Indoor Soccer Shoes/Boots/You Know What I Mean


In my continuing effort to take one physical education class each semester at Auburn (journalism has a lot of elective hours to play around with), I signed up for an indoor soccer class.

Instructor recommended buying indoor shoes for the class. I've only played outdoor soccer before, so I'm going to have to make a purchase soon.

I know some of you on here play in indoor leagues. I want a good quality shoe without breaking the bank. What shoes do you guys where when you play? What should I look for, what should I stay away from?

I have t90 laser 3's and like them. They have good touch and sweet spot plus I haven't had any kind of issues with blisters. I don't know how many places will have the 3's anymore but I'm sure any other t90 would be just as good.

Can't go wrong with Samba's for quality/price (usually about $50-$60)


I have Vapor's for my indoor and outdoor cleats and love them both. (my indoor vapor's were $70)

Dandy, my instructor is from Brazil.

The first thing he said in class today: "You thought you were signing up for indoor soccer. I lied. We are playing futsal this semester."

Then he proceeded to explain the rules differences, origin of the game, etc.

"I don't like what Americans call indoor soccer. It's like hockey with your feet...walls and such. We are playing a more beautiful game...we are playing futsal."

Spain and Brasil are powers in futsal.

Spain was world champion many times before the real football side got theirs.

The now defunct Futsal brand in Madrid was a client of mine back in the 90'´s. I also worked with them trying to OEM a Spanish Copa Mundial, Beckenbauer, etc., for another football brand.

Kelme futsal shoes are great, as are Munich.

LSU's rec had a futsal league a couple of years back. It wasn't very fun but I contribute that mainly to how small the courts were (we just played on their basketball courts). I'm sure it's much more fun on a regulation size court.

With that being said, I like indoor better. Ball is out of play less and you can do things like playing passes off the wall to yourself. It is a pretty American sport so it doesn't surprise me that a Brazilian wouldn't like it as futsal exemplifies joga bonito more.

He started showing us highlight videos of futsal's Falcao in class today. I had heard of him before, but had never watched video of him. What a monster.

A ridiculous backheel lob shot free kick goal: LINK

Along with getting pieces of rubber in my shoes, this was my least favorite part of indoor:

playing passes off the wall to yourself


Of course, it had a lot to do with other people being able to do the same

We're playing on Beard-Eaves's (Auburn's old basketball arena) court. He said real futsal courts are larger, but we don't have a free court that size on campus.

I´ve played in weekly evening leagues, similar to rec basketball. It´s quasi federated (as we´re old farts), with sponsors, unis, et al.

I´ve seen alot of broken legs, concussions, broken ankles, etc.

I'd love to be in a league like that after graduation.

Then I probably shouldn't tell you that the instructor is graduating at the end of the semester, and he told us that the class might not be offered again.
