Professor Mauro Testa has introduced a new innovation in soccer boots by Lotto.
"I think it is important that the sole of the shoe can describe the function of the athlete. Twist'n'Go is a very simple concept with revolving studs...

In the area of the first metatarsus. This area is very important when you change directions. When you change directions. you put all of your weight here. Normally, it is a third part of your force. So this will reduce negative friction from the foot to the ground when you change direction...

Having this stud, you are able to overcome the negative resistance of the ground. In this way, you are protected from injury."

Addressing the Injury Concern of Lighter Shoes

This is a very interesting development. New shoe technologies have been both positive and negative. The newer boots are much lighter than in years past, but at the expense of increased foot and other related injuries. This new shoe by Professor Testa may provide players with comfort, lightness, increased mobility, along with the added bonus of injury protection.

Please let me know what you think about this new technology.

The metatarsus comprises five bones in the foot. Professor Testa designed his shoe with the first bone in mind.
