I play indoor soccer on field turf, and it feels just like normal grass under you, but if you fall on it it feels basically like astro turf, and ground up tires are used to cushion the "grass", at least thats what they use where play and at ford field, the Lion's stadium, and your shoes get filled up with the tires and makes running/walking pretty uncomfortable.
