When looking for the cleats keep these things in mind. Make sure that the cleats you are choosing are a good fit, not even a little bit loose or tight. If it is loose it can impact the performance and if it is tight then it can give cramps to the kid’s feet. Also, make sure that they are durable as well. Kids apart from playing also do a lot of running. The upper portion should be tight to give a proper fit, but not too tight to squeeze your toes. The cleats should be strong to endure all that. Also, small kids look after legend players as their role model and try to adapt their style, also demanding the same kind of cleats worn by these players. Kids just go crazy for them.

For kids safety, it is better to provide them with rubber or plastic cleats. Metal-tipped cleats may weigh a little more and can be harmful if came in contact with other player’s skin. It can leave rashes or bruises to children’s delicate skin.
The material is also a matter of when comes to soccer cleats. Leather and synthetic materials could be a little heavy if you are looking for ultra lightweight shoes.
