That boot is of a supreme quality, I think it's one of the best boots ever made !
This been asked to death and I'm sorry for it. I intend to buy the Brasils given the decent price now (first ever boot I purchased was a Diadora Europa RTX 12 in 2002 when I was 16 playing my best football, mediocre now, but I digress). Unfortunately, these do not retail in Singapore and I can't get to try them
I think I'm weird when it comes to shoe sizing. Many times I have to return and change. But it occurred to me, what is 'true to size' to you guys? Some like their big toe to touch the edge of the shoe while I prefer to have at least half to 3/4 of a finger's space between the toe and shoe. I'm super sensitive when its off even by half a size bigger or smaller.
I wear the following (with a finger's space):
Asics X-Fly 1 - US9.5 *runs small, not true
Asics X-Fly 2 - US10
Puma King Top di - US10
Puma King Finale SL - US10
Mizuno Morelia II TM - US9.5 (too small, hurts like hell)
Nike MercurialX Proximo - US10 (too small)
Boots I've tried but not owned
Adidas Ace 15+ Primeknit - US10.5
Adidas Predator LZ 2 US10.5
I think I'm a US10 (again, with some space) if the product was manufactured 'correctly'. Josh of SR4U claims his are true to size with no space and with you guy's input, it got me confused.
Sorry for the long post, but can anybody help, especially those who owns or have tried the above boots?
No worries. I went half a size down though that's because I get my boots stretch to fit. Mine are a half size smaller than my Morelia IIs.
Thank you derbybank13 for the reply. But may I ask, were both the boots snug without space or with a little room out of the box?
I get no room at the end of my boots. My toes are slightly curled when I get new boots and I stretch them out. I hate having any space anywhere in the boot.
Again, thanks for the reply! Guess I'm very different from you, I have very bad ingrown nails in both toes thus my preference. Curled up toes sounds bad for me haha
Completely understandable then!!
New Diadora M. Winner RB revealed
Shame they released info today of all days because these boots look excellent.
Oh man. I think I'll have to pull the trigger on this one!!
Just wanted to say thank you to all of the support on this website, lots of great people. Diadora has to be one of the best Boot makers around. With the up coming Baggio release I thought I would throw up some Retro 90's Diadoras to show the quality from this company.
The Infamous Diadora Marco Van Basten
Any of you guys having heel lockdown problems with the Brasil OG? I feel like mine are always slipping. Is it just an issue of breaking them in a lot more?
Does anyone know if this Baggio release means the OG Brasil is done? I hope they don't do that.
I haven't but I also do a runner's knot on them to help with that.
Still available according to the catalog but it looks like they are becoming more limited.
The new Matchwinners from Diadora.
Love that fact that they were one of the first boots w/a bootie/nopreane internal sleeve and now they opted to ditch that on the remake.
These are much closer to the player issue model that Baggio wore in 1994 than the retail model.
I really hope some SuperGoals are next, with a proper folder tongue followed by the Weah version of what was supposed to be a Brasil (but was very different). And hope that they don't kill the Brasil OG...still the best boot ever, IMO.
Thought this might belong in here too. After breaking them in for awhile they are now perfect. No more heel slip issues, great comfort and touch.
Absolute beauts! I see Pro Direct has them reduced to £110. Great price for anyone interested, have my eye on the white ones.
Has anyone tried Diadora Blueshield Fg boots?
Apparently, they are made of kangaroo leather, with 3d grip material on top. They also have a sock like feature.
Here is a link to their US webiste.
I want to buy them, but not sure about sizing.
I wear 11.5 US in Adidas Ace 16.1, Puma King Top Di, Hypervenoms and
12 US in Puma Evopower and Magistas.
i am 10.5 US in Adidas COPAs.
Anyone know anything about them?
Diadoras normally run slightly long as a rule. The are also pretty wide. At least half a size down.
My Diadora Brasil OG Blackouts are size 8.5US and fit me perfectly which is a half size smaller than I normally wear.
For reference to other modern or recently purchased leather boots I wear:
Tiempo Legend VI 9.5US
Tiempo Legend VII 9US
Mizuno Morelia II MIJ 9US
I ordered this for 137€
Diadora m.winner. The size is the same as in the brasil. I would go half size down. I think there are not a great difference to the brasils
Diadora you have my respects for making high quality astro turf shoes
Here are the diadora baggio 3 og. I get them from unisports. Fit is like the other brasils I would say go down half size
