All black boots mean one thing: they have no sponsors for their boots.

To black them. Use black boot polish or U can unpick the logo on Ur boots.

rob, dun get me wrong....

Pros with no sponsors for their boots IS bad sign. Means that their contract with, example, Nike/Adidas/Puma/Diadora has expired and not renewed. So, once the deal is off, they are not allowed to display the logos on their boots. I pity players with no sponsors.

So, their kitman either polish the boots with KIWI Boot Polish or unpick the logos.

No... not that they are not professional enough.....

Example:
Just that if I haven't renew the sponsorship for U, U mustn't be wearing the boots with my logo on it.

My frens who are playing in the Prime Lg here (for prospects), must do that..... They had to make their boots all-black before getting their sponsorship renewed.... Fastest sponsorship talk usually takes about 4-5 days. 1 of my friend's teammates has to wear no-sponsor boots till now... I think.

they cant stop you from wearing their cleats if you dont have any written agreement with them that u cant unless your under contract from them can they? cuz thats kind of bs.
Wow, he just megged three people, maradonas around the last defender, and missed the shot, then not five minutes later a guy on the other team shoots when he gets the ball and scores...

who would you rather be?

Players can wear whatever boots with whatever sponsor/logo/make they want and do not have to be contracted to wear boots. Only a select few have boot deals and a lot of players do not want boot deals so they can change boots all the time if they want. For example Joe Cole used to have a boot deal withe adidas to wear the Nova Mundials then the Supernova's - this boot deal expired his contract with adidas was not renewed but he continued to wear adidas boots (copa mundial's) anyway and now he has changed to Nike air legend's.
And by the way Dennis Bergkamp has a boot deal with Reebok.
Without doubt.

black out boots can also mean that the boots that theyr wearing isnt released yet, and the company dosent want the public to see the design of the boot yet.

not always.. it's mostly because the player hasn't renewed a contract.. I get what you're saying tho.. they did that with the Superfly's.
