Word is coming through that there will soon be a former glory brand back on the market, reborn after several decades of slumber. You might be familiar with Stylo Matchmakers, the boots worn by none other than George Best (as well as Kevin Keegan and Trevor Francis.) Well, they are on the verge of a return, with a modern classic in the form of the Matchmakers Heritage Seventeen.
What exactly do we know about these new boots other than the fact they are being released in a trusty black colorway?
They will be created using a professional, lightweight, super soft microfiber upper, with “killer touch” texture vents. Inside that boots, an Oxcited breathable insole will be used for additional impact condensing. What is even more exciting is the fact the brand has already lined up 50 pro players in the UK and USA who are set to wear the boots. They will be available in FG & SG options and sizes ranging from 6-11 UK. And they are launching this coming March on Amazon Premium.
This could be real good! Given the history behind the boots, there should be a lot of interest from old school fans of the game. It is an opportunity to relive former glory days in an entirely new way. If the boots live up to expectations, there is the potential of a real success story here. What do you guys think of the boots? And who will be following along through the release?
