6 History of the Cleat The first pair of cleats belonged to King Henry VIII. Players would nail bits of leather to their shoes to give them a better grip. In the 1990s a new shoe concept called blades was introduced. What that was, was plastic on the sole of the shoes, which was intended to offer more stable traction. Again in the 1990s former Liverpool and Middleborough player Craig Johnston revolutionized the cleat. There was rubber fins around the laces and side which allowed the player to grip the ball better and have a better swerve pass.
