Soccer Cleats I bought my daughter a pair of Puma soccer cleats. Kings. She has only worn them for 3 months and they are completely falling apart. Her last pair lasted her a year. She has been playing soccer for 10 years and she has never had a pair of cleats that only lasted her 3 months. She is very upset, because Puma is her favorite brand.

Two quick thoughts.

1) Puma, while a cool brand, aren't generally thought of as high end cleats.

2) In any brand, they will have various levels of quality. Something under $100 is generally going to have less quality in construction and be less able to withstand serious play.

It could be that your daughter is now playing at a very serious level, so a pair of $40 cleats that would withstand a whole season or two might now break down faster because she is making much harder cuts etc. Also, though the Kings some in several varieties, they are generally a great cleat, so I'm supposing you paid at least $80 for them and they are either leather or Kangaroo Leather. I know for certain that if you don't pay attention to wetness, you can easily kill a pair of leather shoes. Either by drying them too fast or by letting them stay wet too long, you could break down the material.

BUT regardless, take them back and see about getting a discount or refund. They should last longer than that. Good luck.

: What equipment do I need to buy so that my son is prepared for his first day of soccer?

One of the reasons soccer is a great sport is because it requires so little gear. Like in any sport, you should make sure your son is equipped with a large water bottle and that he wears shorts and a t-shirt that are breathable. If he is just starting out, he doesn't need to have cleats yet. It's better for beginners to learn to play without cleats so that they don't injure themselves or their teammates. The most important piece of equipment is shin guards that are fitted to the length of your sons lower leg.

What is the difference between rugby boots and soccer cleats?

My rugby boots are heavier and sturdier than my soccer cleats. Depending on the position you play, some of the boots go higher up the ankle instead of soccer cleats that cut off just below it. Also, rugby boots have around 10 studs whereas soccer cleats have about 16, give or take.

My MFN-201 cleat driver will not drive the cleats deep enough into the 3/4 inch prefinished bruce flooring. It postitions the cleats fine. It is on the Rachet setting.

There is a piece of rubber under the head called the bumper. This rubber piece is what stops the driver from forward travel. If you remove this rubber or replace with thinner, you can drive nail deeper. Most likely your driver blade may be worn or where driver blade attaches to shaft may be worn. Tool would need to be disassembled to check. Parts are not expensive and available at Good luck

I've stated playing baseball a few months ago. Normal running shoes are not comfortable. Looking for a good shoe - any thoughts guys?

If you are going to play baseball, regular shoes won't suffice. Baseball cleats are specially made for baseball and are required on most levels of league play. Here are some instuctions on how to choose the best shoe for you:
1.Find out what type of cleats are allowed in your baseball leagues.
2.Locate a store in your area that specializes in baseball apparel. Use your phone book and look under the baseball listing to find specialty baseball stores.
3.Try on the baseball cleats at a local store. Baseball cleats are different than other types of shoes, and the sizes might not correspond exactly to your regular shoe size.
4.Shop around for prices once you have found the right pair of cleats for you. You can look in different shoe stores to locate the lowest price, as well as look at online baseball apparel shops.
