Uhlsport Make Strides on US Market

Here is something you might have missed, a full range of Uhlsport soccer cleats that are available to the US market!  I have to admit, I was not aware of this myself until Chivas USA goalkeeper Danny Kennedy passed their website along. Uhlsport are a bit of an unknown quantity when it comes to soccer in the US. But after checking their site out and finding some great looking boots, I am now more surprised than ever that they are not more readily available on the market. In fact, I was only aware of the company because of their popularity in the goalkeeping realm. As it turns out, Uhlsport has been in the US market since January 2008, and since then, their sales have jumped over 50% year-on-year, showing that the range has a lot to offer the market. It is also rumored that we will be seeing a lot more players wearing them this season in MLS. The company itself was founded in Germany back in 1948, and has a reputation for producing some of the best goalkeeper equipment on the market. But that’s not to say they don’t produce great gear for outfield players.

As an example, take a look at the below images of the Kickschuh Instinkt(left) and Kickschuh Performance(right). In my opinion, these are some decent looking boots, and to be honest, they look a lot better than some other cleats currently on the market. Performance wise I can’t comment, but as we speak I am in the process of getting my hands on a few pairs for testing. Reviews to follow! In the meantime, I recommend checking out the full range on the Uhlsport USA website. Let us know what you think in the poll below, or alternatively leave us a comment!

  1. Hey, I actually think these look nice, but I really want to know what they are like to wear! What is the difference between both pairs? Will you be reviewing both?

  2. Hey Evan,

    We hope to be able to test out both, or bring you more info on how they perform. As soon as I have anymore info I will post an update! Watch out for it…

  3. I have been wearing Uhlsport boots for about a decade. I own 10 pairs from across the spectrum of highest end to lower end. I have had to get them imported or from eBay until now. They have unique styling, top quality materials and they all feel great to wear. Some I prefer over others but there is one out there for every player at every level which will be easier to determine now that you can go to a shop and handle them. The top of the line Uhlsport boot is every bit as good or better than any other brand. I think Puma and Adidas are comparable. Check out the Kikksokke if you get the chance. The most unique boot in the world.

  4. I purchase a pair for my daughter who plays U-15 Club soccer, and she loves them…Most kids want Nike or Adidas, but she told me they were comfortable, and she liked the look and how they felt on her feet!
