WHICH IS BETTER??
On one side you have the ultra-lightweight Mercurial soccer shoes that offer excellent traction for acceleration. They are molded to match a natural foot shape which enhances control while dribbling. A poll on our facebook page (facebook.com/soccermall) revealed the Nike Mercurial soccer shoe is preferred by attackers because it helps them with their speed and quick movements.
On the other side there are the Nike CTR360 soccer shoes. They are called CTR360 because they are designed to enhance passing/receiving with control fins on the instep of the shoe (CTR) and the tread pattern is geometrically designed to enhance directional change in all directions (360). The upper is made out of Nike’s KangaLite which mimics the property of Kangaroo leather, but is lighter and more durable. Our poll revealed defenders and midfielders like the CTR360 because it has good support in the heel and extra protection on the top.
What side are YOU on???
Let us know!!
Lionel Messi is a tremendous soccer player for FC Barcelona and Argentina. He has won four Ballon d’Ors and 3 UEFA Champions Leagues. His highlight attributes are skillful dribbling and ball control that is made possible with mesmerizing agility. Adidas Soccer has honored this great player with the MESSI 10 F50 adizero soccer cleats.
Soccer Cleat Tread Pattern- The tread pattern on the F50 soccer cleats is created by TRAXION, which is a geometric technology developed by Adidas. Using strategic cleat placement and triangular soccer cleat studs, the soccer players ability to swiftly change direction is enhanced.
LIGHT-weight- The F50 adizero soccer cleat by Adidas is the lightest soccer cleat in the world. It weighs 5.8 oz. The upper material on the soccer shoe is called SprintSkin. It is a durable, synthetic material that offers stability using minimal material. The out-sole is made of TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane). TPU is extremely light but is also very strong and durable.
Ball Contact- The Adidas SprintSkin is textured with Adidas SprintWeb. This is a 3D texture that offers enhanced grip while dribbling and a durable strike zone. The TPU outsole elevates in the heel for extra support and control while running and dribbling at a fast speed.

SOCCERCART.com wants to help our soccer players understand the difference between turf soccer shoes and soccer cleats, also called FG (firm ground).
Turf soccer shoes- Ideal for hard ground with short grass. The rubber mold on the tread pattern grips the harder terrain and offers smoother traction. Soccer firm ground cleats may be too long and rigid for this terrain. It is possible firm ground soccer cleats will cause more stress on the foot sole, ankle, knees and back.
Soccer Firm Ground Cleats- The strong, reinforced blades on the firm ground tread pattern offer great traction when the terrain can be penetrated. This allows the soccer cleat blade to stabilize itself in the ground for ideal lateral and medial movement. Fields that have have firm soil, as opposed to hard are ideal for firm ground soccer cleats. Injury and stress to the foot sole, ankle, knee, and back are far less likely to occur.
