So how is the boot then? First and foremost we can’t underline enough, how big a deal it is that the boots are made entirely by hand. It means that right from the start, someone has been hands on with every single detail. It just gives a completely different quality, when football boots are made that way and it can be felt all the way through. All the way from the soft leather, to the ultra comfortable foam insole and the “Made in England” detailing on the side of the boot, as well as the packaging of the boot, which comes with leather balm and a shoe brush.
The sole comes from their Visaro boot, which is an indication that although this boot is limited to just 2.000 pairs and even though every little detail has been taken into account, they are not meant to be shelved. These are made for on-pitch action.
The New Balance MiUK ONE is visually not the most eye-popping boot ever and that’s a bit of a shame if you ask me, because if the eyes aren’t sold, then the rest of your senses need a lot of convincing. Believe me though, I have tried this boot in action now and this is premium quality all the way through. If you do have a good 250 euro to spend on leather boots, then this is truly in a league of its own.
