Football boots study shows blade danger

Stars at football’s World Cup who choose to wear boots with bladed cleats as opposed to the more traditional studs could be putting themselves at greater risk of injury, according to new research from the University of Dundee.

A study of the differing pressures placed on the foot found that bladed boots could be deemed relatively more harmful due to the unnatural increased loading under the lateral half of the foot.

“The additional pressures placed on that area of the foot predispose it to injury,” said Professor Rami Abboud, of the Institute of Motion Analysis and Research at the University of Dundee.

“Our study showed that studded boots can be considered safer as the pressure distribution across the foot and the pattern of pressure progression mimicked the normal motif, whereas the same was not true of bladed boots.”
