"After 5 days of sheer confusion, with every website on the planet telling a different story, we received further communique from the US brand this afternoon stating the facts over their new release. Here’s some of what they had to say:

Quote It is clear there was some confusion on the exact specifications of the new Mercurial Vapor VI due to the conflicting images in the marketplace. One thing is certain; like all Vapors before it, this new boot was designed and engineered with some of the fastest players in the world and continues to push the boundaries of innovation, whilst remaining incredibly light and responsive. These are definitely among Nike’s most advanced products to date and are built to assist explosive acceleration.

It seems that different prototype samples were shot; one with Adaptive Traction and the other with a Flywire upper.

Vapor VI

Bottom Line: No Flywire, No NikeSense Stud. I bet some of you wish Nike had stuck with the last two prototypes, don’t you?!"
Sucks for Vapor owners. The NikeSense, actually (and mostlikely) the new stud layout give way more traction on my accelerating steps. Huge amounts of traction are available during cuts and turns on the toes.

The whole flywire thing, just seems like its a thinner material, but the flywire keeps it from ripping apart. Which is the whole point if I'm not mistaken. As for the whole transfer of energy due to the Tepex Carbon fiber sole plate, thats a bunch of crap, well for humans anyways...The whatever percent increase in energy transfer from the human foot thru the carbon fiber and into the ground is not nearly enough for a noticeable change. Carbon fiber makes all the difference though when it comes to race cars and space shuttles and jets and stuff like that though. Obviously...

Hi. I've just bought some new t90 strikes iii's but they split just where the laces start so I'm going to yet return them. But I'm thinking of going for some mercurial VI glides instead. What do you guys think?

to Cuda:
yea the insoles are supposed to be red, also i compared the tongue to the pictures on prodirect of this superfly and the one you posted seems to be shinier than the one on prodirect and the nike swoosh is smaller. also if you look at the heel those black ovals arent supposed to be there plus the shape looks a little of to me, idk if theyre used or not.
hope i helped

Yeah, SoccerBible has some great info on them.

http://www.soccerbible.com/news/footbal ... boots.aspx

you can select the individual boot to get more specs like the % of weight reduction compared to the original and expected price. I know the CTR's are 225 GBP, SuperFly II's are 275 GBP, Laser III's at 250 GBP, and Tiempo's at 215 GBP if that helps. If you ask me, they are sooooo overpriced. I mean, the CTR360's elites will be just under 8 ounces, but the originals are 9.8 ounces. $350 for 1.8 less ounces vs. $180(you can get for around $150 most places now) for 9.8 ounces. Just wait for the Adizero to compare side to side. At $200, it'll be hard to ignore 5.8 ounces AND leather.

Just oredered some Vapor IV charcoal/orange in soft ground from PDS to go along side my laser I. I have only wore leather boots before, is there anything I should expect? I have heard things about blistering during the break in?

blisters used to happen in my most recent pair i didn't get any at all while breaking them in. Obviously just don't try and play a 2 hour match without playing in them maybe 30-45 a day first.

just got a new pair of nike tiempos, their simple and the best pair of boots ive ever owned. I had adidas predators and the synthetic leather was very uncomfortable although they had a good touch. These tiempos are the sh*t!
