You Can Buy Football Boots For People Who ‘Toe Poke’
Back in my day, there was always that one guy at school who's nickname was 'Timmy' because he used to 'Timmy Toe Poke/Punt' the ball when attempting to shoot.
Whether it was from 6 yards or 30, this often wayward technique was regarded as a cardinal sin by coaches, but it generated a huge amount of power.
For years the toe poke left players with chipped nails and bruised bones but worry no more. Italian fashion designer John Serafino has created a pair of boots worthy of any Sunday League arena.
Get ready for your mind to be blown, people.
The Serafino 4th Edge football boot integrates a flat nose to give the user a perfect surface to wind up the perfect toe punt smash.
According to the Serafino website, the revolutionary rubberised concave toe enables players to perform with greater power, accuracy, safety and comfort while at the same time needing only minimal back lift when using the toe.
They go on to state that he boot is equipped with triple padding, and Ankle & Achilles heel supports.

As a matter of fact, this one-of-a-kind boot is more than just a toe punt merchants dream.
It is designed to reduce injuries particularly avoiding metatarsal, Ankle and Achilles heel injuries which have become an increasing problem in the game, as boots have got lighter and lighter.
Former Portsmouth and Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp even had good words to say about it, saying: "The toe is not used enough and with this harder toe it gives the player an extra dimension to get that shot off under pressure."
"It's an interesting boot."
