We often get asked what are the best sock football boots? And what is the difference between football boots with socks (mid cut boots) and the low cut football boots?
The revolutionary sock football sock boot design started with Nike Magista obra. The aim was to give the boot a sock like fit, to remove distractions for players. This style then rolled out to the Superfly and the Hypervenom Phantom and has been popular.
In all honesty the biggest difference between the dynamic fit collars and low cut boots is the feel when you are wearing the boots. The one-piece knitted sock which integrates with the tongue has a seamless transition from ankle to lower foot, which connects the lower leg to the lower foot.
Sock football boots are a little like Marmite, you either love them or hate them. We love them and here are the best football boots with a sock on the market.
