i have been playing soccer for as long as i can remember. let`s say forty years, for arguement`s sake. in that time i`ve worn all manner of boots. i was the first boy at school in england to have boots with green stripes on. under the lights they glowed. very cool. i have had hand-made pairs when i was paid to play and i`ve paid top dollar for pairs when i paid to play as i got older. never have i worn plastic boots. plastic boots were cheap and would tear your feet to bits after 90 minutes on the field.
the pair of boots in the picture are made entirely of composite materials. i`m not sure of the name of all of the materials but there isn`t any leather in there whatsoever.
i was hesitant to try them at first but after 10 minutes in them on the field i was convinced they are the best boots i`ve ever worn.
though they are kind of shiny.............
