Nike Land Shark Review
Posted 30 May 2009 - 04:35 PM
Synthetic materials combine to create a great fit while the molded eyelets enhance ankle lockdown for superior support.
New Phylon midsole for enhanced comfort.
New rubber Shark outsole with proven and tested traction elements.
Materials/Craftsmanship - Made of rubber and leather as most cleats are the make up of the cleat is typical Nike.
Ease of use - Well if you do not know how to use shoes yet I guess you should not be reading this review
Looks - This will always depend on the buyer and what they like or dislike. I personally like the aggressive look of the black cleats with the different textured leathers/nylons.
Overall - I just bought these today to break them in for the upcoming game at Battlefront. I expected these to leave blisters on my feet since they were new. To my surprise no blisters. There was some discomfort like you get with wearing a different style shoe than what you are used to. The bite you get with these are top of the line. I climbed up and down the logging toad at MVP and did not slip once, while a guy in front of me fell right on his butt. He was wearing cross trainers. Overall for the first time wearing them (about 6 hours total)I would say they are as comfortable as you can expect for new cleats/shoes. For the $44.95 price tag you cannot go wrong. I went with mids to have the extra ankle support. This I have to rate a 10 as the support was great!

The logging toad is a distant descendant of paul bunyan.

I wore Lansharks for three seasons and agree these are a great shoe for paintball.
After Landsharks I discovered Under Armor Hammer Mids. Also a flexable soled cleat.
And have since moved onto Inov-8 Xtalon 212's....my favorite paintball shoe ever!

but yea, for paintball Im usuing a pair of New balance sneakers.. lol probaly not the best but I like em alot.
Also, nike's insoles are terrible. ( thats just nike,) if you can look into a insole for them, Spenco insoles arnt really that great becuase they will wear down.
There is an insole we have at out store and is avaliable at most sporting good stores. its called Super Feet. they are a hard insole and you can get the athletic support which really makes a difference when your running.
