Protect your Cleats with Cleatskins!

Posted on: December 5th, 2012 by Chris 2 Comments

My son Cameron is only 3 years old and very new to sports.  He has been playing First Kicks soccer for a few months now, so he has some experience with wearing cleats.  So when I was asked to review a new product called Cleatskins, I was excited to try them.

Cleatskins are just that!  They act as a skin to the bottom of your cleats.  These covers work for all kinds of cleats including soccer, football, baseball and golf.  Basically any type of cleated sport.  The idea behind them is to be able to move quickly from your game to the car to the locker room without needing another pair of shoes.  There is also a safety component too.  Cleatskins also  protect your cleats from getting chipped or dirty from walking in the mud.  It acts as a barrier between the cleat and the floor.  It also protects your floors!   And for a someone my sons age,  it protects my car from feet that end up kicking the back of my car seat.

Cleatskins are made from SKINTEKtm rubber, a molded rubber that is very flexible.  They slip on and off very easily.

Cameron tried out the Cleatskins this past weekend at soccer.  I helped him put them on the bottom of his cleats.  Once he put on his cleats and cleatskins,  he couldn’t tell the difference.  He actually thought they were cool.

Cleatskins come in different colors and sizes and start at $17.95.  As a sports mom, I would definitely buy these for my son’s cleats.  What do you think?  Would you use these?  Visit their website, to find out more.

    There are some safety issues regarding the cleats. Players (and officials, but that’s another story) can get hung up a bit because of them, and then they twist something or trip and fall. Ouch! But players who are wearing shoes without the cleats can slip and fall big time when trying to play the game without the traction benefits of soccer shoes. (Especially on grass, and even more so on grass that is wet!) That hurts, too. The performance advantages have generally been judged to outweigh (and by far) the extra burden of having to get the littler kids to wear them and to learn and deal with the risks the cleats impose.
