User Guide adidas Firm Ground
Premium Soccer’s retail location being situated in the harsh cold country that is Canada, most Canadian soccer players primarily play on artificial grass surfaces. This begs the question that almost every soccer enthusiast asks and that every single current soccer player should know the answer to:
Should footwear designed for natural grass be used on these artificial surfaces?
The short and simple answer to the question above is No! We often use a car metaphor to explain it to customers: winter tires are not meant for summer conditions, so you can always use them and they will work, but they are not designed for that purpose.
- A Firm Ground shoe (FG) is not designed to be played on artificial grass surfaces.
- One of the possible outcomes from misusing an FG shoe is its quick deterioration.
- An issue with using the wrong stud configuration on a certain surface is the breaking of any guarantee with the manufacturer.
- A common issue becomes sole separation where the bonding between the plastic outsole begins to detach from the upper material.This often occurs around the instep and front toe where most passing and shooting originates.
