About our Football Boot Review 2018:
Selecting the right football boots are vital to ensure they are not only comfortable but to reduce the risk of developing or exacerbating injuries.
At My FootDr, we want to help prevent all those frustrating problems and injuries people experience with incorrect fitting or unsuitable football boots. To help you find the right boot for your feet we have compared the most popular football boot styles from leading brands to help you decide on what’s the best fit for you.
Whether you play AFL, soccer, rugby or touch football, wearing the wrong boot can cause you injuries including blisters, corns, callus, neuromas, tinea pedis, turf toe, heel pain, ankle sprains, shin pain, calf strains, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon strains, knee pain and hamstring strains.
If you have any questions about your football boots or need help deciding on the right fit, get in touch with your local My FootDr podiatry clinic.
Our podiatrists can provide you with essential information and professionally check your foot type and previous or current injuries to ensure you choose the ideal football boots for you to maximise performance on the field.
How to ensure your football boots are correctly fitted:
1. Try on the boots prior to purchasing them to ensure comfort
2. Take your orthotics with you when trying on your boots as they may affect fit and comfort
3. Make sure you walk around in the boots for at least five minutes prior to buying to ensure no pain or discomfort
4. Try on the boots with the socks that you typically wear for football
5. Make sure there is one thumb width from the longest toe when standing
6. Make sure that the boots only bend at the toe area and not through the middle of the shoe
7. Make sure there is a firm heel counter for stability (test by squeezing the back of the heel)
