I bought these when they first came out, and they were amazing for the first few months. I played on a club ball team, so we had practice 3-4 times a week, and tournament about every month, so I used them a lot. I am also a catcher, and would not recommend them if you are a catcher. When you have the Velcro on while you are behind the plate, it puts to much weight/pressure on the Velcro, and its wears out really quickly and then doesn't stick. So for any other position that catcher these are amazing cleats, but if you are a catcher I would not recommend them, but if you do get them, don't use the Velcro when you are behind the plate, only when hitting/running.
