More about the Nike Mercurial Vapor 8

All-black prototypes of the upcoming Mercurial Vapor VIII by Nike have found themselves at the feet of Arsenal stars Walcott, Gervinho, Arshavin and Chamakh, as well as the Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo himself.



This next big super-light release has recently been worn by Brazilian wonderkid of Santos Neymar in training, confirming that a new glass-fibre soleplate should be replacing the expensive carbon-fibre unit of the Superfly series.



This incarnation, shown below in an impressive white and blue colourway, is expected to go ‘back to basics’, with a sleek upper and being stripped of Flywire technology as well as Sense studs.



Note that, a few days ago, Mesut Özil received an unreleased pair of Nike Mercurial Vapor 8 football boots, continuing the wave of pros to test them out ahead of next summer’s release.
