An appeal to the collective wisdom of the boards:

Picked up a pair of unworn Vapor VI Safaris (from original 2009 Release) on EBay. Want to give them a run out, but notice the heel liner has begun to ever-so-slightly peel.

Last Thanksgiving, I played for fun in my pair of 2010 WC CTR360 Maestris (admittedly, with grip socks on). The cleats, which had been in near pristine condition, had a significant portion of the heel liner ripped out—I suspect from the grip socks.

I want to avoid this on my Vapor VI Safaris. How do I best care for an aging synthetic boot (over 10 years old now), and assure they can hold up?

I don’t think there’s much you can do aside from not playing in them.

Natural grass probably better than turf.
