Nike Mercurial Vapor X CR

The Mercurial Vapor X receives its share of the CR treatment as Nike offer Ronaldo's latest signature colourway on their low cut silhouette.

Not neglecting players who prefer the low-cut Vapor Nike have shared out the CR goodness to brush up their tenth generation boot with a matching signature Cristiano Ronaldo hook-up. Since the launch of the Superfly the Mercurial Vapor X has played somewhat of a supporting role, but that role has only been restricted to marketing as Nike heavily backed their new technology in a series of epic campaigns. On pitch the Vapor X is very much considered as a top-end alternative to the Superfly and that's confirmed by the player support from the likes of Hazard, Ribery and Zlatan.

Under the hood the Mercurial Vapor remains unchanged with a tongue-less upper that wraps around the foot for locked-down fit, and a micro-textured synthetic upper. As with the Superfly the Mercurial Vapor X CR uses a shimmering effect on the upper to reflect light and to represent Ronaldo's ability to light up a football pitch. A "hyper turquoise" insole bares marks the boot as the seventh CR of the series and underneath matching "hyper turquoise" studs give the boot an edgy finishing touch. Best Vapor of the CR series, boom, we said it.

The Mercurial Vapor X CR is available through selected online stockists including Pro-Direct Soccer from Oct. 24. What's the verdict? Drop us a line below.
