Overview Of Features

Comfort is certainly a priority for children’s footwear, and it is enhanced in these soccer cleats by the fact that the upper is water resistant thus preventing the child’s socks and feet from getting all wet and soggy should it start raining. Further comfort is provided around the rim of the shoe with cushioning along the sides and behind the ankle area. The sole of your child’s foot will benefit from the padded insole which helps to cushion them when they land. Soccer skills are helped by the stitching patterns on the upper which provide texturing that help enhance your child’s control when the ball arrives. The fold-over tongue also provides better ball contact when your child is striking the ball with the front of their foot, which should mean better passes and more goals. Underfoot there are no fewer than 14 round molded rubber studs that ensure that your child’s grip on firm surfaces is assured. This will give them confidence as they are playing with the knowledge that they won’t slip. It also means anytime they are turning or running they can do so more effectively. Although the Vizari soccer shoes are lightweight, they are also durable so they should last a decent length of time.

How To Get The Most Out Of Them

As with most footwear, these soccer cleats might feel a bit stiff when a child first puts them on. Once they have played in them a couple of times the shoes should loosen a little. One option to speed this up might be for them to wear a second pair of socks to help stretch the uppers more quickly. Always ensure the laces are tied securely, without over tightening them as this can lead to the footwear feeling very tight around a child’s feet. The cleats on the undersole are designed for playing soccer on firm grass pitches, and this is where the most grip will be felt. On softer surfaces, the footwear will not give as much grip, which might hinder how well a child can play, and can even be a safety issue especially for younger children in terms of them slipping and falling over. After use, the soccer shoes should be wiped clean, and any dirt or grass stuck in the cleats underneath should be removed.

Alternative

An alternative pair of kids’ soccer cleats are the Hawkwell Athletic Soccer Shoes. These are great soccer shoes for kids learning to play soccer or who have already caught the soccer playing bug. They have sizes available for toddlers and go up to sizes for 12 years of age. They have a wide range of colors to choose from and in terms of cost, they have a similar price to Vizari’s soccer shoes.

Conclusion

There is no rule that says for children must be wearing top of the range, branded soccer cleats endorsed by a soccer superstar to enjoy playing soccer. In fact, children can feel as comfortable, and play as skillfully, in soccer cleats that come from less well-known brands. That is certainly the case with the Vizari Striker FG Soccer Shoes. They give kids very comfortable footwear for playing soccer in, and they provide a level of protection to help them feel confident when tackling or shooting. They are also very durable which means they should last well and considering the price is less than $30, they are great value for money.
