astroturf football boots   (+5, -2)  [vote for, against]
beautiful boots for the beautiful game. boots with ready-made grass.

football boots covered in synthetic astroturf.

little boys can play football anytime, anywhere, any surface with these boots. local council sold off your playing fields? sod ‘em – no sweat.

wearing these boots can make tackling even more skilful for professional players on a real grass surface as the opponent would not be sure where the turf finishes and the boot starts.

Mr Beckham might like to complete the ensemble with a grass skirt.

I like this, po. but you'd also need grass knee- and elbow-pads to complete the athletic ensemble, just in case of falls.

Or, if playing on grass, you could go the whole hog and wear an all-over grass suit. Hot and bulky to play in, but if you just lie still in the penalty area for most of the match the goalkeeper won't stand a chance when the ball finally comes your way.

As to the grass skirt - Hawiiaan Football? Well, Hawai not?

My beloved San Diego Chargers play their final game of the season this Saturday. They could have used some of these boots in the Kansas City mudbowl last week.
