Really wide and/or comfortable cleats
1 of the players in my indoor league was complaining that he no
longer could find 4EE cleats. This appears correct, but I found
a company that will put metal or plastic cleats on any shoe you
provide them so you can for example buy a 4EE running or basketball shoe and they will convert it to a softball shoe.
The company is and I was wondering if anyone has ever used them and were you happy with the results?
From the website it appears they can customize the shoe for those with special needs.
Thank you.

I have noticed that fewer and fewer are wearing cleats anymore. I think you will find more are wearing a training/turf shoe. Boombah and Mizuno comes to mind, of course there are other brands. They are more comfortable when wearing for long periods of time like in tournaments. Also because they have a larger surface area they don't wear down like cleats do.

Thank you ?. I checked with the company and they can put Boombah turf bottoms onto any shoe. So if you like a turf bottom but have a super wide foot,they can put the Boombah bottom onto the wide shoe of your choice. Both problems solved.
I have no interest in the co.

I have a 4E width foot and have been wearing Boombah Turf Shoes now for eight years. Absolutely the mot comfortable show I ever wore. The new rage shoes, both turf and trail all shoud be odrdered a 1/2 size up for maximum comfort. Just giving you my personal experience.
You should try a pair before having custom shoes made up. They are priced really reasonable and come in a variety of colors and styles. Check 'em out.

Customcleats is legit.I have seen their work and a friend of mine uses them alot.They can do any shoe. Expensive though to buy a pair of shoes and then pay another 30 forty bucks to have them modified.

Cleats here refer to non-metal cleats (plastic, rubber, composite,etc.) for softball.
