my brother bought a pair of literally neon green ones today😷
To stand out.
When I played I usually wore black puma kings. Simple & understated.
They look ridiculous. It's time black boots came back. World Cups are good.
Not just the colour but design as well, there's been an emphasis on boots built for speed like the Mercurial Vapor but these are awful imo. Nike discontinued the Total 90s and Adidas just discontinued Predators. A real shame.
Power boots > speed boots.
Sooo true. The quality and design of boots has been getting worse since around 2010. The last few predator designs were really bad anyway, i miss the old ones.
It's because the main football boot designers in recent years are all gay.
Best football boots - and always will be - are the black World Cups/Copa Mundials.
Marketing, and because of Premier League players wearing them. Lucio and SR90 make valid points.
They look really hideous.
Because who spends more money on football boots? Adults who want something normal or Adults with children who are amazed by all the colours? Its all business my friend.
I spend ages looking for a decent pair of boots. I really hate the bright colours and patterns, I'd just like a normal pair of boots in black or something.
My friends don't seem to have this issue, they love the bright boots. One even has a pair that looks like ****ing leopard print boots.
Its an issue as when I do find a decent pair they only go up to size 10 or something like that, when for football boots I have to go for size 13 (Size 12 shoes).
