    Any time you’re wearing cleated shoes, you need to bring an extra pair of footwear for backup.  Those spikes may work well in the soccer field, the track or the golf course, but it’s going to be disastrous (at the least, annoying) once you step off the playing field.  The Cleatskins make those backup shoes optional. Instead of changing shoes after a game, you simply slip these footwear accessories over your cleated soles.  No more carrying backup shoes and no [...]
