The Nomis Glove FG: designed to prevent injuries
Simon Skirrow is an Australian who claims to have designed a soccer boot called Glove FG that may protect athletes’ feet from those metatarsal injuries. Simon Skirrow previously worked with adidas, but now runs his own company called Nomis which has opened an outlet in Berlin called the Right Boot Store. Nomis according to the company’s website has been endorsed by the Governing body of the Professional Rugby League Players of Australia as their preferred football boots. As part promotion for the new range of kangaroo boots, Nomis has also commissioned an amusing new video called “Damn Boots” which lampoons celebrity endorsements to the apparent exclusion of safety.
