The last time I played soccer, my cleats were ruined. I had to get new ones and for a while I had doubts about spending my money on something worth the while or cheap new equipment that didn’t last too long. In the end, I had to decide on some high-quality socks, shorts, and cleats, and throw in some shin pads, as well. The shin pads that I chose were the Vizari Malaga because I had heard nothing but good things about them and eventually found them to be reasonably lightweight and protective in a good sense. I had to get the L because I’m 5’11” but I didn’t find it particularly difficult to get the proper size because I came across a size chart that had been made available by the manufacturer.
Since ruining my cleats was the whole thing that started me off on doing a bit of research and renewing my entire equipment, I had to see what type was the best one for me. Based on the info that I found online, it seems that you’re supposed to pick cleats depending on the surface where you’re most likely to play soccer. It goes without saying that I wanted a universal pair of cleats for all sorts of surfaces but I found it very difficult to choose one over the next mostly because from spring to fall, I play soccer with my friends outside; when winter kicks in, I play on artificial ground. I’m not a well-seasoned player but I know for sure that I’m looking for quality at a reasonable price. I wanted a pair of cleats that was lightweight, sturdy enough and designed to allow quick passes. For me, it all boiled down to what I was looking to spend. From what I saw, there are roughly four categories of cleats depending on the price. Those that are priced above one hundred and fifty dollars are the best, but they’re not recommended for average users that don’t even plan to use them all that often. Eventually, I decided to spend around ninety dollars on a serious pair of cleats and that’s due to the fact that I am convinced that I’ll be able to use them some more in the feature, without having to worry about them getting damaged as easily as the last ones did.
As for the rest of the equipment, I found it very easy to select it as I didn’t have any trouble with the sizing nor with the material. I went online and checked for the best prices and details regarding size and fabric and was able to choose a pair of shorts, a shirt, and some good socks, as well. I spent around two hundred dollars on the clothes, but I don’t think that’s a lot of money given that I’ll be able to use them for many years to come. Basically, a good pair of cleats and the best shin guards can last you forever provided that you take good care of them.
