Total 90, they are pretty comfortable. Since goalkeeper stay standing most of the time. If your are into having lightweight everything form your kit to your shin guards i suggest the Mercurial Vapors. They only weigh 7 oz. but people say that they dont provide good support. It all goes down to your needs and wants.

mercurial vapors would be bad for a goalie. too slim. you want something a little larger that will give you a bigger surface to touch the ball with. get sum predators or something in the total 90 series. those are very helpful. or get some pumas. theyre pretty good

Everyone is standing, but he means by the GKP is stationary for most of the game while the other players are moving constantly

Goalkeepers are usually on their toes, and do a lot of lateral movement. Stability is their main concern. As a goalkeeper, you may want to look for a light shoe with good grip and a lot of support surface (wide soles). I don't think that would make an enormous difference in your game, however.

I would get Nike lasers or the total 90 III series with the total 90 series the ankle is really tight on them and work wonders and they are also really comfortable

the supremacys for me were really loose around the ankles and I could never tighten them enough so they were not good for me

the lasers are so comfortable and they have a large area to kick the ball with



I dont see how the best choice for a keeper would be powerswerves... I wore them and t hey are really comfortable but they just dont seem to be a good choice for a keeper

I would go with Pumas...

Post by adfos » 28 Jan 2010, 01:19

I'm a goalkeeper myself. I had a pair of Diadora cleats, they were okay. Kept the water out and the cold... Now I have some Puma's and I won't give you the name because honestly: a.) I don't know it and b.) I'm kind of disappointed with them. It's not that the cleats I have now are so terrible, in fact they've helped me improve my kick a little, it's just that they are so tight and the laces are on the side so It's really hard to get a good amount if tightness. I also had some of the v1.08 pairs, they were okay. But since they're made of fabric mostly, they wear out really easy. I don't know, I think that my kick would remain the same no matter what cleats I got... I am looking into some Pumas right now... I also refuse to wear nike for reasons that will remain unknown to you. Also, I'm kind of limited in respect of my shoe size. I usually can wear a 6 in men's (sometimes a 6.5 but that's pushing it too far often, and sometimes they end up being way to big). And most of the shoes I like start at size 7. Anyone got any good suggestions? I've checked out all of the suggestions on this page already, and they all seem either way too light weight or just plain weird. no offense or anything... but those glove ones have weird grippy stuff.

Peace. Happiness. Soccer.
