Have you ever had that moment on a football pitch when you've had to stop because your laces are undone? Laceless boots have solved that problem and, in the process, have become an increasingly popular choice for players. You'll see more of your favourite players up and down the leagues wearing them.

It's not a style adopted by every brand. Still, Adidas is leading the way in amplifying the trend - which is why all the selections below are from that company. If the shoe fits and you prefer to ditch laces in favour of a pair of easy slip-on shoes, laceless boots may be the answer for you.

What's the difference between laceless football boots and laced football boots?

The obvious difference is that laceless football boots don't have a lace fastening on the shoe, which means no more laces coming undone whilst you're on the pitch. This means that the very construction of the football boot is designed not to be reliant on laces to fasten and lock you into the boot.

What are the benefits of laceless football boots?

The main benefit of laceless football boots is that you no longer have to worry about tying the shoes to your foot or the laces becoming loose. Laceless boots wrap around your foot and are built to easily slip in and out of - making your life easier. They also have a comfort advantage as they give a more sock-like fit around the foot.
