First impressions

Whether you enjoy playing football or rugby you will either be the guy in the plain black boots or the brightly coloured ones. When players are young they often like to have brightly coloured boots because they stand out and black is just a plain and boring colour. These days you see lots of professional footballers in brightly coloured boots because they ensure the brands sponsoring them will be easily noticed. I must admit I don’t mind the plain black boots because they are easy on the eye, but I do enjoy choosing brightly coloured boots, like what we have here.

These boots are from the Adidas brand and are called ‘11Questra’. The boots have moulded blades for grip, and they are mainly turquoise with a bright orange collar around the ankles. You could say that the colours clash, but these are bright boots and that is the whole point. The traditional Adidas stripes run down the sides of the boots, and the white leather adds another colour in to the mix. Some will love the look of these boots, though most will probably hate them.

My experience

When I think about it I must admit that this colour combination is not going to be hugely popular. The reason for this is that it won’t match many football kits, and it will stand out a mile against football socks because I cannot think of many teams that play in either orange or turquoise.

The studs are moulded and this has taken off and is rather popular. I don’t mind the screw-in studs but the blades can be easier to keep clean. The laces match the main colour of the boots, though if you need to replace them in time then you might have difficulty finding any that match the turquoise.

It is worth remembering that these are Adidas branded boots, and we are therefore going to expect high quality. The stitching in turquoise lends in well, though the bright orange stitching really works well on the top of the foot. It is small details like this that make these an attractive boot, and a textured surface on the top of the foot is achieved, giving more grip on the ball when you make contact for those shots.

I do prefer playing football in the summer for obvious reasons, but when it is cold these boots keep my feet warm. It might seem odd, but even with thick socks on your feet can be cold, and the thick soles might restrict movement a bit, but my feet are comfortable with these boots on, and this is one selling point. To the heel of the boot we have a point that is very important. Around the back of the ankle is where the boots can easily rub, and it is therefore important you wear your thick socks when trying these on. Tight boots will rub and cause you problems, and if you are wearing them for a few hours a week this can still be a problem. The last thing you want during a match is to be limping around on boots that are tight on your feet.

The boots lace up easily, and although I loosen the boots up a fair bit before slipping them on they have a small enough tongue that doesn’t get in the way or slither down onto my metatarsals during the game. These are good looking boots, but they are just as much about comfort

Price and availability

Expect to pay anywhere from £20 to £40 for these boots. Prices vary so much because some stores are looking to move older stock on to make way for new lines, though the boots are well worth their higher price. Always shop around and there are no excuses, especially online.

Final thoughts

Although you might not like the colour combination on these boots there are a number of other colours you can opt for. There are even plain black boots with a bright orange stripe down the middle, so there will be something to suit your style. As a pair of football boots they are stylish but also comfortable. I have only worn these a handful of times in the summer and have not had them on recently, but they will last a few years if taken care of. Kids need to buy new boots regularly as their feet grow and so quality doesn’t matter too much. When you get a bit older and your feet stop growing and you have to pay adult prices you want them to last.
