Global Turf Shoes Market 2017-2021
About Turf Shoes
Turf shoes have extremely durable rubber outsoles. Compact rubber studs and patterns on the outsoles of artificial turf shoes aid in improving the traction on hard, natural fields and artificial turf. Turf shoes are suited for soccer training and as back-up shoes on hard surfaces. Turf shoe designs ensure maximum mobility. The height of a turf shoe is generally low-top, and the bottom of the shoe features dozens of small rubber studs with a minute degree of spacing between each stud. The studs ensure a firm grip on the turf surface. Turf shoes, thus, reduce the possibility of slipping. Therefore, the primary goal of this type of footwear is to help gain traction on artificial grass surfaces.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Lack of required infrastructure and popularity. Many countries across the globe do not have the required infrastructure to support all types of sports. As a trend, most people of a specific nation pursue the sport that is widely popular in the nation. This limits the market for other sports in terms of revenue growth. As a result, other sports that could have gained popularity remain stunted and underdeveloped.
