DJ-5 Sports – Review of a football boot brand

DJ-5 Sports – Skill Enhanced Football Boots

DJ-5 Sports is an english football boot company based in the Midlands, offering a range of skill enhanced football boots to help bend, control and swerve the ball.

The football boot company was founded in 1983 when Jack Danks designed the ‘Eagle football boot‘. The concept behind the ‘Eagle’ was to introduce a football boot which incorporated rubber in the instep and outside of the boot, enabling a player to have more control and the ability to bend and swerve a ball. An idea originally inspired by the idea of how a table tennis bat enables a player to bend and swerve a ping pong ball.


Twenty years later and under the tutelage of John Danks, Jack’s son, DJ-5 launched a new range of football boots based on the original ‘Eagle’ design concept. The range of DJ-5 football boots include the ‘Lightning’, ‘Phoenix’ and ‘Stealth’.


All three boot models are made from PU upper and incorporate rubber skill assistance pads which claim to help enhance a players performance enabling them to have more control and the ability to bend, control and swerve the ball. DJ-5 football boots are available in moulded, blades and screw in studs, as well as astroturf trainers, and are thus suitable for all conditions. DJ-5 football boots retail at £29.99 and therefore sit in the low end price bracket in the football boot market.
