Review: Nike Air Legend II FG

So, the LDSM family needed some new soccer cleats (don't we always?) And the people at were kind enough to send me a gift certificate, so that I could check out their products. What I ended up ordering were these Nike soccer shoes. They were a great price, easy to order, and best of all, there was FREE UPS shipping. I had no problems with payment, and when I did have a rough spot entering the gift certificate, customer service got back to me almost immediately by email to solve the problem (which turned out to be user error on my end.)

To the left is a shot (thanks, wjarrettc) of my kid wearing the cleats last weekend during a PDL game. He's very happy with them, which thrills me, because he used to be Mr. "I-need-the-most-expensive-boots-money-can-buy" boy, the more brightly colored the better. Seeing him wear a classic black shoe is kind of nice. The Nike Air Legend II FG's are a sharp-looking all-black boot, and he says they fit well. They're made of kangaroo leather and seem to be holding up to near-daily training sessions and games. So far so good. If we need cleats in the future (and I'm sure we will), I'll be sure to check out because I appreciated their fast shipping and good customer service.

(So, to be clear, I did receive something for writing this post, but I like the shoes, my son does as well, and I'm happy with the company I ordered them from, and would do so again.)

OMG I need one of these shirts

And you do, too! How did I not think of this first? :) Or maybe that should be :( .
Anyway, they are here. Buy one.

(Update 5/30/09: I got mine in the mail, even though they sent me a gray one. I'm wearing it out to do errands today; I'll let you know if I get any comments...)
