Best Quarterbacks Wear

Quarterbacks are blowing up the league right now with impeccable throws, super-human speed and gutsy performances. For a while, the best QB's in the world were a tall, immobile bunch, but the NFL right now is a mixed bag of height, speed, strength and accuracy. Check out What the 10 Best Quarterbacks in the NFL are Wearing Right Now.

Cam Newton Under Armour Cleat from SportsUnlimited.com

No. 10 - Cam Newton

Cleat: Under Armour Cam Highlight
Key Stats:  577 Passing Yards, 6 TDs, 2 INTs, 1 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

Cam Newton sports his signature Under Armour cleats, but rotates between the high cut ankle support and the low cut editions of the shoe. Either way, Cam is a beast.

Colin Kaepernick Nike Vapor Talon Elite ¾

No. 9 - Colin Kaepernick 

Cleat: Nike Vapor Talon Elite 3/4
Key Stats:  689 Passing Yards, 3 TDs, 4 INTs, 0 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

It doesn't look like Colin is wearing Dolphin colored cleats on the field.  These 49ers themed Vapor Talon Elites are cut 3/4 high for protection, but Kaep looks mighty fast in them regardless.

Matt Ryan Nike Alpha Pro TD Football Cleats

No. 8 - Matt Ryan - Nike Alpha Pro TD 

Cleat: Nike Alpha Pro TD
Key Stats:  909 Passing Yards, 6 TDs, 2 INTs, 0 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

This is the point at which Nike starts to dominate the field.  Matt Ryan, a traditional pocket passer utilizes the Nike Alpha Pro.

Andrew Luck Nike Alpha Pro TD Football Cleats

No. 7 - Andrew Luck

Cleat: Nike Alpha Pro TD
Key Stats:  658 Passing Yards, 3 TDs, 1 INTs, 2 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

Would you look at that?  Andrew Luck sports the same cleats as Matt Ryan.  Luck is a fantastic pocket passer, but unlike Ryan, he also possesses the ability to scoot.

Joe Flacco - Nike Lunar Super Bad D X

No. 6 - Joe Flacco

Cleat: Nike Lunar Super Bad D
Key Stats:  744 Passing Yards, 3 TDs, 2 INTs, 0 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

Joe Flacco is the epitome of the tall, immobile QB of the past few decades.  He rocks the Ravens colored Super Bads.

$95

Russell Wilson Nike Lunar Superbad Pro TD

No. 5 - Russell Wilson

Cleat: Nike Lunar Super Bad Pro D
Key Stats:  644 Passing Yards, 6 TDs, 2 INTs, 0 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

Interestingly, Russell Wilson, who can scamper to first downs all day and make pinpoint throws wears the same cleat as Joe Flacco.  Two very different style quarterbacks using the same shoe!? What!

 Drew Brees Nike Lunar Superbad Pro D

No. 4 - Drew Brees

Cleat: Nike Lunar Super Bad Pro TD

Key Stats:  1021 Passing Yards, 6 TDs, 4 INTs, 1 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

Here we go again.  Same shoe as Flacco and Wilson, but I don't think that wearing the same cleats as the other two makes the three equal. Brees is on another level, just with the same shoes.

Tom Brady Customer Under Armour Cleat

No. 3 - Tom Brady

Cleat: Under Armour Cleat
Key Stats: 698 Passing Yards, 5 TDs, 2 INTs, 0 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

Tom Brady is a partial owner of Under Armour and is also endorsed by them. Can I endorse myself?  Well these cleats aren't available to the public and Touchdown Tommy does a nice job of wrapping the heck out of them, but don't those toes look nice?

Aaron Rodgers - Nike Zoom Alpha Talon

No. 2 - Aaron Rodgers

Cleat: Nike Zoom Alpha Talon
Key Stats: 1057 Passing Yards, 8 TDs, 3 INTs, 0 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

Whoa. Hot dog, those Zoom Alpha Talons look wicked.

$190 (Discontinued, but this is the successor...)

Peyton Manning - Reebok Zig Blaze Mid SD4

No. 1 - Peyton Manning 

Cleat: Reebok Zig Blaze Mid SD4
Key Stats: 1143 Passing Yards, 12 TDs, 0 INTs, 0 Rushing TDs (through 4 games)

And we come to the fastest (er...slowest) QB in the league.  The sole Reebok user on this list, Manning could throw for 400 yards barefoot, but if he loves the Reebok Zigs, I trust him. (You're going to have to look very hard to find them). Do you see a whole lot of difference between the styles of quarterbacks and their football cleats? Nah.
