In need of some new studs seeing as my Magistas have split. Most of my choices are ‘retro’ apart from one pair which are blackouts. The T90 lasers are only £40 brand new which is what is tempting me. The predator powerswerves are £90 brand new and then the new blackout preds are £100

    Always go for the preds. Wore my predator X’s today when I went and practiced. Going to cop the 18s soon enough.

    I’m leaning towards the preds at the moment, but £40 for the T90 lasers is nothing

    The problem with older Preds is the soleplate always separates from the shoe (for me at least). I would be worried about that considering the fact that they are now 10 years old...

    You buying boots by the looks of them? Buy the ones that feels best when you put them on.

    Yeah I have had that issue. My X’s are 8 years old almost but still in decent shape.

    The preds are top choice. Although I used the total 90s back in my playing days since they are kind of wide, good boot aswell.

    I've got the T90 III Elite so I say those. So, so comfortable and I feel really accurate with them.

    Modern boots are hideous. Predator Mania was where it peaked

    Those all blacks are beautiful.
    The 2nd pair is ugly imo

    Predators have already been my favourite boot of choose. T90's didn't feel anywhere near as comfy as the power swerves, and it felt like the 90 patch sometimes hindered the contact with the ball.

    So I’ve already got a toots blackout kit in the house and the guys from toots got back in touch and said it’ll work on the T90 lasers other than the rubber ‘strike zone’.

    For half the price I think I have to go for the 90’s and the fact I’ll be able to black them out anyway

    Saw retro boots thread and thought of Puma Kings. The fact that 2008 boots are considered retro is very scary.

    It’s all relative, if you start going back further than that the price tag becomes ridiculous. So I’ve settled for a happy medium. Old but not too expensive

    For a good reason. Absolutely can’t stand playing in them. I’ve had a pair before and probably the most uncomfortable boot I’ve worn. Could feel the studs poke through the insole and generally a lot of pressure going through the studs. Don’t get me wrong they’re beautiful but I found them very uncomfortable. Copa’s on the other hand are aright
