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.
