Cleats Through The Years
• Soccer cleats have been around since the 1900’s. They
have changed since than by the cleats used to be made
out of rubber or plastic and the spikes were too. But
know cleats are made of of metal or plastic and some
shoes have led inside of the bottom of the shoes so that
the cleat is more heavy and will have a stronger kick.
The shoes have become very advance and many
different kinda are created.
• Cleats have been improving by polymers because they
have been formed to fit right on the foot. Cleats have
also improved by the spikes on the bottom have been
shaped so that they can not stick into the surface of the
ground, but only go in the ground a little so that when the
ball is kicked, you can kick it high and get under it.
Goals Through The Years

crossbar used to be wooden, but now they are plastic.
