Light As Air, Fast As A Demon – Lightweight Soccer Boots

If you have been following the transformation of soccer boots in the recent years, then one thing would have made itself very obvious. And that is nothing but the fact that soccer boot makers are progressively making lighter boots. So the obvious question is how light can they really get?

Are lighter soccer boots better?

There is an easier way to look at it. Imagine if your boot was heavy. Would it not affect your performance in a bad way? Exactly! So the converse is true that when your boots are lighter, you are able to pack in more performance. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that these boots are also called as ‘Speed boots’.

How to choose a lightweight soccer boot?

As with any sport, the skill of the sportsperson is what really counts. So an ace player obviously is not going to rely on improving his speed by buying speed boots. But for the aspiring soccer player this can make all the difference between rocking the pitch or just playing a regular game.

So if you are wondering how to choose the lightest boot for soccer, then don’t worry. We have put together a quick list of things to look for in your soccer boot.

  • Fit – No matter how light your boots are, a snug fitting pair of boots will really help you in achieving top speeds instead of one that is tight. You should also look for sufficient toe box space in case of broad feet.
  • Material – Kangaroo leather gives a snug fit but is not light. Synthetic materials are light but are not waterproof. Pleather or synthetic leather offer the best of both worlds as they are light as well as waterproof.
  • Budget – Get shoes that are within your budget as top-tier boots are not essentially long-lasting. Mid to Low tier boots are perfect for most uses.
