The Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII has exploded onto the scene. In a pure expression of raw speed, Nike's stripped back Mercurial has been specifically designed to fit around your foot like a second skin while delivering enhanced traction to ensure nothing goes to waste.
Nike has re-engineered the famous Mercurial range to unveil a boot with even better performance and a striking new appearance. A series that has been at the pinnacle of the game for over a decade returns with ground breaking innovation and cutting edge technology for the likes of Ronaldo, Neymar, Özil, Ribéry and Drogba.
For the 2012/13 season the Mercurial Vapor takes performance innovation to the next level with a totally re-engineered boot built for explosive speed. A sleeker and closer feel is achieved by a special toe-box reinforcer, increasing comfort around the toe. The new Vapor also features a thinner, stronger and lighter Teijin Microfiber with a suede-like finish, increasing ball control and touch as well as reducing the weight to 185g.
The Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII football boot has been redesigned to create a snug upper while locking down the foot and preventing unwanted movement, Nike's new Anatomic Last takes the fit of the boot to a new level of support and stability. This effect is enhanced by a more minimalist and softer heel counter, maximizing both comfort and fit.
The new Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII football boots deliver the ultimate in fit, touch and traction. A combination that has established the Mercurial as one of the greatest speed boots of all time. Nike recognise the modern game is played on a fine line and that one slip could be the difference between success and failure - traction is everything.
