Soaking synthetic leather or leather boots is a bad idea. When i had my first pair of boots, i did that and they gave way real quick.

When you wash your boots, a common mistake pple did was to sun it. I would think air dry is better. if need be, use a hair dryer to dry it.

I find this to be a pretty useful tips. Having not own a pair of soccer boots for a while, i do have leather shoes which i gave similar type of care to maintain them.

aiyoyoy amma!!! dun ever do that..

if u soak the entire thing for a couple of hours.. water will in through all parts of ur boot.. the glue which holds ur sole to the upper part will not be as strong and give way faster..

why they put in water is to make the upper more soft and easier to 'season' or break in ur boots..

but u what u do is u wear ur boots and soak the entire thing in a pail for 20 mins max. then just walk around in it until it roughly dries.. tats enough..

NEVER SUN DRY. just put in ur room or some place airy but not in the sun. cos if it too dry, there will lots of contraction.. and this repeated process will cos ur boot to tear and break much easier..

Can really feel the ball when you wear a pair of adiPure. I personally feel that it allows me to judge the weight of my passes better
