Football boots are expensive and they've become increasingly so through the years. Why? I imagine this is a question a lot you are asking and if you're one of them, you'll get an answer or two right here.

I could go on about the economic process of inflation and how that has influenced consumer prices and therefore the price on football boots, but it surely hasn't been the main driver. What has then? Football boots have seen a steady increase in prices over the years and that can of course be attributed to the increase in technological elements applied to the boots - both in the process of making them and on the finished products.
