Closer Look | Nike Mercurial Vapor CR7 Chapter 2

The reliable companion of the Superfly is touched with the tip of the CR7 wand as the second chapter saves a line or two for the Nike Mercurial Vapor X.

The stunning simplicity of the Mercurial Vapor X has installed it as one of the most popular boots of the Vapor series. The one-piece upper, slip-on design and minimal visuals have created the canvas for creativity and Nike have utilised that fully with the CR7 signature series. A majestically smooth and polished blue floods the Vapor X to sit in line with the boot worn by the man himself – the Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 'Natural Diamond'.

The CR7 series has provided a number of the slickest designs to land on the Vapor X silhouette and the latest make-over carries extra significance in the fact that it's the tenth Cristiano Ronaldo signature design to takeover the upper of the Vapor line – a feat that is acknowledged on the in-sole of the boot as Ronaldo's Swoosh collection glides into double figures.

Some description

The rocky road design on the heel of the Superfly is replicated on the Vapor X in a flat graphic print to ensure the sleekness of the boot isn't interrupted but the story is the same. The design represents the second stage of Cristiano Ronaldo's life, described by the man himself as his most difficult time – a time where Ronaldo moved away from home as a 12-year-old child to pursue his dream of becoming a professional footballer. The boy did good.
