6 SET INITIAL CLEAT POSITION USING YOUR ARCH LENGTH

Set the initial cleat position according to the difference between shoe size and measured arch length. If the arch length is longer or shorter than the shoe size, the cleat maybe positioned fore or aft from the center line of the cleat range of the shoe by the difference of the scale.
*For example, if the right shoe size is 43 and the arch length measurement is 44, the cleat should be positioned (distance A) forward, toward the toe end, from the cleat range center line of the shoe sole.

    If the measured arch length and shoe size are equal, set the cleat at the standard cleat position (See table below) which is at the center of the ball of the foot.

    If the measured arch length is longer than the shoe size, move the cleat forward, toward the toe side, the required length from the center position.

    If the measured arch length is shorter than the shoe size, move the cleat back, toward the heel side, the required length from the center position.
