Skechers Razor is another serious attempt by the brand to enter the football boot market. It’s the silo that accompanies Harry Kane‘s much-hyped SKX control boots. But does that seriousness means the Razor is competent enough on its own and on-par with the mainstream boots out there? Just like the SKX we got our hands (and feet) to the Razor to find out for ourselves and share with you guys if you can indeed enjoy your football wearing these Skechers boots.

Hyper-burst Pro Sock-liner
A staple of Skechers footwear, Hyper-burst Pro is a highly responsive ultra-lightweight, long lasting and resilient TPU cushioning which moulds to the shape of your foot, providing a custom fit that ensures maximum comfort throughout the entire game.
Knitted Back Quarter
Unparalleled breath-ability meets dynamic support in the knitted back quarter of the Razor. The lightweight, flexible knit construction allows for superior ventilation, keeping your feet cool and dry, while also providing excellent ankle support and stability.
U-Throat with Leather-Feel Synthetic Upper
Our unique U-Throat design offers a secure and snug fit around the midfoot. The upper is crafted from a premium leather-feel synthetic material, combining the durability of synthetic with the luxurious touch of leather, providing exceptional ball control and a seamless touch.
Enhanced Traction Pattern
Strategically placed chevron placed studs ensures superior grip and agility, allowing you to push off with confidence and maintain speed, making cuts at pace.
Anatomically Designed Heel Counter
The boot’s anatomically designed heel counter provides excellent lockdown and stability during sharp turns and sprints. It reduces the risk of slippage inside the boot, giving you more control over your movements.
Unisport Razor Review
Jay Mike of Unisport tested Skecher’s speed boot and has this to say:
- looks to be made with comfort in mind
- has good comparison to the Teijin synthetic of the Nike Mercurial Vapor 10
- more round forefoot shape and bit of extra toe space might affect nimbleness and speed boot vibe in general
- forefoot flex quite too bendy for a speed boot
- traction and chevron stud configuration similar to Vapor 14
- touch falls on the barefoot side with a small hint of dampness
- heel counter has a nice shape and depth
- Fitknit collar causes some amount of dead spaces around the ankle
- true-to-size with a decent wide fit
