Few boots can boast reaching 25 years of existence in the football boot market. But that is where the Nike Mercurial is right now, proudly announcing its anniversary with a special pair that is sure to capture everyone’s attention.
It’s quite nostalgic that the football boot model that is now on its silver anniversary began its rise to dominance when the Brazilian Ronaldo laced up that particular matte silver with blue and yellow ‘R9’ Mercurial in the 1998 World Cup.
To commemorate the legacy of the renowned speed boots, Nike has created 25th anniversary XXV Limited Edition Mercurial Superfly & Vapor Boots. It is a tribute to a silo worn by some of the most iconic footballers worldwide who have transformed the game with their unparalleled speed and style.

The celebratory boots feature elements of the Mercurial’s history and is presented with an unmistakable appearance. A MXXV graphic in gold outline and greyish iridescence, in conjunction with the Swoosh of the same profile, adds a distinctive touch to the legendary logo, empowering you to unleash your inner trailblazer every time you step onto the field. Do take note that the Swoosh on the Superfly is pushed towards the toe box, whereas on the Vapor it sits right on the lateral side.

Additionally, the entire upper is wrapped with a sparkling silver finish, an appropriate salute to the most significant and game-changing soccer boots in history. A repeating silhouette pattern of the Mercurial branding completes the look of this once in a lifetime football boot.
