Who Has the Best World Cup Cleat?

From Nike’s neon boots to Puma’s mismatched shoes, rate the best footwear options at the 2014 World Cup.


Adidas announced it has created special cleats to celebrate Argentinian soccer player Lionel Messi’s birthday today. For his part, the 27-year-old soccer star is scheduled to wear the rainbow-colored boots at training today ahead of his team’s final group game against Nigeria on Wednesday.

While much has been made about the ever-growing goal count in the first-round matches, the cleats sending those balls to back of the nets have become a focal point, too.

From Nike’s neon Hypervenom boots to Puma’s mismatched Tricks pair, vote for your favorite design in FN’s World Cup poll, and share your pick with @FootwearNews on Twitter.
