The second evolution came in the mid-1950

Believe it or not the use of football <a href="http://www.newfootballboots2011.com/turf.html" title="Turf Soccer Shoes">Turf Soccer Shoes</a> dates back to Henry VIII of England. Her majesty ordered a pair from the Great Wardrobe in 1526, the royal shopping list stated: "45 velvet pairs and 1 leather pair for football". Since then football boots evolved to be an essential part of the game and nowadays they are made with high-materials such as carbon fibre and synthetic leather.

Just like football itself soccer cleats went through a lot changes over the years. Until 1891, studs, blades or any other kind of projection weren't allowed. After the 1891 revision, studs and bladders became "legal" as long as they were made of leather and weren't bigger than half an inch, this studs and blades were originally hammered into the boots and professional players at the time had several pairs with different length studs. I consider this as the first time football <a href="http://www.newfootballboots2011.com" title="new football boots">new football boots</a> evolved.

The second evolution came in the mid-1950s and it is also the most controversial. History says that during the 1954 in Switzerland, Adidas who was Germany's boot supplier kitted the Germans with the first screw-in-studs football boots ever seen. But recently Puma claimed that they were supplying screw in stud as early as 1952. Despite who invented screw in studs the point here is the that the second evolution was the invention of the screw in studs.

Despite the screw-in debate another revolution was going on at roughly the same time in history. Between 1950 and 1960 soccer cleats design took a huge step forward and boots really started to make an impact on the game. While in Northern Europe boots still had the ankle protection, main reason they are called "<a href="http://www.newfootballboots2011.com/nike-t90.html" title="Nike T90">Nike T90</a> ", South Americans created a more flexible and lighter boot without the ankle protection, a boot designed to increase control, improve kicking power and make players move faster and change direction quicker.

As the years passed technological advancements allowed manufacturers to produce lighter boots in a variety of colours and studs configurations. Highlights to the Puma King worn players like Pelé at the 1970 World Cup and to one of the best selling football boot to date, the Adidas Copa Mundial.

We can't talk about the evolution of football boots without mentioning Craig Johnston, creator of the Adidas Predator. Johnston revolutionised the football <a href="http://www.newfootballboots2011.com" title="new football boots 2011"title="new football boots 2011">new football boots 2011</a> market by creating a boot that provided more traction between ball and boot, and boot and the ground, the Adidas Predator was born. With greater contact areas, a series of power and swerve zones allowing players to create better swerves and more powerful strikes when hitting the so called "sweet spots". No wonder the Adidas Predator series are still in production these days.
