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
One of the most recent green pairs from adidas are their Speedportal boots, a stunning release that stood out on pitch despite the class with the grass.
Green Nike Pairs
The last leathered Tiempo Legend provides a greenish volt colourway before the silo’s exit from K-leather. It’s probably one of the lightest boot in terms of the green shade, almost bordering yellow.
Created for the 2022 Women’s European Championships in England, the Bonded pack, were a very subtle green with brighter colours on top.
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.
