    I try to search a lot but no thread on this topic.

    e.g. Nike Cage II weight 16.3 for 10.5 size

    Does anybody knows what weight for size 9 or 11 or 11.5 for cage II? Does weight remain same no matter what size? I doubt.. just want to check..

    I've always wondered that a bit, but I assume it's only a minor weight difference that shouldn't affect you much.

    Since I have litterally no life at all I have weighed all of my shoes:roll:

    Interestingly enough there seems to be some variation between the right and left shoe. This of course may have to do with bad QC.

    Here are my findings (in grams, mind you)

    Nike Vapor Speed sz10: Left: 434g Right: 429g Total: 863g
    Nike Vapor IV sz9.5: Left: 427g Right: 447 Total: 874g
    Nike Vapor IV sz10: Left: 442g Right: 448g Total: 890
    Nike Vapor V sz9.5: Left: 420g Right: 420g Total: 840g
    Nike Vapor V sz8.5 Left: 387g Right: 397g Total: 784g
    Nike Vapor VI sz 9.5: Left: 410g Right: 412g Total 822g

    Interesting finds:

    - The size 8.5 Vapor V is about 7% lighter than the size 9.5. From this I would safely conclude that a bigger shoe = more weight, smaller shoe = less weight. :shock:
    - My Vapor IV size 10 are heavy a** bricks.
    - The Vapor IV size 9.5 are uneven balanced.
    - The Flywire Vapor VI are 18 grams lighter than Vapor V, but Vapor V still rocks :cool:

    I had my doubts and they prove right. I had variety of shoes in different size (sale price is main reason) but they should not be so different..but nike or wilson are same in this area of QC

    If you know the weight in a 10&1/2 size, then you have an actually comparison to other ones or makes/models, in that size,irregardless of your size, you can at least compare most of the ones in 10&1/2 so to know one make or model over another, to know how heavy/ light one is over another, it will at least give you a comparison.
    In otherwords, I am sure you can assume if a shoe weights a lot(heavy shoe), in a 10&1/2 then if your size is say a 12, then you can assume that shoe even in your size it will be a heavy shoe, compared to other ones out there. There doesn't seem to be a need to have the weight of every size/ make.
