WHAT IS THE "OPTIMAL STRIKE ZONE"?
We enlarged the main surface area that makes contact with the ball by placing the laces in an asymmetric line. The axis along which the laces are placed was shifted to the outside by 10 degrees to provide you with a larger sweet spot for controlling, passing and striking the ball. There's nothing to hold you back from showing off your best moves! Say goodbye to missed dribbles, close-but-not-quite passes, and strikes that land in the stands. Your coach and team members will be delighted!
"SAFE CARE": FOOTBALL BOOTS THAT PUT YOUR FEET FIRST: DO THEY EVEN EXIST?
We designed these football boots together with a podiatrist specializing in sports and professional football. Together, we designed and validated the various technologies and concepts used in these football boots. For example, when creating the outsole, the number of studs, their rounded shape, and their positions on the boot, were specifically researched and designed to ensure the best balance of grip and comfort.
WANT TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO WEAR A VIRALTO I FOOTBALL BOOT? LET'S TAKE A TOUR.
These football boots are the result of a multitude of choices all made with the same goal: to make them the most comfy football boots at this price!
Soft upper on the forefoot, mesh fabric lining at the heel, preformed insole, wide tongue attached at the base that does not twist and keeps the foot snugly in place during play. A pronounced contour and raised back of the heel help support your foot and keep it nicely in place.
Viralto is our all new product line! We created no fewer than 4 new models of this football boot, all focused on comfort and flexibility. Two models are in leather, and two are in synthetic materials. Each model has its own set of advantages depending on your expectations, requirements, and budget. These models are available with an FG, MG, SG or Turf (TF) outsole. So no more excuses on the pitch for not controlling the ball and squashing the opposition!
