Soccer Shoe Guide

Choose Your Surface

Different surfaces can affect traction and control, so it’s important to find the right sole plate for the type of field, or court, you play on. That’s why we’ve created different sole plates designed to react to the specific demands of different types of pitches, helping you to always play at your best.

Soccer Shoe Guide

Firm Ground

The sole plate of choice for those playing on professional fields, firm ground sole plates are perfect for grounds with natural grass, kept short and dry or slightly damp, but not muddy. They’re also suitable for most artificial turfs.

Soccer Shoe Guide

Soft Ground

Worn by most players in wetter climates, soft ground sole plates have some detachable metal studs and are perfect for damp, muddy fields with long or short grass. Soft ground sole plates are not suitable for firm fields and artificial turf.

Soccer Shoe Guide

Artificial Grass

Purpose built for peak performance on artificial grass, these plates are perfect for playing on 3G and 4G fields, the latest generations of artificial turf. Artificial sole plates should not be used on natural grass fields.

Soccer Shoe Guide

Multi-Ground

Multi-ground sole plates are the perfect all-rounder, ideal for those who like to play on different types of surfaces.

Soccer Shoe Guide

Indoor/Small Sided

With their rubber outsole, our indoor sole plates offer you the traction you need for indoor court and outdoor street or concrete play.

Soccer Shoe Guide

Turf

Take your turf game to the next level with our specialized turf sole plates. These are designed for use on older artificial fields, which tend to be shorter and firmer than modern 3G and 4G fields, and those found at small-sided indoor facilities.

Whether it’s on a full-sized field or small-sided, every player has their style. That’s where our Mercurial, Phantom and Tiempo silos come in, engineered to help soccer players zero-in on certain aspects of their performance. So, how do you play?
