    i had one of the replicas of this boot and i had a major problem with its tongue. it was too big and when i wore it it flapped around sloppily. either its bad design, or its a problem with my foot.

      We have looked at the tongue design for this collection and have made slight changes to the detail, shape etc. The Shinken itself comes with a velcro attachment and is more secure.

    There’s no way I am gonna pay 100pounds for these boots. Those Bio-Panels are just gonna make your feet look so weird when you have both boots on. AND, the soles look so 80’s.

    Seriously good boots. I have played on the wave shinken blue white and they are by far the best boots i have had. Only negative thing is that they didn’t last so long, after 6-8 months all the scubs on the front were gone.

    But they play much better then nikes or adidad. for sure! TOP BOOT!

    Desgin is not my fav, but what does it mather if they play so well ..

    I am interested in purchasing white Morelias, but the very newest model where the sole is blue and the inside of the foot is not red, but grey. Size 28cm, moulded. Please get in touch with me.

    Just bought these and they are awesome. got firm and soft ground pairs for 100 quid. if ur unsure about the fit I would say go half a size down. im a 9.5 in preds but found these fit much better at 9s.

    I bought the wave shinken ii’s a while back. They are extremely comfy and really light so on the gave of it a great boot.however be really careful with the sizing,I’m a uk9.5 normally bought the mizuno 9.5 are much much bigger feeling around the toes,to the point where I got cramping in my toes and arches of my feet.

    I really like the look of the supersonic wave but am now worried about mizunos fit so will maybe get joma total fit.

    I bought the wave shinkens a while back. These boots are really lightweight and comfy although for some reason I get really bad cramps in my toes and eventually my calf. I know cramp can be fitness related but thats not a problem with me. I now think it happens because the insole is so smooth the my toes are not secure in the boot and are moving around too much!!

    Apart from this huge problem they would prob be my favourite ever boots 🙂
