What a rough year it has been. Covid-19 rocked the entire world and I can’t emphasize how much it has affected the BOOTHYPE team here in Singapore. Workplaces got shuttered down and so were the fields we enjoyed our football on. Our bi-weekly rituals on the pitch where we took time to unplug from our lives were taken so abruptly that it took us by surprise.
It hit me doubly hard as my other business got badly hit – affecting a huge chunk of my personal income. It wasn’t always easy keeping BOOTHYPE alive through 2020 but writing for you have kept me sane during this difficult time.
We’ve enjoyed writing about some of the best football boots this year like the Puma Ultra and the adidas X Ghosted while also sprinkling in new articles like the Best Football Boots for Wide feet – something that seemed to have pleased many of you readers. Our team had to be extra creative in writing pieces like “How to clean your football boots” and an introspective on the Ronaldinho Dois to make up for the months that we couldn’t review boots on the pitch.
We understand how it feels to have to fork out so much for boots, we still do buy many of the items we review. Often times, we stalked e-commerce sites to wait for the perfect time when boots go on discount dropped before buying it for cheaper. As part of our mission to help every player find their perfect football boot, we set up BOOTHYPE Deals so that we can share the latest price drop so that you can get that adidas Predator or Nike Mercurial Superfly while keeping your wallet happy.
Every purchase you make from our links do contribute to keeping BOOTHYPE running so we appreciate everyone who has bought via our links and we encourage anyone looking for new football boots to buy it through our deals page.
I have cherished connecting with everyone of you, whether it’s via Instagram, blog comments, email or even in person. I truly feel the love you have for football boots and every interaction with you has given me more energy and purpose to produce more content for the site.
As we approach our third year in 2021 (heck, has it been that long already?), I would like to thank everyone who has made this journey possible. From our excellent team, to our partners and most importantly you, our dear reader. Without you, none of this would be possible.
Thank you, and may we kick off 2021 Zidane style – head first with no fear. Happy new year, everyone.
The BOOTHYPE Team
