I got lucky with the sizing, it was perfect fit and comfortable at first try. No blisters or anything. But need some good cotton socks too so it wont go slippery in the inside. – Ro

The Ultimate Guide to Picking the Right Cleats for Ultimate Frisbee

So you just started playing Ultimate Frisbee in Indonesia, or you’re a veteran player who’s found yourself in Indonesia and ready to get back into the game. Either way, you want to make sure that you’re buying the right cleats for Ultimate Frisbee in Indonesia. Scratch that. Any cleats are better than no cleats!

Firstly, you can’t really go wrong with cleats compared to no cleats. If they fit ok, you’ll find the extra purchase on the grass will get you where you need to be a few fraction of a second before you would without them. And I promise you, that these extra semi-seconds will boost your game level exponentially. Even if it’s one more catch per pick up game, or shrugging off your defender in two quick steps rather than three, your confidence will rise and you’ll fall in love just a little bit more with Ultimate.

Do you need cleats for ultimate frisbee?

Cleats provide numerous benefits that make them essential for ultimate frisbee players. They offer superior traction which can help prevent slipping and sliding when running on grass or turf. They also provide extra cushioning and support to reduce the impact of running and jumping on hard surfaces. Furthermore, they give you an extra layer of protection in case you land awkwardly and twist an ankle or knee. That being said, having the right cleats is key; not all cleats are created equal!

How Will Cleats Improve Your Game?

Good quality cleats will allow you to move more quickly across the field without sacrificing comfort or stability. This means that your reaction time will be faster, allowing you to anticipate passes and intercept throws with greater accuracy. On top of that, they can provide extra support while turning and pivoting in tight spaces so that your movements look clean and effortless. Finally, having a pair of lightweight cleats can help improve your endurance over long periods of playtime—no one wants their feet dragging near the end of a game!

When it comes to choosing the best cleats for ultimate frisbee, there’s no one size fits all. Ultimately (pun intended) it comes down to personal preference and what works best for your playing style and foot type. However, if you take into consideration all the benefits that good quality cleats provide—traction, cushioning, support, protection—you’ll be better equipped to make an informed decision when it comes time to buy a new pair!
