  1. As I mentioned in my Kaliaaer glove thread had a couple of pre season training sessions. Been doing alright but taken a bang at Thursday kick about and think I have bruised ribs so will see how it goes, and maybe take it easy next week. So so sore this afternoon. 😩

    The more I use these gloves the more impressed I am with them. Had a bit of a light shower before and during training today and the grip holds up well, probably better in the damp actually. And the shot absorption is top notch too. Made a few smart stops today but couldn't go 100% as took a heavy bang on Thursday at my indoor football I sometimes go to and I think I might have bruised ribs as my whole side hurts from my front, round the side and into my back and shoulder, it was almost impossible to breath earlier. Anyway the gloves are amazing! Strongly recommend thus far.

    Yeah I did see they had them back in stock. Got enough gloves for now but did buy the Glove bag, wash and towel set as I needed glove wash anyway and some div from another team broke the string on my towel thing last season too.

    Probably a bit of sweat and dirt in the gloves, but from the wash water it looks like quite a bit of chemical still coming out too.

    Wore the black ones at training today. I definitely need to pre wash them again, solid enough but felt they were a bit slippy still on the palm and didn't clutch a few balls as well as I would like. Dragged them along the ground a couple of times and was surprised there wasn't a mark on them, really good solid palm, but then I am used to that from Kaliaaer from previous gloves I have used. The gloves feel a bit bulky I have to say, I'm not a particularly bulky glove kind of keeper (literally never wear FP gloves for that reason!), but not an issue, the gloves feel soft inside which is nice, the wrist on these in a size 8 is a little looser than I would like even with tubigrip on my wrists, I had to really tighten them hard, but no major issues and I did make a couple of smart low stops which I think was helped by how solidly they held my wrists. Really impressed for the first use and I will give these a wash a bit later when I can be bothered. Will be intrigued to see how the size 7 ones I have compare as I say the 8 are a little bulkier than I would usually go for.
  6. Nice little session today just to get as much of the squad together and get back kicking a ball. Wasn't too serious, but a loosened really and I kind of needed it, even though I try to play indoors in the week I certainly felt quite stiff today, and my ankle has been playing up recently after I jarred it about a month ago, plus for about the last 2 months I have had problems with my plantar fascia in my foot. Made a few saves but was slow on a few shots too, but first week back and that. Was good for using my feet though as we done 5 v 5. Shame not the whole team could get together but it was undertaken in a good spirit and a solid hour and a half work out to blow off some of the cob webs. We are in Division 6 this season, the League goes from Premier Division to Division 9, so we are roughly where we were last season, but as the league have put us in the Surrey Junor Cup rather than the Surrey Lower Junior Cup I guess it is kind of a Promotion. Cannot wait to get going properly now and to get loosened up and ready for the season ahead.

    Yeah the fingers fit fine, actually quite stumpy I thought but no movement issues. The length of the glove is fine. The base of the palm is a bit wider than I would prefer but not stupid like on the Lite model. Wrist is ok but I do have to pull the strap as tight as it will go, which I don't on the 7s.
  8. Kaliaaer XLR8AER

    Picked up the Black ones this morning and classic scenario with me. They fit alright but the wrist is a bit big on me so I will probably have to use tubigrip. Probably not helped that I have been losing weight for the new season. So basically really I am a 7.5 but Kaliaaer much like The One Glove and a few other brands either do 7s or 8s but no half size between. Will pre wash these later and give them a work over during pre season.
  9. Kaliaaer XLR8AER

    Not used them yet as not been playing, although tried them on. They are a bit snug in a 7 but nothing that requires concern. I have ordered the Black pair in a size 8 for comparison as the palm might fit better, just want to see how the wrist comes up for size as the one on the Lite as you know is a major flaw. Will report back when the Black ones arrive.
  10. Kaliaaer XLR8AER

    I had an issue with an old pair of Kaliaaer's years ago where the inner lining came away from the palm. Wasn't major but it used to bunch up on my fingers.

  12. They do. But you can still buy the tpu ones, but they only fit Adidas boots.
  13. Not too sure. They used to sell them everywhere but they are a struggle now. Thankfully Adidas give you metal and tpu studs still. I thought one of our lads had some last season but turns out they still had metal tips.
  14. They are absolutely beautiful boots, and I have heard only good things about Mizuno. Like I say when they drop in price I may revisit it, but I need some training gear and both pairs of trainers I currently have are knackered so had to prioritise for now.
  15. Yeah that's the one. I decided not to get the Mizuno boots for now. I might revisit them when they drop in price, but I have the Silver Adidas Predators and I also have my Adidas X 19s that I have only worn twice too, plus I needed some exercise / running gear so thought the money could be better spent elsewhere (oh and the new England ODI cricket shirt!).
