Shoes play a big role for a player it enhance the performance of a player, helps you play at your best and prevent you from having an injury. There's a different kind of soccer shoe each one performed dependent to the playing surface, playing ground and field condition.Choosing the right shoe is a must for a player and a proper fitting shoe is a game essential.

I've been in Malaysia once to attend an AFC Referees course and to officiate AFC Under-14 Tournament, May 26-June 6, 2010. AFC instructors teach us some techniques of picking right soccer boot and i share it to you some of it, Here are some tips for you!

1st : The shoe sole must be hard it cant be bend or twist for durability while you are moving or running. Hard shoe sole support your feet from all the impact you get from running, jumping and everything you do in game and also protect you from injury. It does have a dozen of studs on the sole to provide extra grip. without the studs you will be sliding all over the place and may cause injury to yourself and also to other players. Shoe hard-sole help provide traction and better control.

2nd : The tip of your boots should fit as close to the end of your foot as possible without touching your toes for performance and comfort. A 1/4 to 1/2 inch gap is ideal. As a basic rule of thumb, every 1/2 size will yield about 4mm (3/16 inch) of length. The tip should be narrow for better feel of controlling the ball.

3rd : The width of the boot should fit the whole of your feet snugly even tough you can give a little space in front side of boot for durability. Its because your Toe Mound is expanding when you're stepping forward to run or move. Proper fit is essential, provides better mobility and keep your foot steady inside the boot. With or without space, its up to you which one help you play well, controlled and kick ball well, and run and turn with comfort.

4th : The back heel of the boot should be hard so it will absorb shock while you run during the game. Shocks from running can effect performances or causes fatigue because our body weight is concentrated in heel and absorb force during impact on the ground, so you are more pron in injury. The hard back heel of you're boot can prevent stress on Heel to avoid unnecessary injury. With it, It will help you perform a better kick and most off-it your best performance.
