HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR VIRALTO IV BOOT SIZE
To ensure your feet are as comfortable as possible we recommend choosing a football boot a half size (U.K., 1 size European) smaller than your usual size. The leather upper is naturally very supple and, unlike synthetic materials, will stretch and fit the contours of your foot. For your VIRALTO IV boot, pick a half size smaller than your usual size.
For example, if you normally wear a size 9-1/2 (UK) for football boots, we recommend choosing a size 9 (UK) for your VIRALTO IV boots.
THE ULTIMATE CHOICE FOR LOVERS OF LEATHER FOOTBALL BOOTS: AN UPPER IN PREMIUM K-LEATHER!
For the "master of the pitch" who loves leather football boots, we have created nothing short of the very best! The forefoot of these Viralto IV football boots is made of kangaroo leather. This is a very high end leather, from sources strictly compliant with animal regulations. Together with our certified supplier, we use the best part of the leather in order to provide you with the best quality possible on the portions of the foot that come into contact with the ball most often.
FLEX-H AND DUAL HARDNESS TECHNOLOGIES: WHAT ARE THEY?
In order to provide you with optimum flexibility for sudden changes of direction and push-offs, mad dashes and between-the-lines passes, we use the following two technologies: The first, Flex-H, on the front of the outsole, allows the sole to bend following the shape of a horizontal "H". The second, Dual Hardness, combines materials of different hardness qualities, providing more flexibility or support depending on the targeted zone.
THE IMPORTANCE OF CUSHIONING ON TURF FOOTBALL BOOTS: HIGH PERFORMANCE EVA KALENSOLE® FOAM
Because turf or stabilised football boots are designed for play on hard pitches, they are made with cushioning that absorbs shocks. For the Viralto IV, we chose nothing less than the best! This is why we use exclusive high performance EVA Kaleidoscope® foam.
Advantages: +35% greater cushioning; +25% energy restitution; increased durability; greater stability when exposed to changes in temperature.
"SAFE CARE": FOOTBALL BOOTS THAT PUT YOUR FEET FIRST: DO THEY EVEN EXIST?
We have developed these football boots with a podiatrist who specialises in sport and professional football. We worked with him to design and test the different concepts, systems and technologies used in these football boots.
For example, on the outsole, the number of studs, their round shape and their positioning has all been specifically designed to guarantee the best balance between comfort and grip.
"OPTIMAL STRIKE ZONE": WHAT IS IT FOR?
We enlarged the main surface area that makes contact with the ball by placing the laces in an asymmetric line. The axis along which the laces are placed was shifted to the outside by 10 degrees to provide you with a larger sweet spot for controlling, passing and striking the ball.
There's nothing to hold you back from showing off your best moves! Say goodbye to missed dribbles, close-but-not-quite passes, and strikes that land in the stands. Your coach and team members will be delighted!

These football boots are the result of a multitude of choices all made with the same goal: create one of the most comfortable football boots on the market! Kangaroo leather upper on the forefoot, foam and imitation suede leather lining at the heel, a preformed insole with Poron® pads and anti-chaffing coating on the top side, plus a next-gen soft-stretch knit collar that hugs the foot closely and keeps it in place during play.
Viralto is our all new product line!
We created no fewer than 4 new models of this football boot, all focused on comfort and flexibility. Two models are in leather, and two are in synthetic materials. Each model has its own set of advantages depending on your expectations, requirements, and budget.
These models are available with an FG, MG, SG or Turf (TF) outsole.
So you'll no longer have excuses on the pitch for not controlling the ball and squashing the opposition!
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR VIRALTO IV PREMIUM LEATHER FOOTBALL BOOTS
Do you have a habit of leaving your mud-clogged boots in your bag after training and then pulling them out again just before the next session? STOP!!!
To continue to enjoy your boots, you have to put in the time. As with any leather boot, these boots require a minimum of care.
We know you'll want to wear them often, but "I even shower with my boots on" is a big no-no!
Use a soft brush, a cloth rag, and a spot of leather polish.
TURF (TF), MOULDED (FG), SCREW-IN (SG); A LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT FOOTBALL BOOT SOLES
The VIRALTO IV comes in three different sole variants: TF, FG, SG. These refer to the type of pitch you play on: - TF (Turf or stabilized): for hard ground or short synthetic grass pitches. The soles are made of rubber with a multitude of small studs. - FG (Firm Ground), for dry pitches: the famous "moulded" TPU studs made for natural or synthetic grass.
- SG (Soft Ground): for soft or muddy pitches; a hybrid sole that has 6 screw-in studs.
