Soccer shoes entered a new century taking on a life its own. 1901 was met with the legendary Shurekik Boota with fluted toecap made from the skin of russet calf. In 1925, makers began to include removable studs to the boot design. The studs, some removable & some not, have come along way since 1925. The studs are what make Soccer Cleats. Without studs,soccer cleats would have very little traction. Nike has Nike Elite soccer cleats and Adidas has the Adidas F50 AdiZero soccer cleats There is no doubt that soccer cleats have helped players perform at their max!!
