This is one factor that should be at the fore front of your decision. When buying a pair of baseball shoes, you should be aware of the three types of cleats. These are the metal cleats, turf shoes and molded plastic cleats.
Metal cleats have the advantage of providing the best traction. Whether it is on hard dirt or grassy fields, they allow for maximum acceleration and turning power. For the batter, he can dig into the ground for extra support preventing him from slipping or sliding when making a swing. The down side is that they are known to cause injuries during sharp turns due to their high gripping capabilities and they do wear down when used on surfaces that are not grass or dirt.
Turf shoes, on the other hand, are best for training. They provide maximum grip while taking away the possibility of injuries. When practicing on artificial surfaces they will keep you from falling so you need not worry about slipping and. They are also light weight.
Molded plastic cleats are not as expensive as metal cleats. Made of rubber that is fixed permanently to the sole of the shoe, they offer great traction on grassy or dirt fields. They are also quite effective on other types of fields and do not wear down quite as much as the metal cleats. They are a preferred choice for most players due to the fact that they do not grip the ground as much as the metal cleats. Their slide ability means that they cause less injury during sharp turns.
