Don’t adjust your screen – this is actually a boot that has the potential to reach market in the next few months!
The brand is called Serafino and the boot is called 4th EDGE. The bizarre idea is to provide players with a 4th lethal kicking surface, other than instep, lateral and laces. Right now, there is a Kickstarter campaign in action, where Serafino is trying to raise funds to launch the boots. If you get involved and back the project for $134 (like 48 people have done to date), you could be one of the first players wearing a pair!
Rather than trying to talk you through the specifics of the boots, here is a brief synopsis of what they have on offer as well as the Kickstarter video that describe in better detail what they are all about. Plus you get to see players wear them in action. Harry Redknapp, who likes the added weapon of a harder toe, and Garth Crooks, who thinks strikers toe-poking the ball is where they will be most useful, are the high profile personalities drafted in to help with the fundraising campaign. As crucial a part of the game the big-toe punt is, I’m not sure that designing a boot just to compliment a hoofer is a very wise idea!
Give it a read, let the visual images and informal video run through your mind, give it a few minutes, then hit the comments with what you think of this revolutionary concept boot!
