Updated on November 29, 2015

World Cup

There are many cleats being used in the Women's World Cup. The U.S. has many cleats alone, but the most popular is the Nike Laser III FG. Among the wearers of these are star goalkeeper Hope Solo and young striker Alex Morgan. Another favorite of the World Cup is the Nike Mercurial Vapor FG. These cleats dominate the market, much like their sister shoe for the men. If you are not a big fan of Puma, many players, including several Brazilians, have been using the Puma V1.11 Fg.

Olympics

The cleat of choice for most Olympic soccer players appears to be the Adidas F50 Adizero. Similar to the Nike Mercurial Vapor in its sleek design and leather outside, this cleat is made to go fast and strike strong. The studs will keep you comfortable through the entire game, while still having great grip. The inside of the cleat is well cushioned, given the fact that this is one of the lightest cleats on the market. You cannot go wrong with this cleat, and that's why so many Olympians are using them.

Two cleats that will almost always get the job done are the Mercurial Vapor VI and VII and the F50 Adizero. The Vapors will both be a wise choice. One of the lightest cleats out there, the vapor will feel like you are not wearing a cleat at all.
