by Armando Perez – It’s a special time of year. The days are shorter, the air is cooler, and with all that’s going on – the football is ferocious.

The leaves have changed and fallen, leaving nature’s bounty a little darker, often brown, with some oranges and yellows to the occasional silvery white. Trampling over wintery fields worldwide, we look at 4 fantastic and colorful cleats by adidas and Nike that will put you in the holiday spirit while raising your game to new heights.

4 Football Boots that will get you Ready for Christmas

adidas F50 adiZero FG (Running White/Rich Blue/Neon Green)

Being the boot of choice of world soccer’s biggest star has already made the F50 a huge world-renowned boot!

This version of the F50 has been updated for 2014 with Speedtraxion studs and Speedfoil heel.

Nike Mercurial Vapor X CR (Black/White/Hyper Turquoise)

As bold as Cristiano Ronaldo, this CR7 version of the Vapor has bold white CR7 logo on the inside back heel, a large white Swoosh on the front of the cleat and pops of blue on the studs. Innovation for speed and ball touch at high speeds.

adidas F50 adizero Crazylight (Neon Orange/Black/Neon Green)

The lightest soccer shoe on the field – adidas Crazy Light weighs an incredible 4.7 ounces.

The first rendition of the 135 gram f50 adiZero Crazylight was given a limited release back in March, with Gareth Bale the only player who officially wore the boot on pitch.  The Crazylight is the most complete boot that you will find at such a weight. As adidas were venturing into new territory in creating such a light-weight boot, the boundaries of innovation had to be pushed and new materials and technologies had to be used.
