MERCURIAL VAPOR VI
Nike’s Mercurial Vapor VI football boot.
All the rabid speculation over when would and would not be included from the Superfly II can now come to an end.
Nike continue relying on the strength of their synthetic Teijin Leather for the Upper of this speed football boot;
The hollowed out studs are an absolutely standout feature of the Mercurial Vapor VI – decreasing weight but maintaining structural integrity. We’re also glad to see the friction-boosting off-the-toe acceleration area carry over from the Superfly II.
Interestingly, you can see that the lace cover stops part way up the laces – even more so than the Vapor V – our best guess for the reasoning behind this is to allow a tighter fit across the ‘collar’ and also so that bunched-up laces don’t end up behind the cover, which would ruin the smooth kicking area.
The most revealing picture of the new Mercurial Vapor VI is this one – glass fibre (instead of carbon fibre) and No NikeSENSE studs
Who can we expect to bypass the Superfly II for the Mercurial Vapor VI? Manchester United Winger Nani is one of many top-flight stars who prefer the lacecover of the Vapor!
