Putting Adidas Men’s Ace 16.3 IN Indoor Soccer Shoes to the Test

Local coaches have put together an “old man’s” indoor/futsal pick-up league that plays Tuesday nights after practice in a high school gym.  The floor is high polish and can be super slick depending on what went on in the gym during the day and whether or not the janitors had made a few passes through with the broom.

I came across a pair of Adidas Men’s Ace 16.3 IN in a local sporting goods store in my size at a pretty deep discount and they looked like they would have outstanding traction – so I picked them up.

As a lifelong “Adidas guy” I was hoping that the Ace 16.3 IN would not disappoint – and thankfully, they didn’t.

I’ll start with the fit – these shoes were in my typical size for Adidas, but they were a little bit snug on the first wear (not uncomfortable, but if you are in between sizes, you might want to consider the half size up).  The sole has great support and cushioning through the heel and midsole which made moving in them very comfortable.

The synthetic upper is super lightweight (just 10 ounces) which kept my movements quick throughout the course of back to back 30 minute games. And, much like I had hoped – the Ace 16.3 IN had outstanding traction – I was able to make sharp cuts and pivots with no slipping and able to hit top speed on the polished floor with no trouble at all.

Almost the entire upper of the Men’s Ace 16.3 IN is textured, which is a nice feature for just a little added control in the extra tight confines of the indoor game.

I had two great games in these shoes and felt good post game (no aching, stiffness or soreness in the feet), so I’d definitely recommend them for anyone who plays on a hard or polished surface.  Grab your pair of Adidas Men’s Ace 16.3 IN indoor soccer shoes right here.

Top Men’s Indoor Soccer Shoe – Adidas Men’s Mundial Goal

When it comes to soccer shoes (indoor and outdoor, grass and turf), I’m a firm believer in the products Adidas puts out.  I absolutely love the Samba Classic (have been wearing them for years), but I can definitely get behind the Adidas Men’s Mundial Goal indoor shoe as well.

The Men’s Mundial Goal features a sturdy and flexible K Leather upper.  This super supple material not only provides a great feel for the ball (excellent touch), but it is designed to stretch to mold perfectly to your foot to create the most comfortable environment for play possible. (Because K-Leather is known to stretch, many players and proponents recommend buying a half size small to compensate.)

The Mundial Goal delivers outstanding support, without being restrictive and the EVA insole/midsole technology makes for super comfortable long term wear.  This is key to maintaining top performance on the court as many indoor leagues have their teams playing multiple times per day. (It’s hard to deliver an MVP caliber performance on the court when you’ve got aching feet)

The leather upper makes the Mundial Goal indoor shoe just a little more expensive than some of the top mesh/synthetic shoes, but the extra expense is worth it if you are looking to create a “custom” fit feel on the indoor soccer court.

You’ll also get outstanding traction and great grip from these indoor shoes.  This means you can finish those explosive drives to the net or track down the opposition before they have a chance to shoot.
