High Top Cleats
I bought some high top cleats from Boombah because they were a closeout and I have a hard time finding shoes in my size. There are no returns for this shoe.

Why is it no one wears high tops in tournaments? Are they worse for running?

good discussion string from few years ago that will help in decision making on whether to buy molded cleats vs turf shoes along with wide width available cleats

Message Board Home - Under the Change Topic - scroll down to Product Review, press Go then on second page, there is a discussion on Cleats May 30,2017 that is very informative - much discussion on how molded cleats are harder on Senior players feet, especially on hard infields, also the need to get Wide sizes, EE, EEE, or Extra Wide - Alan Tanner has good info on New Balance on one comment. I only use New Balance and have seen quite a few players switch over the last couple of years also, their shoes are wide, much more so than Nike or Boombah. and their durability is much better than Boombah, Hope this helps

Stattad, I have 2 pair of spikes from Boombah and, like you, mine run smaller in width and length than normal spikes. Six weeks ago I purchased a pair of "KevenAnna Premium Professional 4-way Wooden Shoe Stretchers". They cost me $26 but were one of the best purchases I've made in years. They provide options to make your shoes wider overall, wider in certain spots, or longer (you don't have to apply the length option if you don't need it). I have 4 pair of spikes and I've used in on all four with good results. You have to make sure you put them very tight into your shoe and leave them there for 3 days. My feet are no longer in pain after a tournament or league games. Thought I'd share this since I had been in the same position as you.

My shoes fit fine because I ordered a size larger. They felt fine today in their first outing in a doubleheader.
