This is a sort of preview to a new show we are slowly piecing together, entitled “The Boot 411“. The concept of the show is pretty self explanatory from the title. Myself and co-host, Norman Levesque, will be testing boots together right out of the box. All in the name of testing, we are bringing you valuable info on new boots and how they perform from the very first wear.
There is more to come from this show and we have some ideas on how to improve. But, the star of the attraction turned out to be the boots, and a particular boot that is being talked about a lot of late – the Diadora DD NA GLX 14. Once you get past the strange name and slightly obscure colors used in the range, they actually have a list of fine characteristics about them. Diadora has never really focused on lightweight before, so this release comes pretty much out of the blue. It weights in at 6.4oz and is a competitor to the likes of the Nike Vapor and Adidas F50 adiZero ranges. It might not match up in terms of stature, but there is definitely a lot of positives to take from this release.
In fact, I really think Diadora are setting a statement with this one, and players that end up testing them will be very surprised. Check out the entry video below and stay tuned for a full review of the DD NA GLX 14.
You can currently find both colorways listed over on soccer.com.
Final short note to clarify something, the name of the boot is the Diadora DD NA. The end part of GLX 14 stands for the soleplate and the stud configuration used!
