As we hurtle head long in to another decade in the midst of the most exciting Premier League title race for a few years and with a keen sense of anticipation for next summer’s events in South Africa, Footy Boots has decided to take stock and look back at the past 10 years, and in particular, to our ‘top twenty football boots of the decade’.
From next Tuesday and throughout the Festive period, we’ll list our particular favourites, culminating in the top 5 which we will reveal on New Years Day.
Before that though, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get your choices as well (as it has been know for visitors to this site to venture an opinion or two!) There are some ground rules though.
The boots must have been released between 2000 and 2009, you can choose a maximum of 4 boots from your favourite brand and 3 from all others. And you can only select 1 boot from any range. So, sending us a list which includes the adiPure I, II and III or five different colourways of the Vapor IV just won’t cut it.
If you pick the adiPure I, then you can’t also choose the II or III
As well as listing your top 20 please also tell us why you think they qualify. What is it about them that makes them stand out from the rest and get your vote?
You need to get your selections to us before close of play on Monday 21st and we’ll then put up our choices of boots 20 – 16 on Tuesday 22nd. On Xmas Day and Boxing Day it’ll be numbers 15 – 11, then 10 – 6 on Tuesday 29th December, culminating with 5 – 1 on the first day of the New Year.
We look forward to seeing what football boots you come up with, if any trends start to appear and of course, how your selections compare with our own.
