Particular attention should be paid to the selection of soccer shoes. For the match and training, it is essential to choose the right to avoid injury. It is also important to know the tie and properly maintained.
To ensure you make the right choice it is necessary:
- Take shoes the right size!
Take the time to try them with football socks (thicker than those of city), preferably in the late afternoon, the time of day when your feet are most swollen.
If you take too little shoes, c ela will be felt in the nails and friction. When short, the foot tends to move in the shoe. Now, with a shoe too small or too short the risk of hematoma (blood bags that attach under the nail to force the repetition of friction) is greater. There may be also a lot of damage to the nail level likely to cause a broken nail or fungi. Too small shoe is a foot that moves less.
Conversely, if you take too big shoes you will have less well maintained foot. You will have to tighten the shoe, which will compress certain muscles, arteries and small veins. This will also affect the support, direction changes, rotation or acceleration phenomena. The result will be a lack of reliability in the movements.
It should not abut the toes after. Preferably best left between 0.5 and 1 cm after.
- Choose shoes in which you feel good, stiff in the back for the perfect fit and flexible at the toes to allow for better ball control.
- Buy shoes with suitable cleats:It is mainly the type of lawn that will determine the choice of footwear.Outside, if the playing surface is oily (this is often the case in winter), it is best to opt for shoes with screw-in studs. This model is equipped with six spikes, four behind and two in front. These last two are slightly longer than the others. When trying a pair, you should not feel the cleat in contact with the foot. If this is the case, this means that the sole is not good enough.
You can also use the soles strips crampons. They include August to October molded cleats and provide a superior comfort and grip to conventional studs. Their spikes are longer and thinner than those for dry terrain.
For added comfort and grip, choose models with flex zone in the forefoot.
You can also choose molded cleats if the land is only slightly damp but make sure that stability is sufficient and that you will not slip with each change of support.
The molded cleats are rather indicated on dry or hard ground. You will get more grip with the ground and have more ease to change direction. If you opt for still screwed cleats, opt for the shortest possible spikes (13 mm) and if possible rubber or nylon instead of aluminum.
The shoes multi studs are ideal for surfaces synthetic, stabilized or frozen … they are grooved rubber or provided with pins over their entire surface.
If you play in, you can also opt for handball shoes that adapt well to the surface.
Whatever the ground molded cleats are recommended for children aged 7-12 years (reliable, simple to use and inexpensive).
At each renewal of pairs of shoes, it is advisable not to give up at once his old pair for the new. It is best to leave you time to adapt. For example, if you train three times a week, the first week we will put it once, the second week twice to end up putting all the time. As a precaution, it is advisable to use new shoes to start training for it and to adapt to toe.
Leather or synthetic ?
The choice is difficult. The synthetic is used on many models because it is very popular for its ease of maintenance and durability. Some people, however, find that the synthetic decreases the sensation at the ball contact.
Leather shoes, very soft perfectly the shape of your foot and provide better ball control. The majority of high-end shoes are leather, the top being the Kangaroo leather. However, maintenance is much more difficult and are less resistant than synthetic.
Whatever your choice, always try the shoes with socks to be sure that the thickness will not hinder you once our feet on the ground.
The price :
The budget required for a pair of shoes of course depends on your frequency of use. If you play only once or twice a month or less, you will find your happiness from 30 euros. However, if you play every weekend or even several times a week, it is better to provide at least 50 euros if you want the pair lasts all season. It is even more prudent to have two pairs, one with molded cleats, another with screw-in studs, in order to adapt to all conditions.
Precautions to prevent blisters :
There are two things: the preparation of the shoe and the foot. Prepare his shoe, is the broadening before playing especially in places where we used to have blisters. One can, for example, carry home to the relax a little. Second solution: work on his foot, that is to say protecting the straps by putting the places where it has a habit of rubbing. One can also prepare your skin by applying specific anti-friction cream to prevent any blisters. These creams are used during pre-season digs because it is at this time that the skin is unaccustomed to friction.
The different lacing techniques:
For the comfort and safety of the player, it is essential that the shoes are well laced. Different lacing techniques exist in the shape of the foot.
This lacing saves in width (the lace passes in point A and point 1 for two pieces of identical size, then follows one hand the direction of 1 to 5 and the other from A to E).
The lace passes in all eyelets of the shoe in the crossing. It will provide secure lacing heel and provide better contact with the sole (it follows the direction of 1 to 10. From the point 1-2, the lace passes below).
The lacing is recommended for people who have soft nails because it gives more room in the toe.
Lacing Special Comfort
This technique eliminates the pressure of the lace on the tongue of the shoe through the eyelets in all without crossing it (it follows the direction of 1 to 5 and A to E).
For the foot properly maintained, I can type the heel on the floor 2 or 3 times before you start lacing the shoe. I can also go around the laces of the shoe.
For better surface contact with the ball, I can make an off-center lacing to avoid discomfort node or hide the knot under the tongue flap.
A well done lacing should not mark compression point.
3 Tips to maintain its soccer shoes and make them last longer :
- Wash them after every game and practice, after removing the earth stuck with a brush,
- Them out of the bag to dry them on returning home after having filled with newspaper to absorb moisture. Change the paper as soon as it becomes too wet
- The wax or grease them regularly to relax and maintain the leather. This will waterproof shoes and prevent them crackle
In general, avoid putting the shoes near a heat source or in the washing machine with too high a temperature. put them on the radiator after playing may distort and cause small lesions. So always keep the shoes to dry
Moreover, we must let them breathe because you feel bad feet quickly. Better to avoid the odor products which we do not know the provenance because allergies are common.
Possibly invest in a second cheaper pair for training days in atrocious weather conditions.
It would be good to change football footwear every year.
