Being the leading goal scorer in Europe is not an easy feat to achieve. With so many top clubs across the continent, competition to take the Golden Boot title is highly competitive. Each year, the European Sports media recognizes the top scorer on a weighted league system, where a player in a higher profile league can win even if they score fewer goals than a weaker league.

Fresh off the announcement that Lionel Messi picked up his second consecutive European Golden Boot (or shoe) award (and third in 4 seasons), we take a look at the boots that helped him get there, as well as the past 10 winners.
