On 17th November it was the Nike Mercurial Vapor Berry. 24 days later, the Vapor Citron made it’s bow, en masse, across a bunch of Champions League games. And now, here are details of the latest Vapor colourway which will be available in the UK in early February.’
This is the latest incarnation of the Mercurial Vapor IV in classic charcoal, max orange & metallic silver.
By the way, good job it’s classic charcoal eh? We wouldn’t be seen dead in a pair of non-classic charcoal football boots.
Currently doing the rounds in the USA, they are priced at $204.99.
The Vapor charcoal will be on general sale in the UK in the New Year but you can pre order now through the Footy Boots Shop. You’ll also find details of the new charcoal indoor and astroturf trainers.
Nike Mercurial Vapor IV
The Mercurial Vapor IV features Nike’s innovative Speed Plate technology designed to give players instant acceleration and make them fastest to the ball. Additionally, a re-engineered upper has been crafted not just to make players faster, but faster while dribbling and shooting.
In order to aid dribbling with the ball at speed, just one seam exists in the shoe’s upper material, while a new stitched stretch lace cover creates a cleaner ball contact area. The football boot is also wrapped in a clear tactile coating that creates a gripped surface for all playing conditions.
Vapor Traction System
The Mercurial Vapor IV’s Vapor Traction System broadens the scope of player fit; heel pods have been expanded laterally for more cushioning and extra protection. Stabilizing the foot, a form-fitting insert cradles the heel, while a Glass Fibre heel wrap provides lightweight stability with minimal slippage. All told, the comfortable ride of the Mercurial Vapor allows for sustained play at speed, keeping the ball where it should be: on your feet or in the net.
