    Lol, yeah Miracle or probably even a tier lower. As long as they have the same synthetic material i'd get them.

    It feels fine, it's bends a lot unlike the other vapors with fibre glass soles, I would say the sole is no different to the adizeros. Traction is much better though.

    How was the stud pressure? Some of my mates are considering buying them, and we only play on turf.

    Haven't played with them yet but out of the box, these are Nike best Vapor to date. Thinner than the 3 and more supple than any of the other Vapors. May have to get multiple colorways of this boot the way I did with previous versions of the Vapors.

    Finally got some time off to visit my local shop and take a look at the vapor. Even though I had tested them it's still crazy to see the finished product. Super soft upper. Simple classic design. No gimmicks. Sizing is different. They didn't have my usual size in stock (8) but they did have 7.5. And to be honest they fit me perfect. The owner said these new vapors run half a size big. I didnt have a size 8 to compare to but the 7.5 were a perfect fit.

    I def will be NIKEid a pair

    Sizing wise compared to the Vapor III I would say half size down. They really are a boot I suggest everyone at least tries on at their local shop, they are spectacular. I've also worn SG boots on 3g turf before and because of it know the stud configuration won't bother me, which seems to not be the case for most people, but everything else on the boot is wonderful.

    I get no stud pressure at all from them, they are fine on turf.

    The more I wear them the more the upper reminds me of the V1.06 you don't get that ping on the ball you get from other synthetics because it's so soft so that takes a bit of getting used too.

    That's a very small comparison.. Good enough for me though.

    Sorry, I had to. More seriously though, the VIII upper is thinner and softer. Seems as if your foot determines the shaping of the boot around it more than previous versions did. The III had a very sleek shape but your foot contoured around that which for some with wider feet made it more uncomfortable. Not sure the exact weights, but the VIII *seem* lighter than the III (If I'm wrong I know I'm going to get crucified for that statement)

    They look good, i'm just waiting for my local shop to stock them so I can get the tightest fit possible.

    Can you take a photo without laces and with the tongue pushed down to see the exact thickness of the upper? And another photo of the edge of the tongue to see how thick that is as well?

    It seems you have other vapors, a comparison between the VI/VII and the VIII would be neat to see.
