If you have ever been tempted to test out Concave’s revolutionary Powerstrike technology, but haven’t been brave enough to splash big money on a pair, here is an option to consider. It is the Concave Volt 2.0, the more economical tier boot in the speed focused range.
The key difference between the Volt+ and Volt 2.0 is the upper material, with a simplified PU Synthetic upper used on this version. It is slightly stiffer and very smooth compared to the lightly textured Microfibre used on the Volt+. But you still get the all important front Concave component with its contoured surface to enhance strike power. It is the one feature of the boot that separates them from the market. Added to that, lacing is obviously important to make the system work, so an F3 (Football Form Fit) dual-lacing system is utilized to snugly supports players’ feet without contorting the foots natural form.
Underfoot, the Volt FG has its own soleplate, built as the most aggressive in the Concave range. It features a molded, oval stud configuration for uncompromising speed and high traction on all natural surfaces.
Sizing + Fit
So, in the past I’ve never felt fully comfortable with the sizing of Concave boots I’ve tested. This time around, I requested a full size down. And the change makes all the difference with how they feel in-game. In fact, it also brings the Powerstrike technology more into play because the natural contouring becomes more natural with around the shape of your foot.
If you are looking to order a pair, I absolutely advise ordering down a full size. The actual listed size seems to be a full level up. In my case, I’m normally a 9US but going forward will be ordering an 8US!
Concave Volt+ Review
If you want to read about the top-tier model in the Volt line-up, check our review from earlier this year.
Again, one of the key features of the Volt 2.0 is the fact they are so much more affordable. But, their availability in the US comes through the Concave site only – they are not yet available in some of the primary stores. Retail wise they drop in at a decent $89.99, which is a great price for players that are interested in exploring what Concave have to offer. Better again, some pairs are available on sale for $50!
