Soccer Cleats for HG, FG and SG. What’s the Difference?

Almost every model of soccer cleats is made to be suitable for a different field condition.

HG (hard ground)- for playing on hard surfaces.

FG (firm ground) – for playing on firm surfaces.

SG (soft ground) – for playing on soft surfaces.

Why is it important to have the right soccer cleats for different types of field?

In order to play soccer to your best abilities, you have to have soccer cleats. For several reasons but the most important is: traction. The studs will prevent you from slipping, giving you opportunity to turn, stop and accelerate with ease.

In order to achieve it, soccer cleats outsole (bottom part of the shoe) has several hard rubber, plastic or metal studs that sink into the surface providing a good grip. But the studs have to be long enough to offer good traction and short enough not to cause discomfort from applying too much pressure on the feet.

In other words, the length of the studs and their count depends on types of the surface they would be the most adequate for.

It basically means that soccer cleats for HARD GROUND (surface) have short studs. They provide you with enough amount of traction but at this same time they don’t apply too much pressure on your feet causing discomfort when your cleats are unable to dig into hard ground. If you play on very hard fields, Turf shoes (cleats – TF) would be your best choice.

SOFT GROUND (SG) cleats come with removable (in most cases) studs. There are few different lengths of the studs for different conditions of soft fields (soft and wet for example), so you can adjust them properly.

FIRM GROUND (FG) cleats are the most universal. FG cleats are good for all field types without going to extreme (very hard and very soft). Of course they are the most adequate for fields with the firm surface (something between hard and soft). But if you play on different types of fields and can’t afford to have two or three types of soccer cleats, the FG is probably the most ultimate choice.

Let's Understand Your Soccer Shoes

Whoever loves to play Soccer or Rugby needs a pair of shoes which not only protect the feet but enhances one's performance also.

Common features of soccer shoes

Soccer shoes have come very far from its earliest design. Nowadays it resembles more of a sneaker which does not cover your ankle.

Soccer shoes contain studs below the soles to enhance the grip of feet on the ground. A plastic studded shoe is appropriate for solid surface, whereas a rubber or screw studded shoes are good for grass fields.

Customized soccer shoes

These days' players are wearing and buying shoes of their own choice and according to their specific needs. For this, they are making special demands from the seller. For example, if one wants to improve grip on their non-dominant feet, then they can wear screwed-in studded shoes which improve grip on the surface. Players who want to improve the performance of their active leg (right or left leg) can buy rubber, plastic studded shoes.

No matter what you buy, you should definitely take note of these things before buying your shoes.

  1. Select good brands – If you want to invest in good shoes, then why not choose a trusted and good brand on the soccer field. A good brand manufacture shoes by considering all important things which are necessary for players and their performance. Therefore, in order to save some money, do not buy any substandard soccer shoes.
  2. Decide your budget – When you go to the store or scroll down some online page for buying soccer shoes, always plan beforehand how much you are going to spend on your shoes. Suppose if you are a beginner then there is no need at all to buy expensive and high-end professional shoes. Go for simple yet comfortable shoes.
  3. Know your feet size- a perfect fit is all you need for a good soccer game performance. Whenever you go for buying new shoes, always give importance to your feet comfort. Try two, three different brands as everyone has different feet shape and every company / brand cannot give you your style or perfect size. Therefore, you need to look for your own preferences and priority before buying any shoes. Your feet should easily accommodate in shoes and your fingers should not touch the end of the shoe. The gap of ½ or ¼ inches would do the work.

What you can do break in your new soccer shoes

  • Put on your shoes and keep it wearing at your home while completing your general routine. Do it every day at your home. Within 3-4 days you will be comfortable in your new shoes.
  • Wear your socks and shoes and then soak your feet in lukewarm water for 15 minutes. Your feet and shoe would align with each other comfortably. Tie your lace and then you can play your game without drying your shoes. Automatically it would get dried up and when you will put off your shoes, you'll find it has aligned itself with your feet shape and comfort.

Danjeon Breathing for Depression

Danjeon breathing is one of the most effective methods to bring relief to those suffering from depression. Depression places heavy burdens on the family, individual and society and the number of cases of depression are increasing around the world. Economic uncertainty and lack of direction are some of the largest reasons for depression but solutions have been few and far between. Until now.

Danjeon breathing has been a great solution for depression for thousands of years since its discovery around the beginning days of acupuncture. In fact, it's been rare to find many cases of depression through Korean history, and danjeon breathing is one stronger reasons. But first, let's look into the origins of depression to see how danjeon breathing can help.

One theory of depression is that it comes from runaway emotions and negative thinking. At times we have a negative situation in our lives and we do not know how to respond to it, and it leaves an emotional scar or trauma. Or we have problems with our co-workers or friends or loved ones and we end up blaming or criticizing them. Unresolved trauma, months and years of criticism and blame make one tired, exhausted, dark and over time can lead to depression because of a misplaced view of a dark future. Depression often follows from this sequence.

Danjeon breathing is the way out of the darkness and the way to keep one from falling into the cave in the first place. Danjeon breathing rings in 7% more oxygen to the body; not only that, it extends one's breathing and expends the lungs. Slower breathing, deeper breaths allows more oxygen to penetrate to the brain. Longer breathing slows down one's brain waves, producing calm, clarity and happiness.

One then starts to smile naturally from the inside. One begins to have happier thoughts and to see the world with a positive outlook. "The cup is half full," you begin to say. Your understanding of others widens and you can easily put yourself in others' shoes and give them the benefit of the doubt. You think of a bright future, and even if things do not go well today, you see them as merely pebbles on the road rather than a huge barrier. Your positivity overflows and you begin to attract more positive people and prosperity into your life.

With happiness, brightness and understanding, your confidence grows and fears decrease. You step out of the cave of blame and darkness into a field of hope and beauty.

There is really no better natural aid to depression than danjeon breathing.

T20 World Cup Cricket

What will the status of the winners be when they emerge victorious from the tournament this month? It might sound an odd question, but think about how absurd it would be in any other sport. Imagine that six months after the FIFA World Cup, another tournament, also called the World Cup, was played with pretty much the same teams fielding pretty much the same players in a pretty similar tournament format with pretty similar viewing figures (both at the grounds and on the telly), but with 45-minute matches rather than the full 90.

I'm not questioning the existence of T20, because I love cricket, and I understand that this ultra-intense, short format of the game means people can watch a whole game in an evening after work; it gives the game more appealing, more coverage, more peak-time advertising opportunity and hence, more money. It's also a great spectacle.

I just think its going to be weird when there are two world champions of cricket.

Test cricket is, of course, an identical different kettle of fish; tactics and gameplay are wholly different from the one day game. The length of time encounters take, and the massive likelihood of draws, means that a ranking system is the only way to produce a 'world number one team', whereas 50 overs-a-side lends itself to definite results in the finite time of a tournament. 20-20 is very much like 50-50 in its style and ethos: score as many runs as you can as quickly as you can; restrict as many runs as stingily as you can. It, too, can be played in a tournament, which is why we have this second 'World Cup'.

The winners will, therefore, claim to be world champions of cricket, and the best in the shortened version of the game. But the Australia team that lifted the World Cup in the West Indies a few months ago already claim that title. And 'Twenty20 world champions' does not really mean anything, at least yet: so few T20s are played internationally (England has played the most in history with a grand total of 6) India has played just 2) that no-one will really care. Also, the games are so short that a second-rate international team could conceivably lift the trophy. The flaws in a Zimbabwe side could possibly be papered over for three hours at a time that would have unduly caused a collapse over a whole day or more. What if a 'minnow' wins the whole thing? They are played so infinitely by the test-playing nations that the 'world champion' label will be redundant until they play the tournament again.

One solution would be to have an annual or biennial T20 tournament, outside of which international T20 is not played. Then it would be clear that T20, while popular and important, is not of the same caliber and class as the official cricket world cup, in the same way that the Six Nations is keenly contested every year, but with the winning side not making any pretensions to overall global superiority. Maybe the difficulties will disappear as T20 establishes its niche. But the simplest solution this time round, to avoid any argument or confusion, would be if Australia won the discussed thing. Doubtless they will oblige.
