    What are you wearing FG or SG?

    I wear adizeros and have absolutely no problems at all, at the end of the day, someone thing like that is down to technique rather than what your studs are like.

    Hey guys, I had a quick question regarding boot repair. If this isn't the proper thread I apologize and feel free to delete this post.

    Anyway, I have some 2010 black and yellow, synthetic f50 adizeros, similar to the ones posted in this link...(http://www.footy-boots.com/files/2010/05/adizero-black-sun-yellow.jpg)

    The sole plate on one of them has a crack running from the left side all the way to the right side. Is there anything I can use to repair them, (gorilla glue, liquid cement, ect...)? They are in otherwise great condition.

    Thanks for your time.

    Yes I've found the same. I've also just knackered my ankle in the LZs, rolled it heavily and it's a mess. My fault really, I don't really think that the Sprintframe soleplate is for turf.

    Does the blackout adiPure 11Pro mean that a new adiPure is on the way? Seems like a really short run.

    I was doing ball rolls alright I just didn't feel completely confident doing them it felt like the studs would slip off the top of the ball at any moment, I don't get that feeling when I use my T90s, they were my friend's adizeros so they were a size too big and the ball wasn't that great either so that might have had an effect but I was just curious if it was a one off incident since I'm considering leather adizeros and wanted to know if I would have to adjust

    First thing is that the studs on adizeros are conical and the studs on your T90s are like plastic blades. They may take some time to adjust too as the blades give you a longer surface area to work with.

    If the boots were too big the front of the boot wouldnt have been forced down so they were probably a bit like clown shoes and the front 2 studs werent really doing anything.

    If you have a slippy ball (and wet weather) then you probably would have noticed a difference. I think if you wanted a pair of adizeros and got the correct size getting used to the studs would take you less than 5 minutes. I switched from CTRs to adizeros and now i think they are the best boots ive worn in a while.

    I agree, can't believe how maligned they've been by reviewers.

    From someone who has worn synthetics since the orignal vapors (yes, im old!) I have to say that the synthetic on the current adizero is the best ive ever ever worn, they keep their shape but give you enough movement to make the boot comfortable. Adidas have really designed a good upper here, to me its perfect much better than their last effort on the 2s.

    I just think they are a great boot - i dont mind if adidas change the design for the 4s but i really hope they keep the synthetic and the sprint frame the same because its brilliant and i cant see how they can make it any better.

    I've heard that the synthetic is being changed to be more aligned to Nike's current upper on the Vapor VIIIs, the leather feel one.

    Thats typical - I find a boot that i really love and in my eyes are perfect boots, and then they change the design. They did it with V1.06s i absolutely LOVED those boots and then they brought out some rubbish that was NOTHING like the 06 design at all.

    At the minute im not a fan of the upper on the new vapors, i find the upper gives too much but like you say its imitating leather, just lover the fit of the current adizeros and i dont see why they need to change something thats working (how many complaints have you heard of the upper on the synthetic model ripping or coming away from the sole?) just to keep up with Nike?

    I think you've nailed it Apple.. Adidas have seen how popular the Vapor upper has been and have decided to copy it. Personally, I liked the upper. I had to adapt to it after using leather for so long, but once I did it was a very nice experience.

    Its change for the sake of it in my eyes. Its a money spinning venture and people will buy into it. Unless theres a major difference (which there isnt), then I shall be stocking up on the current AdiZeros.

    I was wondering: Do the Copas stretch?
    I'm, thinking of buying them, but want to know if I should get them 1/2 size smaller. Also, has anyone cut the tongue off?

    Yeah they stretch, a lot of ppl recommend that you go half to a full size down in leather boots. They will mould to your foot though, you might jut have to put up with initial tightness.

    A size and a half? Wow! I remember I had a size 6 in WC and by the time I'd finished with them I swear they were a size 8 - lol they stretched so much they had over hang on the outside of the boots.

    I got the worst blisters I've ever had from my WC both balls of my feet had skin removed to the size of a 50p that was before they stretched! Nice classic boot though!

    Maybe I am just old school but I absolutely love the look of Copa. Just pure class in black and white and looks great even after years of wear. (Somehow, the black never fades out but the soleplate turns yellow after awhile.) I like quality things that last and Copas has stood the test of time.

    More Pics of the New Predator Incurza RX Primary colorway it will also be released in a rather beautiful classic Predator Black/Red/White colorway-

    The Bottom pic shows the Reverse colorway of the new Adipower Kakari's


    And on the Matter of the Black outs and white-out's that where just released it's not as the traditional end of range colors but a mid life update, the Adizero III is only due in December and the 11Pro's will go on till after that.

    Looking at the 11pro whiteouts on soccerbible
    Why does the whiteout have a black flash up the front of the right boot & not on the left??
    Looks untidy!
