Amazon jungle themed prints land on the Mercurial boot collection.

As the countdown to Rio continues, and the summer tournament draws nearer, Nike have unveiled their new Mercurial Tropical pack. We've already seen re-released Vapors from previous World Cups but now the Swoosh have dropped another distinctive collection inspired by the host country.

Bold new graphics and colours draw inspiration from the jungles of Brazil to offer an energetic collection of unique Mercurials .The boot’s unique pattern seeks inspiration from the shapes and colours of the Amazon, the world’s largest and most biodiverse tropical rainforest, the majority of which is in Brazil.

Only 2500 pairs of each boot will be released, with a unique number printed onto the heel of each boot. The three colourways are officially labelled as Laser Orange, Flash Green and, the one we're favouring, Hyper Turquoise. The tropical print is digitally printed, allowing for graphics that won’t compromise the All Conditional Control (ACC) finish. 

Tech wise the Tropical Pack designs sit on top of a lightweight, leather grain Teijin upper and ACC technology is used to ensure the boots perform just as well in wet weather as dry. The soleplate is as you were but it's all about the visuals with the Tropical Pack as Nike drop another checkpoint on the road to Rio.
