Type of Cleats?

Not sure were to put this...so its going here.

Soooo, I'm shopping around for some new cleats. Apparently mine went in a box to Goodwill or someone stole them. Needless to say, I'm cleat-less.

What type do you guys use. Those ones were High top Football cleats....Air Jordan mind you. Comfy as hell, Don't judge me.

I think I would like low tops better, but should I go with baseball(not metal spike), Football, Soccer, Lacrosse?....

Just wondering. Found a few pairs I want, just curious as to what you guys use.

Funny, I need new cleats and decided to buy some new ones too.

The ones I need to replace are Nike Hightop Football cleats.. Played in Adidas Predators before (soccer).

Soccer cleats are lighter but dont have much ankle support. Football cleats at least have ankle support. Another thing I liked about football cleats is that they had removable studs. Metal tipped never wore down and were still safe for bunkers cause they arent pointed.

I'd like to have soccer boots with removable studs for my next pair, anybody else?

For hard ground, definitely soccer cleats. I play soccer as well but the adidas copa mundial cleats are still the best I've ever found. Not super cheap but they last a long time, real leather, super comfortable. Great for hard ground, dirt, and even turf.

Personally, I wouldn't go with metal or removable cleats unless you play in a lot of soft grass or mud. They can be overly harsh on hard ground in my experience.

What type of terrain do you normally play on? (i.e grass, turf, sand, dirt...)

That would help narrow down the best cleat for you.

If cleats are the best choice for your area- lacrosse cleats are a good combo of ankle protection and light weight

Soccer are my favorite but any will work. lax, football, baseball etc

Though I've heard some fields don't allow spikes so keep that in mind

I've even heard/seen people using track spikes hahaha. Not a bad idea if it's turf

Of course it depends on the terrain you play on, but I personally prefer baseball cleats.

I use soccer cleats because you don't need ankle support and they are made for speed.

You are deluding yourself if you think a shoe or boot is going to provide enough ankle support to safeguard against injury. In fact, ankle injuries tend to be more severe with footwear that provides "ankle support" due to the wearer being overconfident about their foot placement.

I wear Adidas Turf Hog indoor/outdoor soccer cleats.

I ditched my cleats for a good pair of combat boots. My cleats were always less than iffy on wooden bridges and such. The combat boots are much better in those situations and I step in any thing 8 inches deep and not worry about them.

I use my soccer cleats, very good traction and lightweight. I have two pairs, I would recommend the puma Evospeeds or predators, both are very nice!!

Check out Nike hypervenoms or Nike magista opus cleats. Both of these cleats form to your foot (unlike leather cleats) and feel exelent after hours of playtime.

I'm with Lew and rob1525: Adidas Turf Hog ftmfw. Affordable, comfortable, multi-terrain cleats, that are as good on astro-turf as they are in mud.
