Football boots are a kind of footwear worn when playing football, and are essential for any level of football playing. Whether you're a professional earning millions, or just having a kickabout with a few mates in the park, football boots will give you the grip and support needed for playing on grass pitches. Invented in the 19th century, modern football boots are very different to early incarnations of the sports shoe, namely that they are no longer really boots as such, as they generally do not cover the ankle. A feature common to all football boots is the presence of studs or moulded cleats on the sole of the shoe, which dig into the grassy ground as you run, giving you more traction with the ground, and thus more speed and stability.
Football boots - for the best grip and stability!
A wide range of styles of football boot are available to suit every kind of player, and can even be worn for other sports, such as rugby. From basic kids' football boots to professional standard boots, there are football boots for everyone, as depending on the type of surface and kind of sport, different cuts of boot and stud arrangements are available. For hard fields, participants might wear a plastic-stud boot known as a 'moulded sole'. In most sports and positions this is adequate, although on a well-grassed, wet or muddy pitch, screw stud football boots would be more suitable, as they provide more grip.
