Best Junior Footy Boots 2016!
It’s football time again! Training is starting up and kids are keen to get back out there and have a kick. We’ve reviewed the best junior boots on offer for the upcoming 2016 season to minimise the chance of your kids pulling up sore.
Footy boots change every season and are now lighter than ever. While this feels great it can compromise the amount of cushioning within the boot. So if your child has a history of lower limb injuries we recommend the Asics Gel Lethal Ultimate. It is based on a running shoe and incorporates increased cushioning & support throughout the midsole, an excellent choice for hard grounds!
The BEST cushioned footy boot is:
- Asics Gel Lethal Ultimate
If you’re after something a bit more lightweight to dart around the packs with there’s good news. This season there’s a wide range of boots on offer than offer a combination of performance factors and comfort.
The Top 5 lightweight ‘performance’ footy boots are:
- Asics Tigreor 9
- Asics Lethal Shot
- Adidas Predator Instinct
- Nike Hyper Venom
- Nike Tiempo Legend
The best boot will ultimately depend on fit, feel and matching the outsole (tread) to the surface you are playing on.
The best places to go to buy footy boots are:
- Rebel Sport Geelong
- De Grandi Cycle and Sport
- The Athletes Foot (Asics support boots only)
- A-mart Sports
Yours in keeping people active, healthy and happy!
