Soccer Cleats & Football Boots - How to Choose the Right One For

If you are on the market for a new pair of soccer cleats there is a number of factors to consider. The design and shape can affect performance, as well as the quality of cleat can. Nike, Adidas and Puma are the three biggest companies that all sell HG (hard ground), FG (firm ground) SG (soft ground), and TF (artificial turf) soccer cleats.

In soccer, the Nike line ranges from super lightweight to wide fit. Nike Vapors are be good, lightweight football boots coming in at 6.6 oz.s.

Lighter soccer cleats can help speed up the game. An all around player may prefer the Total 90; it is a wider fit cleat that is side-laced with a large striking surface and a supportive arrangement of its studs.

Adidas released the F50; a cleat built for adaptability. The Predator compares with Total 90.

Puma compares to the others with the PWR-C v.1.10 and King XL. All of these examples of soccer cleats are available in kangaroo leather, regular leather or synthetic leather.

Paying more for football boots gets kangaroo leather which gets the most supple feel and fit for the ball. Regular leather will not get the same type of touch. Synthetic leather feels like plastic, is somewhat rigid and the least durable, but cheapest, of the three. Only those involved in serious football need the most expensive of what Adidas, Nike and Puma have to offer.

Shorter and more numerous studs are used for HG pitches. The length and count shows what kind of surface the soccer cleat is best used on. TF boots are used on the hardest of ground when HG would apply too much pressure and cause pain while playing. SG cleats usually have removable studs (and others of varying length) to allow more traction on soft or wet fields. FG football cleats are able to be used on all types of fields (hard or soft) except the most extreme. This is also the option to pick if it is expensive to own multiple pairs of cleats.

Football / soccer boots have many different aspects to look through. Shop around and find what best fits the situation.
