Every once in a while a new brand comes around and tries to break into the highly competitive football boot market. Boombah are an American company that have just released their Matrix line of football boots, the Matrix Digital and the Matrix.
The cheaper of the two boots, the Matrix Digital, isn’t what we’d call a conservative looking boot. Featuring a “paint-splashed” design and some seriously bright colourways, these boots will most certainly stand out on pitch. The upper of the Matrix Digital is a synthetic called Ultra-Lux. Ultra-Lux is meant to lightweight and is meant to provide the wearer with a great touch. Both boots have off-centered lacing, a feature which maximizes the strike zone on the boot.
The full length TPU outsole has multi directional studs designed for quick penetration and release. While the Matrix Digital are a light boot, weighing in at 8.3 ounces, they’re still some way off the super light boots we’ve come to expect from other bigger brands.
The top of the line, Matrix, is identical to the Matrix Digital in all but the composition of the upper. The Matrix features the Ultra-Lux synthetic upper along with spongy rubber zones that are meant to be improve shot accuracy and you first touch. Because of the upper features more than just a synthetic layer, the Matrix are slightly heavier than the Matrix Digital and tip the scales at 9.1 ounces.
