Resumen:
Un inventor finlandés ha desarrollado una bota de fútbol que ofrece la capacidad de mejorar la tracción de la suela de forma rápida y sencilla. La tecnología se coloca en posición invertida en la parte del talón y permite utilizar las botas en distintos tipos de campos con un buen rendimiento. La tecnología ha sido incorporada en botas ya existentes y probada con éxito. También se ha utilizado en botas de jugadores profesionales del equipo de fútbol nacional juvenil de Finlandia. El inventor busca un fabricante con el fin de establecer un acuerdo de licencia, así como inversores para iniciar la producción de botas de fútbol basadas en esta tecnología.

Tittle:
Licencing of or a financial agreement for a football boot outsole invention
Summary:
A Finnish inventor has developed a football boot invention that creates the ability to improve the outsole traction in a fast and easy way. The inventor is interested in a licencing agreement with a manufacturer or to find investors and start to produce football boots based on the advantage that the invention creates.
Description:
Football is played on different kinds of ground types such as sand, artificial grass, dry grass and wet grass. There are also existing football boots with different outsole abilities for different ground types. Still majority from the 265 million football players of the world play on all the different ground types with just one pair, because they prefer to invest in one expensive high quality pair and they play with that same pair on all the different ground types and often they play with a bad traction if for example they play with the same boot on a hard artificial grass and on a wet soft grass.
The new invention creates the ability to improve the outsole traction in a fast and effortless way and to play on every different ground type with a good performance by using just one pair of football boots.
The new invention is a part of the outsole and it is located in the heel area in an inverted position. The first mode gives fairly similar reach to all of the studs in the heel area and it is suitable for a firm ground and artificial grass. If the sole part is turned 180 degrees, the reach of the studs that are further in the heel increases and it can penetrate deeper to the soft ground and it gives a better traction on a soft wet grass.
The Finnish inventor is specialised in product development of sporting goods and sports marketing. The inventor is offering a licensing agreement for a football boot manufacturer or is searching to find investors in order to start to produce football boots based on the advantage that the invention creates.
Advantages and Innovations:
There have not been any major inventions to the outsole of a football boot since the replaceable studs came several decades ago. If replaceable studs are changed, every single stud needs to be screwed separately and it is very time consuming, hard work and also needs a lot of iron parts to the outsole. Also every stud is under a heavy pressure and often can cause technical problems.
With the new invention it is faster and easier to increase the traction compared to replaceable studs.

Also there is just one stud that holds the new outsole part on its place. There is also no pressure to this same stud, because the pressure points are inside of the outsole part. Therefore it works really well.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The first option is to make a licensing agreement with a football boot manufacturer or manufacturers, i.e. the football boot manufacturer would manufacture under a licence and sell the products. The second option is to find investors and start to produce own football boots based on the advantage that the invention creates. The inventor is also open for other suggestions as well.
