These shoes were really cheap, and I used to have a pair of Kelme outdoor cleats when I played in college so I figured I could trust the brand and take a chance on a low price shoe with a good brand name. Turns out the upper materials and colorway are pretty good, as is the sole. These shoes could be really good for futsal if they were just slightly better made, but they basically suck because of a few things that would be simple to fix:
The fit - terrible. All the reviews say it. The sizing is insanely off. I normally wear an 11. I ordered down and got a 10. Still too big, so say hello to blisters when playing.
The upper - nice leather toe box with cool colorway options, contrasted by horrific hard plastic lacing liner. Seriously, it's nice material for your touch and then all of a sudden the area where lacing box meats upper is made of rough cut pointy hard plastic things that actually poke out and make little spikes. I have jabbed my finger just picking these shoes up to throw in my bag or to put on. Ridiculous.
The tongue - crap. The tongue is poorly sized and not wide enough. It ends up sagging down to one side and constantly needs to be pulled up straight again. It is also too narrow and can leave gaps exposing top of your foot a little bit.
Arch support - not enough. I know everyone has different feet shape, but really these shoes made my feet ache far more than any other soccer shoes I own - and I have been through many of various style and brand over the years.
Wanted to love these shoes - cheap and cool looking with an indie brand to set you apart - but unless you are really on a budget I would not recommend them unfortunately. Just do yourself a favor and find a highly rated nike, adidas or puma shoe. The quality speaks for itself.
