Well as a member of the tight five you are going to want the 8-studded boots, probably with a hard toe. I know I went to the hard toe after getting tired of losing a toenail or two each season.
Other than that is doesn't really matter, so long as you stick with one of the reputable manufacturers such as Nike or Addidas. Finding a good fit is more important than brand (no two boots fit the same foot in exactly the same way) so take he time and trouble to try on as many different pairs as possible. Do not buy the first pair that catches your fancy -- resolve not to buy during the first one or two fitting sessions. Also make sure you get the staff to help you with the fit.
And after doing all that, get the pair which you think suits you best. And only you can answer that question.
