[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:
  • 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.
  • 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 [], here [] and here []) and are in the same class as the Adidas adiPure, Nike Tiempo Legend, Puma King, etc.

Is D(M) is wide?
I believe that stands for Medium, but that can mean anything.

Deal is still alive and well on Shoebacca. I ordered a pair for 24.99 + $5 shipping.

I received them just in time to replace my deteriorating Copa Mundials. I think the 1970 FGs are nicer. I wore a 12 in the Copa's and ordered the same in the Pele but an 11.5 would have been a little in my experience they run a little large. Width not an issue because it's a nice soft kangaroo leather and you just tie the boots to fit your foot like a glove.

I wear cleats 3-4 times a week playing Ultimate (frisbee). I am super happy with my purchase, hence the essay.
