They are synthetic boots dude. In my post I said it works with leather, and my friends have tried it with synthetics. I would suggest giving it one more go with the water, but leave them for longer than you would with leather. Definately wear them around the house. If your game is today, you wont ha...

Re: Bought them smaller...

Why hello, how's everybody. I have a few questions. I've always been quite picky with the cleats I buy, not by the brand, not by the price, but with the sizing, comfort, and breaking in. I couldn't careless if my cleats are the new Vapors, or a pair of Crocs, all I care about is how I play in them....

I think you could get away with them on firm ground, but defently not hard ground. I have a buddy who wears Puma V1.10 soft ground on everything except turf and his studs are beggining to wear out pretty quick. If you want an "all-turf" cleat, I would suggest getting a firm ground boot with the "co...

put on your match day socks. Tie the boots as you would for a game. Get 2 bin bags - you know black garbage bags for U.S readers. Put each foot inside a bin bag, wrap the boot around the foot - I secure with tape, around the upper ankle/ lower shin. get a bucket/bath tub (bath yub is better as you c...

Personally, I know you said studying was just as important to you, but lets be honest, you want to do this for footballing reasons dont you? :D Another to get some experience would be to enter tournaments wherever you can afford to go. For example, I played for a local team on Saturdays outside of s...

In the UK on Saturday, I was in my local nike shop, and they had replica balls for £20.00 on the shelves, but in a basket by the exit, they had the official Premier league balls both white, and hi-vis yellow reduced from £110.00 to £10.50!!! :) I couldn't believe it. Kids begging their parents for t...

Re: Nike Mercurial Blade Shinpads

Currently I am using T90 Laser shinpads which pretty much cover a good half of my lower-leg (inconveniently on occasion). Image below: http://www.acasports.co.uk/images/products/full/Nike-T90-Command-2.jpg Considering as we move into Futsal/Off-Season here in Australia, our kit currently utilizes s...

Hi, i'm new here so forgive me for a "late reply". Going to your local shop maybe your best option as somebody has already mentioned. Personally though, I would wait for all the lettering to come off, then get it re-printed. In the UK, any name/number with the official numbering only costs £10.00 so...
