How to choose eleven-a-side football boots?

    Choosing the right boot is vital in football. This guide will help you choose the right boot for eleven-a-side football according to the different types of pitch.

    HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BOOTS FOR DRY PITCHES?

    Boots for dry pitches are designed for playing 11-a-side on a large pitch (at least 45m by 90m), which can be natural or synthetic (artificial) turf. They allow the player to switch between the short and long game, and to react to the repeated demands of play. They should also help the footballer to master ball control, passing and kicking.

    Choosing your boots according to the playing surface

    Use traditional studs and multi-studs for grass and artificial pitches, to aid grip during changes of direction.
    Use bladed football boots only on grass pitches, to improve your grip when changing direction.

    Choosing your boots according to your level

    Beginners should opt for support and grip.
    Regular players should focus on ball control.
    Advanced players will go for boots that are more lightweight.

    Boots for wet pitches are designed for playing 11-a-side on a large pitch (at least 45m by 90m), on very wet grass. They can be worn for training or for official competition, and should give the player maximum grip when changing direction, controlling the ball and kicking on a particularly difficult surface.

    Choosing your boots according to the playing surface

    Use a boot with 6 screw-in studs (in aluminium or plastic) for soft or wet pitches, to improve stability.
