    Swanny had a pic a while back (that has now been nicked several times) with release dates.

    EDIT: Here it is, courtesy of Swanny as always

    Horse face Drogba has been wearing the HG MV4 during the African Cup Of Nations. I saw the sole of his boot loads considering he spent most of his time rolling around on the floor as if he'd be snipered!

    I really like the look of the Ronaldinho 2s. Something about them has really peaked my interest, but the Laser2s are just hideous. Looks like Nike added that mesh/netting stuff to the inside and outside of the toebox area, looks very "predator" like to me.

    So we have had the new vapor IV's for a week at my store now and of course I purchased them right away. I must say I really like them the only thing I don't like is that they are wider than the III's but I quickly solved that by replacing the insoles with the ones from my first touch's. Also they seem to have gotten rid of the little piece of carbon fiber under the insole. Also I've been wondering why people are calling them aero's? I, like Swanny, have never heard them called like that by the Nike rep, catalog or even the box!

    Although they look to crease excessively, the teijin microfiber looks another level up from the Vapor III's. I may be wrong, but I'm assuming the touch on those is even better then the MVIII. Thanks for pics enjoy those bad boys!
