One of the hardest things a player, or someone who is a beginner, can do is find a good pair of turf cleats. There are so many to chose from, so many colors, and so much marketing on certain shoes that it makes it nearly impossible for the untrained eye to keep up.
How do you go about it then? Stick with these quick tips and you’ll be spotting the best turf cleats in the market in no time.
Things to look for:
Cleats are made from one of the three materials:
- synthetic leather
- polyurethane (which is like a toughened plastic)
As you can guess, leather is the most expensive option but it gives you better quality and comfort. Synthetic leather is almost impossible to tell apart from real leather, this is a good thing because it’s more durable than real leather, and it’s also cheaper than the real thing. When it comes to polyurethane, they are usually, but not always, cheaper and they last much longer. However, because of the hardness of the shoes, polyurethane shoes have an extremely low sense of touch.
When it comes to the bottom of the shoes, make sure they are made out of rubber. Rubber is the only option when it comes to turf shoes and they provide great grip on various artificial surfaces.
Studs in turf shoes are nowhere are complex as the ones in their grass counterparts used for traction and grip. Turf shoes studs are short and barely noticeable.
