So, looking to pick up a new pair of football boots for the upcoming season. In the past I've stuck to Adipures because I'm a fan of the k-leather, but looking possibly branch out just to shake things up. Generally play on the wings, and wanting to get a feel of what the general opinion is of people on the board.

What football boots do you prefer and why? What do they offer your game that you don't get with other options? Pics too are welcome.

These: http://www.shoebuy.com/diadora-lx-k-.../313409/669837

I'm also a fan of kangaroo leather. Since I'm just a rec player, I can't justify spending big $$$s and these do the trick. Diadoras also tend to fit on the wide side.

Apparently, though, the company was sold not too long ago. Not sure what impact that will have on their product, if any.

Best k-leather I ever used were Umbro Speciali, in the classic black style not the fancy new ones.

Had a pair of these in high school. Loved them.

I bought a pair of the f50 adizeros about a month and a half ago, but I'm going to sell them. They're great shoes - running in them is pretty awesome. Impossibly light. But when it comes to actually playing, they're just not enough boot for me. Too much of a good thing, you know? I'm going to wear my f50is the rest of the season and then probably go back to adipures.

I like the predators from a couple years ago, new ones are good too but don't look as nice. Adipure's are nice, I wear them on turf (I play college ball) but the heel takes some getting used to. The newer Puma's (speed model, maybe some other) are very light, give a good touch, and look sleek as hell. Unfortunately, they fit very narrow. I'm a regular width and they were painfully tight.

When I played when I was younger I wore Puma Kings, but I have no idea what's out there these days.

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
