I recently bought a limited ed. soccer cleat (Nike mercurial vapor IX). Unfortunately my size was sold out so I had to buy it in US 11 (instead of 11.5).

I'm determined to see if it's possible to swap the original sole with one that is US 11.5 so that I can wear the cleat comfortably.
I can provide a pair of cleats with the same sole style but in US 11.5 so that their sole removed and used.

Anyone would be able to work this out?


Here's a breakdown of last year model: http://thesevenology.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/nike-mercurial-vapor-8-6-538x540.jpg

and here's videos of how they're put together at the factory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvB68PSefPA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdmdmkKRq_g

Thanks for your time

Had them stretched at a cobbler and switched the insole with a thinner one. Problem solved!
