    Top man!

    I am surely going to order some blackouts with my pending voucher...not Safari print though.

    Has anyone been able to establish is the black CR7 colorway that has been going around is the actual Vapor, a fake, or the step down. I ask because it looks to have four heel studs, but it seems in the photo to be more contoured than the other step downs.

    CR7 was spotted with a four stud heel on his FG (unclear if it was a MV Vll sole or the Vlll in the front with four studs in the back), so maybe (but doubtfully) this could be Nike actually giving the public the real modified outsole of a pro?

    I think that would be a great idea by Nike. Similar to what they do with the KH Wave Ignitus... If anyone could tell us that would be great, although I doubt Nike would do something like that. :/

    I have said for several years that they should make their "elite" line shoes made to the actual "exact specifications of championship athletes" like their old mission statement said. By that I mean, put the pros boots into production, and charge more. I would have paid $400 for a pair of Lasers with Torres's insole and the InterTract outsole way before a carbon fiber hunk of crap.

    Saw this picture on Nike's facebook account, Could these be two possible new colorways?

    LEFT: Red upper with White nike swoosh on upper and navy blue/black swoosh on instep?

    MIDDLE: Full white upper with Gold/Yellow tongue (or is it just the laces?)

    RIGHT: full white-out, not sure if this will be an actual colorway though.

    How do you black them out? I just don't get what they mean by blackout. Forgive me for the question. I just don't get it. Is just putting everything in Black on the custom build sheet?

    I was considering trying for it once. However, I'd sooner just enjoy my football I think. And buy boots with my own money.

    Only couple of Q's, Ill also ask instore if noone knows, But what is the differece between cushioned and responsive insoles? Also what country are they made in?

    And is it confirmed that the CR Colourway will be the black boot with the blue/pink rim? they look awesome!!

    Oh, I saw it as a place you get into to get scouted.. Rather then being released to get into the Nike academy to to rescouted of you
    Know what I mean?

    It's strange though as they play reserve teams, puma and adidas should
    Make academies, that would be interesting to see

    On NikeID you do every option in black. I prefer the solid graphic, because I think the Safari option looks stupid.

    I did some other fun colorway options based on the black upper...I was toying with inverting the colors on the mango and making a black with mango upper, but I am sticking with the blackouts...the only other option for me would be black with white.

    Didn't see where it said "economic model" but I'm pretty sure they're fake
