Innovation Alert – Cleatskins

With Spring sports starting up around the country, the cleats are coming back out. Whether for baseball, soccer, lacrosse, or cricket; the list of outdoor sports requiring cleats is a long one. With this seasonal footwear choice comes a unique problem though, how to make it around when not on the grass, but with cleats till on the foot?

Enter – Cleatskins. A piece of equipment fashioned to attach to the bottom of cleats (13 sports currently) specifically for off-field moments.

Available in multiple colors and sizes, they have already been adopted by professional athletes such as Jeff Garcia, Mark Schwarzer and the Auburn University softball team. Keep an eye out, these are an innovation sure to be popping up across the country this Spring in full force.
