After a few seasons of fastpitch softball (especially at the travel ball level) you realize you or your player needs a QUALITY pair of softball cleats. When they were young they could get by with whatever cleats you could find on clearance at the local sporting goods store (and don’t act like you didn’t do that!). But once they get serious about the game and are in constant motion and standing on their feet for 3-5 games in a day, then you realize you really need to look into getting the best quality cleat that you can get for you or your player.
Here at Softball Galaxy we hope to make your job a little easier by finding you the right pair of cleats without the hassle of searching through pages of cleats online. Hopefully one of these great pairs will work for what you need!
