Girls Football Boots

On this page we offer you the best Nike & adidas boots on the market and rank the top 10 girls boots right now, scroll down for that. For girls boots you have two options; the Pro boots that are almost exact replicas of the adult versions worn by Professional players, only smaller and the cheaper lower level academy and club variations, that look the same but have less technology. Both can be good choices depending on the age & skill of your child.

What You’ll Find On This Page:

Girl’s feet grow very fast and they also change shape of time, they can grow at a rate of about 2-3 sizes per year. It is really important to know the size of their foot to make sure that they are wearing the right shoe size, so check our size guide, but also realise they may not wear these boots for long until they need a larger size.

Junior sizes run from 1 to 13.5 and are the same for girls as boys, then adult sizing is from around 3.5 to 5.5 for up to around a ten year old, when you may need to switch to adult size boots.

Girls can be sure to fit in with the junior boots as they are made unisex. Just like the boys, they are also still developing physically, which is a consideration taken when brands make their football boots for children, you can be assured that these boots would accommodate your girl’s feet nicely.

Nike Girls’ Boots:

Scroll down for cheaper Nike boots, which are their Academy and Club offerings. Nike children boots are categorized into Younger Kids (10.5C-3Y) and Older Kids (3.5Y-7Y), both of which are not available in the Pro takedown.

The Elite children’s boots are made for older kids and not all colourways are available, usually you’ll just find the ones worn by the biggest names on pitch make it to the Jr. models.

What are the adidas Boots for Girls?

adidas offer both laceless and laced kids options, with children’s ersions that include a lot of the adult aspects, there are no female specific options at this time, they’re all designed as unisex, with the brand having done some specific pushes around the Predator for women’s feet.

Girls boots are designed to provide ultimate protection, stability and flexibility without compromising speed, agility and acceleration. On this page we’ve tried to create a list of the highest quality girls football boots on the market today, read below for our top ten…

Top 10 Boots For Girls

1. Nike Jr. Superfly 9 Pro

The close fit of the Mercurial favours the generally narrow width of girls’ feet. But those that quite wide can still benefit from the Nike speed boot as it is now more forgiving. Superfly Pro is the most premium Swoosh choice at the moment, with the boot including a Nike-first laceless closure from crisscrossing straps.

2. Nike Jr. Vapor 15 Academy

You can get a cheaper Mercurial alternative with the Vapor 15 Academy. Lowered collar with a multisurface tooling for an efficient speed boot option.

3. Puma Youth Ultra Pro

Premium high-cut Puma girls boot that serves as a nice prelude to the women-specific Ultra Ultimate

4. adidas Kids X Speedflow+

On top of being laceless, the adidas x has that slim shape and tight fit like any modern speed boot. Comfort is also top-notch especially once broken in.

5. adidas Kids X Speedflow.1

If you want more lockdown added to the boot experience of the Speedportal+, best to opt for the laced equivalent.

6. Nike Jr. Phantom GT Academy

Your choice of a boot to get some assistance from a textured upper in practising your ball control in dribbles, passes, and first touch.

7. Nike Jr. Tiempo Legend Academy

Budget-friendly option for a leathered girls football boot. Simulates well what to expect from the Elite-level Tiempo down the line.

8. Puma Youth Future Z 2.4

Arguably most comfortable on the list; supple forefoot with varying densities, textures, and patterns assisting a variety of function, while the knitted Fuzionfit+ accommodates a range of width; soleplate narrowed down for a more accurate girls’ feet sizing.

9. adidas Kids Copa Sense.1

Laceless variant only available in the takedown .3 level. Better to revert to the kid-specific Copa Sense.1, so the young one can have a highly-functional leather (albeit having less amount of that material) boot.

10. adidas Kids Predator Edge+

Reasons to get this  for a young girl football player: Laceless closure, grippy Zoneskin, Primeknit. Be sure to test it out though as the Predator might come in a bit of width.

Are Girls and Boys Boots Different?

Not at this age. When you get to adult men’s and women’s boots, there are differences between them due to the shape of ladies’ feet. But the differences are considerably less noticable at this age, so you can just look for the size boots and colours your player wants and you’ll have a pair of boots that will work for her.

The feet of the younger generation are growing at a rapid rate, but they often want to lace-up in a pair of boots modelled on the same designs as the world class professionals within the game such as Sam Mewis, Pernille Harder, and Crystal Dunn. For those who follow the men’s leagues, check out our players page, to see the latest boots being worn by the world’s best male players.

Girls Football Boots and Women Soccer

Women Soccer is now on the rise as evident in the growing popularity of the Women World Cup plus the social media following and boot sponsorship of some of the top women footballers. Young aspiring girl players have some household names to look up to as well as some football boots to look forward to wearing. Alex Morgan, who starred in USWNT’s World Cup triumphs, wears the Nike Phantom GT. Sam Kerr joins CR7 and Kylian Mbappe in wearing their exclusive Mercurial Dream Speed series. For those who idolise Vivianne Miedema, the deadly striker from the Netherlands, they could check if the adidas X Ghosted can be their boot of choice, just like hers. Another women footballer to have a boot sponsorship is Rose Lavelle, wearing the Tekela boots provided by New Balance

*ENGLAND WINS EURO 2022, FIRST-EVER MAJOR WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE*

Closer to home, our very own Lionesses can help inspire growth of women’s football at a young age with all the scintillating display and celebratory scenes of their Euro 2022 Championship win. The victory in the finals capped off an amazing run in the tournament that included a Euro-record 22 goals scored and just two conceded, an 8-0 drubbing of Norway and a 4-0 win over Sweden. Young girls have the England’s women’s team to look up to as they start to lace up their favourite football boots, most likely influenced by their own idols.

IDA Sports Championing Women-specific Football Boots

With the exception of the Puma Ultra Ultimate, popular football boots are based on men’s sizing, leading players of the opposite sex to the adjustment with their choices (usually sizing down to fit their feet’s narrower frame). Nike, in particular, labels the box of its pairs with the men’s size and the equivalent in women’s. There were attempts from adidas, but those releases were limited and far in-between.

Fortunately, there are organisations now that are covering this gap in the market. IDA Sports, an Australia-based company co-founded by Laura Youngson and Ben Sandhu, focuses on developing football boots for women. The rationale is simple: there are anatomical differences and subjective preferences between a male and a female. Acknowledging that they can’t accommodate all types of women’s foot shapes and sizes, they are proud of the fact that if their football boots fit well, the nuances of the female athlete’s foot are also taken care of (e.g. adjusting the toe box to accommodate the toe nails).
