The Best Ultimate Frisbee Cleats

What cleats should you use for ultimate frisbee?

What Kind of Cleats Do You Need?
Having the right cleats is very important in ultimate frusbee because it allows you to make sharp cuts without slipping or falling over. It's important to note that you can't use metal spikes in competitive play. Football, soccer, and lacrosse have the most similar style of running to ultimate, so you want to look at those types of cleats first. The links below are affiliate links and cleats that I recommend.

What to Look For
1. Weight: You want cleats to be lightweight because the sport requires a lot of running (soccer and receiver football cleats are normally the lightest).
2. Stud Pattern: You want square/rectangle studs over round studs if possible when playing on grass. Square studs will normally dig into the ground better and provide better traction.  For best traction use a cleat that has a toe stud.  Soccer cleats do not use a toe stud, so keep this in mind when weighing the benefits. 
3. Durability: You want a pair of cleats that will last at least a couple of years. Ultimate uses very aggressive cutting and if you don't buy a pair of cleats that can handle this they will tear quickly. The biggest problem area is the area to the side of the foot. You want to check to see if the shoe is reinforced properly on that side of the shoe.
4. Ventilation: You want a shoe that has good ventilation. You are going to be running a lot and bad ventilation can cause blisters and other moisture problems.
5. Materials: The materials should be comfortable. Again you are going to be running a lot, so the shoe should be comfortable to wear.
6. Support/Lateral Containment: You don't want your foot sliding all over the place inside the shoe. You want a cleat that fits well.
