Green Boots

Dean Ariola

Green equals style. It’s a simple equation really. As a base tone, green gives a boot energy and life. When used as an accent, it gives it a snarl! Being one of the most natural colours, green lends itself to a nice balance between style and self-expression. While not as loud as some of the other tones, green still makes a statement, but does so with class.

If the pitch isn’t too muddy and still has some grass, then perhaps you’ll get a camouflage effect with your green boots disappearing before the eyes of the opposition?! Perhaps not..

adidas Green Boots

Generation Predator 2024

One green option around March 2024, which also happened to be a limited edition pair, was the adidas Generation Predator 2024. It had leopard spots-like design and some pink-to-purple striping, but for the most part it was green. adidas designed the boot to be striking and bold for its upcoming Predator stars.

Game Data X Speedportal

adidas introduced the X Speedportal at the beginning of 2022/23 season, and debuted it with a green colourway under the Game Data Pack. It was a stunning release as far as green boots were concerned, standing out on pitch despite the clash with the grass.

 

Green Nike Pairs

Emerald Tiempo Legend X

Don’t miss this chance to acquire a pair of celebratory boots! This Tiempo Legend’s emerald colourway is a direct observation of the silo’s 30th anniversary. The embossed quilts flowing throughout the upper represents the continuous evolution of the Tiempo from a pure natural leather boot to a technologically-packed football boot.

Phantom Luna/GX 2 Vortex Pack

Nike debuted the second generation of the Phantom siblings, Luna and GX, with an oceanic green colourway. Especially on the dark shaded quarter, the Vortex Phantom Luna/GX 2 displays a foamish graphic that alludes to water splashes in the middle of a storm. The idea of getting sucked into a vortex represents how the Gripknit technology intends to provide that additional split-second ball grip with your touches. 

Puma Green Options

To end the 2022/23 season, Puma dropped the Future and Ultra with predominantly green colourways, alternating the primary and accent colours between the boots.

The Future in this pack took on the yellowish volt green as its base colour, while the minty, peppermint tone got assigned to the Puma speed boot.

This boot was part of the Highlight pack released in early 2015 for players who had advanced to the quarterfinals of that season’s Champions League.
