Shoes Mizuno 9-spike blast
I need new pair of shoes. I like mid-high, without high cleats, do to ankle injury. I have seen the Mizuno 9-spike blasts and they look great. What is your recommendaton and where to buy online?

No recommendation for any brand but Tanel has a great sale going on now. From 29 up.
Maybe the link to the right of here will go to it.
I got an email from them and a player from here about the same time they started the sale.

The Boombah mid is a very comfortable shoe. I've got two pair of low cuts and 1 of the mid and they are like running on pillows!

Noticed two different 9 spike shoe types in a 9 spike search. One looked like a turf shoe and the other more like a football shoe.
Last pair of Mizuno's I had, tore at the seam where the shoe met the sole after about 1.5 years.
Boombah did have a sale earlier, perhaps they still have some left you would be interested in.

Mizuno blast are the best shoes I have ever worn. Good support, long lasting and very comfortable.

Loved Mizuno and wore them for years. Then they changed the last and didn't fit as well. Then they lowered the ankle height and don't support as well. Switched to Tanel and they have worn better than Mizuno. What I liked about the Mizuno 9-spike was the support on the edge (at least as it was configured 4 years ago before they changed).

A shame. Local sports store told me a couple of years ago that he had gotten many complaints over the change which he forwarded to Mizuno with no response. He also told me his sales had dropped for this shoe since the change. Maybe because about 300 senior players live within shopping distance of his store and we liked the extra ankle support.

I purchased some Boombah Torfs about a year ago and the sole started to seperate from the shoe. It was a a defect in matrial and mabey workmanship and I was told to just buy the newer modle that they were better. They had no intrest in backing up thier product and all I can say is buyer be ware.

I've been wearing 3n2's for the last 5 or 6 years. Great shoe, especially if you need width.
