As all the weekend action is taking place, I've ordered a pair of Nike Bomba Finale turf shoes, and I'll be reviewing them when they arrive. In case you're interested, I've ordered them from Kitbag, it's the first time I try them out, and so far they've been excellent!
While I've never had or used a pair of turf shoes, considering that my team will be practicing on turf for the rest of the season, and we often play on the artificial surface, I thought it would be a good idea to invest in some proper footwear!
I'm really looking forward to trying them on, mainly because of their really cool looking features, like the pass pad (inspired by the CTR 360 range), and the shot shield (inspired by the T90 range). The pass pad looks really cool with the hexagonal design which is supposed to allow for a better first touch, by dampening the impact of the ball. The shot shield on the other hand is supposed to help keep your shots low and hard, so that you don't blast the ball into the stands next time you're in front of the goalkeeper.
If you have any experience with these cleats, or turf cleats, please share your thoughts by commenting below! And what do you think of the cleats? Do you think the pass-pad and the shot shield actually make a difference, or are they just gimmicks? I'll find out in the review which will be up sometime soon!
Here's a video of me unboxing them, they've just arrived, and I'll have the review up in a couple of weeks!
