Soccer Shoes & Cleats Soccer is a game that is primarily played with feet. Therefore the most important piece of soccer equipment is the footwear. A good pair of cleats, or boots as many people call them, is essential. There are variations of the basic soccer cleat designed for different skill levels, weather conditions, and field types.

Types of Cleats
Footwear for soccer depends on a number of factors. The level of game, the types of fields one plays on, and the budget are the major factors to finding the right kind of footwear.
  • Molded Cleats
    • Molded cleats are the basic soccer shoes.
    • They use non-removable rubber, or hard plastic formed on the bottom of the shoe to provide traction and control.
    • Molded cleats are appropriate for players playing in firm grass fields.
    • Beginning and intermediate level players should purchase molded cleats because they are suited to play on almost all fields types and in all weather conditions.
  • Detachable Cleats
    • These types of soccer boots feature studs on the bottom that can be screwed on and off and be replaced easily
    • The cleats vary in length and are usually made of hard plastic or plastic with metal tips.
    • Players can change the type and length of stud depending on the weather conditions of that day's game or practice.
    • More experienced players may favor detachable cleats because these shoes can be tailored to their game and they offer better performance in different conditions.
  • Turf Shoes
    • These contain various raised patterns on the bottom in place of studs, for use on harder outdoor surfaces and on artificial turf.
    • These are generally good training shoes that could serve as a back-up game pair for hard-surface conditions.
  • Indoor Shoes
    • Indoor soccer shoes resemble low-cut, lightweight sneakers and are designed for playing indoor soccer in a gym or recreational facility
    • They feature a flat, rubbery-type bottom for better traction on indoor courts and fields.
  • Sandals
    • An important footwear add-on for all soccer players, these slip-ons are worn before the game to save wear on the soccer shoes and allows immediate removal of playing shoes after a game to rest the feet.
    • Many sandals have special massage-type features for the bottom of the foot for added comfort.

Materials
Soccer shoes come in two basic materials:
  • Leather
    • Leather uppers offer the best feel and fit of any soccer shoe, but are also generally more expensive
    • Full-grain leather shoes are strong and durable, while variations such as Kangaroo leather are more flexible and offer an even better feel.
    • The softer the leather, the better the feel for the ball, but also the less durable the shoe
    • Leather shoes also absorb more water than synthetic shoes. They are not recommended for constant use on wet fields, however, water treatment options are available.
  • Synthetic
    • Most entry and mid-level players should purchase soccer shoes made with synthetic materials
    • Synthetic uppers are generally less expensive than leather shoes, but do not offer as good a feel and do not last as long as a well-cared for leather boot.
    • Synthetic shoes generally contain some sort of water treatment and therefore last better under poor playing conditions.
    • They are also easier to clean and dry out.
