Lightweight. Good looking. You get a good close contact with the ball.
Not great for people with broad feet. They really rub on the heels. Because they are thin material, you can end up injured easily going for tackles.
I bought a pair of Nike Vapour FG (Burnt Orange) about 4 months ago, since then they have given me awful blisters on my feet, not just the heels but also on the sole of my feet. They rub constantly which can be very painful. I find myself having to put tape on the areas that rub to stop any friction. The boots are made from a very thin material and when you go in for a tackle on someone with studs, you're sure to come out with a slight niggle/injury. Having given the bad points the boots are lovely looking, lightweight and agile. I find myself able to kick the ball harder and further than my old Preds. I would and wouldn't recommend these boots, it depends on what you like yourself. I still wear my Nike Vapours but I don't play in them unless I have tape on the areas that rub constantly. I forgot to mention they are quite expensive. If you are going to buy your first pair of Vapours I would recommend that you go for a sale price rather than the full whack, just to realise what the boots are like. Hope this is helpful advice.
