Never done it, is it ok or would ruin? I'm thinking of spending £28 on these just for astroturf football but I don't know if it'll ruin -

No, dont wear normal boots on astro, its shouldnt ruin the boots but it will most likely feel uncomfortable, wear trainers if you cant wear astros (but £28 for those boots seems pretty good)

Never mind that, people who wear proper football boots on astroturf are *********.

Remember that most of the other players will only be wearing trainers or astros. A simple accidental stand on the foot is ******* agony.

Its you can seriously injure someone wearing boots on astroturf pith, the reason being that chances are, you will be playing 5 a side or some casual form of the game, and the opposing players will not be wearing shin pads.

But if all are wearing some kind of protection, GO FOR IT!

They are blades remember, not studs. Would this not be ok in terms of the boot itself then?

studs are always tremendously painful when not on grass due to the pressure they exert on the foot, not sure about blades though, but would expect similar. Also, when I for some reason or another have worn studs on the astoturf, it's always been tremendously slippy. The whole point of blades is to dig into the grass, so I don't know why you'd want to buy them with the intention of using them elsewhere. just buy astroturf trainers

i wear my old predators (blades) on astro every week. The blades are warn quite flat and blunt so not much of a problem.

Pros - Makes you taller, quicker, sharper agility and people pull out of tackles.
Cons - more risk of turning ankle, less popularity, slightly affects shooting and passing range as it become difficult to get under the ball.

Overall, wearing blades should manager as long as he doesn't notice

Screw in studs are a no-no, but moulded studs where the weight is spread across 15 or so studs is usually fine- thats what we wear for training on astro. Theyre better on the third generation plastic grass though. People will get trodden on whether they are on grass or on astroturf, its never nice when it happens, but it still does. If its a competitive game, and you feel more comfortable in moulded studs, it makes little difference on the newer surfaces- better than just trainers any day of the week.

^ That's what I wear on astro.

If you're playing under a coach, he won't let you play using studs/blades (we're not even allowed to wear blades outside!). On the sportsdirect website I'm pretty sure there's a page dedicated to astro turf boots? Just look there because the ones you're after are for firm ground which means the blades will be well pronounced and sharp.

The truthful answer is it depends on the astro- if its like artificial grass, or like a hard flat surface.

I play on both astro and a field, would I be fine just getting soft ground boots and unscrewing the studs. Also the astro is more of a flat surface with sand on it than the plastic grass with black rubber bits on the floor.

Because plastic pitches have a lot of torque on knees and ankles when pivoting or when coming out of the air and planting feet I would but just normal trainers or astro turf trainers and would stay away from plastics blades or studs in not saying it will stop you from injury but it will cut the % down dramatically
