I like the vapours looks more, but I am afraid ill get blisters cos i got them with my last pair of vapour IIIs so I think adiPURES will be more pratical, but I just love the vapours!
Blisters is the main issue that can't decide with, has many people had them with the new vapours ?

those ones

Well ive played with them twice and got about 3 or 4 blisters, 2 are really deep cuts, the other 2 are on my heel, and dont bother me. There going away fast though. After the blister period there a dream though.

Yeah I just experienced the blister period today after I played a full match. But my blisters aren't bad and they are getting better now. The boots fit very well on my feet and I get a good striking surface with the lace cover.

I am going to my local store on monday to check out some boots and I have narrowed it down to the euro E8 vapors and the lesser known Puma Konstrukt II. Anyways what do you think I should get, could you list the pros and the cons. I am a striker for my club and highschool team.

Here are the links

I have the puma V konstrukts and for me I do not really like them they seem really wide and I can never get my tongue to stay down. The sizing for pumas are also different to but since you are going to the store it won't matter. They are really padded though and comfortable

What position do you play? The pumas are really to thin for anything besides a striker/GK. But I do believe because they are so thin and light they are the best cleat for strikers. The feel you get for the ball is great and the cuts are even greater. Plus you get a sock like feel for when you shoot the ball.

But if you arent a striker or GK, I would go with the Euro Vapors. They are more durable and you will have a less likely chance to be injured in them.
I play anywhere in the midfield. I really prefer something light thats why these are my 2 choices.

okay so i'll be needing some indoor boots soon, and i wanted to get the adipures , but right now they only have black, white , and the rave green ones...i wanted the blue ones...i can get the blue telstars (full grain leather), but i really want the k leather on the adipures...my other options are...
f30.8 indoor, with microfiber top(assuming it's same as the microfiber on FG tunits and FG powerswerves)
Image
and

AZCII, with KNG75 upper(same as on FG talarias)
Image

these are blue telstars btw(and taht's what blue adipures will look like, except these have full grain leather...
Image

and if it helps, i'm not really worried about the weight, besides, they're all in the 10 oz. range, which is perfect...but i really want to know about the feel u get with the KNG75(in talarias) and microfiber(same as FG tunits or FG predators)

so if u had any experiences with these materials...ur opinions are appreciated
p.s. i know i'm choosy, but any help is appreciated... :D
