Football Boots for 2015
Posted by The Shadow on January 12, 2015 (0 Comments)
We all know the feeling of digging out that footy bag that's been sitting in a cupboard since September fermenting in it's own putrid smell waiting for you to open it up and unleash hell on your poor nostrils. We all go through the same routine every year, but that smell of grass, mud, B.O. and deep heat floors us every time. But in it's own crazy little way, it's exciting because footy season is just around the corner.
Many clubs from soccer to AFL to rugby begin their preseason this week, or in the very near future for the 2015 campaign. Some were even crazy enough to start before Christmas! I've always had the mentality that there is only so much tread on these tyres, so I've tended to be a late comer to preseason shenanigans of hill sprints, time trials, beep tests accompanied by the never ending promise/dangling carrot of 'ball work' from the coach.
So when that time of ball work does come around, you better hope your football boots are still in good shape from the previous year, otherwise it's time to go shopping.
I know we're a footy boot site, but we do recommend owning 2 pairs of boots to keep in your bag throughout the season.
If you fancy the high end boots like the Nike Mercurial Vapors or the adidas F50s, then you really don't want to put those boots on when training conditions are wet and muddy. You're better off putting on those cheaper entry-level boots like the Nike Mercurial Victorys or adidas F10s as poor conditions will chew through your boots.
Here are some other great reasons for having 2 pairs of boots:
