What boots should a right winger like myself use?

I don't know if I should use the Vapors, 90's or the Predators for next season. Could anyone help me out here and give a good explanation for your choice.

Cheers.

I don't think brand means anything as long as they are comfortable and let you do what you need to do. I know it's hard to test boots in a store though.. :undecide:

La Juve? Lasciamo perdere.

Really all boots these days are good
But Vapours are what most top wingers/forwards wear as they are light and designed for speed

Anyway Its whats in the boot that counts mate

Actually, I'm either going to buy the Predators or the F50's. Anyone want to help my decision to pick between these two easier?

Errrrr what kind of player are you? I would get F50's if I was flashier, like Harry Kewell, pacier, and Predator's if I was more like Beckham.

I'm definately a flashy type of player who uses his pace and dribbling to get past his defender, plus I use alot of cuts on my defender.

F50's you say? how are the Vapors and 90's?

The predators are great , they are light and take no time at all to break in- it almost feels like your not even wearing shoes!!

FORZA ITALIA !!!!

For a winger you want the lightest boot.

F50 and The Vapour are your best choice.

The F50 or F30 are cheaper so i'd go with them.

the vapors aren't for wingers i'll tell you that right now.

There is no way you will find comfort in those if your game consists of running. Vapors are designed for short sprints, not long runs. Because the surface of the vapors have no shock obsorbing design, crossing the ball too much will eventually cause your legs to overwork, in result of fatigue.

They are definately designed to dash and sprint, the simple design makes it a good shooting boot too.
but i'm afraid as wingers, you'd want the adidas.

I have vapors and predators, and i enjoy dribbling, shooting, and sprinting a lot more in my vapors, but when it comes to crossing the ball and running a long distance, i would take the predators. I've never worn the F50's, so i can't help you with those.

it also depends on whether or not your feet are narrow or wide. my feet are wide so i went with the preds, not the new ones but the previous ones worn by Zidane and Kaka
