Youth baseball cleats will be one of the key equipment purchases you will make for your youth baseball player. You will have many different types, colors, sizes, etc to choose from.

Before purchasing any a set of shoes for your athlete, be sure you know the baseball equipment rules for the league he/she is participating in. In most of the younger leagues, metal cleats are not allowed due to safety concerns. In this case, you will need to purchase rubber or plastic ones.

If your youth baseball player’s league allows metal cleats, I would definitely advise you to purchase them. Metal youth cleats give the player much more traction for quick movements and stability while in the batters box. Plastic or rubber cleats don’t “dig in” as much and leaves more room for movement.

Below, I have advertised some youth cleats that I would recommend. I have tried my best to separate them by metal or rubber/plastic so you know what to look for. Again, be sure you check your league rules before purchasing cleats.

NOTE: I only advertise for vendors that I trust. As you will notice on, Baseball Express – All The Brands You Trust and are two merchants I like to use most. They are trusted in almost every merchandise category on the web. It is safe to buy from them. If you ever have any issues, please let me know.
