Are you having a hard time keeping your kids’ soccer cleats tied while they are playing on the field? Have you been looking for a pair of soccer cleats with Velcro closure for your child?
Playing soccer in untied shoes can compromise your child’s stability and this can lead to several foot issues and injuries.
There is one common question parents ask me when it comes to soccer shoes: Do soccer cleats with Velcro closure actually exist?
There is actually only one style available, and I will show you that style shortly. Parents are always excited to learn this since it allows their children to have more control over their cleats, and they don’t have to worry about the shoelaces becoming untie.
Shoes play a key role in keeping your kids’ feet healthy and I am always emphasizing to parents the importance of providing their children with the correct shoe style and the correct shoe size.
I have been fitting children’s shoes and orthotics for the last 10 years working for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. I am familiar with the best children’s shoe brands and the best styles among those brands.
For the last 3 years I have been helping families find the perfect pair of shoes for their children online.
When children are playing soccer, they are stressing out their feet and legs at a whole different level, since they are making movements that they are not used to make. There is a lot of sudden stops and quick direction change movements, which makes it really important for your kids’ soccer cleats to securely tighten.
Keep in mind that shoes with shoelaces will always provide more support and more stability than Velcro shoes, but if the shoes are becoming united all the time then it defeats the whole purpose of wearing a shoe with shoelaces.
With this particular shoe style there will be no more stopping at soccer games to tie shoes or worrying that your child will step on them and fall.
Some parents have told me how not having to re-tie their kids’ soccer shoes multiple times during practice or games is priceless. They also noticed how their kids were kicking the ball with noticeably more power with this shoe style compared to their previous ones with shoelaces.
I will show you which is the best soccer cleat for kids that comes with Velcro closure, but first I want to tell you what features this shoe style will provide and teach you how to measure your kids’ foot size from home.
Notice in the picture below how those kids are running after the ball with untied shoelaces.
Velcro Soccer Shoe Style – The 3 Most Important Features!
Let’s take a look at what features this soccer cleat will provide for your child:
- This shoe style comes with a firm heel counter to protect and support your kids’ ankles.
- This shoe styles comes with good traction to prevent your child from slipping and falling down.
- The shoes are lightweight and flexible to prevent your kids’ feet and legs from easily getting tired.
I am always emphasizing to parents that it does’t matter how many features a particular shoe style provides, if the shoes are not fitted properly which involves getting the correct shoe length and the correct shoe width, your child won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer.
I always recommend parents to take their children to their local children’s shoe store that they trust, the issue is that most stores have been closing down and parents need to end up buying their kids’ shoes online. There is nothing wrong with this, but you must know your child’s exact foot size in order to know what size to order.
I created a map that showcases the best fitting children’s shoe stores by state, so I suggest you start by taking a look at that map:
If after looking at that map you still can’t seem to identify a shoe store in your area, then proceed to taking a look at an article along with a video I created that describes the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your child’s foot size from home:
IMPORTANT TIP: Always make your children try the soccer cleats that they will be playing on with the same exact type of socks that they will wear on the field.
