Demosphere Picks: Best Cleats

Demosphere picks is our series where we ask our staff of parents, athletes, coaches, and sports enthusiasts their favorite choices for things like best snacks or equipment.

Our team has chosen the best cleats for athletes in all sports considering ball control and functionality, running, and comfort. 

Nike Mercurial Vapor R9 – Gold

These were super light when running on the pitch and because these were the signature boot to have at the time since it was Ronaldo Nazario’s line. – Jesus De Santiago, Customer Success Manager

Nike Zoom Vapor Carbon Fly Wire

Nike stopped making them a while ago even though they were super popular. These cleats were the best in every way: light, comfortable, functional, and looked cool. Thinking about them brings back great memories of playing youth lacrosse and football. – Brandon Shure, Sales Associate

Nike Air Zoom Total 90 II

They were my go-to favorites back in the day. Incredibly comfortable and allowed for incredible control of the ball. – Tim Larocca, Customer Success Manager


Demosphere is here to help make your next season a breeze with a system that has all the tools and features you need, designed for parents, players, coaches, officials, and admins – all under one login. Let’s talk!
