Football cleats are designed to help the athlete dig in and resist force against his/her movement forward. They have cleats that are molded mainly horizontally across the shoe to give more front driven support. Baseball cleats also have support for front driven movement, but, unlike football cleats, they also have cleats that are positioned vertically along the side to help better support side to side movements as well. Baseball cleats can either be molded plastic or metal - metal cleats are not permitted in football.
