Some people only have the one pair of football boots. But other more dedicated fans will have lots of pairs to keep looking good. So if this is you, where do you keep them and how do you make sure they are always looking their best?
If you are taking a pair of football boots out with you but you aren’t wearing them straightaway, you should consider buying a bag to keep them in. You can buy these from all kinds of places both online and offline, although of course you will generally find there is a bigger choice if you stay online. This is because you can easily search through lots of different websites to see which ones have some nice boot bags to buy.
Most stores that sell football boots will sell these bags as well. Some of the bags are quite big and allow you to store other items in there as well. Others are simply shoe bags and generally come with a small strap on one end that you can hook around your wrist.
The benefits of having a shoe bag like this are obvious. Let’s say you go out and have a game of football, either an amateur game or just a knock about with your friends. You might turn up with nice clean boots but by the time you have finished playing the game you will end up with muddy ones – and you don’t want to wear those for very long if you can help it.
So if you take them off and ensure they are popped into the shoe bag, the mud won’t get everywhere else. When you get home you can take the boots out and clean them, and also wipe out the shoe bag itself. They are designed to be waterproof inside so they don’t get ruined on occasions like this.
If you have several pairs of football boots at home you might want to think about buying a shoe rack to hold them all in. If you store them wherever you store the rest of your shoes you could end up running out of space. By storing them separately they will be better taken care of and also easier to find.
So however many pairs of football boots you might have, always take care to store them in the best way for you – and for the boots as well.
