After two previous instalments that saw a reasonable player uptake, the Pele Sports 1970 football boots are back! SoccerBible is your only destination for an exclusive look at the new Pele football boots. Share your thoughts with the SoccerBible community online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
Pele Sports football boots are named after the World Cup tournament's in which Pele became a global phenomenon. The 1970 World Cup, where Pele most noticeably rose to prominence, saw Brazil dominate the tournament. Fittingly then, Pele Sports chose this momentous year to name their top-tier football boot.
Originally Pele Sports first foray into the boots market, the 1970 set out with a primary focus on premium quality. The upper consists of a one-piece kangaroo leather material, ensuring minimal stitching for a great fit. The kangaroo leather undergoes an incredible 150 separate processing steps before the final production stage to guarantee maximum quality.
When it comes to comfort and fit, the Pele Sports 1970 soccer shoes really excel. Attention has been firmly placed on crafting a shoe for all round quality. Although they're new to the boot market, the 1970's offer a retro feel with a comfort you'd usually associate with football boot classics!
Of course, so much premium leather means the boots sit firmly outside the speed boot weight range. The Pele Sports 1970 football boots tip the scales at 320g (11.3oz). The weight of the shoe has been sacrificed for comfort, but you certainly get a lot of classic retro boot for your money!
The quality of the upper is emphasised through the boots clean, classic design. The iconic Pele signature adorns the outside heel of the boot and tongue, coloured to match the stitching around the heel area. Modern design takes over the sole plate, with a dot matrix style print pattern made from number ''10s'' – the number made famous by Pele.
The Pele Sports 1970 football boots are offered in both fixed firm ground and traditional 6-stud soft ground sole plate options. No detail has been spared, with graphic attention given to each individual stud and the Pele signature also featuring on the outsole. The mid-sole also offers improved achilles tendon support through a 5mm raised heel area.
The new White/Yellow/Black Pele Sports 1970 football boots will be available to pre-order from early July and will retail worldwide for just £125 GBP / $170 USD / €145 EURO.
