Turf shoes on regular grass?

Post by BJ7 »

Alright, I have a question. Will my brand new turf shoes (Nike Tiempo Classic AG) perform well on regular firm ground grass fields?

Moved to boots section, when its dry in like summer or spring or whatever i play on grass in my astro turf trainers and its absolutely fine, i wouldn't reccomend it on wet grass though you slip all over the place.

Muchos Gracias...I play in the fall, so hopefully the grass is dry.

But I'm also questioning the length of my cleats' molded studs..can you show me a picture of your turf shoes?

you could.. If they have enough traction (if the sole isn't at all fu**ed up), you wont even slip as much in a wet field...

Still, you will slip quite a bit more than if you just had cleats..
and the other players will have a bit more traction...

If you think about it, that might make the difference.. In that play, that you need to win it, and the opposing player can run that bit faster than you, or has that extra .5 seconds of acceleration just cause his shoe permits it too..

The best is to get accustomed to cleats and in grass.. Its better in anyway.

Thanks for the advice panchester. I play on usually dry long grass, in the fall, so I should be ok...I have a pair of back-up firm-ground cleats if all else fails
