One of the most common questions we are asked here at Football Plus is Blades or Studs? So below on the page our team has come up with the answer.
Blades are said to have better traction due to the larger surface area. They have more contacts with the bottom of your foot and the ground which spread weight evenly amongst your body. Blades tend to be used more for side movements but are known to get caught into the ground. However companies such as X blades have come up with their Quick Release System to help prevent injuries from bladed boots.
Studs are and have been the most popular choice by many players. Studs are generally preferred in wetter conditions where you will sink into the ground. The lack of surface area will help you release quicker from the ground which helps aid injury prevention.
At the end of the day the only person who can answer this question is you. Take into consideration what football code you are playing, what the majority type of surfaces you will be playing on and how often you will be using them.
