Is Genie Pro Legal?
Yes, Genie Pro is legal!
Genie Pro is a modern metatarsal guard technology.
According to all current rules, regulations, organizations and leagues (NCAA, IFAB/FIFA, HS FED), Genie Pro is covered under Player's Equipment-RULE 4 and is compliant with the specified safety guidelines as a modern, non-dangerous safety device; FIFA and the NCAA have also been notified of the existence of our Foot Guard Technology.
A referee may choose to examine any equipment used by a player to make a judgment whether said device is dangerous, and therefore legal or illegal. Genie Pro is designed to comply with all established safety guidelines as a soft metatarsal foot guard and is not dangerous; however, as any new technology, it may take time for most referees to become familiar with Genie Pro. Therefore if any questions do arise, simply inform the referee the product is a " Modern Safety Foot Guard to protect against Metatarsal Injury."
To date, in all of our field testing, no referee has questioned the legality or safety of Genie Pro, but rather, have been encouraging of our efforts to bring this to life as a missing link in the soccer protection game. If you have any doubts at all about the legality, we encourage you to opt for our Genie Pro cleats, which are designed and built from our factory with our foot guard technology pre-installed. All current rules allow for players to use any brand cleats they desire.
Will Genie Pro Change The Way I Kick?
No! A player will simply not feel them on their feet; they are ergonomically designed so they do not interfere with your kicking habits and do not change the way you kick a ball. Players quickly adapt to the minor feel adjustment and can play ball like they usually do while enjoying the added safety, protection benefits and zonal control.
Can Genie Pro Foot Guards be used with my regular cleats?
Genie Pro Foot Guards only fit shoes that have a standard mid-line, symmetrical lacing system (i.e. laces down the middle of the shoe). Use our enclosed instruction sheet or our Lacing Video to mount these guards correctly. Once mounted, they stay permanently on, no removal necessary.
The user takes full responsibility for correct application of our guards to existing shoes. We do offer our own brand of Genie Pro Cleats that have the guards professionally and correctly mounted as an option.

Professionals can benefit as they can protect their most beloved asset, their feet, while potentially developing better ball control habits. The guard can serve as a reference point like a crosshair/ rifle scope from which a player can target his/her shot, simply by using the zones labeled in our tutorial video in mind. This still requires skill and like everything else requires practice to achieve proficiency.
