(Often called Ultimate Frisbee Cleats*)
This site is run by experienced Ultimate players. A few of our favorite Ultimate Cleats
Below, we have listed our favorite molded cleats we have tested this summer as well as our favorites from winters past. If you need cleats for the upcoming season, click on the links below for the best prices available through Amazon.
Diadora Cleats - After Adidas, Diadora are our 2nd favorite cleats. Diadora's reputation in the Ultimate community has been increasing in recent years due to their emphasis on durability and their dedication to design quality.
Reebok and Nike Cleats
We have made many selections for you based on our experience and lots of players we have spoken with. Are you playing on hard dry ground for a portion of this coming season's games? If you are, be sure to look at the Adidas Turf Hog cleats or the Adipure on the Men's Cleats page. Those are two of our favorite TURF CLEATS when playing on hard ground. If you like soccer style molded cleats, check out the TuniT. I know $100+ is hard to spend on a pair of cleats but sometimes you just have to go for a cleat that's really going to improve your game.
Good luck this year. PLAY ON!!!
Further down the page are some 'how-to' tips on buying Ultimate Cleats.
I've played Ultimate (and other sports) for 9 years and I've gone through lots of cleats. Are you looking for Cleats to play Ultimate in? You've come to the right place. But, if you are looking for Football, Baseball, Softball, or Soccer cleats, you've come to the right place too.
Below, we have great tips on what to look for when buying a pair of Ultimate Cleats.
Ultimate Frisbee Field Conditions
When it comes to Ultimate Cleats, my main consideration, before I choose my shoe is the condition of the playing surface. Two primary field conditions are wet / muddy or dry / hard. Condition of the field is paramount to the health of your feet, ankles, and knees. As Ultimate players, we are sometimes asked to play in less than ideal conditions and your personal cleat selection will make a difference in your performance.
If the surface of the Ultimate playing field is hard and dry, I will choose a turf cleat with a short knobby rubber low profile sole. I've found turf cleats are my all around favorite playing shoe. I currently wear Adidas Mundial turf cleats exclusively. For a number of years, I wore Reebok turf shoes but I have not been able to find them in my size lately. Below are a few recommendations of turf cleats that I have been happy with. Click the links to purchase from Amazon.com.
I choose molded cleats when I am playing on a wet or muddy field. Molded cleats grip well when you need extra traction. Molded cleats are good, general, all around cleats for competitive Ultimate play. My current favorite molded cleats are a pair of Reebok with 12 nubs. Also look for Gaia, Nike, Puma, Pony, and Mitra.
