Where to buy cleats locally

I usually purchase cheap soccer cleats from Gart Sports/Sports Authority.  However, lately their stock really sucks.  What are other stores in the area to buy cleats?

I went there once.  I didn't buy anything, but they had good selection and service.  I wear Gaia cleats (www.gaia-ultimate.com).

Big 5 (on the Ave, if it's still there, other locations also) generally has decent soccer and football cleats.  In that department, Nike has switched back to the pre-2003 model for the Land Sharks, and they go for $25-35.

The outlet mall in Tulalip has Nike, Adidas, and Puma stores all selling cleats at a discount.

G.I. Joes at Northgate had a great selection of cleats at prices better than most online sources when I was out there for Potlatch. Stock at that time included Nike's Speed TD's (the best shoe out there, IMO) and New Balance cleats in widths.

One more thing...  Like Bunny I used to wear Gaia's.  But I found that they only lasted 6-8 months.  A cheap pair of Adidas would last twice as long for half the price, and work pretty well.  These have synthetic uppers.  Do the more expensive Adidas cleats with full leather uppers last longer?  Or are they only better for ball reaction when kicking a ball, or something else entirely?

I got a pair of cleats at Payless for $15 that have lasted over a year now... and that includes playing two teams spring and summer.

Re: Where to buy cleats locally

The outlet malls in North Bend can have some great finds .  There are outlets for Nike and Addidas... maybe another I am forgetting.
Last time I was there I bought 5 pairs of Nike fottball cleats (speed TD) and have been quite happy.
and it is not that far when you work in Snoqualmie.

If you've got 14 or 15 size feet, Speed TD vapors are on sale for $40 at eastbay.com... down from regular price of $120. A good christmas buy for any big footed athlete (or youth player, there are some big'uns out there) you know.

Re: Where to buy cleats locally

Sports Specialties 2319 2nd Ave in Belltown (between Bell and Battery) has huge selection of soccer cleats/turf shoes. This place has a much bigger selection than the others mentioned.

I just bought a pair yesterday ($54 for leather pumas). They have just about every brand and multiple styles--I would guess about 30 different models including multiple turf models. They are open 10 - 6 Tue - Sat.

They have been there 30 years and the owner is super friendly and knowledgable and sometimes tries to give you free stuff (he offered me free shin guards).

That's cuz your shins look all spindly (though damn sexy).  He wasn't thinking you played soccer, just that you should wear them around all day, just in case.

I go to a soccor place on Lake City Way next to Curves and Value Village in Lake City on the E. side of the street.  Locally owned, non-chain store.  The owner is often there and they have a great selection.

Re: Where to buy cleats locally

Athletic Supply Company has wide receiver cleats including the popular Speed TD.  It's a little late in the season now buyt they might have some leftovers.  You'll want to check their stock in May.

GI Joes carries wide receiver cleats also.  I have the New Balance cleat and I am quite happy with it.  It works better for a wide foot.  Nike and Adidas were too narrow for me.

Later,
Jason
