Spring Sports Cleat and Turf Shoe Recommendations
Spring sports are right around the corner, so here are some of my recommendations for cleats and turf shoes for women's softball and lacrosse. I was fortunate enough to have Alicia Bergey, Footwear Manager at Longstreth Sporting Goods in Spring City, PA to help me with this shoe list.
Remember in the early days of your spring season, the turf and grass fields can be solid like a rock, so injury can occur just because most cleats don't absorb shock. This increased shock may go straight into your body and end up as shin splints, stress fractures or knee problems. A helpful shoe tip for this time of the year will be to train and practice in a turf shoe.
