If you are looking for an absolutely unique soccer cleat that offers something completely different, these might be the cleats for you! Dirk Bikkemberg is a Belgian fashion designer who is known for his passion for soccer. With that being said, the Bikkemberg collection of soccer cleats and footwear has grown substantially since 2000. In fact, Bikkemberg actually has an Italian soccer team called FC Bikkemberg Fossombrone. Dirk, from the beginning, has used the team as a testing ground for styling and fabric technology.
There are two design in Dirk’s cleat collection, the first generation was called the Bix while the latest collection is known as the Tirosegno. The concentric circles remain in the Tirosegno, but the rest of the boot underwent a range of totally different construction processes. The result was a more tailored, lighter, faster and more streamlined soccer cleat. The Tirosegno was launched in 2008, and as such has become the leading designer soccer cleat on the market!

My opinion: The collection does have a funky look about them, and the first few times I saw the cleats I was like ‘what are these things?’ But, gradually they have kind of grown on me (maybe because they are termed as ‘designer’. Actually, I have to admit the video below kind of swayed my opinion! Right now I am not willing to drop $300, but when I head back home to Ireland for Xmas, I might just have to put a pair on my list!! Feel free to let us know what you think of the collection below. Again, for the month of November, if you leave a comment your email will be entered in a chance to win a pair of Adidas Predator X soccer cleats*! And excuse the YouTube still image!!!!
