These 10 Boots Sold Out the Fastest in 2016
To celebrate the new year, a very interesting statistic emerged detailing the football boots that sold out the fastest on the popular online store that is Pro-Direct.
Although the list is dominated by limited-edition drops, as expected, a couple of regular releases squeezed their way into the Top 10. A sign of the brand's return to strength, both the Red Limit launch colorway of the Ace 17+ and the Dark Space rendition of its predecessor entered the list for Adidas. But let's dive right into it.
10: Nike Premier Blackout
Released in the last month of the year, the blackout Nike Premier enjoyed great popularity, in part due to its very fair price tag.
9: Adidas Gloro 15.1 Blackout
All black, this Gloro 15.1 is perhaps something of a surprise entry in this list - perhaps it can be explained by this particular silhouette's relative scarce availability elsewhere.
8: Adidas Ace 17+ PureControl Red Limit
The Boost-powered second-generation Adidas Ace 17+ was among the ten fastest selling boots and that without being limited in any form. Quite the achievement.
7: Adidas Gloro 15.1 - Black / Red
Interestingly, a very similar boot will release very soon in the form of the Copa Gloro 17.2, so be quick if you want to get them.
6: Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl Dark Space
Once more proving that the brands can't really go wrong with black boots, the Dark Space Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl was the sixth fastest boot to sell out in 2016.
5: Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl Space Craft
Limited to 1,500 pairs, the Space Craft Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl is still the only of its kind to feature a (partial) leather upper. Its wild combo of gold and black wasn't meant for everyone, but it didn't stop it from finishing on a strong fifth place here.
4: Nike Tiempo Legend VI Pirlo
Another limited edition, Nike honored legendary midfield maestro Andrea Pirlo with his very own colorway of the Tiempo Legend. Limited to 3,000 pairs.
3: Adidas 99g
A throwback to the 2013 concept and 2015 release, the 2016 Adidas 99g boots were launched as part of the brand's Limited Collection.
2: Nike Mercurial Superfly V EA Sports
This eye-catching collaboration between sports brand and video game was limited to 1,500 pairs.
1: Nike What The Mercurial
Combining no less than 16 iconic Mercurial colorways into one, the "What the Mercurial" was limited to 3,000 pairs and sold out within a matter of minutes.
