With so many options on the market right now, there’s more to buying football boots these days than simple picking the brand, colour and style. The majority of major sports brands who are serious about their range offer multiple versions of boots for both firm ground and soft ground football, so which is better for playing?, leading online retailer asked their fans which type of football boot they preferred to play in, with the majority opting for a firm ground boot for all types of playing. Whilst many SG (soft ground) options such as the adidas predator LZ XTRX boots come with a mixture of both moulded and removable studs for pitch variations, FG (firm ground) football boots such as the Nike Mercurial Vapour VIII come with classic bladed studs for better traction.

Of those asked, 90% of fans preferred the FG boot, but those who preferred the SG boots stated their reasons as they are ‘ideal for all the muddy pitches’.
