We all know that football doesn’t stop for a Christmas break, at least not for the professionals. For the rest of us, however, Christmas is the time for more watching and less playing. Somehow all of the eating, drinking and festive TV seems to take priority over the wet and cold training sessions and Sunday morning matches.
But as with most sports and fitness regimes, January is the time to get stuck back in and get back on top footballing form. Finding the motivation to do this is never easy, but investing in some new kit gives you a reason to get back in the game. There’s only one way to try out those new boots, and that’s to go and play some footy.
When it comes to football boots, Nike has got it covered. A blend of advanced technology and sharp design is the basis of their expansive boot range, and thanks to a following of some world class footballers, Nike are the go-to brand for new football footwear. Here is a quick look at the new range of Nike football boots for Spring 2011.
Nike Total 90
Not only another boot made for improving ball control, the Nike Total 90 boots are also the ones to wear if you’re looking for accuracy. A sturdy yet lightweight boot with shot pads at the insteps – the T90 is designed to provide stability and traction to help with that all important shooting accuracy.
Nike’s Mercurial range has always been about speed and the new Mercurial Victory FG boots are no exception. Lightweight bladed studs allow for quicker acceleration on the pitch and provide the best traction out of all three boots. As with all the other models, the synthetic material is soft and contoured, which means it fits the foot perfectly and provides great ball control.
Every feature of the Nike CTR360 boot is aimed to give greater control over the ball. From the dampening pods to the asymmetrical lacing and advanced padding on all of the main contact points, the CTR360 has been refined in every way possible to assist ball control. Comfortable and lightweight, the moulded studs allow for speed on the pitch, while the well placed cushion inserts reduce stud pressure and help to form a well fitting, high quality football boot.
So whatever position you play, making sure you have the best boots for your game is easy with Nike and Littlewoods, where you will find an even wider range of footwear and sportswear – just what you need to get back in the game after Christmas.
