Choosing your football boots depends on several things: the type of pitch and the boot upper and components.

Read our tips below and make your choice.

Type of terrain

The first thing to think about is the type of surface you'll be playing on. 

If you plan to play on natural grass or long artificial grass, you'll want to opt for a firm ground (FG) model with moulded studs for good traction or a multi-ground (MG) model with a pivot point for easier direction changes and excellent traction. 

For playing on short astroturf or sand-dressed pitches, choose a hard ground (HG) boot style. Short rubber studs will give you the traction you need. 

To play on soft natural grass, you should choose a soft ground (SG) model with screw-in aluminium studs.

The boot component

The boot component is also an important factor to take into account. 

If you mainly need a durable boot, choose one with a synthetic upper.

If you're looking for a flexible, comfortable boot, choose a leather model for excellent ball feel.

 

 

 

 

High top or low top? 

Finally, you'll have to decide between a high-top or low-top style. 

High-top boots will give you more support. You can see that this type of boot doesn't have a tongue. That means you won't have to worry about the tongue slipping down to one side while playing.  

Low-top boots will give you greater freedom of movement at the ankles.
