There are a few types of soccer cleats, depending on the kind of surface you play on. Firm Ground cleats feature molded studs for use on hard surfaces, which is the most versatile and common choice. Soft Ground cleats are for loose or wet surfaces and feature longer and fewer studs, and are sometimes removable.
Cotton soccer underwear is typically not the best choice. This material absorbs moisture, allowing it to sit next to the skin. Stretchy synthetic fabrics typically make better athletic underwear. These types of fabrics are usually more breathable, and moisture evaporates from the skin more quickly when athletes wear them.
There are two basic categories of soccer shoes: cleats and turf shoes. Cleats work well on wet, muddy, and loose grass surfaces. Cleats with long studs work best in extremely slippery conditions because they dig deep into the surface. Cleats with short studs work best when the field is partially wet but mostly firm.
