The excitement surrounding the launch of the Nike Vapor IX is building. This past weekend we were given a sure sign that the official launch isn't too far away. Thankfully some players don't care too much for an embargo date! Real Madrid's Luka Modric and Manchester United defender Alex Buttner have both given us an early preview of what to expect this January.
United defender Alex Buttner yesterday took to his Twitter account (@ButtnerBrothers) to reveal his Nike Vapor IX boots ahead of Manchester United's morning training session. It's become common for practise for Nike players to tweet pictures of their new boots, but we have a feeling Buttner might have gone rouge with this pic!
Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric used Madrid's open training session to test out his flash new boots. Nike treated the Croatian to the Fireberry/Green/Red colourway that will be released alongside Buttner's Sunset/Volt/Crimson/Black design. Both boots are scheduled for a mid Jan release.
