    I just bought some new boots, the F30i's, and they are bladed boots. Now I've never had blades before so I thought I'd give them a go.

    Although now that I've actually bought them I'm worried I won't perform as well in them compared to studs. Is there much difference between the two?

    I play centre mid btw.

    For a second I thought that said "Blades vs Spuds". What do you peel potatoes with? A fork?

    I liked the grip of studs better but its been years since I've used football boots at all and I only tried on a mates bladed boots once and nearly fell on my bum.

    I always had studs until my latest boots (which I bought a few months ago). I can feel the difference. I'm not playing as well. :nopity: I shall switch back to studs soon. :yep:

    i think blades are dangerous, not because they hurt the opposition but because they break the bones in your feet. if your foot gets stuck in the mud with ur body weight behind it, a boot with studs will give whereas a bladed boot will hold in the mud. its one of the reasons why so many players break the small bones in their feet now (not the only reason but a contributin one). i say studs all the way

    Good point, some sports doctors attribute the blades to the increase in broken foot bones injuries. Perfect example Wayne Rooney's injury against Chelsea before the WC 2006.
    Plus they say the modern boot is more thinner/flimsy in comparison to the traditional heavier leather boot so less protection for the wearer which i think is right. Ever had a 15st Centre back step on your foot on a rainy cold day? Ouch!

    I thought blades contributed more to serious knee injuries due to your feet getting caught and twisting your knee. I thought the flimsyness of boots was what contributed to the increase in bones in footballers feet breaking.

    I've worn blades for ages and not had any problems. I've got a pair of Studs for when the ground is really soft as well but my main boots are firm ground Predators and they are almost perfection.

    Yeah, this is what I was told. Although...I still wear boots which have blades and are flimsy! This will change when I can afford new boots lol
