Thread: 1970's swivel stud football boots

  1. #1

    Default 1970's swivel stud football boots

    I know Alan Ball and a few other wore white hummel football boots in the early 70's, but does anyone remember the brand who produced the football boots with the circular dial at the front of the boot that was supposed to allow you to swivel without the studs moving.

    They were endorsed by Alan Hinton of Derby County around 1970/71, but disappeared soon after release due to the amount of injuries they caused to ankle ligaments.

    I have trawled the net and can only find reference to them but know pictures or brand name.

    I think Patrick made some like this as well.

    Certainly Kevin Keegan mentions in his autobiography that he tried some swivel stud boots but didn't like them, & that Patrick was his perferred brand of boot.

    I'm possibly mixing 2 different things up there.

    Hi Lord K,

    I still actually have a pair of these Boots in question. Only played in them once (Tried to).

    They were a prototype sort of Boot that never really took off. (Think Hummel had a bit to do with these also as well as Tuf.

    Will try and get a pic of them and try to load up on here for you.

    Regards

    Wilf

    I was the film cameraman for an advert for these boots.
    Below is me filming the advert.

    For a bit of interest
    The person on to the left of me is Dave Martin and the person to the right of me is Bob Baker, they both became famous for writing for Dr Who.

    I was only talking with my mates in the pub on Saturday about these and they all thought I was making it up! They are all the same age as me (47ish) and was really surprised that they didn't remember! Really like a picture of the sole of these to show them I'm was not imagining them! Any help appreciated!

    Funny that, I was in a pub on Saturday & some guy called Ian was banging on about these boots & I thought he was making it up too.
