Ballin’ On a Budget II: The Best Cheap Football Boots for Under £50

Cheap Football Boots 2014

It’s the start of a brand new season, and what better way to kick things off than with a new pair of football boots?

After a summer packed full of mind-blowing releases, there’s bargains to be had if you don’t mind getting the ball rolling in an older colourway or model.

The last time we went Ballin’ On a Budget, we scoured the marketplace for top-tier releases for under £60.

But this time out, we’re after cheap football boots – and that means we’re hunting for the best bargains under £50.

Normally, this would be a challenge, but have an almost-unbelievable 33% off sale boots, and you won’t believe what boots can be had for as much as £100 off the RRP.

As always, the following stipulations to get listed in Ballin’ on a Budget apply:

– Must be under £50
– Be a top-level ‘statement’ boot
– Have some decent sizes left in stock

Let’s Go!

 – PUMA evoSPEED 1 – White / Red / Limoges: £32.15 

Puma evoSPEED 1 - White - Limoges - Ribbon Red

Launched in time for Euro 2012, the evoSPEED 1 might seem old hat with the new evoSPEED 1.3 hot off the release list, but the OG version still packs DuoFlex tech in the soleplate and EverFit cage.

– Umbro Geometra Pro – White / Brilliant Blue: £32.15

Umbro Geometra - White / Blue

In many ways the perfect control boot, the Umbro Geomtra was one of our favourite releases of 2012, with a K-Leather upper and tactile pass and receive zones.

– adidas f50 adizero miCoach – Black / Lab Lime / Metallic Silver: £37.51

F50 adiZero - Black / Lab Lime / Metallic Silver

A favourite colourway of Gareth Bale in his last season with Tottenham Hotspur, the leather version of this cleat is a definite favourite with f50 fans.

– Warrior Skreamer K-Lite – Black / Spicy Orange: £37.51

Another player-favourite, the K-Lite version of the Warrior Skreamer was preferred by Manchester City signing Fernando in his time with FC Porto – and with a Carbon Fibre soleplate and K-Leather upper, why wouldn’t it be?

– PUMA evoSPEED 1K – Jasmine Green / Blue: £40.19

As above, but in a newer colourway and boasting a K-Leather upper. What’s not to love?

– Nike Tiempo Legend IV – Clash Collection: £42.87

Nike Tiempo Legend IV - Clash Collection - Ballin on a budgetOnly a couple of what we would call decent sizes left, but we had to make an exception for these as they’re a stone-cold classic. Honestly, we’ve seen them go for more than this on eBay.

– Warrior Gambler K-Lite  – Black / Mean Green: £43.84

Warrior Gambler K-Lite Pair

One of the most straight-up overlooked releases of Warrior’s line-up, the Gambler K-Lite is mean, moody and packs a K-Leather forefoot with mesh-based rear quarter for a level of control that’s downright nasty.

– PUMA King – Blazing Yellow / White: £46.89

Puma King - 2013 model - Yellow / Black / White

Still in use by many players right now, the current version of PUMA’s legendary King was debuted by Yaya Toure back at the start of 2013 in this colourway.

– PUMA King – White / Ribbon Red – £48.89

Puma King - White / Red / Black

Same boot, different colourway and a whole lot more sizes, this edition of the King was released in Bayern’s colours for Dante to wear in the 2013 Champions League final.

– PUMA PowerCat 1 Black / Flue Yellow: £50.24

Puma PowerCat 1 - Black / Yellow

One of the last PowerCat colourways, this was also debuted in the 2013 Champions League final on the feet of Marco Reus. Packed with tech and with a top-tier leather upper, these are no antique – making them well-worth going 24p over budget for.

Big Ballin’: Three Bonus Boots for under £75

If you’ve got some scratch, these are three boots still in use by top-flight footballers right now, making them just straight-up bargains for anyone looking for a new pair.

– Nike Tiempo Legend IV – Sand / Atomic Orange: £66.99

Nike Tiempo Legend V

– Nike Hypervenom Phantom – Hi-Vis: £66.99 (also available in SG)

Nike Hi Vis Pack Hypervenom Phantom
