Here at SoccerBible, we're excited to introduce Brazilian brand Penalty and their signature speed shoe, the S11 Pro. Firmly established in the South American market, supplying elite teams across the continent including Vasco da Gama, we can finally welcome the only genuinely Brazilian football brand to Europe!
Combining new technologies and innovation, the Penalty S11 Pro are the world's first seamless boots, designed for the fastest, most technical players. Weighing just 190g, these handmade Brazilian S11 Pro boots are the latest name in the speed game.
Proud to be 100% Brazilian, Penalty was founded in 1970 by Grupo Cambuci who take their name from the Sao Paulo neighbourhood where they started in 1945. Created with dedication and effort and with a touch of typically Brazilian Ginga flair, this same approach remains at the heart of Penalty's ongoing quest for technical innovation and growth.
The Penalty S11 Pro features a lightweight and flexible Tenvis microfibre upper and revolutionary Termotec construction. Where the Penalty S11 Pro sets itself apart from other speed boots is in its unique construction. In the S11 Pro, Penalty have developed the world's first seamless cleat.
For lightweight speed boots, brands use the familiar method of fabric stitching to hold the shoe together. For the Penalty S11 Pro, the Brazilian brand use an exclusive Termotec technology which thermally bonds the shoe together – a process similar to elite level match balls. The technology is 100% waterproof, allowing the boot to maintain the same weight under extreme conditions.
The Penalty S11 sole-plate blends TPU and Nylon to create a super lightweight chassis. The lightweight Celeron outsole allows for rapid speed with high levels of durability.
Across the forefoot the Penalty S11 Pro employs a highly-resistant PolyUrethane coating. This Aracnun texture zone is a pliable material with a non-slip textured finish where you need it most. The material allows for increased friction and spin when deploying shots and strikes, while also adding an improved feel for the ball in the toe and forefoot area.
Since launching their first football collection over forty years ago, Penalty has continually improved its profile through partnerships with Sao Paulo FC, who went on to win the Libertadores da America twice and the Brazilian Futsal Team who were world champions five times. The company now enter a new era, marked by the high profile signing of Barcelona keeper Victor Valdes.
The new Black/Blue/Silver Penalty S11 Pro football boots are available to pre-order now exclusively at Pro-Direct Soccer with a full release date set for September 1st. If you're looking to bag something different for this season, the Penalty S11 Pro will hit the European market priced at £110 GBP / $185 USD / €140 EURO.
