    Can I get some sizing help for those that have Adipowers and LZ's?

    I have the Adipowers and Adipower SL's in US8.5 with the regular Adipowers pretty tight and I have to wear the light insoles in the SL's in order for them to be comfortable (comfort insole pushes my toes to far up).
    I plan to order MiAdidas LZ's in HG witht the light insole, so my question is, should I stay with the US8.5 or go with a 9 since I've heard a few say they fit a bit smaller than the Adipowers?

    Thanks for your help.

    Does anyone think that adidas kind of copied the Nike GS with this prototype? The tape in the midfoot and the texture overall reminds me of the GS.

    It is similar but, I don't think the GS was that far ahead of this in development when it was leaked....The midfoot "tape" covering the seams is not unlike a Copa when you take off all the stripes with a seam ripper.

    I say the GS ripped off the Copa...hahaha.

    Wow, those fake boot sites are cleaning up their presentation - it's almost a shame that their knock-off boots are so easy to spot!

    The adiPowers and LZ's fit the same so whatever you have for adiPowers should be the same as LZ's.

    Littlewoods (catalogue) are now displaying pictures of the silver/orange Messi colourway on their website. The boots will be avaliable 15th September. I'm guessing this will be the last colourway in the 3s as the 4s are released in December.

    If your AdiPower's fit tight then don't get the same size in the LZ's, I did that and there almost unplayable due to the fact they won't stretch, its worth going half a size up. Wish I had done that tbh, great boot. Also remember that the AdiPower is a leather boot and will stretch to accommodate your foot whereas the LZ won't. Hope this helps.

    I sized up a 1/2 size, best decision I could have made as my adiPower was skin tight and the same size in the LZ would have killed my foot. I don't find the fit shape to be same either; the adiPower was rounder in the toe box.

    Wish I'd done the same, the LZ is a great boot. Still believe the AdiPower is better though, maybe the fit was the reason, plus the leather upper and bladed sole.

    Thanks for you help everyone, I think I will go up half a size...my Adipower SL's were so tight that i have to wear the ultra light insole for enough toe room.

    Yup, these and the Messi ones. I should be getting a pair of these next week hopefully they are as good as the current f50's.

    I had a look through the 2013 Catalogue, It looks like some good times are coming for Adidas Fans.
    I was able to get a picture of the 2013 Rugby Range.

    I feel that the overall design has continued to decline generation after generation. I'm just talking appearance here but they nailed it with the first gen. The 1.5 was good. Didn't like the 2nd and this is incarnation continues the fall.

    I liked the 2nd and the current boot design, but its not just that. I feel like these boots are perfect. The fit, the synthetic everything about these boots is so nice. So really im just hoping that hasnt changed in the new boots. But it already looks as if they could be a bit wider looking at the front of the boot.

    I'd largely agree.
