Hey guys, how long to football boots usually last before replacing them.

Just curious.

depends on how well you look after them, and surfaces you play on. Last season was fairly wet (pretty similar to every other uk football season!) and we play all our matches on grass, meaning boots get completely soaked and covered in mud after every game. if they're not washed, then the boot gets stiff quickly and leather is more likely to crack, and generally boot deteriorates quicker. but i usually wash them and rub this stuff called dubbin in, which kind of protects the leather and helps them last longer. but even so, full match plus at least two, hour and a bit training sessions a week for about 6 months means mine were pretty much gone by new year. with adidas boots, i found the leather on the toe area of the boot pulls away from the sole plate, especially if you drag your toe when passing, shooting etc. but mine also split along the instep, which lead to copious amounts of shoo goo!

Yeap, pretty much the same really- depends on the surface and the material the boots are made from. I've been playing on 3g astro recently which is like real grass, but covered in rubber crumbs. these things destroy leather boots and have a horrid habit of getting caught under the front of the boot where the main connects to the sole plate. So it pretty much depends like tennis shoes, but on average i can usually stretch a season out of a pair

I don't post pics of apparels often nowadays since I have too many ^_^
I got the henley shirt yesterday. I thought the design is very unique but when I wear it, I look like a priest ^_^. whenever top two buttons open and fold collar a little more than usual. the shirt looks good though.
I did not know Henley and last year summer polo colors are exactly same.
I think Fed's Henley shirt has orange buttons like last year summer polo but the retail version buttons are white color.

anyone knows where I can possibly get orange nike tennis buttons?
maybe I should switch with last year polo buttons.

inno, nice job.

Here are most of my polos and crews I'll do the sleeveless some other time - and maybe figure out a better way to get them all in the shot:

*gag* Are they on dry-cleaner hangers?!
Yes. But that doesn't mean they were dry cleaned. I just reuse hangers.

Special limited edition at Shanghai last year. Has some Mandarin on the back that says "Live Life To Its Fullest. Play Hard". And has the bull logo on the front left at the bottom. Have some extra ones I've been planning to put on The Large Auction Site.
