HINT: in what sport do players use cleats?

ANSWER: soccer.

 Even though it may not seem so, ballerinas and soccer players are very similar.  Both dancing and playing soccer require a lot of strength.  You also need special shoes for both sports.  Soccer players wear a special type of shoe called a cleat.  Cleats are like tennis shoes with little spikes under them.  Ballet dancers wear a special type of shoe called a pointe shoe.  Pointe shoes help dancers balance on their toes.

Have you ever worn cleats or pointe shoes?
