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

Boots with screw-in studs are the most popular.

They offer a player the opportunity to adjust their footwear depending on the conditions.

If the pitch is particularly muddy then it is a good idea to use a longer set of studs, changing to shorter studs on a drier day.

And an extra set of studs is cheaper to buy than another pair of boots.

When changing or tightening studs, it is a good idea to apply a bit of grease to the thread, to prevent rusting.
