Artificial grass is a surface with a growing influence, seeing as though it is no longer just used in the winter season. This has made the need for boots, which are designed especially for the job, much bigger and we have therefore taken a look at some of the best ones on sale right now

The increasing need for boots for artificial grass is rising and this has far from passed by the biggest brands. They have to accommodate this constantly developing need, begun making their top models with the so-called AG stud-configurations. This gives you a sublime opportunity to get yourself a top range boot for use on artificial grass, unlike before, where you had to settle for a take down model.

Many have just opted to use the classic FG-studs, when there needed to be trained or played a match on artificial grass. This unfortunately means, that you loose your right to return on the boot and should you get unlucky and something happened to your boot, you would have no chance of swapping them. This risk is luckily one you do not risk running, if you use the boot with AG-studs and to sweeten the deal AG-studs also work fine on grass.

Boots with AG-studs differ on a number of areas from the normal FG-studs, this makes them better suited for use on artificial grass. First and foremost they are shorter, because you on artificial grass do not need to penetrate the ground, like you would on grass. The shorter studs sharply reduce your chances of twisting your ankles, which is something they will surely thank you for.

Furthermore the studs on AG-boots are significantly softer and the reason for this is like the above. To optimise shock absorbency in the boots and spare your feet, knees, ankles and other joints. On top of that there are also more studs on the AG-boots, which increases the dispersion of power and thus stability.

In previous times it has been hard to see why you would choose AG-boots, because they only came in takedown models, but now things are very different. Adidas F50 Adizero, Predator LZ, Nike CTR360 Maestri and Mercurial Vapor IX are just some of the many topmodels, which can now be bought with the optimised stud-configuration. It is now impossible to look beyond them as a strong alternative, when you are looking for new boots.

The new topmodel boots that come with AG stud-configurations don't differ from their FG brothers in any way, apart from the studs. This means you get the same performance out of your AG boots, which makes them a very attractive choice.

If AG-boots are starting to sound a little more appealing, then we don't blame you. Some of the most popular and best boots on sale come with AG-studs.
