    How would you say "cleats" in Spanish. As in the shoes you wear for soccer and football?

    I had a student use the word "cornamusa" that she got off of some site, but I thought that meant "bagpipes." What else does "cornamusa" mean?

    I've never heard the word "cornamusa", but this may help you with the Spanish word for "cleats". I've always said either "zapatillas de fútbol" or "botas de clavos"

    Edited to add: I just realized we also say "botas de fútbol", possibly more often than we call them "zapatillas"

    "cornmusa" is also a term for "amarre"-----a two pronged hook to secure a rope--------"cleat".

    "cleats" is also used for the "studs" on footware for football--------"tacos" is a common term used.

    Botines are the shoes themselves. The cleats are tacos, tacones or tapones depending on the geographic area it's used.
