If you are the type of sportsman who prefers to play team games in a floodlit sports centre on synthetic grass then football boots with metal studs on the bottom will make you very unpopular. It is possible to wear ordinary trainers on a synthetic grass service but if you would like that extra grip and kudos then investing in a comfortable pair of Astro boots would be a great investment. Boots designed specifically for synthetic grass differ from traditional football boots because the studs are made from rubber and can be worn on all surfaces without damaging them.
We are going to look at a selection of astro boots that will not only prevent you from skidding on synthetic grass but will also look great too.
These bright classic Addidas Astro Turf trainers are full lace up, have a moulded traxion sole, stitching detail, cushioned insole, cushioned ankle collar and are available in a wide range of eye catching colours.
Marketed as the only way to survive the real world these Nike trainers are expensive at £125 but they are fantastic. The name Mericrial Proximo suggests that they should have little wings on them like the messenger of the gods. This mighty footwear is designed specifically for small sided play and if you play your cards right could elevate you to be man of the match.
These bright orange solid surface boots have plenty of grip if you are wanting to get the edge over the other players. The rubber studs are extra big on these trainers so may not be as versatile as the others we have looked at.
These stunning trainers from New Balance are an alternative to the typical fluorescent yellow or orange coloured boots trainers you can buy. Designed to work fantastically on synthetic grass these will help you to become the best player you could possibly be.
So if you want to get to grips with synthetic grass this season think about brightening up your feet and maybe you could be the most valuable member of your team.
