The Best Football Boots For Midfielders 2019

This post was originally created on 20th September 2018, and has since been updated to include all the latest boots for 2019.

The ability to thread the ball through the eye of a needle is something every player craves.

There’s just nothing more devastating than a talented central midfielder who can instinctively play that killer pass. They see things no one else can, quietly conducting the play and then opening up the opposition with a swift through-ball. No matter what level you play at, in every great side you’ll find at least one midfield maestro who fancies themselves as the next Paul Scholes.

But, of course, they need the right tools at their disposal. These are the top football boots for midfielders in 2019, with modern tech giving you greater control and accuracy than ever before.

Nike PhantomVSN

Nike’s latest silo was first introduced just before the start of the 2018/19 season. Sporting a slick platinum colourway and boasting some of the most innovative boot tech you’re likely to see, the Nike PhantomVSN has been a massive hit with central midfielders.

An internal Quadfit Mesh conforms to the shape of the wearer’s foot, giving them much more flexibility out on the football pitch and ultimately allowing them to feel more comfortable. The boots also feature a Ghost Lace System to provide a smooth striking surface, while the Flyknit upper is enhanced to provide greater control of the ball.

In short, this is a football boot built for ultimate levels of comfort and control. And top midfielders love it.

Brought back to life towards the end of 2017, the Predator silo returned amidst a whirlwind of hype and expectation. Fortunately, the latest generation has more than lived up to it. Featuring all manner of innovative boot tech, as well as the ridges that made the original designs so popular, the Predator 19+ is seen by many as the ultimate midfield weapon.

A Primeknit Sockfit collar, Purecut laceless upper and stable Controlframe all combine to create a comfortable, devastating football boot; while the stunning range of new colourways gives you plenty of designs to choose from.

Featuring Nike’s 360-degree Flyknit upper and the ground-breaking All Conditions Control technology, this is the perfect football boot for creative midfielders that love to get themselves forward.
