Over the years I had Adidas, the George Best Stylo Matchmakers and Puma, along with a few that were, shall we say "Steptoe" boots.

 

My favourites and by far the most comfortable were a pair of Puma Pele Rio.  The Puma stripe was in yellow, so they looked different from previous Puma boots.

 

What I can't understand these days is why any player wears boot with "blades" instead of studs. It always seems to me the reason why so many players slip and fall. ( e.g. the famous Gerrard incident)!

Back in 1960, my boots had Stanley Mathews written on them.

All time favourites were my adipower Predators

 

Also was quite loyal to a specific Diadora franchise in my late teens, but I can’t remember the name.

Mine too. Always wanted a pair when I was younger but couldn't afford them. Mrs bought me some last year for my 54th birthday. They're still in the box. Loved Puma Spa King as well and the Patrick Kevin Keegans were nice as well.

Think the ones Shirty has on in the picture are called World Cup 78. The Adidas on the tongue was blue.

Loved Adidas World Cup. Liked Puma King but they were too narrow a fit for me.

 

All time favourites were Patrick Cordoba. First pair of boots I had made from kangaroo skin. They were like slippers!

My lad was mascot this season. After the match, one of the players handed him his boots, and even signed the soles. My lad was well chuffed, so this has to be my favourite pair, on sentiment alone.

Adidas Profi. Cost me 50 quid back in 1984 which was a lot of money for me then, but they were so comfortable, worth every penny.
