The cat is out of the bag, or should we say the goldfish is out of the bowl, take a look at the next generation of the Mercurial Vapor from Nike. Superfly is off the table until 2014 when it is expected to make a reappearance on Nike’s flagship speed boots in time for the World Cup Finals hosted by Brazil. So what is new with the Vapor 9?

As you can see from the small image of the Vapor 9 boot above and the close-ups of the details around the laces and studs, the Vapor IX is covered in what reminds us of fish scales, or the dimples you find on a golf ball. Coloured orange in this colourway though, we are thinking goldfish! We believe another of the initial colourways will be pink for these boots that are expected to drop in December next year.
We’ll explain the thinking behind the goldfish scales in a follow up post on the Mercurial Vapor IX boots, they aren’t just cosmetic. Stay updated follow our boot news on twitter or facebook, use the links below.
