Reebok are a brand that just keep on ticking over, making quality boots with minimal fuss.
While the big brands are battling it out over marketing rights and advertising time at the World Cup, just tick over and keep developing quality football boots.
So, whenever the Bolton-Based boot business unveil a new pair of football boots, we’re always excited to see what’s on offer.
The Reebok Instante Pro II has one feature that everyone will be talking about – a customisable fit.
How does this work? Well, it sounds kind of crazy – but hear us out!
The Reebok Instante Pro II utilises Reebok’s new U-Form technology. To activate this, you warm the boots through in an Oven (we told you it was crazy!) to about 93 degrees. At which point the U-Form Logo in the heel will change colour and indicate the boots are ready for moulding.
Now, you put your feet into the boot and relax for 8 minutes.
The idea being that, the lining and some of the components in the upper become more malleable at that temperature so they’ll bend around the contours of your foot. Then, as the boot cools, the materials set into position around your feet – giving the Reebok Instante Pro II a completely custom fit!
Reebok also say this process can be performed upwards of 50 times – meaning that you could do this process every week in a season for a completely ‘Pro’ experience!
Other features included on the Reebok Instante Pro II football boots include:
Soft microfibre upper for light weight throughout the game.
Water-resistant, but breathable microfibre, providing great comfort.
U-Form technology gives the perfect fit, customized to each player™s foot shape.
TPU frame allows the player to dribble at speed, without the ball getting stuck behind them, particularly in hot weather.
3-dimensional logo printing ensures minimal weight addition to the boot.
Off-centre lacing and short tongue reduces weight, but gives an optimum fit during the game.
External heel counter provides extra heel protection and stability, together with an on-field identity.
Anatomical Last for the perfect fit.
Power Unit outsole ensures a limited loss of power when striking the football.
Re-inforced, carbon fibre, composite insert, in the forefoot, provides energy-loading when running and minimal loss of power when kicking the football.
Full-length Ortholite sock-liner, with a high density, Ortholite cushioning pad in the heel area.
Soft Ground (SG) thermo-polyurethane outsole with 6 removable studs for use on soft ground
Hard Ground (HG), thermo-polyurethane outsole with 13 conical and elliptical studs for use on firm or hard grounds.
All sounds pretty exciting, right?
We’ve heard that the Instante Pro II will also be available in some serious wild colours – and this Pure Silver/Echo Blue/Blue Cadet is a tame colour scheme in comparison to what’s coming up!
