Association football, also known as soccer in the United States, is one of the most popular sports among all ages. Players wear special shoes called football boots or cleats. They are slim shoes with studs on the bottom to help grip the pitch. They come in a variety of colours and designs, but you can make your own by creating a customised pair through a football boot manufacturer online. Common brands that personalise are Nike and adidas.

Choose a company and style of shoe.

Check your size. You can get measured at a shoe store and try on the style of boot you chose to make sure the fit is right.

Go to the customisation website and click on the style of boot you chose.

Enter your size.

Choose the base colour and the brand's logo colour. You can choose colours of your favourite football club or national team, your own team or colours you like.

Select the tongue, heel, laces and lining colours. Play around with different colour combinations before choosing.

Choose the colour of the soles and studs.

Add laser etching. You can have anything written on your boot---your name and number, your favourite player's name and number, or a team name.

Click "Finish." You will be asked to confirm your choices. Then click "Add to Cart" to place your order.
