Since the announcement that they were going to enter the US market, there has been a high level of intrigue into how the Asics line of soccer cleats actually performs. Well, we now have two pairs ready to go into testing; the Lethal Stats and Lethal Tigreoer. Needless to say, I am pretty eager to get them into testing and will begin with the Lethal Stats this weekend (Black/White/Pacific colorway).
Out of the box, there a few things to note about each releases. First off, I am impressed with their overall shape, particularly through the midfoot. Asics provide a fit that has been designed to cater for players with wide feet. Inside the boot, you will find a full tongue wrap that I personally approve of as it provides an extremely snug fit. And finally, the 10mm raised heel offers an unusual experience that will probably take a few sessions to adapt to. A few of you that have tested Asics boots mentioned the raised heel in particular, so it is an area I am eager to find out more about first-hand!
