Mexican brand Charly are back with another finely crafted soccer cleat design: the Charly Encore RL, which stands for Recycled Leather. This is actually the brands first soccer cleat made in Mexico from 100% Mexican leather, sourced from Cotexa Ecologia, a supplier of recycled leather in Guanajuato.
There are two reasons why you will want to consider these. First is that supple leather upper that you won’t find on any other release. Second is the fact the Encore is made of materials that are biodegradable, compostable and 100% recyclable. And a third – their $129.99 price tag makes them a competitive, affordable option.
“CHARLY’s Encore RL is made with premium leather and premium responsibility. Those characteristics stand out, but so does the story. The green accent color on the cleat pays homage to the leather tanneries of León, whose aprons would be dyed green over time due to the process. The green color is intricately tied with the region and the soccer team’s local nickname, the Green Bellies. With the Encore RL, CHARLY beautifully pairs rich heritage with high performance.” – Managing Director of CHARLY USA, Jason Wells.
When it comes to performance on pitch, underfoot you will find a conical stud design, which is built to enhance the athlete’s charge of direction on both FG and turf surfaces. Cut cleaner and faster with or without the ball. Additionally, the Encore features a high-compression tongue made of MotionKnit technology. This provides an ultra-plus fit while playing the beautiful game.
Charly is a Mexican sportswear brand that specializes in the production and distribution of soccer equipment, apparel, and accessories. The company was founded in 1949 and has since become one of the most recognizable and trusted names in the Mexican sports industry.

You mentioned that the supple leather won’t be found on any other release, is that just for this boot or in comparison to other brands. Is this like the NB 4-4-2 situation where the gold version was the best version?
