Best Laceless Football Boots
Laceless designs are not a new fad in football boots. The first laceless boot was produced by Lotto in 2006, and other brands have released their own models since then. Laceless boot technology has been improving gradually over the years. Now days, some laceless boots even rival their laced competitors. So In this list, we’ll go through the best laceless football boots of 2022.
There are a few advantages that laceless boots can offer you as a player. They have less bulk in the tongue and mid-foot area, which provides you a cleaner striking zone. Laced boots still have a slight edge regarding lockdown, but laceless technology is improving in this area. Below are the best laceless boots that are available in 2022.
- Adidas X Speedflow +
- New Balance Tekela V3 Pro
- Adidas Predator Edge +
- Lotto Solista 100 IV Gravity
- Adidas Predator Freak +
Adidas X Speedflow +
The Adidas X Speedflow+ is likely the best laceless boot on the market. This is because it’s built on the frame of one of the best speed boots currently available in the X Speedflow. Similar to its laced counterpart, the X Speedflow+ is extremely lightweight and comfortable. Be sure to check out the new Adidas X Speedportal for the latest update in Nike’s laceless lineup.
Instead of the lacing system across the tongue, Adidas has implemented a flexible primeknit collar. This material provides surprisingly good lockdown despite being non-adjustable. In addition to the laceless system, you also get great features like the carbitex sole plate and aggressive stud pattern.
New Balance Tekela V3 Pro
New Balance may be a relatively new player in the world of football. However, they have been expanding their model lines and making some great boots recently. The Tekela V3 has a bold design that has most of the features people look for in top end boots.
New Balance’s Hypoknit upper provides both stretch and support where you need it. The upper is also textured to provide better grip on the ball while playing. The outsole is nylon which helps reduce weight, making this another true speed boot. New Balance’s laceless closure on the Tekela V3 is also tight enough to keep the boot both responsive and comfortable.
Adidas Predator Edge +
Adidas has carefully worked to expand laceless technology across their product line. They have executed this design exceptionally well in the case of the Predator Edge+. The removal of the lacing system means that you have more surface area for the perfect strike.
The Zone Skin upper provides ribbed sections that help optimize swerve, power, and control while playing. A weighted power facet in the outsole’s forefoot helps add strength to your strikes. Similar to other Adidas models, a soft Primeknit collar wraps around the heel to provide solid lockdown.
Lotto Solista 100 IV Gravity
Although not the biggest brand in modern football, Lotto certainly holds a strong legacy. After all, they are responsible for creating the first laceless boot over a decade ago. The Solista 100 helps to carry that legacy into 2022. The one piece 3D upper fits like a glove and provides impressive responsiveness and comfort.
The Solista 100 is also one of the lightest boots on this list, making it a great choice for those who want a minimalist feel. The conical studs on the sole plate provide ample traction, helping you stay in control on the field. Whether you opt for this version or the laced model, the Solista is definitely a top tier football boot.
Adidas Predator Freak +
Adidas made some waves after releasing the laceless Predator Freak+. That’s mostly due to the inclusion of a massive heal liner at the back of the boot. Whether you love or hate the design, Adidas has certainly gone all out on this laceless variation. Compared to the laced version, they have added additional Demonskin spikes to the tongue. This gives you an ever larger control area on the boot.
The Primeknit upper hugs your foot tight and gives you great lockdown while sprinting. Demonskin spikes help give you additional traction when shooting, passing, and dribbling the ball. If you’re already a fan of the Adidas’ Predator line, the Freak+ is definitely a step forward from an innovation perspective.
