Something I don’t get to play enough right now, but wish I could more, is short sided five aside games. Loving the below video (released in October) that highlights the Nike5 Bomba Turfs – it gives me an itch for getting out to play (and I even found a venue nearby!) Playing short sided is an excellent way to develop and really hone your skills.
In terms of the boots, one of the benefits is the superior traction, comfort and grip you get from the Nike5 Bomba Pro (as pictured). The upper is made of a natural leather with off-set lacing, increasing the strike zone. Add to that foam pods along the instep and it is a boot designed with shot control in mind.
The design of the actual boot itself is pretty unique – not quiet the best look out there, but overall they are stylish. One of the benefits of buying turf specific boots is that they are priced lower than regular soccer cleats. The Bomba can be purchased for around $70, which in my opinion is a pretty decent deal!
I haven’t tested them yet, but I am considering getting my hands on a pair for review. In the meantime, if you have had the opportunity to wear a pair leave your thoughts on how they work out below.
