Turf vs Cleatsw
Need new softball cleats. I have decided on New Balance because of size (14) and width (E).
I have always worn cleats/spikes but I hear of alot of people wearing turf shoes. Is it just a personal preference or are there advantages?
I play 1st base and at 6'5" 300lbs I am not flying around the bases.
I look forward to your replies

Mike,
Just purchased a pair of Boombahs. Was told that they were very comfortable and they are. Also bought a backpack. You can get them online. The shoes were about $45. Got both for $107.00, included shipping.

I still prefer the feel of the cleats when I play outfield but when pitching I will use Turf shoes at times.

3N2's (turf) are very comfortable. With cleats--feet hurt all weekend. Now, with 3N2's I have no sore feet.

About a year ago there were great thing mentioned about New Balance's turfs. I don't know of anyone that has acutally worn them, sorry.
I bought some Boombah's last fall (2007 model) and can't believe that they are now showing much wear on the bottoms. I figure they might last another two months.
Tanels are great shoes and are probably what you need.
Btw, I also can get you 20 percent off Tanel products when you order from www.tanel360.com. ;) You can email me for info at b_fairchild@hotmail.com.

Nice offer 6, thanks. Also, this will be my 2nd season using the Rev-D shoe. This is a combination cleat/turf. It is sturdy, yet comfortable; and, available in mids, & different colors.

#6 Kenny can't you get Tanel to make them in Burnt Orange and i will quit wearing Boombah. Boombah makes a great shoe but playing league ball and tournaments they only last one season. I have a pair of New Balance the best thing about them is they come in 4eeee width. I do not like the flap on them.

jimmy7 the mizuno blast is the same type 9-spike but with turf spikes also on the bottom(combo),and are real light(IMO they are the lightest on the market).you can get them in mid or lo now.
prol i have with the tanels is that the bottoms clog up if u are in wet conditions,my blasts don't.

Like most Senior players, I have tried a lot of different shoes. My favorite was the Tanel 360 until I tried the 3N2 Turf shoe. It is by far my favorite to date....I find it light weight and very comfortable...........I also think it is a good looking shoe.
