It’s that time of year again, where we celebrate the best of the best in the annual Football Boot Awards. Football Boot Awards 2011

Football Boots Awards

Now into it’s 6th year, the Football Boot Awards have become the hallmark for fans to let the industry known what they want from a football boot.

Celebrating award-winning design and ground-breaking innovation, the Football Boot Awards are the only event of their type, where all the voting is handled by the people who matter – the fans.

Broken down into five categories, here’s how each of your votes will count:

Football Boot of the Year

The Big One. The biggest boot releases of the last 12 months go head-to-head for your votes.

It’s the most coveted award of its type within the football industry and your vote could be the difference between an underdog victory, or one of the big guns claiming the crown. No pressure!

Best Looking Football Boots of the Year

Bold designs have become a hallmark of the modern football boot.

Brands vie for attention on the feet of professionals as fiercely as they do on store shelves – the Best Looking Football Boots of the Year award is a tip of our (undoubtedly extravagant) hat to the boots that push the boundaries of good looks, and – in some cases – good taste!

    why is the maestri not nominated for anything…
    and why is the adipower and powercat (which isn’t even released yet) nominated for everything?

  2. says: CBell

    Like other comments here, I’m also confused as to why the Maestri 2 wasn’t nominated for anything, and the Powercat 1.12 was nominated for everything when most people probably haven’t even had the chance to wear it yet. It would probably more appropriate to nominate the Powercat for these awards next year. Even the name of the boot indicates this.
