Do you need turf shoes? What are turf shoes? Who wears turf shoes? League Outfitters has all the answers for you.
Turf shoes are designed specifically for artificial turf surfaces and indoor turf surfaces as well as a great option for training and practice. The small rubber studs grip the turf surface and assist in pushing off on a foot with minimal slippage. They also provide optimal traction for quicker cuts and acceleration. Turf shoes are perfect for surfaces where you do not need to “dig in”. Lightweight and breathable but also have the extra padding for impact protection.
Today many players are opting for a great pair of turf shoes for training as well as the baseball, softball and soccer fields. Even some of our football players tell us their equipment bag isn’t complete unless it has a pair of turf shoes and molded cleats in it. Whether its practice, playing on a turf field or a dry grass field, turf shoes are becoming their “go-to” shoe. Of course, a great pair of molded cleats are needed for those wet and muddy grass and dirt fields when you really need to “dig in”.
Many parents have asked do young players really need turf shoes? Aren’t their regular sneakers good enough? The answer is plain and simple. For the young player making their debut on the baseball diamond, football field or soccer pitch, protecting their ankles in a quality pair of turf shoes is of extreme importance. A good turf shoe not only has the extra padding for impact, but also gives protection to the ankle where your “growth plates” are. You wouldn’t send your child up to bat with a batting helmet or on the football field without the needed protection equipment, don’t forget their feet. Possibly more important for the youth, protecting those growth plates in paramount.
