Make sure you add cleaning methods, cause I can't find a way to get that stuff that Ballack recommended.

Thats a shame, you tried supermarkets and drugstores? it really works, keep a lookout for it.

Well, I have the Supremacy's(higher end, more expensive version of the Supremes) in the colorway that you posted second and I have the Strikes in the same colorway as you posted first, and I'd have to say that I like the Strikes alot better. They're more alot comfortable and the Supremeacy's gave me lots of blisters, so I quit wearing them. But other than that, they're basically the same boot.

So I'd def. say the get strikes. I like them 100x better than my Supremacy's because of comfort.

Predators, Adipures and Tiempo Ronaldinho's are probably suited for those positions.

Beckham Preds vs F50.7

Post by bluerobben » 28 Jun 2008, 02:20

I'm new to this forum and I'd like to ask for some help. I have around $150 to spend on new boots. I live in Canada so around $35 will be consumed by the shipping/duty when i order online (though its still cheaper to buy online than in Canadian shops). I guess my only options are synthetic predator absolutes or the f50.7. The umbro kangaroo boots I had didn't last too long so I'm gonna stick to microfiber for durability, which is the most important factor. I would like to hear some of your experiences with those boots. poor touch with the beckham preds? losing studs with the f50. Cheers :)

Hi bluerobben, I am in the same position, Im from canada so I have to take shipping into consideration. I just bought the nike euro edition strikes for $140 shipped. I recommend the strikes, very comfortable, well positioned blades, and good touch.

also, try http://www.kitbag.com or http://www.soccercorner.com I've ordered from both and been very happy with service to Canada.

Puma V1.08's
or
Euro vapors
I tried them both on and they were really nice. Im kinda leaning toward the euro vapors though.
