Morelia, Japanese handicraft masterpiece
The idea of running without shoes had existed from ancient times when ordinary people walked barefoot, and it is considered healthy for the body. Human feet are naturally designed to handle running pressure for a long time without the support of any object.     Morelia II is here to offer the sensation of bare feet for those reliable footballers on the gridiron. This legendary shoe helped well-known names like superstar Rivaldo and Rogerio Ceni with their perf[…]

Nike Phantom Vision Elite: A phenomenal soccer cleats by Nike
After Nike retired Magista model and replaced them with the Phantom model, many players, including myself were a bit disappointed, but at the same time very curious about what the new model brings into the game.     After a very successful chapter with Magista models, Nike had to put a lot effort to make a new model, which will outrun previous one in terms of quality, comfort, durability, and others, which they actually did.     As a player,[…]

Nike Mercurial Superfly 7: A boot of speed, agility, and aggressiveness
Speed, agility, and aggressiveness are the first three words that come to mind when I think of the Nike Mercurial silo.     The new generation of Mercurials is expanding on the classic speed boot mantra that Nike is famous for. The Superfly 7 is softer, lighter and thinner than any Mercurial we have ever seen before. The upper, straight out of the box, feeling up to twice as soft and supple in hand compared to the previous Superfly 6, which felt a little[…]

Football reimagined with the Nike MagistaX Proximo II
A good athletic shoe is like a good referee; If they are doing their job well, you forget they are even there. The Nike Magista X Proximo II is a near-perfect futsal/indoor soccer shoe.     It’s an ideal balance of lightness and support, as well as flexibility and stiffness. I believe that in most cases, a soccer shoe has minimal impact on a player’s ability. After all, the best players in the world grew up mostly in bare feet kicking a bottle[…]

Adidas COPA 19.1 – Make leather great again
Think of a classic football boot and you’ll immediately be transported to the Adidas Copa Mundial. Plain, simple leather boots in black were all the rage for most of football history right up until approximately 20 years ago. While leather still has its place in the hearts of the regular boot connoisseur, manufacturers started phasing them out about 20 years ago while moving towards synthetic and knitted uppers which were lighter and more resistant to water. It wa[…]

Fourth time lucky with the Furon

Fourth time lucky with the Furon
New Balance is relatively a newbie in the football boot industry – having been introduced only a few years back. They came out all guns blazing with the Visaro and Furon. The Visaro was built for comfort and control and it garnered rave reviews. The Furon, however, was one of the most hated boots to have ever been released. It looked fantastic but was plagued by complaints of an overly stiff upper and was deemed too uncomfortable by customers and players alik[…]

Puma Future 2.1 Netfit FG/AG: The future of football shoes?
Puma has not been on top of their game in making football boots since quite some time. But this changed last year. The big cat made it its way into the market by introducing the puma future. Puma took a risky decision as the market in 2018 was all about laceless boots, and Puma introduced boots which have their specialty in the laces itself. A bold move I ought to say. Nevertheless, the boots were a big hit in the market as stars Antoine Griezmann and Giorgio Chiellini[…]
