Under Armour Soflo Low MC - Men's
Get your flow going on the field with the Under Armour SoFlo MC football cleat. This football shoe has been designed for the needs of the fastest players on the field, like Devin Hester. The engineered synthetic upper has a fast look that also provides great support and lightweight performance. Strategic ventilation built into the cleat maximizes breathability, while a moisture managing liner keeps the ice water in your veins during the heat of the game. Internal nylon reinforcement provides lightweight stability and support. The Pebax outsole is lightweight, strong and gives you excellent traction and the proper mid-foot rigidity and forefoot flexibility. Secondary cleats offer traction for game-breaking lateral moves and explosive traction. The real playmakers have the flow on the field. Let your game flow in the Under Armour SoFlo MC. Wt. 10.0 oz.

These cleats are very close to excellence, but not quite there. They do a bunch of things well, but nothing superbly.
First off, the cleat pattern is very good, but not the best. They are edged out by the Nike Speed TD and Vapor Jet 4.2, which offer slightly better grip and a slightly lower to the ground, more balanced feel. The SoFlos might be a tad better on wetter/softer ground, but if you play in a variety of conditions, the Nikes will be better in more of them.
Sizing is a bit tricky. They are a bit lower around the ankle than I would like, which made size 8.5 a bit too big for me (too much heel slipping). Moving down to size 8 fixed that problem, but over the past several months the tightness in the toes has started to give me a lot of pain in the forefoot after weekend-long tournaments (I am a competitive ultimate frisbee player), and it's gotten especially worse in the last few weeks, to the point where I'm back to using my Nike Speed TDs (which were previously giving me arch pain). So your mileage may vary. If the SoFlos fit you, great. If you have the issues I was having you may want to look somewhere else.
One other thing to note is that the SoFlos have a unique "footsleeve" style design rather than a traditional tongue like normal shoes have. I can imagine this being annoying or troublesome for some, but it works fine for me, so I don't really have any complaints.
The cleats' overall construction is a little on the stiff side, which makes them less comfortable than Speed TDs. If the next generation of Under Armour cleats fixes this, I think it'll go a long way towards solving the fit and comfort issues. They have a good thing going with their cleat pattern, so I'm excited to see what they come out with next.
Pros: good traction, lightweight
Cons: some fit issues

The Nike Speed TD football shoe features a molded, no-sew vent system that provides breathability. One-piece forefoot adds a comfort fit. Conform sockliner is lighter and shapes to your foot. Molded Speed outsole delivers a lighter, traction control system. Sidewall cleats enable quicker, stronger movements on the edge. Wt. 11.0 oz.

Great Cleat Pattern, Not So Great Fit

The Nike Speed TD has an amazing cleat pattern. The grip and balance I get from these is among the best of any cleats I've tried (which is a lot of cleats). They have a low to the ground feel which I think is incredibly important for cutting.
Overall sizing is just how I want it. I wear an 8.5 running shoe and an 8.5 in these. They're tighter than the running shoes, as they should be, so it's nice that my sizes correspond. They're snug in the toe without being too tight like other cleats I've tried (Under Armour SoFlos have this problem). Comfort on these is really good. Not as good as the old Super Speed TDs, but pretty good.
The big issue I have with these is the tapered arch support in the sole. It's really hard, takes time to break in, and if you have a low arch like me, can really destroy your feet. Because of this, I've had to use them off and on with the SoFlos (which have their own issues). Right now I'm back to using the Speed TDs, and I hope I can stick with them this time, because their traction is awesome, and because customized Nike ID Vapor Jet 4.2s would be sick.
Pros: comfortable, good traction, lightweight
Cons: not good if you have a low arch

Designed for the fastest athletes in football, the second edition of the Nike Vapor Carbon Fly has gotten even quicker. Zero-space upper design creates a streamlined, aerodynamic fit for smoking fast movements. Flywire technology for lockdown support that doesn't slip during cuts. Dual-density sockliner in the midsole includes Zoom Air™ for dense, responsive cushioning. Outsole is made of Pebax® and carbon fiber for a combination of midfoot stiffness and toe flexibility. Molded TD cleat pattern is strong enough to grip, even in the toughest conditions. Good for both natural and synthetic surfaces. Wt. 10.4 oz.
 

Vapor Carbon 1 vs. 2

Aside from the visual detailing, is there anything different between this and the first version of the Vapor Carbon? Like did they fix the fragile soleplate with the cleats that would fall out after a couple weeks?

 Nike Zoom Vapor Carbon Fly TD - Men's
Nike Zoom Vapor Carbon Fly TD - Men's
This lightweight cleat has Nike's smart design elements like Flywire and Zoom Air™ for the fastest athletes in the game. The Nike Zoom Vapor Carbon Fly football cleat has an integrated dynamic tongue for ultimate lockdown and Nike Flywire technology for maximum support and minimal weight. Flywire is composed of ultra-thin nylon threads that are designed to add the same amount of support as a standard upper but at a fraction of the weight. Reduced weight means more of the muscle action on the field is going towards your game than towards the effort of lifting the cleat off the ground. A Zoom Air™ unit in the midsole offers responsive cushioning. The injected Pebax® frame has a carbon fiber insert for ultimate response and propulsion. That carbon fiber insert gives more support to the lightweight Pebax® to drive your stride. With a weight of only 9.9 ounces, this molded cleat is poised to make you fly on the field.
 

How does the new carbon fiber in the sole impact the shoe?

I'm curious whether they're significantly stiffer than the Vapor Jet 4.2, or take longer to break in.
