Choosing the Right Soccer Shoes for Each Position

August 12, 2016 1 min read

The right cleats are essential for all soccer players, but some cleats are better for certain positions than others.

Here at Goal Kick Soccer, we are proud to be a different kind of soccer shop. We are not interested in selling you the most expensive soccer gear. Instead, we are dedicated to helping you find the very best gear for your needs. The right pair of cleats is essential for every soccer player, and one of the best ways to find the right cleats for you is by considering your position on the field. The following is your guide to buying cleats based on your position:

 

#1. Center Forwards

Center forwards, also called main strikers, are responsible for scoring goals. This means that you need a cleat that gives you a clean strike zone. It’s also important to choose a cleat that is lightweight enough for you to make those explosive movements that allow you to score.

 

#2. Wingers

Wingers, also called outside forwards, are known for their speed and ability to get past the other team’s fullbacks. Because wingers need to be able to change direction and accelerate as quickly as possible, they need cleats that are lightweight.

 

#3. Midfielders

From defending against the other team’s strikers to finding opportunities for their teammates to score, midfielders have so many responsibilities on the field. That’s why midfielders need cleats that are comfortable and durable enough to give them the ability to run around the field for a full, 90 minute match.
