    Yeah it is... You should use boots... Adidas Predator Absolute is magnificent for a midfielder... But the Nike Air Legends and the Nike AZT IV supremacy is not bad either...

    Yes they are... But personally, I prefer the Vapor II's... Dunno, the Vapor III's seem to offer less protection... Thats the impression I get when I put them on....

    position isn't as important as style of play. do you rely on your speed? are you a power player? what do you consider your strengths and weaknesses? that'd help you a lot

    Nike Air Zoom Total 90 III. I'm not a big fan of the Supremacy, but I love the III. A solid and sturdy boot that's not "heavy". It offers good protection and a good surface for a wide variety of passes, assuming that you're doing a lot of distribution from the defensive midfield position.

    i play right back, tough tackles and run a lot. my problem is that i play my home games on this ash allweatherpitch stuff. and all my away games are on astroturf. now i cant use metal studs(not allowed in my league) and up until now i've been using those plastic long studs. but they get worn away after about 6 months and then i need new boots. i cant use really small studs cos i need grip for the astroturf pitches. any ideas what kind of studs i can use? hard ones that'll last longer than 6 months on allweather pitches?

    well I'd agree with the others, the total 90 line is a good option. Personally, I like the supremacies better than the 3's, but the 3's are kind of hard to find, since they've been discontinued.
    Other ideas: adidas +Predator Absolute, Puma v-Konstruct, or the umbro X boot (II or III).
    In any case, you definitely want FIRM ground cleats, as opposed to soft ground, too. The cleats might wear down, but there's no pair of boots in the world that you won't have that problem with, given what you're playing on.
    You can find them all here.

    Tunit with hard ground studs might do.. in any case, you will change the studs, not the boot... and at most, the chassis (but that is very difficult to get worn away).

    The most important thing is to wear a boot that feels comfortable and natural on your feet. The last thing you want is a boot giving you blisters or hurting your feet. If you can, try and get a good running test with them.
