Adidas refunded me the balls missing from the shipment, and the glider balls that came uninflated are wrinkled once inflated, but the wrinkles are fading over time. So thumbs up.

Most shipped balls come uninflated. The only ones that I've gotten that haven't been were in the box displays that they put balls in on the shelf in the store, and we're probably taken right off the shelf or inventory, that was at Dick's.

Other wise this deal is pretty good. Don't know the quality of these balls, but they are Adidas and world cup balls so they stand to be good most likely. Also $8 for a soccer ball and of good quality is a really good deal, most of the time they are $12-$15+

I bought 2 Official Match balls and 4 Top Replique balls during the last sale a couple weeks ago. Good deals all around for sure but for $16 the Replique is my pick. Very nice quality for the price. They feel very similar to the Official Match balls.

Most people are in agreement that you want the Top Replique, not the Glider. I got two of the Repliques and one OMB from the last deal. OMB is just for a shelf item. Repliques are very nice balls for $16. Well worth it.

Is it a bad idea to use an omb for practice?

I wasn't saying that at all. I'm just not good enough a player to really appreciate the difference over a Replique. Plus I got one of the knockout OMBs, which feels like it might be worth something someday.

I would agree with you completely. I would get those too, but I mainly only shoot around or play very informal pick up games sort of near woods where a ball very well could go missing, in that case an $8 loss is better than $16. If I were getting a ball for serious practice or for pick up or competitive play I would suggest the $16 ball too

The top repliques are awesome, but for kids under 8 or 9 the gliders are perfect.

I ordered 2 replique balls last time this deal came up but only received one. I emailed customer service about it immediately and heard nothing back other than we received your email. I called today and the agent told me they have filed a dispute with fed ex and it will take 8-30 business days to hear back from that. I told her they only ever sent one tracking number and the box was clearly only big enough for one ball so there is no way possible it was Fed-exs fault. She basically just said sorry that's all I can do and offered me a 15% off promo code as an apology. I'm so annoyed b/c soccer season is starting and I need the ball. I'm not sure if I should just order another or what, but I will say addidas customer service has definitely disappointed me.

Tried to order a ball and it came up with an error that they cannot process my order right now. Strange.

That's complete bs... I would not have been able to let that one go with a freaking 15% off promo code. You can't be serious... I'm certain almost all the stuff Adidas is selling on that site is way more than 15% overpriced than its true value for sure, so if you buy something w that code, they profit again anyway. How is that an actual apology? And they seriously tried to blame it on FedEx from the start? Even without knowing the size of the box, how likely could it possibly have been FedEx's fault if you use rational critical thinking? Thanks for sharing bc now I know this company is completely ridiculous, and you're a far better person than me for not making a bigger deal about it with them.

That is alarming. You obviously got a uncommon situation, but thanks for sharing. I am going to avoid any potential headaches and wait till these balls go on sale from a more solid seller. Even if I have to pay a few bucks more.
