What position you play on the field may effect your choice. The shoving and tackling of a central defender may require a more solid boot with longer studs.

On the other hand, a pacy winger will need lightweight boots that are good for controlling the ball (but are also padded enough to lump those crosses into the box).

List of the best football boots in the world

Based on the criteria above, here's a list of boots I'd like to own:

  • The most technological football boot in the world= Adidas AdiZero F50 MiCoach.
This pair of boots has microchip technology that measures speed, distance and work rate. It can even link up the information with an app that is available for your smartphone. They are also the boots worn by Lionel Messi. If you've got £120 to spend, these are a very decent option

  • The fastest football boots around= Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly CR7 III.
The CR7 in the name should give you a clue about what kind of a player would wear these. These bad boys are worn by the sublime Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid. They are very lightweight and flexible, with a two-sided design reflecting Ronaldo's ability to play almost anywhere in the attacking third. They are perfect for a lightening fast winger who wants pin-point accuracy. The only negative is that they will set you back somewhere in the region of £224.

  • Maximum control in a football boot- Nike CTR360 Maestri II.
If you're looking for control and a deft, weighted touch, then the CTR360 is Nike's answer. The boots are worn by Andres Iniesta (and have also been worn by Cesc Fabregas). They usually sell at just £99, and are very affordable for boots that won Iniesta the MVP award at EURO 2012!

Well, a lot of people are opting to buy the Adidas F50's at the moment because you can get many different designs for them and lots of their favourite football stars were wearing them in the world cup. But, there are a lot of other decent boots around if you don't want the F50's, like Nike vapors or Adidas predators. I would recommend going down to your local JJB or JD sports and trying on several different pairs to see which ones you like and which ones you find most comfortable. Also, I would bring price into the equation because you don't want to spend too much on a pair of football boots that you might grow out of after a while.

Top Tip: Always remember to go one or two shoe sizes up when buying football boots because when you put shin-pads and football socks on they make you foot a bit bigger, obviously.
