Storelli knows that the stock insoles found in every new pair of soccer cleats are not optimized for traction, causing your feet to slide and slowing your reaction time when it makes all the difference. That’s why they created their new SpeedGrip insole. By adding grip to your cleats, they help you gain traction and focus on your game. We put them to the test to find out how they perform and if they’re worth the $40 price tag.
We’re all used to the cheap, thin foam insoles that come inside every new pair of soccer cleats (even the $300 ones). They lack arch support, cushioning, and comfort, something soccer players shouldn’t have to play without. Because of this, Currex have created the CleatPro insole which features an improved forefoot pad for comfort and an anti-slip top surface. Simply put, they’re not your average cheap insoles; they’re way better. We put them to the test to see how they feel and perform underfoot.
It’s common for all athletes to suffer from foot, ankle, knee, and lower back pain, which can affect one’s health, mood, and energy level.

We put them to the test to see how they perform underfoot.
