I can't believe it. 100 less than the asking price that's amazing, eastbay have made stuff on sale right now. Man these stores are going crazy, I stopped by Sports Authority and they had 70% off most of their shoes.

Yeah, it'll come to about 60 pounds including shipping, which is still pretty good.

For 60? I got them for free! That was just connections and good timing.

I got them for $70, bag and all. Find the nearest idiot who gets new boots every season and doesn't play hard in his old ones, and buy them off him. Works a charm

Yes Haven't you heard about the welcoming Porsche? I guess not...

I suppose EastBay is a good resource for football goods, but for me, I always try to find an in-town store to see if they have it. We have one in SPFD called Bus's and they have Vapours and Pulse's new for $30 and $40 off of normal price, so that's always nice.

Look that way when you're looking for a hot off the line boot.

Well like Gio said, find someone who buys nice boots every season and hardly uses them. I got mine off of this kid who wore his maybe five times and decided he wanted a new pair. They were supposed to cost me $35 but I didn't pay him and he was cool about it and just let me have them for free.

Or....steal them, that is your second best option :thmbup:

Although you did get a kick in the balls Craig.

I recommend you don't buy Vapours at all, come to think of it. They've been out a while now, and with prices dropping...there'll be a new version coming out soon.

If you're going to bust out the big bucks, wait and get the best, newest pair, at least.

I really wished there were more Canadian sports stores that carried Vapors ...

I'd got the Red ones and Blue ones, but Orange? Hmmm ... I might have to go for it ....

So good they named him twice. Augustine 'Jay-Jay' Okocha is considered to be one of the most skilled players that the English Premier League has to offer. With his dazzling tricks, blazing speed, and rocket of a shot, he is a deadly presence on the pitch. Captaining both club and country by his "lead by example" type of play, any club would be more than eager to sign the Nigerian wizard.

The Orange ones are fairly old, much older than the red or blue. So if you didn't used to have them, then it is fairly unlikely you will now.

I am so undecided about the vapor's. I had a pair and there still in excellent condition. One minute they will seem excellent for some stuff, and not for other stuff.

Vapours are not suited for players who are central.

For Wide men and strikers their supposidly very good.

first of all, that's vapor I. Second of all, it's out of stock, third of all, it's orange!

The best thing you can do, is wait for online discounts from footlocker 30% off. Then buy 2 pairs and then refund one pair. You pay the 30% but the idiots from FL will give you a full refund, i've tried it many many times.

That's how i bought my vapors for like $60 bucks.
HAHAHAH

I was in limbo between the Air Zoom Total 90 III, and the Vapor's. I am so glad I went for the Vapor's.

I feel much lighter and better in control when dribbling with the ball, also the shooting and first-touch feels nice. I would recommend them for wingers/forwards. Mine cost £110:

they are light, can't argue with that.

but make sure they would fit your feet, it has a slim body that not everyone can adjust to.

also, i would recommend people to buy half a size larger than they usually do. I usually wear a 9 and sometimes even 8.5, but my size 9 vapor is almost exactly the same size as my foot. About 45 minutes into the game, you would have pain on your toes.

Another thing, make sure you tape up your heel nice and firm. The plastic heel on the shoe would give you great great cuts and blisters, so bad that you basically can't walk untill the skin grows back.


I dont know if that's the issue wth other people. But i certainly had these problems to this day.

I had blisters in the first week but there okay now. I tend to wear a standard pair of socks, then my football boots.

I am happy with them, they feel nice and tight to my foot, (without being too-tight). I like playing bare-foot, and that's the closest to it .
