2009 vs 2019 Football Boots - Total 90, Predator, Mercurial & More

Tuesday, 22 January 2019
Some days ago, we compared today's football kits with the football kits of 10 years ago, inspired by the #10yearschallenge. Now German football boot influencer @fabianpecherhas shared the evolution of four football boot silos from 2009 until 2019, including the iconic Adidas Predator and Nike Mercurial.

Football boots have changed a lot over the past 10 years, especially with the introduction of the Dynamic Fit collar & knitted materials (Flyknit) in 2014 by Nike. However, now both Adidas' and Nike's boots have take the different direction, featuring elements of the classic boots - the Predator comes with special grip pad elements and the Phantom VNM is even inspired by the classic Total 90.
