    Hello guys and gals,

    Since we are such fanatics of soccer boots, it would interesting to see how many pairs of boots we own and what selection criteria we use to buy and of course use/wear them.

    Personally I have 8 pairs at the moment having given away 2 pairs to a young friend of mine.

    Anyway, I choose boots in order of comfort, colorway(superficial and proves that marketing works-i am such a sucker...) and brands. There are just brands that I trust like Adidas, puma nike and I havet yet ventured out beyond those yet although I did own a umbro pair when I was a kid.

    What are your selection criteria?

    I also dont wear all of them. In fact there are a couple that havent seen the light of day or touched a blade of grass since I bought them.....just cant bring myself to wearing them for a wife thinks i am mad....

    Do you wear all you boots?

    Best three pairs
    1) Adidas absolutes white/gold
    2) Nike Air Legends Ronaldinho White/gold
    3) Puma King Execs White/grey/blue :rolleyes:

    How many pairs do I have?



    Hopefully two by next summer. Planning to get the new Vapors after the World Cup campaign. Hoping to build my own collection of high-end boots.

    When I was 8 years old, I had, and I still have!:

    -2 pairs of Mizuno boots.

    Then, I started playing football again when I was a bit older and I bought:

    -Some rubbish Nike Tiempos
    -Rubbish Total 90 II's
    -Rubbish Nike Ultracell Vapor

    And in the year 2002 or the WC02, I bought my first pair of expensive boots:

    -Adidas Predator Mania Champagne SG

    And then when I started reading these forums and going on holidaty more regularly, I went beserk!:

    -Nike Mercurial Vapor I Chrome FG
    -Nike Tiempo Mystic FG
    -Adidas F50+Punjab FG
    -Nike AZT 90 III Gold/White FG
    -Fake Copa Mundials
    -German Copa Mundials
    -Puma KSL's Gold SG
    -Nike Mercurial Ultra Vapor Turf
    -Nike Airmax Total 90 365

    And on the 6th of January my uncle in London is bringing me my:

    -Nike Mist Blue Mercurial Vapor FG

    That is 16 pairs of boots, 7 of which don't fit me.

    Here is my website with SOME of them:

    I have:

    Predator Mania blue FG
    Predator Mania blue SG
    Predator Pulse Dragon FG
    Predator Pulse blue a3
    Predator Absolute black FG
    F50+ Goal
    F50+ Sun FG
    F50+ airforce blue FG
    Nike AZT3 id FG
    Nike AZT2 id FG
    Nomis Glove all-black FG

    So that's 11 pairs. I wear the F50+, the rest are for collecting. I have just bought the Glove in black because I am keen on trying the wet control technology boots.

    Yeah it's a bit too many in general, so I may sell some boots later... maybe the blue Manias!

    Pulse (indigo & silver) SG
    Pulse (gunmetal) FG
    F50 (silver & black) FG
    Nike T90 II TF

    Ive had about 10 pairs of puma kings that i grew out of. Ive had every predator since the accelerator. Two pairs of vapors.

    I currently have 6 pairs of boots, 3 of which are ruined. (Im an idiot).

    -Predator Absolute black FG
    -Predator Mania blue SG
    -Valsport Era red SG

    Ruined boots

    -X-Boot white FG ( Got a hole in the toe so I tried to black them out and and are now half grey and half white/red
    -World Cup (Brand new but too big, bought them off my mate for £15! Instead of selling them took the stripes off and they looked really cool, until I got carried away and tried to take the white on the heel, which had foam inside so now they are unplayable.)
    -Predator Pulse Beckham SG (Too small so I cut the tongue off them, baforehand I had already cut the tongue slightly. They now sit in my room somewhere).
