    adidas predator - i think you can get the cheapest version for around 40 pounds on sale adidas predators really rock, the rubber patch on the boot makes swerving freekicks much better, as shown by beckham

    however if there are none for sale get the nike zoom60

    To get 'good' boots, leather ones, you need to pay a little more unfortunately. You'll probably be able to find a pair in a sale though

    How much are the nike zoom60s? I don't want to spend too much cos it's from my student loan. The boots won't be cheaper if you are size 5, will they?

    Try eBay, cheap and cheerful or what!?

    Probably the Total 90s or the Mercurial Vapors (Ronaldo has them in blue)...

    If you want cheap, Umbro it is...

    go to a sports shop preferably a big one, check out the cheap version of 'adidas predator', i think there might be some for sale.

    lol yea mercurial vapor is very cool but i advise you not to wear it unless you are a striker, it is very small and uncomfortable for me, not ideal for tackling..etc

    I play midfield, sometimes striker, so I guess not the mercurial vapour then.

    Plus they'd probably trample on your budget, I'd go for the Total 90s if you could. Worn by Totti, Roberto Carlos, Henry (or does Henry wear Mercurial...)...

    Don't know how much the high street would have them for, best to look.

    When you get home with your new boots, put them on in a bath full of water. They will fit much better as they'll mould to your feet. Clean your boots after every play, and use dubbin' after as well.

    Dubbin' is some special wax for football boots. You can find tins of it in sports shops, near the football boots.
