Where would soccer be without all the dangerous, hardworking, creative, energetic wingers of the world? Yes – wingers are the most important players on the pitch. Ok, so I might be a bit biased on this since I was a winger through my career, but as fans we live for the excitement a winger can provide when taking on defenders down the line and swinging balls into the box. It is an important job and one that can earn you a reputation as being a generous teammate.
Here, we take a look at the 10 best wingers currently playing and the boots they have on their feet. Note that we considered real wingers on this, and not players who primarily play up top. You might notice a common theme with the boots on the list (one pair shows up on 6 of the 10 players) but there is a twist at the end! This is What the 10 Best Wingers Wear and Why.
