Nike Mercurial Vapor III Cactus Football Boots

The Nike Cactus Football Boot – Are they a Joke or Serious Football Boots

Much has been made of the new colourway of Nike’s highly successful Mercurial Vapor III range of football boots especially the green, or cactus version. With some football boot sellers refusing to even stock the product because they expect the take up rate to be too low and on the other hand some pro players already wearing it, the question Footy Boots asks is this:

Nike Cactus New Image

Are these Nike football boots, which are just a different colourway, a joke gone too far from Nike, or is this a colour that players across the world are going to be happy to wear each week? Or put another way, would you wear these football boots?

    Are Nike going to carry on adapting the colourways of the Mercurial Vapor III, or are they going to bring out a Mercurial Vapor IIII?

    Hello people,I don’t care what you people feel but the boots don;t even look that bad.Maybe a bit strong for a weak eye but they look quite unique from the mercurial lot.

    What are Nike thinking!?!? Everyone likes white boots and the white Vapors are the most popular and they stopped making them, but they make this s***. Ahhh!!! A week ago I ordered white Vapors and they were the wrong size so I sent them back and then I found out that they just ran out of white Vapors in my size and they are out on So yea I am screwed and they aren’t even going to make any more and then I will have to find a new boot to wear because the Vapor IVs look like s***. Oh well I’ll have the navy Vapors and then there is always the Puma 1.06s. 6.8 oz. 🙂

    Even though these are infact the worst looking MV3’s around they are limited edition so would be the most worthful after a period of time however i m uch prefer the new silver and red/black MV3’s

    I have these boots and they are good, they make you stand out witch gets you noticed, they feel the same as all the other vapours. I guess it just up to you though, by the way the picture is dimmed out they are more greener in real like, cheak your self.

    These boots are so cool, they should deffinately be placed on the market at some stage for people who would like them, who have not yet seen them… I would deffiantely buy them… i love them…

    I have these cleats and I love them. They dont look as bright as they do in the picture. They stand out on the field and are very unique. I’ve had people comment on how much they like them. Normally I’d think this is a hideous color but on the cleats they are cool. My feet are like just a green flash on the field when I run anyway.
    Love them!

    I owned a pair. The colour is nicer than the s*** picture above.

    I would say, the actual colour under the sunlight is NEON GREEN.
