Great pair of football boots.
Not much to put here.
Like any boots there was slight rubbing during the "breaking in stage" but this went after some light training.
My only real problem is its very easy to brake the fragile bones in your feet (top bones, Metatarsals, cuneiforms and tarsal - metatarsal joints) Due to that tight wrapping these boots give you, you do run the risk of some pretty painful stamps! but I'm sure all us wingers are used to that!
Anyway - My overall view on these boots is "magnificent".
I'm a very very keen athlete, I do track running to a high standard and do the 100mtr sprint in 10.8secs pb and I'm pretty steady around the 11 second mark, I play semi pro footy and these Nike Mercurial Vapor III FG football boots really have given me an edge. They're so lightweight it's like running in a track spike. What I love the most apart from the tight wrap around that it gives you is the way they maintain there shape after use. It's almost like wearing a gum shield it tends to adapt to its owner! Although light weight, Nike have made sure the inner sole is comfy and accessible with some tremendous support around the heal. I feel as though due to the narrowness and tight fight it's also very easy to manoeuvre and change direction at speed as well as being to generate high powered strikes!
