what shoes do you wear for different terrain. Because i bought track (spike) shoes, and i was wondering what size spikes for turf? What for Xball grass? and such and such. Or even due your players use track shoes? It would be greatly appreciated if someone from the team could get back at me.

Track shoes arent good to use on other surfaces heh, not good for your leg.

They use Dye cleats, they use just normal shoes people have, and they use cleats like soccer cleats. Whatever pretty much, I think soccer cleats work great.

Many are using Track shoes with spikes on the grass.. Now there are different size spikes and what is used is determined by the grass.. Just screw them in and out to change for your preference.

artificial turf most are using a Nike Track shoe.. Indoors type.. No spikes but indoor style cleats.

Get a distance spike because they actually have somewhat of a heel. Bring regular shoes to wear in between games if you plan on walking around on cement because its hard on spikes and also on your body. Spike lengths do vary depending on the field but I usually stick to a 3/8" Pryamid spike for grass. Turf I use lowtop football cleats.

Heres what i use

A real bowling shoe (some quality) doesn't have a slick front, it's a different material and it would just destroy it.

wait, what is a "Nike Track shoe.. Indoors type.. No spikes but indoor style cleats." then wouldnt they not be cleats but if they had no spikes, just regular running shoes.
im just wandering should i use my track spikes on the HB turf, or should i use my ATC's, or regular running shoes?
And for those people that do use track spikes, which size spike should i use for turf.
These are the shoes i got, i know there ugly but they were free brand new.


which size/type spike for turf?
NEEDLE
OR PYRAMID, i know that dude said pyramid 3/8 is good for grass, but what for turf, pyramid or needle ?

No idea, but make sure you take those shoes off if you plan on walking on cement, or some other really hard surface. Can cause ****ty leg damage

Those are nice spikes, I ran in some of my friends yesterday at an indoor meet. I'd go with 1/8" if you're set on using spikes, spikes aren't typically good on turf. I think Gary was talking about indoor soccer style cleats that are made for turf or football cleats. Similar to these http://www.soccercorner.com/SearchRe...sp?Search=turf
Those spikes that you have are made for mid distance I think. They don't have a whole lot of extra traction besides the spikes on them so taking out the spikes would be worse than running in just running shoes. So
1. Turf Cleats
2. Running Shoes
3. Spikes with 1/8"
4. Spikes with blanks/nothing (whatever they're called nubs?)
