Sick colour scheme, I only wish they could stay white forever.

Got them from ebay. Yeah they're the mercurial vapor IV SL ice/blue.
Unfortunately they're a size too big (US 10) so i'm looking to sell them.

I really like them. It's the first synthetic upper shoe I can honestly say I've enjoyed. They are super comfortable and are really good in wet conditions. The sole plate is really nice and the low toe box makes chips and lobs very easy. I was going to get the elite's but these damn things don't show any wear on them at all haha. I'd feel bad having the same shoe with just 2 ounces difference, which I won't really notice for that crazy premium($300 for Elite's vs. the $140 I paid for my CTR's). I have some Mizuno Wave Ignite's on the way(synthetic version of the Wave Ignitus K-leather) so I'll try to post those when I get them in.

Fawver, nice Vapor VI!
I was looking to get that same color but I have a few questions...

Are they comfortable after breaking in or do you still get blisters after long-periods of use. I don't want to have to two sock. Also, how do they fit in comparison with your other boots (sizing wise), for me, I fit perfectly in a 9.5 for Vapor IV, 9.5 is a tad bit small for Vapor V (They should have a 9.75 lol), and 10 is a tad bit too big for me in the F50i's.

i LOVE my CTR360s.

i have vapor VIs too, and even after wearing them regularly for a month, i still get pain on the outside of my left pinky toe. its annoying as sh*t. when it happens i usually just switch into my CTRs.

I love CTR's aswell. I was wearing a prototype size 9 in vapor VI and they were hella tight, I had to take them off after 30 mins each session (toes scrunching up almost) and it hurt like hell to take laces shots... almost as if I was kicking them barefoot. Hopefully they fixed these problems in the retail version as I am really keen on getting the cool mint ones... No one has complained about the shooting pain, and hopefully a half size up will solve my problem with the toebox.

I have only used them once when it was very wet.. but I did not get any blisters the sole plate is very big to me ( like wide ) and flat but I think after breaking them in they are good. I feel like they run a little bit big . I bought a 9 and they feel like maybe a 9.5. The f50 I have never worn, so I could not tell you much about them besides me walking around in the house and they are very very soft and feel light.

Got these in this morning. What a beast of a boot and I'm in love just after playing a couple hours in them today.
