Slip-on football boots
The new Zhero Gravity Ultra from Lotto Sport Italia are the only laceless football boot in the world (sic. a fad other manufacturers are likely to follow). According to the manufacturer the lightweight, laceless, Zhero Gravity Ultra fits the foot like a glove giving the wearer optimal sensitivity for controlling the ball. The concave flexible sole moves with the kinetic foot helping preserve energy and supports the foot. The stud formation again according to Lotto brings increases lateral stability to the foot ensuring an improved protection of the ankle. Strategic cushioning helps reduce impact forces and the boots are fitted with slightly larger Twist’ngo studs TM over the first metatarsal (base of the big toe) area. The pivoting stud allows the boot to efficiently follow any rotational movement made by the player. The upper of the boot is made from soft microfiber that guarantees the perfect fit to the shape of the foot. A firm heel counter helps anchor the foot in the boot and is joined to the Flexible Pebax © sole. The boot is available with different soles: SG (soft ground) with interchangeable studs for heavy and muddy grounds; FG (firm ground) with conical fixed studs that include the Twist’ngo system, for maximum stability and traction on grassy and dry surfaces. The laceless football boots are available in white, metal blue night, black, bright white.
