Football Boots > Nike Mercurial Vapor VII Football Boots – Volt/Purple/Retro

Eye-catching enough for you? Nike have held nothing back for the new Volt/Purple/Retro Mercurial Vapor VII football boots! It's set to be a busy few months ahead for new football boots, and Nike want to make sure their boots outshine the opposition on the pitch!

Prepare for a Volt Mercurial onslaught as Nike's Mercurial roster gets ready to brave one of the boots most audacious colourways to date! Released alongside the Superfly III, the new Volt/Purple/Retro Mercurial Vapor VII is everything we've come to expect from Nike's design team! Take a look at our exclusive imagery and share your thoughts with the SoccerBible community online, on Twitter and on Facebook

Nike seem to save their most eccentric and eye-catching colour schemes for the Mercurial range, which is perhaps one of the reasons they have such a cult following! The new Nike Mercurial Vapor VII football boots have picked up where the previous versions left off...making headlines! Whether it's Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar, Vapor's have their reputation because they are designed for speed.

The new Volt/Purple/Retro Nike Vapor VII soccer shoes are set to take the spotlight and ignite the boot world once again, in a time when it seems the rivalry between adidas and Nike has never been fiercer! This bold eye-catching new colourway, looks to be the perfect colour combination for the Brazilian duo of Robinho and Neymar.

The asymmetric lightning bolt on the new Nike Mercurial Vapor VII is slightly toned down, in that it's coloured Volt to matches the majority colour of these boots. The heel area and instep are coloured Retro, and the overall design is to put players in the spotlight.

The Tepex glass-fibre chassis, that has become a Vapor favourite and looks especially cool in the SG edition, brings you close to the Vapor's enhanced traction elements. The Vapor Traction II design means the forefoot FG studs are shaped to offer multi-directional traction, with central arms for acceleration/deceleration and optimal sprint traction.

The new Volt/Purple/Retro upper of the Mercurial Vapor VII is constructed from the same Teijin micro-fibre that is designed to improve comfort, flexibility and help a players touch. The upper is enhanced with specifically placed 'ball-control coating' on the lateral forefoot, to aid control of the ball at top speed.

The Vapor 7's FG sole-plate includes the same direct injected studs that incorporates 8 cored-out studs to provide a dramatic 12% weight reduction whilst enhancing strength and durability. Acceleration and sprinting is further enhanced by concentrated forefoot zonal spikes, inspired by tracks spikes to optimise grip at toe-off for an extra burst of speed, giving you an advantage over the opposition.

If you want to get your hands on a pair of the  new Volt/Imperial Purple/Retro Nike Mercurial Vapor VII football boots, Nike have priced their newest release at around £150 GBP / $240 USD / €170 EURO and they are available to pre-order now ahead of a 1st October release.
