4 Best Indoor Soccer Shoes, 30+ Shoes Tested in 2023

When talking about soccer cleats, many people quickly think about spiked footwear. While this is not wrong, it also does not give the whole picture. There are soccer cleats without spikes that are largely for indoor use. They are for training and a variant of soccer called futsal. As always, indoor soccer cleats are available for both men and women.

Almost every soccer cleat model, be it from Nike or Adidas or others, has an indoor version. Hence, finding the best one out of the many options can be an overwhelming task. There is no need to worry, though, since we at RunRepeat are here to help. We've created a list of the best indoor soccer cleats so that choosing won't be such a chore for you.

Curious as to how we picked the best indoor soccer cleats? Read the next section to learn a little more about our assessment process.

How we test indoor soccer shoes

As is the practice here at RunRepeat, we assign a Corescore to each indoor soccer cleat on record. This score is basically the weighted average of all the individual ratings given to it by experts, soccer players, and enthusiasts. Of course, experts' inputs are given more weight.

Aside from that, we also conduct our own detailed review of a shoes performance. To ensure objectivity, we do the following:

  • Purchase the cleats using our own funds; this is to avoid bias
  • Test the indoor soccer cleats in actual games; this is to get a more real-life feel.
  • Consider the input of other reviewers; this is to come up with a more comprehensive assessment.

Superb!
4.6 / 5 from 5,626 users
90 / 100 from 7 experts

Pros

  • Great ball control
  • Little break-in time
  • Impressive support
  • Excellent ball contact
  • Fascinating nifty style
  • Worth the price

Cons

  • Poor durability
  • Too delicate suede material

Verdict

The Mundial Goal did not just deliver the trademark Adidas look and feel, but also great performance and contact with the ball. On the flip side, questions of durability came into the picture despite the massive appreciation for this classic shoe. It may not be as technologically packed as the Adidas Predator 19.1 Trainers, but it still captures a lot of professionals and amateurs alike.
