Best Answer

Most current players wear specialist football boots, which can be made either of leather or a synthetic material. Modern boots are cut slightly below the ankles, as opposed to the high-ankled boots used in former times, and have studs attached to the soles. Studs may be either moulded directly to the sole or be detachable, normally by means of a screw thread.

Some players choose to deliberately wear boots which are slightly too small for them, as they feel this increases their ability to control the ball. However, this too has been blamed for injuries suffered by players.
