The term Cleatskin rolls off the tongue in a strangely unsettling way, but we won’t knock a company for being blunt about their product’s purpose. Made from a unique formulation of compression molded rubber called Skintek, they’re essentially galosh’s for your spikes — dare we use such a foppish term in the same sentence as cleat. Versions are available for nearly every sport including soccer, baseball, football, rugby, softball, field hockey, lacrosse, cycling, and track and field, so no matter what you play, you too can prevent the unwarranted stabbing of non-turf surfaces. Use them on a regular basis, and you’ll always have traction when you need it, or at least be ready for a good ole’ second base mauling.
