The Evolution of Football Boots

The rivalry of Puma and Adidas brought a great revolution in the department of soccer cleats as Adidas released there outsole Traxion technology in the year 1995 which consistedof tapered shaped blades. In reply Puma introduced the Puma cell technology in 1996 which consisted of a mid-sole boot. To this Adidas replied with studs which were wedge shaped.

In 1997 new companies Mizuno and Reebok entered the market and released the Mizuno Wave and various popular soccer cleats that resulted in great success. The year also saw the entry of the company Nike that made an instant impact with its Nike Mercurial bootsweighingonly 200g.Since 2000 recent developments show the use of Nomiswet control technology for the purpose of creating the sticky boot, the pig boot, shark technology by Kelme as well as the phenomenal design of the Lotto Zhero Gravity lace less football boots. These boots gained worldwide popularity and achieved great success. Laser technology played an important part in the making of the world’s first ever completely customized football boots by Prior 2 Lever which are probably the most thrilling and innovative football boots ever.

Today debates are being made about the lack of protection being provided by the modern football boots to the players and the increase in player injuries support these debates. Therefore it is believed that major boot manufactures will now give up their quest for making lighter boots andwill instead make boots that offer the players more protection. So we can expect lighter and more powerful shoes in the future with more eccentric designs and styles.
