Selecting the best soccer cleats depend largely on the type of field you’ll use for games and practices. Most soccer cleats have studs that are permanently attached, so playing on more than one field type can mean you will need more than one pair of shoes! However, you can always opt to select a pair of soccer shoes with removable cleats.
- Outdoor Pitches: Molded, firm-ground cleats made from materials like rubber or hard plastic deliver ample traction and suit most weather conditions for safety in motion.
- Indoor Pitches: Cleat-free soccer shoes with flat, rubber soles suit hard, glossy floors and are gentile on most artificial fields. An ideal pair to pick up would be the PUMA Men's Pressing Indoor Soccer Shoes.
Looking for soccer cleats for wider feet? Material matters. Cleats with leather uppers will stretch with wear and ultimately mold comfortably to the form of your foot.
Once you have found the best cleat type to optimize your game, it is time to make sure the rest of the shoe is right for you. Overall composition can also impact your game – durable leather and synthetic soccer shoes with ball-handling texture boost ball feel and contact as you streak down the field. More breathable materials like mesh and knit fabrics help your feet stay cool.
As a bonus, plush cushioning helps ease cleat pressure and fight foot fatigue to help you stay in the game. Check out the latest styles, such as the adidas™ Women's Goletto VII Firm Ground Soccer Shoes.
