Soccer Shoe History


The soccer shoe has come a long way to say the least. Work boots are now high performance footwear that allows a soccer athlete to push his or her skills to limit. Designs today are not so much to protect players from injury as it is about maximizing their strategy.

The soccer shoe has undergone dramatic change to meet the growing demands of an ever-popular sport. Improved comfort, resiliency, grip, and even lacing and eyelet technology for a flatter, more comfortable fitting, are testament to how far the boot has come. Today soccer shoes allow more freedom to move, to score, and to entertain the spectator than ever before. Soccer shoes entered a new century taking on it own life.


How Are Vapor Mercurial Made


Soccer shoes made of leather are durable and breathable they are also flexible and give lot of comfort to the wearer. Two types of leather are used in soccer shoes-full-grain leather and kangaroo leather. Full -grain leather is less expensive compared to Kangaroo leather. Kangaroo leather is softer, lighter and durable as compared to full-grain leather. If the leather is soft, the ball has a good.
Leather shoes are not suitable for playing soccer on wet surfaces as they absorb more water. It is also very difficult to dry them.
The durability of the shoe is less in case of soft leather.

Synthetic Soccer Shoes are most suitable for beginners and intermediate players as they are less expensive. They are most suitable for playing soccer in wet conditions, as it is easy to clean and dry them. But, synthetic Soccer shoes have got disadvantages also- they are less comfortable and less durable.


The outsole of most soccer shoes is made of rubber. The main advantage of rubber outsole is that it provides considerable traction particularly in grassy fields. Rubber made soccer shoes also prevent slipping on the field. Hence, rubber outsoles are most common in soccer shoes.
The upper part in many Soccer Shoes is made of suede. Suede made upper part provides warmth and comfort to the wearer. Besides, suede made soccer shoes are breathable that is they allow easy circulation of air.


How will you acquire these materials? Well I will get the Kangaroo leather from Australia because that where you can find Kangaroo skin. It also might be cheaper. I plan on getting rubber materials from Liberia, my home country. Rubbers are made from trees. Laces are a fiber so I could get it from cotton fields.
