I bought a pair of Nike Mercurial Vapors (soccer cleats) for $150.00 for my son for the 2012 soccer season. They are a piece of ***.
The cleat part at the heal broke in 2 places. I bought them for the school soccer season (25 games, average 3 games a week) and they broke before the 18th game. He only used them for the school games and practice.
The fields my son played on were very nice turf fields so bad field condition can be eliminated at the cause for cleat failure. This cleats are Total junk..Stay away from Nike cleats, terrible design.
