would you all warrranty theses? i love the euro vapors they fit perfect but im afraid this is going to keep getting worse... the left foot has about 4 inches of seperation and the right maybe 1-2. They fit much better than my faux leather ix's in my opinion although my ix's arent broken in they are much tighter.
As you've probably seen from previous posts in this thread, thats a common problem with Vapors. But, looking at yours I would probably try and send them back before your warranty runs out as thats a pretty bad split.
yea thats kinda what i was thinking... i have a pair of the ix faux leather blacks but i think the fit of the viii's was much better for me personally. heres a comparison picture
So were the VIIIs wider???
Yeah the fit is a bit better for wider footed players on the VIII.. For some reason I kept getting blisters on my big toe when using the IX's I could feel the stud pressure on that area where I was getting problems so I just gave up on the IX and sold them.
Mercurial do you have wide feet too?
I tried on the 9s when i got home and they feel a little better, but it still looks like im the incredible hulk with my foot about to burst out. The 8s are like putting on slippers! Beautiful. I really think its the material. If i could upload a pick i would.
This afternoon i was adamant that i was swapping them for hvp's now im not so sure
Quick q: has any tried using 11s studs on their mv8s or 9s or is it recommend to stick with 11s and 2 13s studs on the heel?
SoccerLoco still has the Mercurial Vapor XV in stock if anyone was looking for a pair.
My feet are average width, I just think the material doesnt have as much give on the IX's, the fit I had was perfect aside from the stud pressure I had.
What were you wearing? Fg or sg? Tbh sfiii cost my bug toenails! Gonna keep them cos i love the look n still feel better than sfii's now ive worn them round a bit
Where can I get replacement laces for my Nike Mercurial I & II's?
They are thinner than other normal laces.
When it comes to Nike Tiempo R10 models. Was there a "top" model and a "middle" and an "entry" level boot, like the Tiempo Legend, Mystic, Natural etc?
I find some which look a lot better quality.
There is the "Guri", which looks like this one. But I also have a couple of pairs which have writing on the bottom which says something like "Pairao Alegia", where the "Zoom Air" is on the Legends.
Sadly you won't be able to get them - Nike never even sold replacement laces at the time the boots were released. You will either have to make do with with them in the state they are in (maybe take them out and wash them?) or go and but some thicker laces and make do with those.
It sounds like you have an old pair of boots hence the stud question too, the sad thing is you will find it VERY hard to get the correct studs, stud key and anything else that comes with the boots.
It takes a lot to wear the studs down on the I & IIs so they must be in some state if you want to remove them. I had a quick look on eBAY for you and there aren't any stud keys on there. Maybe someone on here will have a spare that they can sell to you. But i think you might be fighting a losing battle!
Guri was low end, Brasileiro was mid, and Ronaldinho was top.
Yeah I have some that are worn down. I was going to swap them around, so the best condition boots have the best studs also.
As for the laces. I took the laces out to clean them, but ruined the ends so now they won't go back in.
The laces are a big deal in my eyes. I think thicker, non standard laces will look strange and ruin them.
So how do I tell them apart?
Hey @AllanBhoy , looks like you'll be getting even more 'tinfoil tongue' boots!
Found this on instagram, some new colorways for the Vapor, CTR (orange) and the Stealth respectively. I think the black/white/green one looks not too bad while the last one (bottom right) looks like a repeat color of the green lasers.
geez omg @FootySpy, we posted the same thing at the same time :/ except u beat me to it in that split second.
Ha I'm not surprised you shared it, that guy posts some quality posts. Recently he leaked a pic of the Superfly IV soleplate, but it seems to have been taken down. Knew I should have saved it!
What kind of serious damage? Been thinking about getting a pair of HVs but now this :S
It's a cut from the guys studs man. I've send my hypervenoms back and im getting a pair of f50's now because i was a big mercurial fan but i don't like the fit of the 9's. So i think i'll stick with the f50's untill the vapor x drops..
How are the vapor ix studs on artificial ground?
Almost guaranteed to break
The vapor IX ag plate is superb on ag and hg while the fg plate is superb for all natural grass fields.
