KIPSTA 3D AIR MESH TECHNOLOGY: GET THE SLOWDOWN
Because good passing starts with feeling good in your football boots, we created the Kipsta 3D Air Mesh technology.
It is more comfortable, provides better ball feel, more durable, and makes your boot more breathable.
The forefoot (the part most in contact with the ball) of our Viralto III football boots is made with this technology, offering excellent ball feel.
ECO-DESIGN: WHAT DOES THIS MEAN AT DECATHLON?
To determine a theoretical life span for our products, we go through a rigorous procedure of lab tests and long lasting trials on the pitch to compare products of the same type, used for the same purpose. By identifying any weak points, we can improve the product design in order to prolong its theoretical life span.
This approach enabled us to increase the life span by 35% compared with the average life span of a family of products.
FLEX-H AND DUAL HARDNESS TECHNOLOGIES: WHAT ARE THEY?
In order to provide you with optimum flexibility for sudden changes of direction and push-offs, mad dashes and between-the-lines passes, we use the following two technologies: The first, Flex-H, on the front of the outsole, allows the sole to bend following the shape of a horizontal "H". The second, Dual Hardness, combines TPU with different hardness properties, providing more flexibility or support depending on the targeted zone.
THE IMPORTANCE OF CUSHIONING ON TURF FOOTBALL BOOTS: HIGH PERFORMANCE EVA KALENSOLE® FOAM
Because turf (stabilised) football boots are designed for play on hard pitches, they are made with cushioning that absorbs shocks. For the Viralto III, we chose nothing less than the best! This is why we use exclusive high performance EVA Kalensole® foam.
Advantages: +35% greater cushioning; +25% energy restitution; increased durability; greater stability when exposed to changes in temperature.
"SAFE CARE": FOOTBALL BOOTS THAT PUT YOUR FEET FIRST: DO THEY EVEN EXIST?
We designed these football boots together with a podiatrist specializing in sports and professional football. Together, we designed and validated the various technologies and concepts used in these football boots.
For example, when creating the outsole, the number of studs, their rounded shape, and their positions on the boot, were specifically researched and designed to ensure the best balance of grip and comfort.
"OPTIMAL STRIKE ZONE": WHAT IS IT FOR?
We enlarged the main surface area that makes contact with the ball by placing the laces in an asymmetric line. The axis along which the laces are placed was shifted to the outside by 10 degrees to provide you with a larger sweet spot for controlling, passing and striking the ball.
There's nothing to hold you back from showing off your best moves! Say goodbye to missed dribbles, close-but-not-quite passes, and strikes that land in the stands. Your coach and team members will be delighted!
WANT TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO WEAR A VIRALTO III FOOTBALL BOOT? LET'S TAKE A TOUR.
These football boots are the result of a multitude of choices all made with a single goal: create one of the most comfortable and highly technical football boots on the market!
3D Air Mesh upper on the forefoot, foam and imitation suede lining on the heel, preshaped insole with Poron® pads and anti-chaffing coating. Lastly, a next-gen knit collar that is very elastic and hugs the foot closely during play.
Viralto is our all new product line!
We created no fewer than 4 new models of this football boot, all focused on comfort and flexibility. Two models are in leather, and two are in synthetic materials. Each model has its own set of advantages depending on your expectations, requirements, and budget.
These models are available with an FG, MG, SG or Turf (TF) outsole.
So no more excuses on the pitch for not controlling the ball and squashing the opposition!
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR VIRALTO III FOOTBALL BOOTS
Do you have a habit of leaving your mud-clogged boots in your bag after training and then pulling them out again just before the next session? STOP!!!
To continue to enjoy your boots, you have to put in the time. Like any boot, they require a minimum of care.
TURF (TF), MOULDED (FG), SCREW-IN (SG); A LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT FOOTBALL BOOT SOLES
The VIRALTO III are available in 4 sole variants: TF, FG, MG, SG. These refer to the type of pitch you play on: - TF (Turf or stabilized): rubber sole for hard synthetic or slate pitches. - FG (Firm Ground): the famous "moulded" TPU studs made for natural or synthetic grass- MG (Multi-Ground): hollow studs designed for use on hybrid pitches.
- SG (Soft Ground), for soft or muddy pitches with a hybrid sole that has 6 screw-in studs.
