When playing soccer, it’s essential to wear a decent pair of boots that are suitable for the surface you’re playing on.
KIPSTA offers a complete range of soccer boots to meet the specific needs of each surface type.
How to determine which boots should you go for? On which surfaces? Let me try to help.
If you play on soft, wet and occasionally muddy natural grass surfaces, choose an SG (Soft Ground) sole with height-adjustable screw-on studs that provide better support and will prevent you from slipping. Much needed for the winter months in some states, make sure your studs are tightened before every game.
If you play on hard surfaces such as indoor synthetic grass, sand based astro-turf, concrete surfaces or shale, choose a HG (Hard ground) boot. The small studded bottom avoids any locking of the feet as they are designed to glide off the surface while offering enough grip to avoid slipping.
We recommend choosing a sole with good cushioning. The Futsal and Sala ranges are ideal for this type of game.
Leather boots always give you a better feeling and a good sense of ball control but synthetics are often lighter, allow more rapid movement and most of the time, look a little cooler.
I personally wear the CLR 700 in the Futsal Range (ref: 568105) and AGILITY 700 PRO AG in the AG range when I’m playing on astro (ref:8368678)
