Blackout Service



BlackOut Service Type


The ‘blackout’ boot epitomises everything we do here at tootsboots. It is the process of completely ‘blacking out’ the boot leaving just the silhouette of the boots design visible. This look is undoubtedly one of the most unique and classy looks any football boot can have. The quality of our finish is fantastic and truly gives the ‘blackout’ look the appearance it needs in order for it to be effective.

There is currently a limited range of blackout football boots on the mainstream market, with many of the big brands offering only ONE ‘blackout’ design in their wide range of boots. tootsboots gives you the opportunity to apply it to almost any boot!

Many of the UK’s top football clubs football academies now require their players to wear black boots, making it ideal for academy players.

Blackout Service (Standard)

Send your boots into us to be either completely Blacked Out or to have a custom upper BlackOut (leaving certain elements or accents). This service can only blackout the upper of the boot, we cannot blackout any soleplate. 

The BlackOut is completed professionally by hand and is an almost permanent finish. You should expect the finish to be as robust as any mainstream brand coloured leather boot. This is the strongest BlackOut service in the world. All BlackOut services are completed with a MATTE finish with minimal shine.

Blackout Service XL

The XL BlackOut Service offers the same upper blackout as the standard service but also allows any Sock/Collar/Material sections to also be Blacked Out.

You should select this option if your boots have a dynamic fit collar, sock section or are made up of mainly a material upper.

This service will require us to use our airbrush machine and more BlackOut formula, hence the higher price.
