Hi, my name’s Otis St. Clair, and I’m here
today to talk to you about how to choose football cleats. Now with a number of different shoe
companies out there like Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Under Armour, you’ve got a lot of different
choices on how to pick your football. Now also one thing that’s going to go into your
choice is the type of turf you’re playing on. You have a synthetic turf, and then you
have natural turf. And depending on–and it also depends on the type of weather conditions
that you have. This type of turf right here, obviously is a Nike, and it’s called a molded
cleat, which you can use on synthetic turf or on natural turf. And it’s better used in
dry conditions. You know, if it’s muddy out you probably don’t want to wear this cleat
because the grip or your traction’s not that good. The second type of cleat that we’ll
be looking at is what’s called a screw in cleat. And these can be changed once they
wear too low, like these are. But you can change the length and size of the cleat, or
size the cleat so that you get better traction in bad conditions. So those are basically
the two types of cleats that you have to choose from. A screw in cleat, or a molded cleat.
I prefer Nike, some prefer Adidas, some prefer Reebok. That’s just Otis. That’s who I am,
and that’s how you choose your football cleats.
