Men's Artificial Hard Ground Soccer Shoes
Men's Artificial Ground Soccer Shoes or AG and Men's Hard Ground Soccer Shoes or HG both have the same bottom and purpose. Soccer fields with field turf, artificial grass, or hard ground do not allow the studs of the shoe to penetrate the surface. In field turf soccer fields your stud may become stuck in the turf and cause an injury. For these reasons AG or HG soccer cleats were made to give some grip but also reduce the torque and pressure put on your ankle, knee and back.
Hard Ground soccer cleats and Artificial Grass soccer shoes are typically made with 25 or more studs on the bottom. This is much more than your typical firm ground soccer shoe at 12 studs. With more cleats on the bottom this allows for the pressure to be evenly dispersed across your feet. AG of HG cleats are much smaller, wider and softer than firm ground shoes. This keeps you lower to the ground for more stable movement and less pressure on your joints.
