As the frost melts and the rain falls this winter, football pitches all over the continent get softer, muddier and slippier.
Ever the innovators, Nike have altered the latest pair of their boots to cope with the seasonal conditions. The Premier 2.0, now with a soft ground Anti-Clog soleplate has become available in a Triple Red colourway.
The boots which take references from the popular Tiempo boots worn by the likes of Ronaldinho, sit on studs which tackle the mud and wet conditions perfectly, offering a genuinely effective solution to the problem.
With cup football being played during these wintery days, our pampered stars are heading to lower league football grounds where muddy penalty areas and slippy corner kicks are the norms, so these boots may have arrived just in time.
