If there was anyone questioning Pele Sports desire to become a top player in the soccer market check this release out – the Trinity 3E. These boots are pretty extraordinary and completely go against the norms we expect as soccer players and there has been huge buzz about them since that unusual Press Release Pele Sports released a few months back! I just received a pair this morning and I am planning on getting them into testing today in order to find out what they are all about. In terms of retail, the Trinity will be available for around $200.
There is a lot of details to cover on these including the fact they weigh in at 5.6oz, but lets start with the basics:
Start with the stud configuration, which looks like something created by NASA. The concept here is that each individual stud has been configured through a revolutionary stud mapping technology, that together, produces a new type of traction. Greg Lever-O’Keefe, Head of Design for Pelé Sports sums it up stating that “Each stud has been carefully sculpted to increase ground penetration, reduce turf resistance and most importantly minimize injury risk.”
A Pretty Unique Upper
Pele Sports use a synthetic upper that has been specifically created for this boot called Symbioskin, which is a low density, tri-laminate material. According to Pele Sports, the upper is designed to offer two widths, ensuring the highest level of comfort for all types of players – I am not quite sure how this works, but I am interested to find out!
Things get even more technical here. In order to strip away unnecessary weight and structure, the Pelé Sports team worked with top Formula One engineers who are familiar with making their cars more streamlined. It makes sense, right – who better to work with than the people who’s primary focus is creating the fastest, yet safest, racing car. The boots weigh in at 5.6 ounces – so yes, they are a speed boot! Despite extremely low weight characters, all Trinity 3E materials were chosen for maximum durability.
Impacting Muscle Memory
To get even more scientific, these boots have another purpose – improving muscle function. The stud configuration around the heel naturally increases muscle simulation as you get in and out of the ground quicker. Repetition trains fast foot speed and coordination. This is an area that really needs to be put to the test, as I am a little skeptical. But, since we haven’t seen a boot designed like this before, I am keeping an open mind.
In terms of retail, they are going to hit the market at $199.99 and are currently available to order. Stay tuned for more images and details later today, once I get to take them out – and a full review will follow in the coming weeks!
