I really liked these cleats. They are soft, well-made and reasonably priced for the quality. However, be careful on the sizing. I wear an 8.5 (occasionally 9 in Nike running shoes) in woman's shoes and based on some reviews I sized down 1/2 size and got a 7 Mens. It was too small. While I am sure the kangaroo leather will stretch, the length will not. My toes were already touching the front of the sneaker. I found the width normal. I ended up returning and buying the woman's version Maracana MD PU in size 9 which was a perfect fit for me.

Bummer - I have had the shoe for about three weeks now and it has already ripped along the outside of the right boot.

Great shoe, good cleat pattern. The kangaroo leather stretches just enough to conform to your foot. The elastic that fits over the shoelace cover came off within the first 30 minutes of real wear, a worthless option. The exceptionally long shoelaces allow me to tie my shoes, cover with the flap and then loop under my foot, and tie over the top the flap. This works fairly well. Definitely an improvement over the Nike and Adidas shoes I have tried in the past!

WOW!! Not only were the shoes by far the lowest price that I was able to find (and I searched quite a bit!), but I received them the very next day after I placed my order...with FREE shipping! I was very impressed and I will always search Zappos first before looking anywhere else!

Seems like a solid purchase - This shoe seems to have many of the perks of more expensive shoes at a fraction of the cost: soft K-leather offset lacing, light weight, tongue strap. I generally play defense, so my only concern is that my feet may get more easily smashed giving how soft the leather is and how light they are. They've been ok in that regard so far, and have felt amazing when playing midfield or forward. The real question is how long they last. The $60-75 ones I used to buy never lasted more than one year (if that long); I'm hoping these go for a few years.

Narrower than other Diadora - This is the second pair of Diadoras I've purchased. The first had a perfect fit. This one is narrower and was too tight. I had to return it.

These are really nice boots, but are a little wider in the heel than the Diadoras I am used to, so I had some heel slippage. I wore the Diadora Brasil Classico for years, and these are definitely overall a bit nicer.

Great shoe for the money - Of course we love the free shipping, since this is the 3rd soccer shoe we ordered. This shoe is comfortable. My son likes the hidden laces. Only con is that the laces that come with it are extremely long, even to do the wrap around tie. We just replaced them.

Love this boot. Nice soft leather, and great touch. Extremely comfortable, and fits my wide foot very comfortably. Very true to size. Removable insole is a good feature too.

I just started training outdoors for the season and so far loving these cleats. Fit is snug in the heel and wide in the toes. These have removable insoles if you have your own. I’ve always had problems finding soccer shoes that fit well because of different size feet and wide toes. These are very light, comfortable and provide a good feel for the ball. Also I haven’t had the usual pain making the transition to a new pair of cleats. I usually wear a 9 but sometimes fit a 9.5; with these the 9 was a bit short in the length.

This is my fourth pair of Diadora Maracana's and for the quality and price they can't be beat. I also think this cleats pattern works better with lateral cutting than your standard cone shaped cleat. I highly recommend this cleat to everyone. I still have my first pair as a backup and they have made it through almost 3 seasons.

I bought these for my 10 year son, who has wide feet and has been playing soccer for 6 years. He says these are the most comfortable soccer cleats he has owned - they do not hurt his feet. When he outgrows these we will definitely be purchasing another pair of the Diadora Maracana RTX 12!

These are the best shoes that I have ever owned and I am not just saying that! I am fully torqued that I got these bad boys. They are so comfortable and light. They truly fit like a glove and I find, like other reviews, that the shoes honestly feel like a sock they fit so true. I pity the fool who does not grab these shoes. Plus for this price they are an absolute steal compared to Adidas Predators and Nikes.

Finally found a good soccer boot! I have wide feet and have been playing soccer for 20+ years. Unfortunately most companies have been making cleats for the ridiculously narrow footed. I highly suggest ordering this shoe a full size larger if you wear a wide normal shoe. Excellent value for the price (I got it at a 25% reduction.) Even performs well on harder ground due to the lower profile studs. Would definitely buy again.

Really like this pair of boots. They're comfortable, light and form fitting. Studs layout on the bottom provide good traction and the kangaroo leather uppers provide good ball control.

I got these for Ultimate - I also ordered a pair of women's Mizuno 9-spike watley G3 switch cleats (9 and 9.5) and the Adidas predator cleat (M 7 and 7.5). I'd previously swapped between a 7 and 7.5 men's Adidas, and wear a women's 9 Mizuno running shoe. I liked the feel of the diadora cleat over the Adidas - it was a softer feeling leather and fit my foot better. My heels stick out a bit too so I don't like cleats that come up too high in the back. These cleats fit well for that. They also didn't require much breaking in, and they stretch a lot. I thought the 7s would be too small (they were tight). My big toe was right near the end, but they stretched out quickly. I like that the laces are long enough to tie around your feet twice to secure your foot better too - I tend to cut hard and slide a bit even in a snug shoe. Another benefit is that the footbed can come out. I have insoles, so I can put them in these cleats whereas the Adidas soles are molded to the footbed so you're out of luck if you want the flexibility to put insoles in your cleats or not. If you buy these cleats, buy them pretty snug!

Extremely comfortable and stable shoe. The stock insoles contour well to my feet. These have a broader base than Pumas, so you don't feel like you're wearing ice skates.

I have been wearing these on artificial turf indoors all winter - very comfortable, lightweight, great feel on the ball. Only downside - laces are 12" longer than they need to be.

I play at least twice weekly year round in men's leagues. Very soft leather. So far, the boots have molded quickly and required no break in period. The biggest problem is that the synthetic turf wears the outside edges of this shoe more quickly than I would like.

BEWARE! The size 11 fit me perfectly, but since it was kangaroo leather, I thought to get a half size smaller. It was very tight at the beginning, but after 45 minutes of playing, it had stretched out. After 7 months, I almost wonder if I should've gotten a full size smaller, as the shoes have stretched considerably, but likely the length of the shoe would've been too short. I didn't mind that the Diadora logos on the sides of the shoes broke off and came unstitched in several spots after a couple months of play. Performance and integrity of the shoe is still good.
