Soccer season is back, our first practice was last Thursday! I had to stop by a couple of stores to find shoes in the right size. Apparently the average soccer player wears a size 39, because that was the one size decently represented on the shelves. (You might think the opposite, but the shelves were quite well stocked. It wasn’t a case of a gaping hole where the 45s should have been.) I managed to find a single (1!) pair that fit; a pair of blue Adidas boots that cost far too much.
The good news is, they actually seem worth the cost. I could literally feel them grabbing the ball a few times before sending it on its way. (Yes, those white lines are more than just decoration.) I also seem to have developed calf muscles that I could have sworn weren’t there before practice.
