If you have either shoes, tell me if they are good, or how durable they are.
Thank you. :D :) :o :lol: 8) :P :wink:

total 90 laser vs total 90 laser 2

Post by dreamer » 05 Oct 2008, 17:59

i just bought a pair of copa mundial but like to get the total 90 laser as well. i worn a pair of air zoom total 90 III and it served me very well, good boots for wide feet like mine.

I think nike over did laser 2.. i feel the rubber part covering above the laces sticks out like a sore thumb. there are so many ridges.... and what is with the zagged studs?

what do you guys think about the total 90 laser vs total 90 laser 2?

Never wore Nike before I got the Laser II white recently.
Like you said, they feel nice for wide foot. Worn it twice just kicking around the ball and its great. Don't feel like the shotshield 'rubber part covering above laces' actually the laces aren't under it and go around the sides.
Well have to admit they don't serve a major purpose, to me, but they do look SO FREAKING AWESOME, to me! :D :D :D

If you want to get laser, definitely get the II :)
Laser I's are so 2007 :P

Depends.
I say, F50, but thats my opinion.
First, wear them both and see which fits better. Run and kick around in them.
If they both seem the same, check your touches with each.
Then look at the price @_@.
Still cant pick? Think beyond that.
If your super duper fast, and you want that "slight" upper edge then think of Vapor. They do feel like your wearing socks.
F50's are still meant for speed but then again might give you less blisters. And personally, I think they look better. I bought a premium set of F50.8's (3 Chassis, 2 Insoles, 2 Liners, 3 Studs) and love that I have one for practice, and 2 for my jerseys.

Messi's just as fast as Ronaldo, with heavier shoes. Try them both. :P

p.s not hating on ronaldo.
p.s.s as a striker myself, and seeing others, the strike with F50s is slighty stronger (Due to a harder surface then vapor). but only SLIGHYT

Right, boys I need a new pair of boots.

Green and black kit, so nothing red or something ;p
Soft ground
NIKE (Adidas don't suit my feet shape, last time i had them they screwed my foot up)
Only real specification. Lasers, Vapors, Legends, aslong as they are SG. Not sure what to get.

Oh yeah; I now play central midfield as I didn't like CB as my old team were sh!te and my new team desperately need a CM. I have a good passing range, a great shot and good stamina, so I need boots that kinda go with these things aswell. Lasers seem like the best choice TBH!

I'm stuck between:

Adidas F50.9 Black or Nike Total 90 Laser II White

I play on astro turf but I have had a few problems with my previous F50s and don't no whether to keep giving them a chance or convert to lasers. The only problem is that I would have to screw out the SG studs on the lasers and put in some moulds but whether that is possible and would get the best out of the boot I don't know, the tunits HG are for 3G.

Any opinions are greatly appreciated!

Try the Legend and Lasers, see what you like best. Vapors should be out of the question really.
