Football Boots > Football Shinpads - Nike Mercurial Blade - 19/03/09

Not content with revolutionising the football boots world, Nike have released a brand new innovative carbon fibre shinpad: the Nike Mercurial Blade!

The ultimate accessory for anyone who owns a pair of Nike Mercurial football boots, the Mercurial blade is "designed to be the best for the best" and will certainly protect you against strong challenges from envious players!

The lightweight and ultra-thin Nike Mercurial Blade shinpads cost £70, but then they are quite possibly the most technically advanced shinpads ever! But don't just take our word for it, listen to what Nike have to say about their shinpads...

"Ultra thin protection meets superior form and function: a carbon fibre weave shell mated to a dual-foam layer with Poron for advanced impact distribution and comfort."

The Nike Mercurial Blade shinpads can either fit directly into your sock or into a seamless DryFIT pocketed sleeve, which ensures breathability and maximum security. The Nike Blade shinpads also arrive with their own protective case, so like we said before Nike really are pushing the boundaries when it comes to football products.

Seventy quid for a pair of shinnies?  Nike execs must be on something really good right now, and the sad thing is that there are enough gullible gits out there willing to buy them to match their precious bloody Vapors.....
