Do you have a certain type of Cleat that you buy for your shoes or do you just buy the one you like the look of when the time comes to replece them??

I usually use the widows that come with the footjoys I usually buy. And then when those shoe becomes my "winter" shoes I replace them with metal spikes. By the time the metal ones need replacing I bin the shoes.

Please can we come up with a more down to earth name for these things. IMO "Cleats" is a really outdated and elitist way of describing something that you fit on a shoe. Could we use "studs" instead?

I know it's a bit stupid, but I think the word "cleats" harps back to a long lost era and we should update to a more appropriate word.

Why? cleat works why change it

I always put metals spikes in my winter shoes, then I save the unused plastic soft spikes for spares in my summer shoes. I've just got a new pair of Icons and they came with the Champ Zarma's in them. Nice!!

I use champ spikes, stinger pro for winter, and I'm trying the Zarma for this summer, if we get one!

I'm with Crazyface, 'cleat' is a rubbish word that should be sent to Room 101 never to return.

I find Softspikes Black Widow are fine. The plain black ones.

I have usually used Champ Stingers in the Summer and Pro Stingers in the winter.

At the moment I am using Softspikes Pulsar as I got a good deal on them.

The new Champ Zarma may be the next choice, or the perhaps the Softspikes Black Widow Tour.

When my soft spikes wear out I shall replace them with Champ Stingers for summer and winter.

I thought cleat was a recent Americanism? As for being elitist, think you need to take your medicine there CF

As for what is a good spike, anything that actually has a spike is a good place to start, anything containing the word "soft" or is based upon the idea of a "soft spike" is rubbish, especially the crap that adidas peddle in all of their shoes, and which you can't change due to their proprietory 'PINS' system.
