If you're looking for superior traction and stability on the diamond, DICK'S Sporting Goods offers a wide selection of men's baseball cleats and women's softball cleats. Available in four configurations including metal, interchangeable, turf and molded, cleats are chosen based on the anticipated playing conditions and personal preference.
- For athletes who routinely play on hard surfaces, traditional metal cleats may be the best choice.
- Athletes that compete in varied conditions may find the flexibility that interchangeable cleats offer is a big benefit.
- If you play on artificial surfaces, you may prefer turf cleats because they're a flexible option and much more forgiving on concrete or asphalt surfaces.
- Molded cleats provide superior comfort and are a more durable option than metal on concrete and asphalt surfaces.
Whatever your choice, DICK'S Sporting Goods has an excellent selection of men's baseball cleats and women's softball cleats from top brands like Nike®, adidas® & more to meet your needs.
For those searching for a good overall baseball shoe, molded cleats are often considered the best and most useful option. Featuring studs made of rubber, TPU or hard plastic, molded baseball cleats perform well in most conditions and are among the most easily maintained form of baseball shoes.
In addition, they also perform well in a variety of playing conditions by providing excellent traction, stability and offer different levels of ankle support based on the height of the shoe.
Molded baseball cleats are one of the most cost effective footwear options and are allowed by almost all baseball leagues and organizations for play, unlike metal baseball cleats.
For those just starting in baseball, a pair of kids’ baseball cleats is necessary equipment. Youth baseball cleats are designed to improve lateral movement, support the ankle and offer better performance on both turf and dirt, while soccer shoes are much lighter, constructed for greater agility and offer limited protection.
When selecting baseball cleats for kids, finding shoes with a good fit, leather construction and proper spike length are considered among the most important guidelines.
If you’re interested in finding a pair of youth baseball cleats for a child in your life, come to DICK’S Sporting Goods to find shoes that will give them the performance and protection they need.
