After a brief hiatus over the summer due to tryouts, as well as taking a break (yes, soccer coaches take, and need, a break), it’s time to get back into writing about soccer cleats, and what a great new product I have for this post.
I was recently contacted by Antti Tolvanen, who reached out via email to let me know about his new innovative soccer boot design – Inverted Sole. Whenever new boots are released, the technical specifications and updates are generally the item that gets talked about the most, whether its lighter, faster, stronger etc. – technology sells. However, some of those updates don’t live up to expectations. I’m sure you’ve all experienced putting on a soccer boot and have wondered what all the fuss was about..
Not with the Inverted Sole.
Football (soccer) players around the world have been looking for ways to increase traction during the game for many years.
Inverted Sole allows players to be more effective, they can grip more easily to the playing surface, make quick turns, judge their speed better and have better balance.
The Inverted Sole comes with a revolutionary new design. The Inverted Sole is attached to the sole of the boot.
Hard Ground mode gives similar reach to all of the studs in the heel area.
Soft Ground mode, as you might imagine, allows the reach of the studs to be greater, and offers more traction when playing on soft surfaces.
The genius of the Inverted Sole is that it can be placed into multiple areas of the soleplate, while retaining the contours of a regular soccer cleat. For more information about the Inverted Sole, check out the video below to watch Product Developer, Antti Tolvanen, give a brief demo of the boot.
