Frequently Asked Questions

What are soft ground football boots?

Soft Ground Football Boots are specifically designed for use on natural grass pitches that are wet, muddy, and require the most traction. They have fewer, but longer studs which are usually made of metal, sometimes plastic, to penetrate the surface and reach the solid ground underneath. This helps to provide stability and prevent slipping in challenging conditions.

These boots are often used by professional players and are recommended for use during the winter months when pitches tend to be more waterlogged. However, they should not be used on hard ground or artificial grass surfaces as this can lead to injuries due to the lack of give in the surface.

Please note that some leagues and referees may not allow metal studs, so it’s always best to check the rules before purchasing.

At Lovell Soccer, we offer a variety of Soft Ground Football Boots from leading brands, each offering different features to enhance performance. Be sure to check the product descriptions for more details.

Can you wear soft-ground boots on dry grass?

Soft Ground Football Boots are not recommended for use on dry grass. These boots are designed with longer, often metal, studs that are intended to penetrate soft, wet surfaces for better traction.

Using them on dry grass or hard ground can be uncomfortable and potentially dangerous for the player. The studs will not penetrate the ground as they are designed to, which can lead to a lack of grip and increased risk of slipping. Moreover, the pressure from the studs can be directly transferred to the player’s feet, which can cause discomfort or even injury.

It’s always best to use the right type of boots for the conditions you’re playing in. For dry grass, Firm Ground (FG) or Hard Ground (HG) boots would be more suitable as they have shorter studs and are designed to provide traction on harder surfaces.

Remember, safety and comfort should always be your priority when choosing your football boots. If you’re unsure, feel free to contact our customer service team who would be happy to help you select the right boots for your needs.

Can I use soft ground football boots on artificial turf?

No, it’s not recommended to wear soft ground football boots on astroturf. Soft ground boots are designed for muddy natural pitches where the metal studs can sink into the ground to provide more grip. Wearing soft ground boots on an astroturf pitch can damage the artificial surface.

For astroturf, it’s better to use boots designed specifically for this type of surface. There are two main types of boots suitable for astroturf:

Artificial Grass (AG) Boots: These boots were created with 3G astroturf pitches in mind. They provide great grip on the surface without ruining the turf. The boots have round, plastic studs that are slightly shorter than those of moulded boots. They are best for 3G astroturf and should not be used on grass.

Astroturf Trainers: These trainers are made for 2G astroturf pitches, which means any sand-based or water-based artificial grass pitch. They can also be used on 3G pitches, but they don’t offer as much grip as the AG boot. They are best for 2G astroturf and can be used on 3G, but not all pitch owners will allow them.

Remember, it’s important to choose the right type of boots for the surface you’re playing on to prevent injuries and to ensure the best performance3. Always check with the pitch owners if you’re unsure about the type of boots allowed.

How do I care for and clean my soft ground football boots?

After use, clean off mud and dirt with a soft brush and water. Ensure the studs are free of debris. Allow the boots to air dry naturally, and avoid exposing them to direct heat sources.

Do professional football players use soft ground boots?

Yes, professional players often have a variety of boots for different playing conditions, including soft ground. They choose their footwear based on the specific requirements of the game.

How do I choose the right stud length for soft ground football boots?

The appropriate stud length depends on the depth of the soft ground. Longer studs provide better traction in deeper conditions, while shorter studs are suitable for slightly softer surfaces. Consider the specific playing conditions of your field.
