If you are like most soccer families, you have probably already shelled out a pretty penny for soccer equipment. However, there are a few simple tips and tricks you can use to get the best deal on soccer cleats when shopping.
First, set a budget. Soccer cleats can be expensive, and there are many brand names on the market that can be tempting. Second, look into it and research deals before you start shopping. Know how much each soccer cleat from each brand should cost approximately, then go from there. Finally, if you are buying online, make sure you can return or exchange the soccer cleats; just in case they don’t fit right.
Buying soccer cleats can be challenging with so many different brands on the market. That is why it’s important to shop around.
Here are a few ways to find a great deal on soccer cleats:
1. Online Soccer Discount Stores
Most people do not know that these unique specialty soccer stores exist online. If you are careful and know what you are looking for, you can get a great deal. However, sometimes, these discount stores are not always the best deal out there; you just have to do your research first.
2. Garage Sales
For a family on a budget, garage sales can be the perfect place to find sports equipment. Just keep a list of your families’ sizes, both shoe and clothing. You never know what you’ll find. From barely used soccer cleats, to shin guards, garage sales are a great way to save money and have fun haggling for a great deal!
3. Thrift Stores
Another great place to find sports gear for cheap! However, you may have to do some searching to find the limited selection of soccer cleats. If you do happen to find your size, it will most likely be a steal of a deal.
4. Online stores
Do not count out online shopping, this option has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years. From the convenience of shopping at home, to the wide selection, online stores like Amazon and Ebay can also have fantastic deals! This option is my personal favorite; not just because it is simple and easy, but they always have my size, style, color, and preferred brand of soccer cleat.
For those of you who must shop in giant retail stores or local soccer shops, see if you can get a few coupons. Either through the mail or online, coupons can be a great way to save some money. Furthermore, you can even find coupons for online shops or rebates.
Remember that everything sold in stores has a season, a time when that item is sold for full price. The off-season is a great time to shop for soccer cleats, as they will probably be lower in price. Just do not shop before soccer season starts, as that is when cleats will be the most expensive.
In the end, finding the right soccer cleat is more than just getting a great deal. Without the proper fitting soccer cleat, you will not be able to play your best game. So make sure not to sacrifice quality for affordability. This Youtube video below contains tips on how to find the right cleat size that is still in your budget range.
Remember that there are lots of great deals out there for the savvy shopper!
