“Football is war” (Rinus Michels, former trainer of the Dutch national football team). So you better be prepared when you go on the pitch, and be firmly planted in your football shoes. But football is also a celebration, and at a celebration the last thing you need is sore feet.
Whether you play football like a warrior, or gracefully dance around the field, usually your football shoes are designed to offer better ball control, not to protect your feet. This is why you have an increased risk of foot injuries which don’t manifest themselves until later in life. Football shoes don’t provide an immediate solution to overpronation or supination of the feet. In the long term this can have severe consequences for your ankles and knees, but also for your hips and lower back.
