Soccer shoes aren't just an fundamental piece of equipment for world-class soccer stars and amateur players alike, but they're also a fashion statement. Players from global superstars to Cristiano Ronaldo down to recreational intramural players covet cleats that manage to blend high performance, comfort and eye-catching style.

Modern soccer shoe manufacturers spend a great deal of time and effort into researching and developing these kicks. Often times, shoes are developed in collaboration with superstar soccer players. This has resulted in a wide array of soccer shoes on the market that vary in performance attributes as well as style quotient.
