Have you ever noticed the amount of boot options we currently have in the US and how many new releases hit the market each week? When I started blogging, there were only a few boots I would have to write about each month but now there seems to be a new boot released daily and to be quite frank I find it difficult at time to keep up! If you follow SC101, you get all the details on new releases but not insights into what the real deal with these companies is. So, a few weeks back I shared my thoughts on specific companies with our email subscribers and it got a fantastic response. As a result, here is a slightly more expanded version with details on where each company currently sits and what the future holds for each.Read More »
What's With This Colorway?
There seems to be a craze with Yellow releases of late and Adidas has added another option in the form of this Predator LZ. But where others stick with moderate shades of detailing, Adidas incorporate and tasty splash of Vivid Pink. All-in-all, there is a lot of Vivid going on with this one. The fade from Yellow to Black on the side of the boot creates an interesting shade of Gold. Personally, I'm going to stick it out with other recent colorway releases over this flamboyant effort!
So, what makes the new Predator so different from previous editions? On this release, you get 5 different areas where technology has been employed, producing 5 different levels of performance. Rather than being a Power boot, this latest release is more of a hybrid that offers players more control right throughout their game.
What's With This Colorway?
We now have another pretty iconic colorway to choose from in the F50 adiZero range. The mix of Dark Blue/Vivid Pink gives a very Lionel Messi look to it, although it is Bastian Schweinsteiger who has been the one to break news on their release. It is the splash of Vivid Pink that gives it a unique look, something I am sure a lot of players will actually like since it creates a prominent dimension to the boot.
This is the fourth colorway we have seen in the latest version of the F50 adiZero. The biggest difference between this release and previous adiZeros is a 3D textured pattern on the SprintSkin upper, designed to elevate performance in all weather conditions.

What's With This Colorway? It seems like a long time since we have seen a release from Umbro, but this week we have been introduced to 2 extremely dramatic new colorways in the GT2 Pro range. And if they were trying to make a statement as in "Umbro is back", then they certainly have! On this occasion, I'm not sure that the Neon Orange/Black/Neon Green mix is going to create the reaction they were looking for!Read More »

This is a pretty fantastic new colorway release in this years Puma King range. There is nothing better than a classic Black leather upper, and when you add some smooth Silver detailing, it just makes things extra fascinating. Initial reaction to the new King has been mixed, primarily because of the change in upper material, but I'm not going to be one to complain with such a traditional looking boot. Officially listed as a Black/Black/PUMA Silver.Read More »

What's With This Colorway? Adidas has released this new blinging Metallic Silver/Black/Joy Blue colorway and I have no doubt that they are going to attain a pretty immediate following! Released with a leather upper, this is a boot that will sell strong despite the lower ranging signature Adidas 3-stripe. What I like most about these is the mix of Black and Joy Blue detailing on the primary Silver upper. No doubt, the Silver takes center stage but the Joy Blue adds a very dynamic energy and full-flavored spirit.Read More »
