    nope can't find anything to be honest. Even SR4U doesn't have them in, and its annoying. My local shop has them for an astronomical $150, which is nearly the price of the Proximos.

    Thought about getting them but they seem so chunky

    Hi all,

    I am new to the forum and joined up in the hope I could some advice on indoor shoes.

    I have narrow flat feet and have spent hundreds of dollars on shoes that feel ok at the time but turn out to be the wrong fit for my feet.

    I am in search of a pair of indoor shoes which lock my feet in, more so in the mid foot. I find that there is too much movement in the mid foot area. This is especially noticeable when I shoot or go for a long pass. I am a right footer and when I am in the process of shooting or passing, my weight is transfers to my left foot (obviously) and I get either ankle roll or movement within the shoe. As a result, my accuracy is way off. This is only something I have worked out most recently.

    I am better off wearing a stability type insole? Or is there an indoor shoe that will suit my type of foot?

    I would really appreciate some advice.

    Thank you.

    Are you sure it's not you that's the problem and not the actual shoe? Not trying to be a dick but if you have spent hundreds on different types of shoes and still get the ankle roll then surely it's not the shoe causing it?
    With that being said i would always go with Nike Mercurial for indoor, Maybe try ones that have ankle support like these, not sure how the lock down is but i would guess pretty good. https://www.nike.com/gb/t/mercurialx-proximo-ii-indoor-court-football-shoe-Yk4Wo0

    Thanks for the response. I get what you are saying but I am definitely not the problem. Old enough to know better.

    The link you send no longer exists. I’ll google.

    Thanks again

    Of the current crop of indoor and turf boots (I'm interested in futsal, turf and cleats), which ones have the most padding and heel comfort?

    My kids have both dealt with Sever's and I always put in aftermarket insoles. However, they have to be thin to fit, so you need padding built in to the shoes. One of the best I've found was the Decathlon Sifter 900, but they are discontinued and I don't have a store here to go check out their others (they also had a terrible "cleat" pattern for deeper turf - definitely an astroturf shoe).

    Haven't heard of that model before so I googled it. Are you sure you can't buy those from Decathlon's own site?

    Of the good indoor shoes I have used I think Lunar Gato 2's lunarlon has been one of the best cushion. Still I don't know if it's enough for your needs.

    I will try one off-topic question. What kids tennis shoes would you recommend? with velcro strip or with shoelaces? I know that in soccer there are all cleats with shoelaces
