Price comparison Today

Price is the main argument in which people usually and mainly make their choices. That´s why I´m going to look at this one in the first chapter.

Price is also the first thing, that I look at. 

It depends on the customer´s ability, which boots he or she can afford. Expensive boots are mainly bought by professionals because the choice affects their performance the most. For amateur players, it´s not THAT important. But still. Though to amateurs, cheaper boots can fulfill their needs.

I´m going to compare prices in US dollars. So here is the overview. Size of boots: 9 UK.

You want so see that Results.

Choices of Colorsfootball-1043599_960_720

Combination of colors is certainly my second criterion. Because football boots have to look good on me and satisfy my needs. The wider selection, the better, of course. In these days, industry creates more and more different colors and combinations of them and the players also want to show off more. It means that buyers are looking for sources to purchase that kind of combination which their teammates does not have jet.

So it´s important to offer as many colors as possible.

Choices of Sizes

Third point- what is the range of footwear sizes.

The most uncomfortable situation is, when I thoroughly choose my boots, make the final decision and it turns out, that exact number or size, is out of stock! That drives me mad, honestly. It gives me negative experience and I go look for an alternative.

Seasonal Discounts

Discounts are always welcome. I always look for them and I never buy my football boots without a discount. By that, I don´t need to overpay them as a costumer and I get the most out of it and it saves me money. There is a huge % on extra charge, they add, turning the selling, compare to the cost of discount-1015447_960_720product itself.

Discounts and sales are quite various between the sellers and that is why it´s hard to highlight them all here. Discounts are made through the year. Turning the holidays, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, end of the season etc. Sellers offers discounts up to 70% off to selected products.  

As you can see in the first paragraph, amount of the saved money is considerable.

 

Sports Direct

Seasonal discounts every year, Black Friday, Cyber Monday etc.

Amazon

Seasonal discounts every year, Black Friday, Cyber Monday etc.

Pro Direct Soccer

As all of them offers quite the same discounts, then I´ll give them all 1 point.

Shipping opportunities

Delivering and shipping plays a quite big part in the total cost. This is paid for transporting my shoes. It depends on the destination. The farther, the more it costs.

To some countries these sellers don´t deliver their products, but on that, you have to take a closer look before purchasing. It may be a problem for some of you.

 

Sports Direct

All over the world. Cost depends on the shipping address. Min 7,56$ to UK. Europe 13,31$

 

Amazon

Free shipping over the U.S. Ships products internationally, shipping rates and fees vary depending on the delivery address for your order

 

Pro Direct Soccer

All over the world. Cost depends on the shipping address. Min 6,42$ to UK, Europe 16,16$

 

What gave me most positive impression by the information there was available and where were the lowest prices- was Sport Direct.  So, an other point for them.

Actually all of them were quite equal. They all offer next-day delivery to their own country.packages-1027338_960_720

Return and Refund

Luckily I haven´t had that kind of problems, when I needed to return the items. But its good to be prepared for that, if needed. So if the seller is reliable, then the  returning and refunding system is also clear.

 

Sports Direct

Fill in the Returns Form, complete it and return it with your invoice and goods. Returning time 14 working days.Personalised items are non-returnable. Return postage is at your own cost and risk

Amazon

Go online, fill in the return label, ship your goods. Items shipped from Amazon can be returned within 30 days

Pro Direct Soccer

Returning time 28 working days. Personalised items are non-returnable. Return postage is at your own cost and risk.

 

This subject is so voluminous and needs more detailed investigation, that´s why I´m not going to explain that all. It depend on the current issue. That´s why I´m going to choose the best on the basis of returning time. That means, how many days I have, to return the item. So here is the best option- Amazon.

  1. Finally I found a website with all the information that I was looking for.
    You have some great information here! I am just searching for the best place to buy football boots, so I learned a lot.
    Thanks!
    You saved my day.

  2. I am looking at your site and thinking football boots? I had never heard the term. Then, I saw your chart and a picture of soccer cleats, which is what we call them in the US. LOl! That said, I loved all the information you broke down for us here. My kids will be getting in to sports now soon, all being school aged. so, will put this in my mental file for future use. Thank you so much!

  3. Hi ravel,
    I came across your website because I’d like to buy some football boots for my nephew for Christmas . I don’t know a lot about football but I was thinking about buying the Nike Mercurial Victory which is about the right price on Amazon but I was hoping on a lower price. Would you recommend buying them on Amazon or is there a better price on another website ?
    Those are a little bit above budget , so if I could find a better offer, it would be great!
    Thanks for your reply!

    • Hi there.
      It´s a good idea to buy football boots for Christmas and always a good idea to compare prices.
      Please take a look at SportsDirect.com” target=”_blank”>Sports Direct online store and check out what they have to offer.
      To give you more information, I have to know which model exactly did you mean.

  4. Hello,
    Thanks for the information provided is very useful.I have six years old son, and I am trying to find boots for him.
    Can you recommend anything for me please?

  5. I love how you used the term Football instead of Soccer.
    Anyways, very good comparison. I used to play high school Football and would spend hours looking for the right cleats. My friends and I usually buy from eastbay.com or nike.com.
    But I feel like your comparison proves more than what I’m saying in terms of overall quality of the site.
    What soccer cleats do you use? Can I have your recommendation as to which cleats are good overall?
    Cheers!

    • Yes, there is a difference how they are called in US, but I think that “football boots” is more international.
      I´m currently using Nike Tiempo football boots for firm ground. Indoor I´m using at the moment Nike Elastico and on the turf Nike Mercurial football boots. So all the boots are from Nike currently. In near future I´m going to try Adidas.
      My recommendation!
      It depends on many factors. Surface, position, etc. Feel free to ask some more questions.
      Meanwhile read my post about “how to choose football boots” and after that I can recommend you most suitable boots.

  6. reading this site brings back my football days. I looked at the puma king and boi have they changed, im surprised as football boots havnt changed that much in price since I played 10 years ago, if i was to start again i would probably go sports direct and get the puma always done good boots, are they still top of the game now?

    • Good old times huh?
      I also think that the price level is quite the same as it used to be. It´s not only for the chosen ones.
      Puma is still on the top, yes. One of the top 3 manufacturers and they are not letting Adidas and Nike too far ahead.
      Puma is still great choice.
      Check out my Puma football boots page!

  7. Thank you, I will be finding this very useful in the near future. I have a son and of course I know absolutely nothing about football boots (being a female growing up with 2 sisters!). I am going to bookmark this page so when we are ready I have the information on hand.
