    Adizeros have awfully thin insoles with no padding in them, thats why i stopped wearing them and switched to the LZs. Even if you put the comfort insoles in they are still rubbish, you might want to try putting the insoles out of your NC into your adizero's and see how that goes.

    Yea, you don't want to mess around with super hard ground. Got a stress fracture in my left tibia training on SUPER hard ground in FG boots a few years back. Not a good time!

    I repped...not because of the fracture, but the sound advice.

    I echo this...be careful, the bones and joints were designed to pound up to 2000x your bodyweight in force on rock hard ground for hours and hours....speaking from an evolutionary standpoint. Wear something that evenly distributes your weight to reduce stress.

    One of my Korean friends did this in his Pred X SG's. I couldn't believe it.

    If the ground is too hard for FG or even HG, use turf soles or indoor.

    Venoms are up on NikeID. Expensive, but tonnes of decent colour options.

    Hey everyone, sinze im having a horrible time trying to sell my BNIB hypervenoms so i can purchase adidas predator lz2's, I attempted to trade and someone wants to trade me there BNIB GS2's for Hypervenoms + a tiny bit cash . Anyone know how the gs2 fits for people with wide feet? The vapor ix 9s fit ( they stretched out ) and i was wondering if the gs2's fit the same?

    i believe you have to have narrow feet to make the gs2's work. Im not 100% sure because they never made them in my size. But from what I have read, they are a narrow boot!

    Hey guys, first time posting in here. I got the new hypervenom boots today and am curious to see what people's initial reactions have been to it and will be at a later date after they've been played with in games. I've done the usual walking around the house with new boots thing and they feel great already. They're sort of like the vapors but better? Anyway! It'll be interesting to see how these boots do! Here's a couple shots I took when I got them today.

    Sorry if I've rambled on and/or is a pointless post!

    Possibly the best boot box I've ever seen - Shame I heard mixed reviews about the boots.

    As for whoever is having trouble sending their BNIB HV can't you just return them to where you had them from if they are brand new they should let you return them surely?

    What doesn't make sense is that in the US nikes strategy was spot on, but in Europe release the launch colourway on a Thursday, black pack on Saturday and on the same day as the launch colourway do a Nike ID?! Baffling
    Unbelievable box by the way!!

    Were those boxed for a select few or did everyone get them? - I said to someone last night that it seemed like Nike really hyped the boots and then they took ages and ages to release the boots especially in the UK so i think some people may have lost interest. They should have just released the boots world wide on the same date.

    The guy in the Nike store said that there were only 5 in the whole of Manchester ( not sure whether this is true or not ). I was number 3 apparently.
