It seems like a while since we have seen any new boots come through the pearly gates of Lotto Sports. Here in the US, it is actually tough to find any Lotto boots these days. But, it looks like they are back with a modernized laceless boot, already being introduced in Italy.
The next generation of Lotto Solista 100 Gravity has a fresh look and more importantly, updated knit materials through the collar. Lotto were the very first brand to introduce laceless soccer boots back in 2006, but they never got the performance right. It looks like they have taken some tips from the likes of Nike and adidas by using a more adaptive knit materials rather than tough, unpredictable rubber. Overall, the end result looks pretty promising, or at least much improved on previous generations.
We don’t know a whole lot about their availability in the US at this point, but we will update further if we hear anymore about them. For now, enjoy the really cool intro video below from FutbolEmotion. Even if you don’t speak Italian, they offer a really solid presentation that gives you a full 360 look at what is on offer!
Laceless? I am skeptical…
