    Just for a laugh I thought I'd ask what were or are your favourite football boots when I first started playing I had the usual timpson top dogs or winfield wonders ( Woolworth ) stop laughing! Then when I got a bit older and didnt want me mates taking the piss when I sheepishly got them out of me bag lol I got bought a pair of Patrick Lima they were black with the two white stripes now I thought I was rivellino when I put these on ( played like ravioli) then straight to dixon sports to get the aluminium screw ins coz they made more noise when you walked on concrete etc and used to clean them all the time and rubbed dubbin in them to keep them supple and stuffed them with paper ,personal choice but I can't stand all these new coloured boots I think they should be black and that's that !

    I always wore rugby boots, dunno what brand they were. I wore them for three reasons:

    1 - I spent a lot of time in goal for my club, and they gave you a **** load of power through goal kicks

    2 - The extra pair of studs gave better grip on the waterlogged welsh pitches

    3 - they were so heavy duty I never came out of a challenge worse off

    Well always played Gaelic footy and the standard all round boots for Gaelic were Puma Kings. Always had a pair of Puma kings right up to only a few years back. Need to get back playing again

    I'm afraid I wasn't privileged enough to own decent football boots as a kid, so I was stuck with the horrible Gola and Umbro cheapies from JJB. Woefully ill-fitting, terribly designed, no wonder everyone thought I was s*** <whistle>

    By the time I was 16 I was earning, so I bought myself some flashy gold nike astro-turf boots which didn't really elevate my standards to the highs I imagined, but it made me feel like a world beater putting them on. Ended up using them as pretty decently viable curling boots, and won a local comp with them on...

    Having to wear cheap Golas could put children off football. Can remember the blisters I used to get on my feet with them

    I had some flash looking diadora boots. Black with uv yellow trim. Pity my skills were less flash. I made shola look like roberto baggio.
