Back to School Fall Sports Footwear

Fall Sports Footwear Shopping Guide

While the summer sports schedule is in full swing, it’s never too early to start looking forward to fall sports, especially for those competing at the high school and collegiate levels. The three biggest sports of the fall season are football, soccer and cross country. Here’s what you’ll need to set yourself apart from the rest.


Another season means another year on the growth chart, which usually means another new pair of shoes. On the football and soccer fields, a new pair of cleats are a must have if your feet are starting to cramp up in your old pair. Check out the Nike Men’s Super Speed D Low Football Cleats at Foot Locker for only $19.99 if you’re looking for an affordable pair from a big name. has the Predator PowerServe cleats by Adidas for $199.99. While expensive, the soft kangaroo leather makes them a comfortable fit.

Of course when it comes to runners, footwear is always at the top of their shopping list. The world’s largest running store, Road Runner Sports, is there to help. Offering the widest selection of running footwear around, Road Runner Sports gets it right. The Men’s Puma Complete Trailfox II is a web exclusive item for less than $100.00.

Finally, it’s extremely important to have something to carry your shoes around in. Rather than walk around in your gameday cleats or your racing shoes, carry them in a lightweight bag or backpack, and lace them up as you step onto the practice field or as you step out onto the playing field. By not accumulating extra dirt, dust and wear on your shoes, you’ll keep them cleaner and make them last longer.
