A common problem these days for people in the market for a new pair of football boots, is that not everyone wants to wear obnoxiously loud coloured football boots.
Believe it or not, but some folk would rather a standard black pair of leather boots, as opposed to neon yellow, pink, or blue when they walk out on to the pitch, be it at 5-a-side or in Europe's top leagues.
As Adidas and Nike continue to pander to the modern trend of high visibility in terms of football footwear, we decided we should highlight some boots that have all the special features that modern boots claim to have, but wouldn't look too out of place at World Cup Mexico '86.
Adidas Ace - Core Black Edition
The new Adidas boots that signalled the end of the Predator's storied career is the Ace. The first boot to launch had a bright yellow heel, but a delicious all black colourway soon followed for those who like something a bit more subtle.
Umbro Speciali Pro
Real Madrid star Pepe agreed a sponsorship with Umbro after he decided he wanted to go back to his favourite boots as a kit, and he can be seen wearing the Speciali remake from the upcoming season on.
Puma King II Blackout Edition
You can't go wrong with a pair of Puma Kings. We are big fans of the special white 'Lothar Matthaus' limited edition Kings that are coming out soon, but this blackout pair looks incredibly slick too.
Nike Tiempo Legend V
Also available in two different shades of orange, the Nike Tiempo Legend V thankfully comes in this very sensible black and white colourway which just looks excellent. Which is a good thing because they are extremely comfortable boots to wear.
We've expressed our love of the Gloro before, as Adidas decided to release a cheap, high-quality, no-nonsense boot in a variety of basic colours and thank the good God for the return of the tongue strap. As classy a boot as you will find.
