[Update: New price drops from Amazon and added available sizes as of 2/21]

I'm a big fan of classic, quality soccer cleats. As such, I've been watching for deals on the Pele Sports 1970 soccer boots. Kangaroo leather shoes are starting to get scarce as manufacturers like Adidas & Nike are feeling the pressure to move away from them (the newest Adidas adiPure line aren't k-leather anymore). These 1970s are one piece, full kangaroo leather.

They fit a half-size big - so order a half-size smaller than normal. Also, if you haven't purchased kangaroo leather shoes before, it's typically recommended to buy them snug as they stretch to fit like a glove. In adidas I wear a 9.5, but purchased size 8.5 and they fit the way they should for me.

Amazon - $44.46-$51.28:
Only limited sizing & colors available:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0040B2K12/
  • Green (sizes 7.5, 11.5 & 13) is the cheapest - $44.46 (or $35.57 after 20% off coupon for signing up for their "Shoes" email (I got mine instantly upon sign-up).
  • Black (sizes 7, 7.5, 10.5, 11, 11.5 & 13 - plus size 8 is on it's way back to them) is down to $48.85 (or $39.08 after 20% off).
  • White (sizes 7, 9, 11.5 & 13) is down to $51.28 (or $41.02 after 20% off).
  • Free return shipping with Amazon, so it's easy enough to buy a size/color you're not sure about and then return if it doesn't work for you.

Shoebacca - $69.99 + $5 shipping:
Much bigger size selection & color options from Shoebacca, but costs more. You can buy from Shoebacca through Amazon, but they charge more for shipping than just purchasing directly from Shoebacca. Also, a couple of the cashback sites are offering 7% back which basically covers the $5 shipping they charge for Outlet items.

Colors:
  • Black/yellow
  • Black/orange
  • White/red
  • White/yellow
  • Green/yellow

Also pretty good deals on the soft ground (SG) model:
And if you're happy with full-grained leather, the originally $120 Pele Sports 1962 boots are also cheap:
The 1970's are very well-reviewed boots around the web (here [footy-boots.com], here [soccerlens.com] and here [soccerbible.com]) and are in the same class as the Adidas adiPure, Nike Tiempo Legend, Puma King, etc.

Yeah, Amazon seems to only have one or two of any given size (if they have any at all).

I picked up a pair of the Black & Yellows. Tried a small size that Amazon had in stock but had to return it it. Bought the next size up from Shoebacca. Guessing I missed getting my size from Amazon by a week or two.

I would think so. You could always hedge your bets and get the green in size 12 (since Amazon has one of them in stock).

Don't forget to sign-up for the Shoes Email if you haven't already and save another 20% making them only $39...
