Why Is Soccer Cleats Considered Underrated? | soccer cleats

Soccer cleats are just the word used to describe the specialized footwear usually worn by professional soccer players while playing a soccer match. Soccer cleats resemble other types of shoes with the additional feature of small pointed protrusions along the sole of them called studs. These studs are designed to provide traction and control over uneven surfaces. The presence of these studs enables the player to change his direction of movement within a fraction of a second by changing the position of the stud on the sole.

Soccer cleats are usually designed for hard surfaces like concrete, grass and mud. But nowadays a number of specialty shoes are also available that are designed for soft ground like the ones made for tennis. The studs are placed under the heel counter of soccer cleats to provide extra traction and control over the slippery nature of soft ground. Usually the studs are placed from the toe box to the middle area so as to give traction and control to the player. As the studs are placed deep inside the sole of the shoe, the soft ground provides great comfort and is easy to grip.

Soccer shoes can be categorized into two different categories. One is labeled as premium synthetic and other is labeled as standard synthetic. The difference between the two is based on the material that is used to manufacture soccer cleats. Premium synthetics are durable and give maximum support and traction. On the other hand, standard synthetic are lightweight and come with very little protection.

Soccer shoes with studs that are specifically designed for grip on soft ground are often referred to as low traction soccer cleats. Such shoes have studs positioned close to the heel and ball surface for extra traction and control. Such soccer cleats are mostly recommended for players with flat feet since they offer excellent balance and stability.

Another classifying factor is the style or design. There are mainly two types such as blade and glued. Blade soccer cleats are usually light weight because of the presence of sharpened blade edge. The glued stud is also known as a fused or pre-molded stud which is placed inside the shoe before the uppers. The studs are bonded or glued together using a special chemical process.

Bladed cleats are also known as low-cut soccer cleats and are specially designed to offer traction in damp conditions. The blades are usually flexible and long enough to meet the requirements of the player. The most popular form of bladed cleat is the Bladed Ground Type, which offers maximum traction on soft ground and submersible spikes which prevent slipping while playing. Some of the other specialized types include the D-Cup, D-Flex and Flex Steel concave tongue.
