When purchasing football boots for kids, it's important to remember that they will have different needs than adult players. Kids' feet are still developing, so choosing a boot that fits well and offers proper support is crucial.
Take our popular Future Z 4.2 FG/AG Youth Football Boots, for example. Designed to be light and flexible, these boots come equipped with the latest PUMA technology, including a Dynamic Motion System outsole and advanced stud configuration for enhanced multidirectional traction, ensuring young athletes can dribble, strike, and score with ease.
Studs are metal or plastic moulds found on the bottom of a football boot and help provide extra grip and traction. In a sport like football, where the game moves at a breakneck pace, studs can help players remain agile and keep up with the play.
PUMA kids' football boots are available with or without studs, depending on the player's preferences and the association's rules. For a studless boot, try our Ultra 4.4 IT Youth Football Boots. If you prefer to have a little more traction, consider the Future 4.4 FG/AG Youth Football Boots.
Cleats is another term for studs, and whether or not your kid really needs them will depend on a few factors.
To start with, be sure to check if there are any competition rules that dictate whether or not kids' football boots with cleats are permitted. Some associations will ban certain types of cleats — like metal, for example — whilst others may not have any rules on this issue.
Studs are usually crafted to suit specific surfaces. Many of our kids' football boots, for example, are suited for FG/AG — Firm Ground/Artificial Ground — pitches. If your child is routinely playing on such a surface, consider a pair of our Future Z 3.2 FG/AG Youth Football Boots for enhanced multidirectional traction.
Children grow up so quickly, and many parents may be tempted to buy kids' soccer boots a size up to ensure they get at least a season or two use out of them.
Unfortunately, this strategy can backfire pretty quickly. Kids' football boots that are too big increase the likelihood of injury, which can be detrimental to young athletes at the early stages of their development.
In order to maximise the benefits of wearing PUMA football boots, it's best to buy a pair that fits snugly without rubbing or causing blisters. Check our size guide online for more information, and keep in mind that many of our boots feature a lace closure for a snug fit.
Parents: give your kids the tools they need to play like their heroes. A pair of PUMA kids' soccer boots will have them dancing up the pitch, dodging opponents and nailing penalty kicks with ease.
