Whatever your position on the football field, there's a football cleat to help you get the job done. Football
cleats are made both for the position you play and the type of field where you play. Keep these two important factors
in mind when you purchase your football footwear.
Football cleats come in three styles--or heights--to accommodate the varying needs of players by position. High-tops, and low-cut shoes are designed for a
specific purpose, so choose the style that best suits your position and needs.
High-tops extend up the ankle to provide extra support, especially for lateral movements
Linemen benefit from this support because of the pressure put on their ankles by the numerous lateral movements
during the course of a game
A mid-cut shoe offers more support while still allowing maneuverability
This style best fits the game of skill players- defensive backs, running backs, wide receivers and
Low-cuts are preferred by some players because they are lightweight
The lower cut provides extra maneuverability to allow you to make quick cuts on the field
You have your choice between molded and detachable cleats.
Most are designed exclusively for either grass or turf fields, so consider what types of fields you most commonly play
on. If your games are played on both grass and turf, you can opt for a multipurpose cleat.
These cleats are permanently attached to the outsole on the shoe's bottom
Turf shoes usually use molded rubber cleats to give you spring and traction on the harder turf surface
Molded cleats are generally less expensive than shoes with detachable cleats
Detachable cleats use studs that can be removed and replaced to fit field conditions on all types of grass--hard
and dry or wet and sloppy
Their versatility makes detachable cleats preferable if you primarily play on grass
With a wrench and replacement cleats, you can easily customize your shoes
You can choose shorter studs for a hard, dry surface and longer studs when you play on a wet, sloppy field
