Jordan 11's/Foamposites/shoes with CARBON FIBER or PLASTIC under rubber you'll need to drill a pilot hole (5/32 bit 6mm deep) before mounting. This is an ADVANCED install only recommended if you know what you're doing.
ANY AIR or gel bladders have the potential of puncturing but we have found this doesn't matter on grass and dirt.
Know what you're screwing into. You are in charge of the shoes you select and some work much better than others. If in doubt look up your shoe model/deconstruct on google and you can usually find what the guts of the shoe look like or ask us for help - email@example.com
Sole rot warning - we love seeing older shoes get a new life on the golf course but if midsole is crusty/rotted Yardkicks spikes can accelerate sole delamination.
PRO TIP: If you have access to a drill this makes it very easy, your Kit includes a 5mm hex insert drill bit.
Shoe guidanceFLAT RUBBER (NOT FOAM)
Soles need to be 1/3 inch thick and have FLAT RUBBER (NOT FOAM) on the bottom. If you have a lot of traction on the sole you don't need Yardkicks.
Mount Yardkicks on a FLAT area of your shoe so that the disc part of the cleat has FULL CONTACT with your sole for support. Do not hang off raised traction.
ALL SHOES ARE DIFFERENT, the thinner the sole the more you will feel traction underfoot.
Yardkicks are designed to be permanent
Avoid repeatedly removing and installing your studs - this causes sole material to weaken and be less supportive. Softer, spongier sole materials will not hold Yardkicks.
