I don't think your accustomed to your cleats... so the answer is just to spend as much time in them as possible, that includes traning, are they 'knocked in properly', ect. just the basics, juggling helps as w3ell

I think I'm suffering from the same problem that panchester07 has (cheers for the replies to my injury/stress thread both of you btw), when I'm in my asics sneakers I'm in a world of my own, absolutely carving up, so-to-speak.

However, once I pop the predators on, my touch is clunky, and I can't perform stepovers or retain accuracy as well as I'd like. I wore them for a week at a football camp for about 6 hours every day, shouldn't they be worn in by now?

The trouble these predators have caused me has led me to looking for other "comfortable" boots which hopefully will provide a greater feel for the ball, such as Air Legend II's or Adipures..

the best thing to do, is try to do some juggling and stuff like that with your cleats, so you can become familiar with them, i did that and my play with my outdoor boots improved no end. Im not really accustomed to them now because i havent played a match for about a month now, but i will get familiar with them again soon im sure :)

Yeah I think it's the nails(sorry I dun noe the word) under the Predators that makes the prob. Me uncle gave me a pair of Preds Absolute, I made a cut, and sprained my ankle.Personally think it's not so good for dribbling and changes of direction. Do y'all noe any good boots for dribbling?
