, they all scored goals in them. Adidas has other footballers on the contract, but they somehow looked pale, and I don’t want to mention them.
# 5: Nike Magista Opus II
Bright boots that we personally don’t like very much, but still some contract players ran and even scored in them. The number of goals allowed this model to break into the fifth line and all thanks to the efforts of Zanka, Erickson and hedgehog with them.
# 6: Adidas Predator 18.1
Again in the ranks of Adidaski, although not with the latest model, but with an excellent release in 2018, which aims to restore a collection of “predators” that has become a thing of the past.
For an overview of the boots, see here.
The closer to the end of the TOP, the less well-known representatives wear these models and the more they hammer in them. These boots were chosen by second-tier players, so to speak. Their names and surnames will only be known to true football fans, and most of them do not even know about them. Juan Cuadrado, Jedinac Mile, Nacho Fernandez are big names, but not everyone knows. At least you will know what boots they run in.
# 7: Puma One
Considering the boots of the 2018 World Cup, we are very pleased to see this model in our TOP. The latest novelties from Puma, frankly, are very good for us. They also entered players such as Romelu Lukaku and Sergio Aguero. In them, they already managed to sign at the rivals’ goal, and Lukaku did it already 4 times. By the way, both footballers, and all other little-known players, play at the championship in the FRENZY PACK color scheme, which was released specifically for this event.
# 8: Adidas X 18.1
Here is the last representative of our TOP. We like this model as cute as possible, as well as Di Marie and Kagawa.

This is where we will end. We hope that the 2018 FIFA Boot you chose matched your opinion. If this did not happen, welcome to the comments – we will discuss everything in a text and friendly format.
