Okay, so the majority of people don’t worry about the bottom of their shoes touching the ground, but if you engage in a speciality sport you do.  Enter the Cleatskins.

Dubbed a “footwear accessory”, the Cleatskins fit over a wide variety of shoes and protect them from damage.  The most applicable of shoes would be cleats, be it for soccer, rugby or football.  Walking on a hard surface can damage the treads or spikes.  Slip on a pair of the Cleatskins and they’ll be insulated from the damage associated with asphalt  concrete and whatever other hard surfaces you can throw under your toes.  Another added benefit is the addition of traction.  Cleats on concrete are a bit like shoes on ice, albeit with a fair bit more grip.  The Cleatskins not only protect, but add traction, so you can walk comfortably in your cleats without worrying about slipping, and breaking your leg.

Designed for athletes of any age, Cleatskins are available for soccer, baseball, football, rugby, softball, field hockey, lacrosse, cycling, track and field and other cleated shoes in a variety of colors and sizes.  Other sport shoes, such as those used for wrestling and basketball, also benefit from Cleatskins.

The Cleatskin is made from SKINTEKtm rubber, a flexible, compressed rubber.   They come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, accommodating shoes of all types, including basketball, fishing, golf, boating – you name it they’ve got it.  They start at about $20.
