i have a pair of red predator powerswerves (200$) and i love them.....ive been using my old pair of cleats, (laser 1s) as practice cleats but have outgrown them. SO i need a new pair of practice cleats, im looking at the berry talarias or the Absolion predator powerswerves. These are both like 90$ cleats andi was wondering do you think practicing with a totally different cleat like the talarias would mess me up because the preds are my game cleat???? If you think the talarias will mess me up then ill just get the absolions....Plz help


P.S. are the sizes on PDS "Uk" or "US"??/

yeah I do the same thing with a pair of Vapor III's (white and gold as game cleats) and Veloci's (orange and purple as training)
but I doubt the talaria's would majorly mess you up
but $90 is alot to risk... so if you have never wore vapors before i would get the preds
but on the other hand I really doubt they would make any significant difference

the sizes are in both US and UK

I have 3 pairs of boots;
FG Legend 1 (prac) (FG)
FG Legend 2 (game) (FG)
Laser 1 (SG, both)

I'm buying a new pair of boots for game in SG, Preds or Laser 2 probably unless they start releasing nice SG Vapors or something!

Lol, I take it your parents are buying them :D

yeah go try on the talaria's, if they feel good get em, I'm thinking of getting the pink talaria's instead of marina and volt veloci's

I know that PDS are sponsored and get all their centre built into the big companies (so basically, nike deliver boots through prodirect) soccer.com probably buys them off the companies and thus has to up the price (just a guess)

i tried on the vapor 4's the sl's and the talarias..... suprisingly i thought the talarias were much more comfortable and easier to get into than the vapors...the sl's took about 5 minutes of struggling to get on, but once they were on my feet they felt amazing it felt like another skin....

but i think im gunna get the talarias because i dont have 300$'s on hand.... :? :cry:

PDS is a uk website just to let you know. The prices are in pounds,not dollars. It would cost you a lot once you convert to dollars and shipping.

If you live in the us go with a us site like soccer.com or worldsoccershop.com. It's not cheaper on pds,there different currencies.

Really? That includes shipping to the us? I guess the dollar has improved.

yeh PDS is great. it is cheaper on PDS, look at the top right corner of PDS, you can switch it to $. and its cheaper because us here in the US dont have to pay the VAT tax, and thats usually 30-50 dollars.
