Football equipment: moulded studs
Caring for bootsAstroturf bootsMoulded studsShinguardsScrew-in studsBladesUppers

A boot with moulded studs can have anything from 12 to 16 studs on its base.

These boots are usually best used on dry pitches.

The large number of studs gives you better support over a wider area, and they also reduce the risk of getting blisters.

If the conditions are wet or muddy then moulded studs will not give a particularly good grip compared to screw-in studs.
