The G.Nova’s looks divided opinion – some thought it looked like a football boot, others that it was handsomely understated. Either way, the performance is hard to fault.
Fit is excellent, with good support around the mid-foot and heel, and the nylon sole is stiff, without compromising comfort.
There’s a decent rubber blob on the heel to make sure you can walk on it too, and they’ve had the good sense to not bother with a toe bumper, as any walking grip from the front of the shoe – or lack of it – is going to be decided by the cleat you ﬁt.
The closure system is simple but effective – underneath each Velcro strap is a toothed strip which provides secure, but quick and easy to use, fastening.
