We have entered the time of year in the Northeast where parents are eagerly signing their kids up for indoor soccer or futsal so they can continue to get ample touches and improve their game despite the frigid temperatures outside. This fast paced style of the outdoor game that we love to watch in the spring and fall seasons requires a different style of gear if you want your son or daughter to play as well on the court as they do on the pitch.
My “go to” indoor soccer shoe for young girls and boys is the Adidas Samba Classic. This shoe is not as fancy as some of the other kids indoor soccer shoes we’ll take a look at in the coming weeks, but in my mind – performance always outdoes style whether you are on the court, the turf or the grass.
The Samba is the shoe I wore to play indoor soccer, its the first shoe my daughter wore to play indoor and the shoe my son wears to play indoor. And despite hour after hour of serious action in some fast paced games – we’ve never experienced a “performance” related issue. No rips, no tears, no blowouts – these shoes are now (and have been) constructed exceedingly well to stand up to the regular use and abuse of a full season of indoor soccer.
The Adidas Samba Classics have a lightweight synthetic leather upper and and the sole has outstanding grip – there is no sacrificing speed in this indoor soccer shoe. Size runs fairly true and the Samba is very comfortable to wear (neither kid complains of pain even after days with multiple games).
If you are looking for a rock solid, high performance indoor soccer shoe for kids – you can confidently look past many of the ultra high priced flashy options and grab a pair of Adidas Samba Classics here.
