Tips for acquiring your cleats:
Make friends with a family that has older kids and ask for hand me downs. Cleats are expensive and often only last a few seasons because your kid’s feet are growing.
Buy neutral colors. If you have both boys and girls, they can share a black or gray pair of cleats.
In a pinch, use soccer cleats. Soccer cleats are the most versatile of cleats. Unlike football, baseball and lacrosse cleats, which CANNOT be worn in Soccer. You can wear soccer cleats in lacrosse, football and baseball. (Not recommended for ultimate performance, but Officials will allow them.) Soccer cleats don’t have a toe cleat, and are made for speed and agility.
