"Saves any damage to cleats and they are a snug fit. Does not affect walking. Expensive but cheaper than damaging cleats. Not so much a coffee shop cleat as a really useful piece of kit if you puncture and have to walk, once happened to me and I ruined a pair of cleats"
Pros: Durable, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive
