FOOTBALL players and fans alike are obsessed with the boots worn on the field.
From Jack Grealish's record-breaking boot sponsorship deal with Puma to the arms race between Nike and Adidas that has spanned decades, football boots are no laughing matter.
In fact, it is estimated the global industry for football boots will be worth almost £20billion by 2028, with each year seeing an average market growth of 5.4 per cent from 2022.
There are all type of boots from hard ground to artificial turf as well as no end to variations in style.
Weight is also a huge factor for many elite athletes who try to maximise marginal gains. So what about the size of the boot itself?
Some of the world's best players such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are famous cases of using small boots, with Ronaldo going for a fit SMALLER than his actual foot size.
