Field guide final draft

  1. 1. Field Guide to Types of Soccer Shoes Conditions: Highly versatile due to inter-changeable cleats & thus set to play on nearly ever surfice. Changing from metal to plastic taking only a series of minutes.The metal cleat allowing you to have better grip on, very wet sufaces, muddy. Metal cleats dig in to nearly any type of surface. This provides the wearer with better friction, and better traction. Gives players ability to focus on running faster. Which allows you to engage in stop-and-go running, which is the key of soccer. Weight/Material: M ercurial Superfly II Elite Series. Coated with carbon fiber. Weight of shoe 5.3 oz. Makes running feel like your running barefoot. Creates absolute agility. Weight gives ability to glide on field. Outdoor(removable cleats) Mecurial Superfly II Series Customization: Possibilities endless. Customization from outside to inside. Interchangeable cleats(metal,plastic, none), to suit all playing conditions. Shoe color any color possible, Nike logo, can be changed(any color). Laces removed and changed.

Targeted Towards: Originally made for the professional use only, is avaible for all well experienced players aswell. Price: Varies from $249.99-400.00 (depends on customization) *some information used from Nike.com
  2. 2. Mercurial Superfly II History: Mercurila Superfly II, traced back to as early as 1998, debuted by Ronaldo(famous soccer star). Shoes originally released in black. In 1998 World Cup, a silver/blue/yellow version was released. All shoes made in Soft Ground and Firm Ground. Soft ground version with removable studs. The Mercurial’s became the first shoe series Nike ever made using synthetic materials. It was their first attempt to design the light weight shoe, to increase speed. My Experience: Owning two pairs, older version F50’s that I have worn as oppose to the the Mercurials, I can see the difference immensely. Having the Mecurial’s made with ultra-thin synthetic outer layer, enhances the preciseness of ball control with speed. It allows a better grip, and better accuracy for shooting. *some information used from Nike.com
  3. 3. Field Guide to Types of Soccer Shoes Weight/Material: 1800’s Soccer Boots, first cleats made out of work boots, with round metal plate at toe. Work boots had 6 metal studs or tacks hammered in. Boots with heavy weight leather. Weight Approximation 500g=17.6369 oz, a little over triple the amount of shoes today. Cleats going up past ankle for increased protection. Cleats doubled in weight when wet. These key elements transforming a work boot into a cleat. Conditions : Though these shoes could be used virtually in any condition, some were more ideal than others. Since boots doubled weight when wet, rainy weather not ideal. Since this soccer shoe was out in the 1800’s, the likely hood of there being an indoor facility, not likely. Assuming the most perfect condition would be a sunny day, on firm ground. Customization: Virtually None. Can change laces. Usual standard colors(black/white). Boots usually either a leather color, or black leather. Cleats either metal plates or tacks. Targeted Towards: Factory workers, royalty, anyone that enjoyed soccer as past time 1800’s Soccer Boot Price: N/A *some information used from footy-boots.com
  4. 4. 1800’s Soccer Boots History: King Henry VI, got his fist custom soccer shoes in 1526. This is the earliest dated back soccer cleat. Though there is no recorded data of the King Henry VI cleats, they do resemble cleats of 1800’s, the earliest recorded shoe. King Henry VI played soccer as a past time. Though King Henry did not in event soccer, he was known to be the first to own soccer cleats. My Experience: Having been born in the 90’s, I was not able to try this type of shoes. I could assume that this boot would not be a favorable shoe to me, being used to soccer cleats under 7oz. Tripling the amount would not work in my favor. Soccer shoes now, are not completely over the ankle. This design seems uncomfortable. *some information used from footy-boots.com

  6. 6. Nike Total 90 Shoot lii Turf History: Nike Total 90 brand was introduced 2000. Shoes first designed for American Football and later transformed to fit soccer athletes. The Total 90 brand name, standing for the standard 90 minutes traditionally played in a soccer game. The player wearing the shoe representing the 'Total 90' persona. This persona being so important, reason for the “90” symbol in inside of shoe. The “90” is inside of you, its who you are. My Experience: Wore Nike Total 90 shoe, first year varsity soccer. One of most comfortable shoe, long lasting, immense grip, allowed for great shots. Customization allowed me to represent school colors. Shoe allowed me to go from practice to game, without troubles.

Shoe designed for lightening speed, fast dribbling, accurate control, one touch passing, as seen in street soccer. Street soccer elements becoming the key element to the overall design. Creating this newly improved indoor soccer shoe. My Experience: Provided perfect grip. Allowed me to play the fast pace one touch pass and go game, I am a custom too. Tacky dots creates firm grip. A bare foot feeling. Laces discrete and out of the way. Shoe moldable to foot, moves with foot. Great for accurate traps, and juggling.

Inspired by professional soccer stars, this design became ideal for children. Making shoe heavier than professional soccer shoes, instills patients and creates strengths in the younger players, so they can obtain all key elements of soccer. My Experience: As a younger player, aspiring to be Mia Ham. All I used to determine what shoe I wore was the color and my parents budget(affordable buy). From seeing videos of my ball control as a child, I believe shoe allowed for easy ball control. Allowed me to learn, basic elements of soccer. Shoe often came in pink, and as a little girl that was a key factor, in the shoe I would chose. *some information used from Nike.com
