Soccer Shoes

Those who play soccer know that foot and ankle injuries are very common. We see ankle sprains and tears in our office everyday. The type of shoe you wear is very important to help prevent common soccer injuries. 

Soccer shoes should offer:

  • a reinforced toe
  • wide toe box
  • field-appropriate cleats
  • well-padded soles

Soccer cleats need to provide a support system that can help prevent ankle sprains and knee injuries. Young children should wear sneakers when they begin soccer as cleats can make the ankle unstable. Once a child turns 5 or 6, then they can be fitted for their first pair of cleats.  If you have an injury from playing soccer or want our doctors to check you cleats, call our office!
