In the winter months we find two types of players.

Some might argue that it’s the same as indoor football, but don’t worry we also go the futsal players covered.

Indoor and futsal shoes

It’s important to get the right shoes for the job, and that’s why you have to spend some minutes on reading this blog. You might say that indoor shoes can be used for both types of football, and this will work for you as a short-term solution. But if you are keen on using a lot of time on futsal or taking it more seriously, then you have to invest your money in some proper futsal shoes.

They might look the same at first, but there are some differences. An indoor shoe is made with a gum rubber flat outsole and is often made as an indoor version of the football boots made for FG, AG or other outdoor surfaces. This means that you will get some of the same technologies of the upper, while the outsole is changed to a rubber outsole, so you don’t slip around on the indoor surface.

Futsal shoes are designed for a faster game, and due to the quick movement and skills, the shoes are made with a lighter design. The outsole is also made of rubber, but with a lower profile than indoor shoes. This will help you with your movement and maneuverability on the courts. Furthermore, futsal shoes are often a bit stiffer or harder on the toe box, due to you often shoot quickly with your toe in futsal, so this will benefit your game. If you are looking for new futsal shoes, then we’ll recommend you take a look on the futsal specialists Joma or Mizuno.
