Sadly for many football players, there isn’t a pair of boots on the market that can come through a full season of intensive use (three to four training sessions a week) in good condition. But with its Incredible boots, Kipsta has come up with a solution to this age-old problem. The boot is the result of extensive work conducted by the brand’s R&D centre, which has been supported in its task by its suppliers, who are accustomed to working on luxury and automotive products.
Our design teams devised a unique manufacturing process to combat the problem of sole separation.
After contemplating the idea of a stitched sole, they decided to create a multi-layer boot, with a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) sole sandwiched between layers of TPU-reinforced fabric.
The sole is an integral part of the boot and not a component that is merely glued to the rest of it. This prevents it from separating from the upper. This unique process, which the brand has patented, makes use of cutting-edge shoe manufacturing technologies to create the Incredible.
One of the problems we encountered can be summed up as follows: how to create an ultra-hardwearing shoe that is still comfortable to wear? Though there are no similar boots on the market for comparison, footwear that claims to be hardwearing is often very rigid and not very comfortable.
With this particular boot, we have tried to respond to the needs of football players (feel, support, grip, etc), just as we would with a conventional boot, but with one key difference: with the Incredible, Kipsta has achieved the not inconsiderable feat of combining comfort with durability. As a result, you can play all season long and beyond with these boots, which are also lighter than the average boot on the market: 230g in a size 9.5.
