Turf soccer shoes are a multi-use all purpose soccer cleat for players, coaches, and referees. All turf soccer cleats use a rubber bottom or outsole to give a more comfortable feel on your feet as well as a good grip to many surfaces like grass, dirt, clay, artificial grass, field turf, asphalt and other hard surfaces.
All turf soccer cleats are approved for play by any soccer organization. The stud pattern on the bottom of the shoe may change in size, shape, design, etc. but the purpose is all the same. This allows for good traxion on harder surfaces where your firm ground soccer shoes cannot fully penetrate the surface of the field. If you were to wear a cleat of longer length on a hard surface you will put a lot of pressure on your feet as well as the rest of your body. The length of a turf cleat is short which allows for some grip to the top layer of the surface while reducing the pressure on the player.
As soccer progresses around the world players have found new ways to play in spaces that are open. This is when street soccer exploded and as it grew we have carried various futsal shoes, court shoes and street soccer shoes. Some of the differences are turf soccer shoes have harder rubber studs that are longer and street or court soccer shoes have more studs that are shorter and softer.
