Just (Don’t) Do It…

June 3rd, 2009 by James Evans | Comment

The Adidas versus Nike battle was taken to new extremes this week with the former’s release of the F50i Premium Pack, an assortment of boots for supposedly every condition, every occasion, every surface, and every player. The pack comprises of a trolley-dolly style wheel case in which you can transport around with you a selection [...]

Boot Wars: He Who Shall Be O-Beye-D

May 12th, 2009 by James Evans | Comment

It was the clash of the fallen titans, and one which looked to be hammering a severely rusty nail into the coffin of the barcodes after Habib Beye‘s hilarious own goal after only two minutes of the relegation six-pointer that was Newcastle United versus Middlesbrough at St James’ Park last night. Strange, because only yesterday [...]

Boot Wars Review: Puma Winner? It’s a Given…

May 5th, 2009 by James Evans | Comment

It all adds up to an impressive if rather belated debut for the Puma boot, while another damaging defeat for the Adidas Predator Powerswerve boot means this famous cleat shows more evidence of being found wanting in certain elements of the game.

May 1st, 2009 by James Evans | Comment

The Puma V-Konstrukt III is a boot that prides itself on technology and performance coming together, harnessing all the power you would expect of the Puma range with the support and versatility associated with any goalkeeper’s boot. Ruthless German efficiency – say no more!

April 7th, 2009 by James Evans | Comment

Manufacturers will bang on about tapering, stitching and k-leather for hours, but the long and short is a thick upper that gives maximum absorbancy between the ball and the foot. Get this right, and you son should find that his boot isn’t compromising his game.

Boot Wars Review: Lescott, No Less

April 6th, 2009 by James Evans | Comment

The Total 90 boot has finally clocked up its first Boot Wars victory, after three previous defeats. It’s too late for it to catch the frontrunners, but it’s good to see the old favourite back on its feet. Literally.

Boot Wars: The Battle of the Have Nots

April 4th, 2009 by James Evans | Comment

Some might think it strange for Everton defender Lescott to be wearing the same Nike Total 90 Laser boot as Wayne Rooney, but Everton’s slick game relies on moving the ball around the midfielder, and with Lescott being the prime supply line at the start of that process, Everton rely heavily on the accomplished defender.

Boot Wars: Tottenham Tearaways on the International Scene

March 27th, 2009 by James Evans | Comment

Home advantage for Keane and a bit that suits the Republic’s all-out goalscoring thrust. Berba’s Predator implies a more measured approach of touch and move football, but with the ability to strike decisively, whether that be for three or 30 yards. Eyes are on the Republic, but beware down-in-the-dumps Dimitar.

Boot Wars: Last Chance Saloons For Sale At Anfield

March 21st, 2009 by James Evans | Comment

Going head-to-head in the battle will be two of the best English midfielders you will find… Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard (no introductions needed) and Villa’s James Milner.
