The Nike Mercurial Miracle is a boot that offers a very competitive alternative for those who decide not to invest big bucks in the Superfly II. Just like its predecessor the Talaria, the Miracle is third in the Mercurial range behind the Superfly II and Vapor VI. But if you …

Umbro Stealth Pro Review

The release of the Umbro Stealth Pro has had one of the most bizarre advertising campaigns in recent memory! “Are you Fox or Chicken?” reads the headline, followed by guys running a round a field in masks with feathers flying about the place. Strange, odd, confusing. But, once you get …

Uhlsport Kickschuh Instinkt Review

I have to admit that reviewing the Uhlsport Kickschuh Instinkt has been one of the more interesting reviews I have done. This is primarily because I have always known Uhlsport to be one of the top companies in goalkeeper apparel, rather than outfield gear like soccer cleats. It was Chivas …

Joma Total Fit football boot

Joma has created something quiet unique with the Total Fit by simply going back to the basics of creating a classic soccer cleat. At first glance, the Total Fit looks like a pretty simple cleat, very plain and ordinary – without any added elements. But the fact that they are …

Lotto Stadio Primato Review

Unless you have personally worn a pair of Lotto Stadio Primato, you will be surprised to hear how under-rated these cleats are! I wore Lotto boots in college, but I had only used the Zhero range. The Stadio range is completely different; they hold a timeless, classic look and are made of a …
