Its hard to choose, but my favourites have been...

Predators - Blades (ok, a bit gimmicky but good boots)
Puma Kings - Studs (Love the softness of the leather)
Adidas World cups - Moulds (there is no better)

Dont like Nike as I find the shape a bit narrow and wierd.

Recently the Adidas F50. Light, comfortable, great boot. Classically, the Adidas World Cup. Brilliant boot. I also like the Umbro Speciali. Light, and kangaroo leather.

I have Vapors as of now, Just ordered XAI's.

The Vapors are good boots once you get past the Blisters and pain of breaking them in. I had manias last year and I was not too impressed. Another thing about vapors, ocassionally , as the boots are getting old, The ball will glance off of them quite strange. I was considering the new AZT90 III but then I saw the HUGE 90 Plastered on the side and that really turned me off of them.

I've got Vapours and Manias.

I like both, but as premleague said, Vapours are a pain to break in. They're quite comfy though and are extremely light-weight. I'm also very pleased with my Manias as they are a reliable boot, which have caused me no problems whatsoever.

In conclusion: Vapours and Manias are good.

So good they named him twice. Augustine 'Jay-Jay' Okocha is considered to be one of the most skilled players that the English Premier League has to offer. With his dazzling tricks, blazing speed, and rocket of a shot, he is a deadly presence on the pitch. Captaining both club and country by his "lead by example" type of play, any club would be more than eager to sign the Nigerian wizard.

Preadtors. For the simple fact that they look good, and are very comfortable and light on my feet.

It doesn't hurt that such great players like Zidane and Kaka wear it. Btw, who else wears them besides Beckham and Raul too? I could have sworn that Aimar and Vicente wear them too.

Gerrraaaaaaaaaaaaard! Stevie G wears them. Vieria used to, not sure if he still does. Oh, and Ballack, he's decent and he wears them. Now if we're talking about the Adidas F50 as well, there's loads of decent players...Kewell, Cisse...

Well put, but Adidas still never forgets to put him in their adverts for the F50

Definately not Liverpool. But Gerrard is a fantastic player, one of my favourites, so I had to list him. Although I can understand how you could see me being a Liverpool fan from that...seeing as how when the next Premiership season starts 3 of the 4 people I listed in that post will be with Liverpool.

the XAI III's? i have a pair of the XAI III KTK FG [fark.. could they have any more letters as a part of the name?] - they're sooo comfy, even without an extra insole (which i was accustomed to playing with).. they arent so much a power or pace - styled boot, but they're fantastic for ball control.

extra cleaning and shining is mandatory.. or maybe thats just because where im playing its pretty hot and dry at the moment.. great boot.. pity there's no colour other than the black/white combo. or at least when i bought them.

currently i have the nike air zoom total 90II their pretty good all round boots.

i tried the adidas pulsa their really good at freekicks and passing when i wore my mates during a game, i curved the ball in from a cornor, curved the ball around the keeper just passed halfway line(iam not sure if its the design of the boots or the name of the boot and who wears them(becks,zidane etc) that gives me comfindace or somthing)

i also like the mericial vapors, they look great and light.(never tried them thou).

Well I guess I wll be happy with mine. I have a pair of vapors but I did order some XAI's or XAI III KTK FG...I agree too many leters.... Glad to hear that they are comfy, Vapors are hell to break in.....The only have the Black and white ones now, but they have a new version of the boot, the MO 10 I believe

Eh? Do you not mind the big ass "90" that covers about...90% of the boot? hahaha...can you do the elastico well in them? Ronaldinho wears them and does it a lot, and when I've tried to do that with Predators, it hasn't come off quiet as well as thinner boots, like Nike. Of course, I'm not (quiet) Ronnie. Yet.
