    I’m thinking maybe I could write “FAKE” all over them with permanent marker and then send them back
    Not sure if I’d get into trouble for that, or if it would stop me getting my refund.

    Usually Indonesia or China.
    Ebay should do something about it and just write something in the feedback that you received fake shoes. I see many really good copies these days and usually they have the same box as well.

    I’ve been sold a few copies over the years. None as good as this though.

    What I don’t understand though, if they can make the boots so well and to such good standard, why the hell don’t they put the correct art number and country of manufacture? No one would ever know then, until they fall apart.

    Hi guys,

    Just wondering what is the best glue to stick boots back together when the leather/upper lifts from the sole plate?

    Also any tips or techniques for fixing this issue?

    Cheers

    Hello guys. Does anybody use heel grips if you fee that your boots a little bit later? I mean such grips as here https://womenmotorist.com/best-heel-grips-for-shoes-too-big/. Or it is better to buy new ones? What can you recommend? I feel that one of my boots is like al little big bigger and I am afraid that I can get an injury.

    Anyone every owned Puma Kings? (I'm talking the oldschool version not any of the recent modern updates).

    I'm just wondering about sizing? Is it best to go true to size? Or half a size down?

    thanks!

    ps - also, are the white stripes on the side leather or synthetic?

    I've always assumed they were leather but I've seen one old review say they were synthetic.

    I'm talking about the Puma King Top DI here.

    I went true to size...I have had both the standard and Made In Italy Puma King Top DI. The standards seemed to fit slightly tighter than the M.I.I. I'm not sure if the form stripes are synthetic or maybe a highly processed leather (they have a leather grain finish). The form stripe material is a little sturdier than the upper material and not quite as flexible, but it's not bothersome after they are broken in.

    Great thanks! I was thinking of trying the M.I.I but can't find anywhere in the UK or EU that still has them. My local store has the standard though.

    [​IMG] Hey guys! I bought these Nike Mercurial Vapor III right after Italy won the World Cup in 2006. I’ve never worn them and was wondering if anybody could give me a value on them. I know they are rare as only 250 of them were made. Appreciate any insight on these, thanks!

    Depending on the size you could make quite a lot off of them. At least $400 but probably more.

    Hi guys, I live in a tropical country where it rains often, Singapore. I was wondering if it's logical to have a pair of Soft Ground boots in my arsenal for rainy days. The natural fields when battered by rain is pretty soft and muddy at times (people who lives in Singapore or neighbouring countries will know) but I'm not sure if they are soft enough to be using SG studs as I have asked a few mates of mine and they thought SG boots are absolutely not required. Thanks!

    There's Umbro Speciali Pro 98 and Umbro Speciali Eternal Pro.

    There's also Diadora Brasil 'Made in Italy', all white except for a little Italy flag.
