Kelme Football Boots
Kelme, a Spanish manufacturer of football boots and running shoes, was founded by Diego and José Quiles in 1977. The company is currently based in Elche, a town in Spain’s Alicante province.
Over the last thirty years, the firm has grown substantially and it now has offices and branches worldwide. Kelme football boots have been very popular with professional footballers – a reflection of the manufacturer’s high standards and continued attention to detail in all aspects of the production process. Players who have worn Kelme boots include the popular La Liga and Liverpool right back, Josemi and the RCD Mallorca footballer, Daniel Gonzalez Guiza, who wears the Kelme Master boot. These days, however, Kelme is involved in a lot more than the manufacture of sports footwear. Between 1980 and 2006, the company sponsored a cycling team which went on to win a number of European titles.
Here’s the lowdown on some of the latest offerings from Kelme.
- Kelme Tiburon Stealth – Shark Skin – TRX Firm Ground Football Boots
- Kelme Tiburon Stealth – Shark Skin – PU Firm Ground Football Boots
- Kelme Tiburon Stealth SI Soft Ground Football Boot
The Kelme Tiburon Series features some of the most innovative creations from this world-class designer. The Kelme Tiburon Shark Skin range is aimed at professional and elite players. The Tiburon is the first boot to have ever been manufactured from untanned shark skin.
Shark skin is one of the toughest materials from which one could fashion a football boot. Some estimates suggest that it is 7 to 11 times stronger than standard leathers. Dermal denticles, small, crisscrossing teeth-like structures in the shark skin, give this boot its added strength. According to retailers, these denticles make these boots “as strong as concrete and as tough as steel.” In addition, the rough texture of shark skin means that these boots allow for increased traction.
You’ll also find that these superior boots are water-repellent and substantially lighter than other football boots currently available on the market. The TRX firm ground boot comes with an outsole that is designed to maximise surface contact and features “biomechanically engineered” stud placement. A soft ground version of this boot is also available and prices for all boots start at around £100. Given its formidable specification, it’s hardly surprising that few users have complained about the Kelme Tiburon Stealth series.
- Kelme Infinito Traction Football Boots
The Kelme Infinito is another example of a top of the range boot from this Spanish company. It is manufactured from extra-supple Kangaroo leather. The area around the interior vamp comes with a number of ball-control centres which allow for improved ball passing and handling. The latest versions of the Kelme Infinito also feature a redesigned outsole to maximise grip and traction. Kelme Infinito Traction Football Boots are designed for use on firm ground, Astroturf and other artificial surfaces. This boot also comes with a classic black and white exterior that is unlikely to go out of fashion. The Kelme Infinito is primarily aimed at professional players.
