We’re all about variety here at Footy-Boots.com, especially when it comes to our football boots! And if there’s one brand we don’t see enough of, it’s got to be Asics.
But these stunning-looking White/Green/Black Lethal Tigreor III‘s caught our eye and we had to share them with you!
We’ve featured the Lethal Tigreor before here on Footy-Boots.com and gotten a great response from you guys; and rightly so! The Asics Lethal Tigreor III is a fantastic looking boot, but many of you didn’t like the translucent sole on with the original black colourway.
But here, coupled with a white leather upper, we definitely think that Asics are onto a winner. And if there’s one colour we don’t see enough of on football boots, it has to be green – which looks great used sparingly here on the classic Asics logo and heel counter.
Whilst many view Asics footwear as primarily for Rugby, there’s been many advocates of their football boots on the soccer pitch too, especially in Italy.
Players like Antonio Di Natale have been wearing their cleats for years, and have given the Japanese brand some real cult presence on the European continent.
Some of the best features of the Asics Lethal Tigreor III include a full K-Leather upper, Asics patented SoLyte soleplate, and a biomechanically enhanced in-boot design that raises the heel by 10mm over the toes to take the strain of the game off your lower back, calves and Achilles’ tendon.
We know that some of our readers will have seen these football boots for a couple of months now, as Asics gave them an early release in Japan, China, Australia and New Zealand but it seems that they’re slowly becoming available to so Euorpean retailers too – so keep a sharp eye out!
Do you share our enthusiasm for these football boots? Or are they not your cup of tea? Let us know!
Having your heel a whole centimeter above your toes seems like it would be awkward. like playing in running shoes. your feet my be jammed up against the front of the upper the whole game.
the heel raising makes sense, as you are more ‘on your toes’ so to speak.
Darren Fletcher has admitted recently that he has his heels raise in his AdiPures.
these are sickkkk
A huge Thumbs up to Asics. I was so interested in this “heel raise” that I have actually looked into it and it is a wonderful technology. It is hugely encouraged by podiatrists. I believe it is only a matter of time till giants like Nike and Adidas will implement this as well. It makes a whole lot of sense to have your heel higher than the toes.
You should naturally run on your toes so you don’t need a boot with a raised heel. Look up barefoot running or Zero drop and you will find heaps of information against it. I don’t know what’s wright or wrong but I prefer doing things naturally.
except as people get tired they revert to mid or rear-foot running (as you would running the distance you do as a midfielder at least)… and naturally….you shouldn’t use boots at all in your argument..
raising the heel is a really good deal. its why i always find playing in running shoes helps my mobility and turn of pace alot(but the running shoe would be destroyed).
any other solutions to raising the heels of our boots? heel gel pads perhaps?
I have worn the Asics Lethal DS (synthetic). They were one of the best boots I ever wore. You don’t really notice the heel is higher when you were them but you really notice it is missing when you step down to other brands like adidas or nike. It gives you a sprinters stance and they claim it reduces stress on your legs. I like it, but not sure if it actually does much.
these are over a year old….
the heel raise makes the chance of leg injuries way less
in australia these are last seasons model…http://www.asics.com.au/footwear/football-boots.aspx.. that site features the latest from asics
It is been a while since I don’t hear about Asics Football boots, but these new Lethal Tigreor III look mint. BTW what player’s are sponsored by ASICS?
I’m obsessed with classic boots…and remember when Gary McAllister and Gary Speed used to wear a pair of asics boots that cost around ÂŁ200 (this was in the early 1990s) because the leather was such fine quality – a precursor to the Testimonal boot, I believe.
They seem a million miles away from these boots!
Please, Please, Please where can you buy these? Prodirect
has the black boots–how about the white/green ones???
Any body know?
