Yes, you can. All our turf products are designed and manufactured with great tuft bind. The term "Tuff Bind" is used in artificial grass industry to define how strong fibers are attached to its backings. On an average, our products' tuft bind is at 45 newton and above, in another word, it takes a force of 45 newton in order to pull out the fiber from its backings. Almost all of our products come with engineered fibers which present both beauty, function and durabilities, same fibers are also used in our sports fields products which will withheld the abuse of shoe cleats. At our factory, we conduct lisport testings on all fibers and most of our fibers will last more than 10,000 cycles, more than half of our fibers last more than 20,000 cycles. To give you a reference point on lisport testing cycles: most of FIFA certified sports fields will require a pass of 5,000 cycles of lisport testing. 

So feel free to wear your shoes or cleats on the turf, you won't hurt or damage our superior quality products.

I was a bit worried that wearing shoes would ruin my artificial grass but thanks for clarifying that out.

Players do use their shoes all the time while playing but the turf still looks awesome.

I saw some branded boots that are perfect for artificial turfs to avoid slip.
