I haven’t posted a Cleats of the Week blog post in quite some time (March 2013 in fact!), so for those of you who might wonder what makes a pair of cleats, Cleats of the Week, here is a short explanation. I’m not looking to highlight the most expensive pair of boots, or the boots that might be in the news, or have just been released with a new colorway. I’m looking to highlight boots that I think deserve a shout out, and from time-to-time, it might be a pair of boots from a brand that you may not be familiar with. Okay, so that’s the explanation over, now on to the boots!
I picked the Joma Super Copa Speed cleats for Cleats of the Week because there’s been a lot of attention given to the big brand names and their power brand of boots lately, and I think it’s time to highlight a lesser known brand, and a brand that will give soccer players a reason to check them out. The Super Copa Speed, like it’s name suggests, is designed for the speed players, such as wingers, full-backs, or strikers. The Super Copa is also the lightest Joma cleat on the market weighing in at just 7.08oz.
The cleats have the following features:
- Ultralight Microfiber for a comfortable fit
- The Joma Super Copa Speed upper is covered with a honeycomb touch pattern to improve ball control. Many brands have implemented a honeycomb or dimple pattern on the upper to help players with their first touch, and the Super Copa Speed are no different.
- Low profile lacing and tongue system keeps weight to a minimum
- Longer heel studs to help create stability and increase traction
If you want to find out more about the Joma Super Copa Speed, you can check them out at Soccer.com – they cost a very reasonable $74.99. Do you wear these? Let everyone know what you think of them by leaving a comment!
