Women’s Soccer Preview: Find The Perfect Cleat

Eastbay Women's Soccer

With spring soccer season right around the corner, it’s time to get new cleats. Let’s break down some of this season’s hottest options to help you start the year off right.

Leading this year’s fast break is the Nike Tiempo Legend VI. This boot is designed from the ground up for one thing: domination. It is constructed out of Kangaroo leather with All Conditions Control tech to ensure that you get elite touch and control in any weather. But the truly game-changing feature is the new internal midfoot cage, which helps maintain the cleat’s shape for unparalleled support and stability.

However, this year, Nike’s entire lineup of women’s soccer boots is making waves. The Mercurial, Magista, and Hypervenom all give you different ways to dominate.

The Nike Mercurial Veloce 2 is built for the speedy forward with its direct inject TPU studs for explosive traction in all directions. It also has a seamless upper to keep things lightweight and comfortable.

If you are more of a creator who makes plays with your passing and your shooting, the Nike Magista Opus might be more your style. A compressed nylon and Pebax® plate works naturally with your foot while added mesh on the upper keeps things breathable.

Finally, if you want to be that elite goal scorer, nothing tops the Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2. The upper consists of a Dynamic Fit collar and Flywire cables for a premium fit while a molded sockliner reduces stud pressure for incredible comfort. The cleats truly are a throne worthy of the best scorers on the pitch.

Eastbay Women's adidas Soccer

This year’s best soccer cleats don’t stop at Nike though. Adidas has come out on attack this year with the X and the Ace models.
The X is aptly named. It’s made for the X factors: the women who tilt the momentum the second they step on the field. Its Techfit collar provides flexible ankle support and a sock-like fit. The boot’s triangular studs are placed so you can change directions on a dime without a loss in speed.

Is fit and feel number one on your checklist? Then the adidas Ace 16.1 Primemesh is what you need. A completely new Primemesh vamp material hugs the mid and forefoot areas for unmatched fit that’ll last all game long.

Eastbay Women's Puma Soccer

Finally, let’s focus on speed. Game-breaking, jaw-dropping SPEED. That’s what the PUMA EvoSPEED offers. Conical and bladed studs give you terrific traction while a Pebax® Speedtrack spine gives you the mind-blowing explosiveness to leave your opponents, records, doubters — you name it — in the dust.

And that’s just cleats! From tanks to hoodies to anything else, you can get the gear you need to match your new cleat or favorite color only at eastbay.com.
