#4. Defensive Players

Defenders are responsible for preventing the other team’s strikers from scoring. This means that you need to be able to steal the ball and play closely with other players. While defenders need to be light on their feet, most lightweight cleats don’t provide enough protection or durability. Look for cleats that offer a bit more protection and give you the ability to make clean passes.


#5. Goalkeepers

Goal keepers need cleats that allow them to move quickly in a lateral direction. For these quick, split-second movements, traction is essential. Goalkeepers also need to be able to make back-passes and kick-outs easily, so look for cleats that have a good strike zone.
