Before using the Pocket Cleats™ for the first time, it is important to follow the instructions below:
1. Adjust the webbing so that the main buckle is located at the highest point of your sneaker. The base of the cleats should be located at the narrowest part of the hourglass shape of your sneakers sole.
2. Adjust the side brackets so that they are located approximately ¼ inch above the bottom of your sneaker on both sides (the brackets will prevent excessive side to side movement).
3. After buckling both back and front straps, cut excessive webbing as desired and burn ends with a match to prevent fraying. Note: prior to cutting webbing, please consider placement on different shoes you may own. Straps must be tight to prevent excessive movement.
