The Best Way to Make Baseball Cleats Last 1+ Seasons

Ah, America’s Game! Since 1839, in Cooperstown, New York, when Abner Doubleday invented it, baseball has had a grip on America’s heart. It is the combination of valiant solo efforts (“Going, going… gone! It’s a home run!!!”) to intricate team work (“Folks, I’ve never seen such a beautifully executed triple play!”) that excites everyone from the 4 year-old T-Baller to the seasoned MLB player. It is so woven into the fabric of American culture that even those who claim to not be sports fanatics still know an awful lot about the game

Softball followed in 1887, invented in Chicago by Yale and Harvard alumni. It, too, caught on and was a major hit, although the game wasn’t given the name softball until decades later.

Baseball and softball, like most sports, are hard on the athlete’s equipment and clothing, including the cleats. Here at Tuff Toe, we’re proud to protect the toes of every pair of cleats worn by America’s Major League Baseball players. In addition to Major League Baseball, Tuff Toe is used by many collegiate teams across the country, as well as the U.S. Olympic Baseball and Softball teams. We think that’s a pretty good testimonial to the quality and toughness of Tuff Toe!

What is Tuff Toe?

Tuff Toe is a proprietary Tuff Toe formula is a polyurethane based adhesive coating that provides abrasion protection and a shield against water and many dangerous chemicals. Our patented Tuff Toe protection can either be factory applied or applied at home, with our well-designed, easy to follow home application kit. Tuff Toe protective coating comes in black, blue and red.

What do people have to say about Tuff Toe?

  • Jim Gantt, the head baseball coach for Catawba College in Salisbury, North Carolina his team’s “cleats wear out before the Tuff Toe product does.”
  • Justin Verlander, starting pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, tells us that he “never pitch(es) without the protection of Tuff Toe.”
  • Ryan H., a dad (the most important job around) says “This product is great. It saved the toe of my daughter’s cleats throughout the entire year, and she is extremely hard on cleats!”

So, coaches, players and dads agree that Tuff Toe is durable and rugged. It really works and it will save you money. Probably time to give it a try!

The DIY application kit is reasonably priced, on sale now for $19.95 per kit. Each Tuff Toe Pro kit has enough material for one pair of cleats and detailed instructions. The process is pretty easy. First, using painter’s tape or masking tape, outline the area you will be protecting. Then, using the sandpaper we provide, scuff the toe of the cleat to help the material stick better. Then, using the pre-filled two-plunger syringe, you are going to apply the material to the toes of each cleat. Remove the tape and you are done!

Typically, Tuff Toe triples the life expectancy of a pair of cleats. How does $19.95 compare to the cost of two more pair of cleats?

Tuff Toe products are also terrific at protecting and extending the life of steel toed boots, snow board boots, hiking boots, skateboarding shoes, mountain biking or cycling shoes and kids shoes. If your kids’ toes are poking out of their shoes before they outgrow them, then this is the product for you!
