Modern or classic football boots?

As football boots become more sophisticated, brightly coloured and technologically advanced, many players have begun endorsing and creating their own designs (a prime example being Cristiano Ronaldo and his CTR7 range for Nike). The sheer amount of choice that football boot manufacturers offer in the modern age of football is enough to leave buyers with a confusing headache after asking themselves… “Do I choose modern or classic boots?”, the UK’s leading online sports retailer asked the public which type of football boots they preferred- the brand new modern technology with the ability to read your skills and improve your game, or the classic, leather design which lace up and stick in the grass when you need them too. The response showed that it’s a very close call between new and old style boots, with 51.4% of those asked preferring modern technology to the 48.6% who are sticking to their old school guns (results courtesy of Survey Monkey 17/02/12).

Classics are classic for a reason, Facebook and Twitter fans of were asked for their opinion and some expressed not only their preference, but why they loved their boots. One fan simply stated ‘Puma King classics, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. Customers also pointed out that in some cases, boots with modern technology come cheaper and that the younger generation preferred the new technology, perhaps encouraging their decision to choose a more modern boot given the current economic climate.
