    Got a pair of these a few months ago.. Normally take a nine, but had to get an eleven to get a fit, well after 3 months I still can't wear them for a whole match or training session without blisters on my heals.. Jaysus, some waste of 200 blips.. Anyone else suffer with them?

    I have bought the control ones which are fine. The flare ones fit less well.

    I use the Malice SG I got about 2 years ago. I think they're similar or the same as the ones you've listed. Took a little while to break them in.

    No issues with sizing and they're a very versatile boot I find.

    Have you high arches or anything? My arches are very high and my foot would move around a lot regardless of lace tightness or boot fit. Once I got insoles it is a much snugger fit

    Are you sure they're not just too big?

    I've found the modern Adidas boots are designed to fit like a glove. They feel a bit weird when you first wear them.

    I'll try a set of insoles, that certainly might help, cheers

    I've been wearing Adidas for years, but havent been wearing preds for a good few seasons, they're defo not too big.. Again, I'd have expected them to be well broken in by now,, but they aren't.. They feel extra stiff.

    The stench of hair clay and skin products is overwhelming in this thread.

    The backs must be talking about fashion again.

    In first year I came into possession of my cousins old steel toe Adidas boots*. Such was the awe of having actual rugby boots, for a time I was made the pack leader until somebody else got boots of their own.

    *The yellow striped ones, no less.
