Hockey Shoes

Field hockey shoes are specifically designed to provide traction, support, and comfort on the field. Choosing the right pair is crucial for your performance and injury prevention. Here’s a guide to help you select the best field hockey shoes:


Field hockey shoes typically have rubber or molded plastic cleats. The type of cleats you need depends on the field surface:

Turf Shoes: These have small rubber studs and are ideal for playing on artificial turf. They provide excellent traction without damaging the turf. Turf shoes also often have reinforced toes to protect against abrasion.

Molded Cleats: These shoes have larger, plastic cleats and are suitable for natural grass fields. Molded cleats provide good grip and are more versatile, allowing you to play on both grass and turf fields.

Fit and Comfort

Fit: Your shoes should fit snugly without being too tight. A snug fit ensures better control and reduces the risk of blisters.

Comfort: Look for shoes with cushioning and padding around the ankles and insoles. Comfortable shoes enhance your agility and endurance during the game.

Ankle Support

Low-Cut Shoes: Provide more flexibility and are suitable for players who prefer agility and speed.

Mid-Cut Shoes: Offer moderate ankle support, balancing flexibility and stability. They are a popular choice among many players.

High-Cut Shoes: Provide maximum ankle support and are ideal for players with a history of ankle injuries or those seeking extra stability.


Look for shoes made from high-quality materials that can withstand the rigors of the game. Reinforced areas, such as the toe and sides, can enhance the shoes’ durability.


Field hockey shoes should be breathable to keep your feet dry and comfortable during the game. Look for shoes with mesh panels or breathable materials that allow air circulation.

Brand and Reviews

Choose reputable brands known for their quality and durability. Reading reviews and getting recommendations from fellow players can also help you make an informed decision.


Set a budget based on your needs and preferences. While it’s essential to invest in a good pair of shoes, you can find options that offer excellent performance without breaking the bank.

Cleaning: Regularly clean your shoes after each game to remove dirt and mud. Use a soft brush and mild soap to clean the upper and sole.

Drying: Avoid direct sunlight and heat sources when drying your shoes, as excessive heat can damage them. Stuff them with newspaper to absorb moisture and help maintain their shape.

By considering these factors, you can find field hockey shoes that enhance your performance, provide adequate support, and ensure your comfort and safety on the field.
