More than 80 percent of female players at major European soccer clubs suffer from persistent discomfort with their ball boots, a new study shows.

The European Club Association, which represents European clubs, surveyed 350 players from 16 top-flight teams.

The study found that 82 percent of them felt discomfort that could affect their performance, while one in five said they had their shoes customized in an effort to improve comfort.

Football boots on the market today are mostly designed for white men.
