No. 16 – UA Hydrastrike II
Highlight: A futuristic H2Oi Water Intelligence Technology upper matched with a Sleek Stud Configuration.
A surprise addition to the top 25? Some might think so, but these boots have a lot going for them and might be one of the more underappreciated boots currently on the market. Other than the fact that they are one of the most comfortable fitting boots on the market, they also feature an exclusive moisture-shedding H2Oi K-Leather upper that offers bone-dry touch, precision, and power on the ball. When water contacts the surface of the boot, it immediately seems to dissipate. And then there is the CoreSpeed soleplate that is designed to enhances the foot’s natural ability to accelerate from a planted position, in any direction. Trust me when I tell you that it all combines to work effectively on the pitch – this could be the game changer for the UA brand in the soccer market.
