Cleatskins are a really cool product that can really come in handy for several different applications. First off, the product is made of a very high quality rubber. It is made to slip over your firm ground soccer shoes to protect the cleats from wear. There are grips all along the inside of the Cleatskins to grip the cleats and the sides of your boots. They also fit very well over your cleats, as I tried them on several different pairs and it worked perfectly with all of them. They also come in a variety of sizes so that you can a perfect fit for your boots. Another cool thing is that they come in a variety of colors, so you can match them to your boots.
In terms of functionality, they work great. Because they fit so tightly, yet somehow manage to go on petty easily, they feel really natural when walking. The sole adds a little bit of height to the bottom, but they by no means feel like you are extra high off the ground when wearing them on your cleats. Note that they are not made for running. Another great reason to have a pair of these is for breaking in a new pair of boots. You can simply slip these on and wear your shoes around the house without worry of damaging your floors. Because they fit so well, you could even go out on some pavement to do some juggling with your Cleatskins if you wanted to.
So is it worth getting a pair? The answer is easily a yes. Whether you don’t want carry around a second pair of shoes when you go to play or you are breaking in a new pair of boots, Cleatskins are a great little accessory to have around. I would also recommend these for youth soccer players who are playing recreationally, as these will definitely extend the life of your boots. For the low price of $29.95 ($19.95 for kids sizes) you can’t go wrong with picking yourself up a pair of Cleatskins. – See more at: http://soccerreviewsforyou.com/cleatskins#sthash.BwBl2naG.dpuf
