I am very aware that having two reviews to compare a boot on is often better than having one. With that in mind, I have recruited current professional soccer player Alfonso Motagalvan to give his opinions on certain new releases and boots that he will be testing out over the next few months.
Alfonso has been a part of teams that have won the NCAA National Championship (UCSB 2006) and the PDL Championship (Ventura County Fusion 2009). He also scored the winning goal in the 2009 PDL championship game. Currently, he plies his trade professionally with the Rochester Rhinos.

What do you typically look for in a boot?
When looking for a new boot the first thing I look for is comfort because if it feels right then I feel more confident, allowing me to perform at the top of my game. If a cleat doesn’t feel right then I end up paying more attention to the boot instead of the game. The next thing I look for is touch because if you have a clean first touch you are able to do much more with the ball.
