The Best Soccer Cleats For Kids

The 6 Most Popular Soccer Cleat Styles for Kids ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Please keep in mind that I only review shoe styles that I have fitted before, since that is the only way for me to tell how well-made the shoes are, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit.

I have been working for a specialized children’s shoe store for over 10 years now, and I know everything that relates to children’s shoes and the way they FIT. This is a specialized 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 shoe brands and the best shoe styles among those brands from having fitted them before.

When children are playing soccer, they are stressing out their feet and legs at a whole different level, putting more pressure in parts of their bodies where they are not used to. Your child will be making movements such as sudden stops and quick direction changes that require cleats with excellent traction. The cleats must also be  supportive, flexible and lightweight.

Most parents don’t know that soccer cleats for children with wide or extra wide feet exist, so they end up fitting their children in cleats that are too narrow. Playing soccer in a cleat that is too narrow will lead to several foot issues such as blisters, calluses, corns, ingrown toenails as well as foot and leg pain.

Below you will find a review of the best 6 soccer cleat styles for children.

The outsoles are reinforced with rivets and the upper synthetic part offers durability and comfort.

6 Comments on The Best Soccer Cleats For Kids

  1. Hello,

    Thank you so much for creating this website and sharing your expertise! I was able to find soccer cleats and shoe inserts via your recommendations that no longer hurt my daughter’s feet. Since now she has minimal to no pain, she is now interested in taking up other sports and has taken a liking to golf. I was wondering if you would have any suggestions on golf shoes for kids?

    • Hello Maria,

      I am glad to know that your daughter is not having any foot or leg pain anymore. I am not very familiar with golf shoes since I have not fitted them before, but she won’t be putting the same amount of stress on her feet and legs when playing golf as she does when she plays soccer, since golf it’s not a high impact sport.Are your daughter’s feet a particular foot shape that makes it hard to find shoes?

  2. Hi juan
