This week in the Rx Sorbo® Weekly Link Round-Up, we're going to touch on a few topics that relate to the World's game; Soccer (also known as football to majority of the world).    Every 4 years countries and nations from around the world battle against each other to prove which will be crowned the World Cup Champion... As this post is being written, the U.S. Soccer Team is facing off against Slovakia in a must win situation for advancing to the next round.  We have our fingers crossed..

Happy Feet or Kicking It New School

If you've been watching the World Cup for the past few days, we're guessing that your eyes have uncontrollably taken a glance at the colorful shoes that players are sporting this year. Soccer is perhaps the "Bling'iest" sport when it comes to over the top decorations and colors on shoes.  This is a great article that touches on the top 3 soccer shoe manufacturers (Adidas, Nike & Puma), and gives a peak at what players are wearing for this year's tournament.

Wide Soccer Cleats

Some people have wide feet; it's normal.  This article helps soccer players with wide feet find the best fitting shoe and gives details on what to look for as far as comfort.  Players also need to keep in mind that shoe insoles play an important part in performance and endurance….You don't want to take your cleats off after a long game and have sores, or even worse blisters, that can keep you off the field for the next games to come.  Take care of your feet, especially when playing soccer, because they're the driving force of the sport.

How Nike Turned the World Cup Purple and Orange

Great little article that dives into Nike's branding approach for their widely used soccer shoes (or "boots", as they're referred to in this article).  Nike is obviously doing something right if 16 out of 23 players on the U.S., Brazil and Australian teams are using their shoes.

2010 World Cup Photos

We're closing this week's list with a link to some of the 2010 World Cup photos that made headlines.  If you haven't been watching any of the matches and feel like you need a refresh of what's been going on; take a look. (Courtesy of ESPN)

 That's going to do it for us on this week's Rx Sorbo® Weekly Link Round-Up.  As of now, the U.S. is trailing Slovenia 2-1 in the second half.  Looks like we're going to have to put our rally caps on and hope for a last minute miracle….. Hey, it can be done right?

 Have a great weekend and remember to take care of your feet, particularly with some new shoe insoles if you're sporting a worn out pair.
