when doing stepovers.........

Post by opert56 » 07 Jul 2009, 19:12

when you do stepovers and change direction........ mostly do you use your instep of your foot to push the ball into the direction you want? or outside? im just wondering........

dude just watch the pros..... i would say it depends on your dribbling style... me, i push the ball with the external part of my shoe, but i rarely think about it, its natural already for me

I find it easier to use my instep when doing stepovers when moving(like running/jogging), but it's easier to use the outside of my foot after doing stepovers in a stationary position, in my opinion.

I never use my instep for dribbling...Look at messi and ronaldo, they both use the sides and front of their foot because it gives them a better feel for the ball and it lets you do gentler touches, using your instep makes the ball go ahead of yourself.
