Best for natural grass soccer fields and some field turf surfaces. You may see them also listed as "FG" soccer shoes. Our featured products include stuff from Nike, adidas, Puma and New Balance. All designed to keep you at the top of your game.
Typically, a player will evaluate a firm ground cleat based on the upper material and design and the cleat pattern. The "Upper" is the top of the shoe and is made of either a synthetic material or from leather. Many manufacturers will cater the Upper to the type of player using the shoe. This includes:
• weight of the shoe
• enhancements to the soccer shoe to promote better
touch, control or power for the soccer player.
The cleat of the shoe provides the necessary traction while running in a soccer practice or game. Most cleats are either a conical or bladed shape. Each one has its advantages in how it provides grip and leverage when running and cutting from side-to-side. It is recommended to find a cleat pattern that feels best on your foot and reduces any uncomfortable pressure points. For younger players, a rubber outsole (cleat) is recommended because it is a softer material and will still provide the necessary traction.
