What is the best brand of soccer cleats?

the best cleats are usually nike or Adidas. whatever you do, do not get synthetic cleats. they rip apart easily and make you have weird first touches. The best kind to get is kangaroo leather. both nike and Adidas have them. newer cleats now have first touch spots which definitely help so I recommend looking for those.I would have to say adidas F50s

It is ludicrous to say that one brand is always better than another brand. To be fair; all manufacturers make cleats that are lower price as well as the upper price range. You can find great cleats in all brands: Nike, Adidas, Diadora, Under Armour, Asics, Pele, Puma, Umbro, Lotto, Joma, Pirma, Warrior. Trick is to TRY THEM ON, to get a feel for what is comfortable for you. You will probably find that leather boots wear better and after a short while will conform to your foot better than a synthetic. Before you buy, go to a few local Soccer stores and get imput from the sales people as well as try on a few pair.

What is the longest running event in the Olympics?

Depends on what the question refers to:

The longest "running" event is the Marathon, but the longest event in terms of distance in the athletics is the Mens 50 kilometre walk (but you certainly aren't allowed to run in that).

Alternatively there are a whole series of events that have been included in every Olympics, therefore there is no single longest running event in terms of being at every Olympics.
