Top 5 Black Football Boots For Kids

It’s back to school time so we’ve chosen the best black football boots for school at the lowest prices.

Top 5 Black Football Boots For Kids

Most school uniform policies dictate that football boots must be black. Many kids love brightly coloured boots, so black wouldn’t usually be a natural choice, but all brands now produce some very cool blackout styles so black definitely doesn’t have to mean dull.

So let’s start our rundown of the best black football boots for kids:

5. adidas X 18.3

The adidas X 18.3 black football boot is designed for kids who are strikers or wingers who need to move fast and finish well. This blackout version is a great option for kids looking for a cool black football boot and parents who don’t want to shell out for highly technical features.

These firm ground blackout boots look good and won't break the bank.

The adidas X features a low-cut silhouette with a unique shape that holds the foot in place for great stability and support throughout a match.

The adidas X 18.3 is available in UK junior sizes 10-5.5 (kids with larger feet will need to upgrade to the adult adidas X 18.3).

4. Nike Tiempo Legend VII

The Nike Tiempo was launched at the 1994 USA World Cup and has been an ever-popular boot for defenders since then. Built for comfort, this classic all black kids football boot is fully cushioned and the leather upper allows for great contact on the ball. This all black Tiempo is a slick, clean boot that will be both comfortable to wear and stylish to be seen in.

The Nike Tiempo offers a more traditional boot silhouette, so for kids that aren’t fans of a sock boot, this is a great option. Available in sizes from a tiny junior UK 9.5 - 5.5, the Nike Tiempo gives a good range of sizes for most ages in this black colourway. Kids larger than a 5.5 will need to size up to the adult black Nike Tiempo.

The kids Nike Tiempo is also available in black with orange accents for more flexible uniform policies.

2. adidas Predator 18.1

You can’t go wrong with the adidas Predator. The Pred is the most popular and long-standing of all adidas’ football boots for kids. This all black version features an integrated sock and is perfect for midfielders and those looking to nail the perfect pass.

The black adidas Predator 18.1 is available in in junior UK sizes 10-5.5 (kids above a 5.5 will need to go for the adult Predator)

For those looking for a cheaper alternative, the adidas Predator is also available in black for kids in an 18.3 version which offers the same great look but less technical advancements making them much kinder on the pocket.

As well as the all black version, the Predator is available in two brand new black colourways: all black with the adidas stripes outlined in white or a black and red version that harks back to the original Pred colourway. This could be a great option for those kids at schools with a slightly more relaxed uniform policy.

The most technically advanced version, the adidas Predator 18+, is a laceless football boot in black and the only laceless boot on our list. If you can stomach the hefty price tag, you’ll be rewarded with a technically advanced boot that supports the foot despite the lack of laces which can only be a win for kids who are too busy on the pitch to be bothered with laces.

Who wears the adidas Predator?

The adidas Predator is worn on the pitch by the likes of Paul Pogba, Mesut Ozil, Ivan Rakitic and Dele Alli.
