I thought trunks were boots. And pants are trousers.

Is there an English translation of the headline?

Because for much of the history of football, they were actually boots?

Wiki suggests that lower-cut shoes didn't come in until the 1960s.

Really? So, I should be calling these safety hi-tops instead of safety boots?

From what I read on teh wiki earlier on, the earliest modern* football boots were the player's safety boots, steel capped and all. The Daslers (of Adidas and Puma fame) came up with the innovation of screw-in studs, that all football codes have ended up using.

* An inventory of Henry VIII's wardrobe apparently mentioned a pair of football boots, back in the 16th century.

/And, Alexei Sayle, because I can.
