Golden Boot / Shoe Award of FIFA World Cup : Previous Winners (1930 to 2018)

Every year after the FIFA Football World Cup gets over, the Golden Boot or Golden Shoe Award also known as Golden Boot Award is given to the top goalscorer during the tournament.

Those who finish as runners-up in the vote receive the Silver Shoe and Bronze Shoe awards as the second and third most.

Formally the award was first given in 1982 under the name Golden Shoe and then in 2010 it was rechristened to Golden Boot Award.

Prior to that the winners were announced as Top goalscorer, Runners-up goalscorer and Third Place goalscorer from the first FIFA World Cup which took place in Uruguay in 1930.
