    Potentially stupid question, but I moved to an area where my SG Hypervenom 3 don't get any use anymore because all I play on is AG. How much of a risk would it be injury wise to replace the SG studs with some screw in nylon/rubber studs and play on AG?

    I wish I could find some too, those were my favorite vapors. I bought 3 pair but they don't work anymore unfortunately.

    Quick question to anyone, does the Nike premier II stretch after a while. I don't know if going true to size or get it bigger because of socks.

    They stretch some. I recently got a pair half a centimetre longer than my feet barefoot, and they feel very good.

    Sorry to ask another question but are Nike premier II considered wide. Which boot is the best for wide feet. I've been looking but can't find a reliable answer.

    I actually did this to my SG-Pro Legend 6 and it worked fine. I got replacement turf studs for American football cleats so it was pretty compatible with AG.

    If you’re referring to the 6-stud SG configuration though it might be a touch unsafe because of stud pressure and instability.

    They are! Among Nike models the wide ones are the Premiers, Tiempos, the Magista Obra 2, and the Hypervenom Phantom 3 are wide. You could also try the low-cut Tech Craft boots if you find some on eBay.

    I agree. I've got wide feet and the Premier and Tiempo seem to work wonders for them. The Obra 2 were also good, but I found that they didn't stretch enough for me, but that's probably because they're made out of a synthetic material as opposed to leather.

    I haven't tried the Hypervenom.

    Mizuno Morelia 2's are the one boot that has fit me perfectly when it comes to width.

    Damn it! Prodirectsoccer are still listing Nike Premier II White/Metallic Gold and when I pick the size it adds the boot to the basket, but when I go to the basket it says the item is sold out.
    I tried with the White/Racer Blue, same thing.

    I wanted that White/Metallic Gold so bad.

    I searched all over the internet for it but found nothing.

    If anyone knows some place or shop or where this boot can be found in a size 9US I will be grateful forever.

    EDIT : I found it in these websites.

    Those sites seem pretty sketchy. I wouldn't order from any of them. IE, it's "Worldsoccershop" without a hyphen for the real site.

    To my surprise, today I tried again with ProDirectSoccer, and it worked. We got a 7-digit order number, but no delivery date confirmed yet. Under the delivery there's "Carriage to be confirmed".

    How can I track my order?

    You'll get a separate email with a tracking number when the item shipped.

    Ahaaah, great, thanks man. The most important is that now I can be assured the boot is coming, right? No further complications?

    Sorry for my dumb questions, it's the first experience with PDS and i'm a lot excited for this particular boot :D.

    They usually dispatch within a day or two.

    You can email their customer service. I've reached out to PDS customer service a few times, and they've been quick to respond each time.

    I managed to find a few things in their catalog that they didn't actually have, and sending a follow up for the order status settled it.

    PDS are having major issues with their systems since the world cup.
    I placed an order and did not receive a confirmation email about the order or when it was shipped. Their customer support did not get back to any of my emails till a week later.
    It is frustrating especially for us overseas customers.

    Thanks.
    Well the delivery address is Monchengladbach, so if they dispatch in two days, maybe 5 days max my cousin receives the boot.
    Also I sent them an e-mail about how the boot is listed with the size but out of stock, they didn't respond but looks like they fixed the case themselves today.
    I'm glad I didn't give up, and kept checking for that boot everyday.


    I agree, in addition to the "sold out" issue, there was another problem when I decided to buy the Wolf Grey/Light Crimson colorway, the boot is ready to dispatch and when you click on confirm, the button kept reading "processing" forever, my cousin tried 3 times before giving up. I lost all hope and felt jinxed maybe, two boots out of stock and the third one doesn't want to get bought loool.
    Until today when I did my daily check to see if anything changed and, BOOOOM, it's available and the purchase is confirmed.

    Everyone is complaining about this issue where an items shows in stock and then out of stock when you go to the cart. Also, they removed the currency conversion so it is very inconvenient to do the math to US dollars :)
    Their search sucks too. I think they upgraded their systems before testing them out completely and now they are facing massive issues.
    I received my order yet the site dose not show tracking information and still show that my order in progress.

    Yeah, it was the same for me. I recently ordered a pair of Premiers. Wasn't able to track them at all, but they arrived very quickly anyways.

    Well, my Umbro Speciali Eternal is 9US and is a little bit spacey, if the Nike Premier 9US is a little bit tighter than I think it will be a perfect fit.

    Just got my premier II, unfortunately they were really tight. Have to get a 1/2 size bigger. Does anyone take out the insoles of new boots to get them to fit, or am I weird? IMG1858411632913298872.jpeg

    What's your usual size?
    I ordered the exact same boot and tomorrow (if everything goes well) my cousin will bring it to me from Germany.
    I'm generally 8.5US/9US. I have a 9US Umbro Speciali Eternal and it's a little bit loose now after all this time. When I first bought it, it fit my feet exactly.
    Now with the Premier I heard you have to go 1/2 a size up, So I decided to stick with the 9US in hopes it maybe fit as a 8.5US Umbro Speciali Eternal.

    Maybe your boot will stretch with time, as it's high quality Kangaroo Leather.
    By very tight you mean it bends your toes? or just very snug on your skin? because if it's the latter, I think it will be ok.

    Unfortunately it's do tight that if I wore them for more than 5 minutes my feet would go numb. If I wore them without insoles and no socks it would fit perfectly, but I've rather not wear boots without insoles anymore. Im usually a size 10 in Nike, in Superfly IV, vapor III and adizeros first gen.

    Ever since the Vapor I I've always sworn by MV and haven't worn much else aside from the occasional boot I'd have as secondary options. Decided to go down the list and give my opinion on the models I've had. Would love to hear others thoughts as well :geek:

    I
    - Game changing boots, but they murdered your achilles. I ended up returning them and getting the Talaria I since they didn't have blister issues.
    II - Excellent fit, fixed the achilles blister problems. Had probably five pairs of these bad boys. This model had my favorite colorways too.
    III - Felt they were really clunky, and the upper felt thicker than the II which I didn't like. Cactus is a top 5 MV colorway however
    IV - Decent boot, but I felt the lace cover was unnecessary
    V - Dumb lace cover again. Pretty meh overall. Thick upper was very un-Vapor like
    VI - Abominations. Easily the worst Vapors ever. Stupid lace cover, thick upper, and a stiff as a board soleplate. The toe was large and bulbous and felt like I was wearing work boots. Nike should recall these and throw them all in a fire. It isn't too late.
    VII - Got rid of the lace cover but kept the awful soleplate from the VI
    VIII - Probably my favorite model as it's a return to minimal design and very comfortable. Love these but can't find them at a good price anymore unfortunately :(
    IX - Never had a pair but i assume it's very similar to the VIII based on construction
    X - Never had these but I imagine I would like these more than the VIII with the lack of tongue
    XI - Didn't hate the different soleplate but didn't love it. Also the upper felt thicker than previous versions, which I don't like
    XII - Haven't owned

    So, yesterday I finally got my Nike Premier II, size 9US.

    [​IMG]

    I tried it and it was a perfect fit, in every inch of my foot, EXCEPT for that damn 2nd toe of mine, I have a greek-shaped foot which is a problem because football boots manufacturers don't care about this shape.

    Here's a picture of my foot.

    [​IMG]

    I have those extra 5 or 6 millimeters above 27 cm. 27 cm is exactly 9US.

    That toe is my main problem regarding buying boots, because of it, my Umbro Speciali Eternal is a half size bigger than my foot, it's also 9 US but it's true that Premier are half a size smaller.
    The Nike Premier 9US fits me exactly as the adidas Kaiser 5 Liga 8US.

    I accepted the fact that my toe is the problem, so I'm really satisfied with the Premier's fit, if I had gone a half size bigger it would be exactly like what the Speciali has become, loose.

    I have a game next Thursday, I'll wear thin socks and I'll give a feedback right then.
