The Turf King is a “wide last” shoe, meaning that it is more of a one-size-fits-all field hockey shoe, from standard to wide width.
The Dita Turf King is our classic shoe. In the past four Olympics it has been worn by players collecting nine of ten medals!
Standing in a pair of Turf Kings a player’s feet are actually closer to the plane of the playing surface than in most other shoes, which is good for stability. This is made possible by the differing densities of the insole and midsole, working together with the classic Dita tread design, which features side-studs that flair outward to increase stability and maneuverability. These particular elements also provide extra shock absorption.
The blending of all these details creates a shoe that maximizes a players ability to play the game of field hockey and stay on their feet. Most players order a half size larger than their normal shoe.
