Football Boots
« on: September 08, 2022, 08:18:34 AM »
My lad has a pair of Puma Kings but got badly studded on his upper and its sore for days after a match. He reckons he needs a pair with better padding on the tongue/upper. Any recommendations?

Boots seem to have gotten much thinner these days (and the prices are scandalous) Firstly, boycott Puma, and maybe buy a neoprene ankle strapping for a bit extra protection?

Boycott them because they are German?

I'd avoid this at all costs unless you're looking to weaken the ankle. Truthfully, no matter what boot you wear if you get studded its going to hurt. Maybe a pair of adidas predators from a few years ago that had 'grips' on top (not the most recent couple) would lessen the blow.

Was he not the brother of the Adidas founder - was he a Nazi too?

My last pair of boots were Asics Lethal Testimonals, kangaroo leather upper. I loved them but some people thought they were heavy. Stud to the top of the foot will be sore no matter what he wears though.

They both were, should we be buying trainers that belong to a family of Nazi's? I mean considering what they did during the war against the Jews

I just bought a pair of Nike running shoes, hopefully they have no connection with something or some bad regime

Lads spending 200 on them. You can still get a good pair of Dunlops at Nutts Corner for 30.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

They'll turn you away at the Fintona turnstiles for those boots.

2 choices, get the dear boots or lobby to move the match to Kildress.

Always buy Puma. Best boot about. Usually buy 2 or 3 pairs at a time for the wee lad.
