Astro Turf Football Boots
Usually worn on Astroturf – sand-based or water-based – turf trainers are designed to withstand the rigours that come with playing on such an abrasive, unforgiving surface.
They therefore feature rubber outsoles rather than hard plastic soleplates, and rely on densely arranged pimple-style lugs to provide adequate traction on a surface that allows very little penetration. Traditional turf shoes tend to utilise small, round pimples for multi-directional movement.
Some modern designs, however, boast variations in stud shape, such as the adidas Predator 20 with its diamond lattice effect and the New Balance Furon V6, which has chevrons for straight-line speed.
Turf trainer outsoles are made from more durable rubber than a standard trainer, so as to better resist the friction produced by Astroturf and stop the lugs wearing down too quickly. You’ll also find turf trainers often feature additional rubber sections that extend from the outsole to wrap around high-wear areas of the upper for the same reason.
This extra reinforcement makes them suitable not only for Astroturf, but gravel and dirt pitches too. Our collection of turf trainers and turf boots includes Nike astro turf trainers, adidas astro turf trainers and PUMA astro turf trainers, along with options from Umbro, Diadora, Mizuno, Lotto, Joma and more.
