As quite a keen footballer when I was younger, and an even bigger fan, football boot technology combines two big loves of mine. In wet and windy conditions, controlling, passing and shooting can become far more difficult. Loss of friction between your feet and the ball often results in miscontrolling, slicing shots, and generally making yourself look hopeless.
Nike claim to have resolved this issue with new materials and design features on all 4 of their main boots.
