Athletic foot wears are primarily designed for sports or other forms of physical exercise, but in recent years it has come to be used for casual everyday activities. Attributes of an athletic shoe include a flexible sole, appropriate tread for the function, and ability to absorb impact. As the industry and designs have expanded, the term “athletic shoes” is based more on the design of the bottom of the shoe than the aesthetics of the top of the shoe. The World Cup fever is always on the players to perform so they should be comfortable while playing.
Adidas has formed a better range of shoes for the World Cup. Adidas’ Battle range is a great many shades more tasteful than the usual garish hues seen pumping up and down Premier League pitches. These are the kind of boots that make you want to lace up and thump a ball.
Aimed at the summer’s Brazilian festivities and the World Cups, the Battle pack sees five of Adidas’ high-end boots receive an aggressive color overhaul. The black and white design of the adizero f50, predator, nitrocharge, 11pro and adizero f50 Messi are apparently inspired by the warpaint of native warriors and the iconic pavement patterns of ancient Mesopotamia, perfected on the Copacabana beach. Besides the splash of color from the stripes, each colourway uses an even split of black and white (with the exception of the f50 Messi, which sneaks some blue in there for an Argentine theme).
World Cups tournament call for specific footwear to protect feet and ankles. Sports-specific athletic shoes are a wise investment for serious athletes, though perhaps a less critical consideration for the weekend or occasional athlete; nevertheless, it’s a good idea to use the correct shoe for each sport. Probably a more important consideration is the condition of the shoe—don’t wear any sport or other shoes beyond their useful life.
Athletic footwear should be fitted to hold the foot in the position that’s most natural to the movement involved. For example, a running shoe is built to accommodate impact, while a tennis shoe is made to give relatively more support and permit sudden stops and turns. For sports, “cross trainers” are fine for a general athletic shoe, such as for physical education classes. But if a child is involved more heavily in any single sport, he or she should have a shoe specifically designed for that sport.
