If you’re a football boot aficionado, general football fan or player, you will get the chance to make your own mind up as to the impact the Concave football boot will have, by visiting Footy Boots over the next couple of weeks.

 new Adidas Predator PowerSwerve colourway have unveiled a new Adidas Predator PowerSwerve tunit colourway, made especially for adidas sponsored players in Austria and Switzerland at Euro 2008.
