What boots should you buy? – part 1
Ones that fit. Done. Haha if only it were that easy I wouldn’t be here now writing this post. Football boots are perhaps the most essential piece of equipment that someone needs in order to play football properly and safely. If you simply played in a pair of runners or casual shoes you would more than likely slip, trip and fall over constantly. Apart form making a fool of yourself this could also lead to injuries.
Football boots are a very subjective topic. People like different things and when it comes to football boots this is no different. There are 3 main materials that uppers are made of, 5 different outsole types (stud types), and 1000s of different colorways to appeal to everyone’s needs. Then there are different widths to all of the boots, how much they stretch will depend on the material. There are also different models of the same boot with different price points.
So, in this series we are going to go through all of that plus my recommendation for what you should do buying for yourself and for your kids. Plus debunk some myths in relation to football boots. I myself am a massive boot nerd. I love talking about them, all of the technology that goes into them intrigues me massively and full disclosure I check all my favorite boot sites pretty much everyday for new boots and new deals… despite already having 5 pairs.
