Metal Cleats Shoes designed specifically for baseball. Metal cleats feature molded soles with several small metal spikes, designed to provide maximum traction on baseball fields, attached to the bottom of the shoe. They are usually made of leather and fit much like a standard pair of sneakers. Metal cleats are not permitted in Little League and instructional levels because of the potential for injury, most often when a player with metal cleats slides into a base and the spikes are exposed (see spiking).
Molded Cleats Shoes designed specifically for baseball. Molded cleats feature molded soles with several small plastic cleats, designed to provide traction on baseball fields, attached to the bottom of the shoe.
