If you’ve got a pair of soccer boots that are a bit too large, shrinking them a bit is a great way to achieve a good fit. Most players want cleats that fit snug on their foot, with little to no movement in the cleat. So, in essence, you want your cleats to be tight, but not constrictive or painful.
Those thick, comfy socks that keep your feet warm may also be the solution for boots that feel too roomy. They fill in the extra space at the toe, heel or sides of your foot. Tall, thick socks can take up the space between a wide boot shaft and thin calves. Pull on a decorative over-the-knee version if you're wearing tall boots.

The same goes for the sides—if there’s a clear gap, they’re too wide. When seated, press down at the front of the shoes to feel for your big toe. There should only be a small space between the toe and shoe, about the width of a thumb. If you sense that you can compress the top down to the footbed, it isn’t your size.
