    Not the Furons but 2 years ago I decided to buy the original Visaros and boy did those split. Quite literally the upper and the soleplate split up to about half of the way. Good thing I only got them for $20 from a Marshalls.

    I have never actually encountered bad service from them. I’ve ordered countless times from the American site, and twice from the UK one. In the American one I love that they offer overnight delivery for about a dollar more than USPS’s two-day priority mail.

    Oh I meant the UK site. Its been rough whenever I've dealt with them. The US site is pretty good though. Never had a problem and one time managed to picked up some Pantofolas they had mispriced. Got $200 shoes for $60. Should've ordered more at the time!

    I just called them and again they had no straight answer saying that the law now states that VAT will be added to any order regardless if you are in or outside of the EU. I asked them about why I don't get confirmation emails or dispatch emails, and again had no answer.
    I buy from them for the selection and before for price. Now that soccer.com dose not ship KL leather shoes to California, PDS sometimes is best option.
    Now with VAT added which sometimes around 25-45 dollars, depends on what you are buying, they are not as attractive as before. Other retailers in Europe don't add VAT.

    What, that sounds ridiculous. I know they're halfway through Brexit but still!? lol

    ah Visaros... most comfortable boots I've ever ran in. Only boot that i would really agree with the whole '90 minute box to box running' marketing. at least for the first 6 months.

    Anyone heard of or have tried the Lotto Stadio 45? I can't seem to find any reviews of it. It's available at a store near me and I went to check it out and the build quality seems so good! Especially impressed with the stitches. Basically the sole separation will only occur when the leather tears. Super build quality

    You should review it! Lotto has a lot of really good looking boots out and I'd love to hear what the quality is like

    Today I received a pair of Furon 4.0 in the mail (I recommend if you’re ordering from WorldSoccerShop DO NOT get the cheapest shipping. It took 2 weeks) and I gotta say it’s pretty quality. Feels good on-feet too. The stringbag looks a little on the cheap side.

    Upon closer inspection I saw on the right boot that the stitching on the ‘tongue’ is starting to come apart and does not look like it should have passed quality control.

    Overall I’m pretty confident that I got the right size (go TTS) and for comparison’s sake I would say it feels like a Vapor 10 if the upper on those were a lot softer and more pliable. The fit is the same too, just less restrictive. I’d probably give this an 8.5/10 on first impressions. The lacing system could’ve been deeper but, hey, it looks cool and thank goodness it even has laces to begin with.

    If anyone is interested you can go pick these up for dirt cheap on WorldSoccerShop. Just don’t pick the cheapest shipping option.

    you gonna try them for a few more games? I'm curious to hear about it overstretching and stuff. considering how soft the upper is, and the shallow lacing system lol.
