Re-engineered for even better performance and striking design.
For over a decade, the Nike Mercurial range has set the standard for ground-breaking innovation in football boots. Cutting edge technology has consistently produced a boot that delivers light weight, comfort and responsive performance. Now, the new Mercurial Vapor VIII takes performance innovation to the next level with a re-engineered boot built for explosive speed.
The Mercurial Vapor VIII combines both innovation and style with a seamless fit, touch and traction. A striking new design features a bright mango colorway with a new visual signature on the heel to help the boot stand out on pitch.
Completely redesigned to create a snug upper while locking down the foot and preventing unnecessary foot movement within the boots, Nike’s new Anatomic Last takes the fit of the boot to a new level of support and stability. This is enhanced by a more minimalist and softer heel area, maximizing both comfort and fit. The result is a boot that gives the world’s best players the performance they need .
Cristiano Ronaldo has worn Mercurial boots his entire career and they have once again met his exacting standards. “The Mercurial Vapor VIII gives my game an edge combining the latest design and innovations. I can get ahead of defenders, knowing that the boot will give me the speed and grip I need without compromising support, control or, of course, style.”
The Teijin® Microfiber upper has a suede-like finish, increasing ball control and touch. A sleeker and closer feel to the foot is achieved by making the material around the toe softer and more comfortable for a seamless touch. A thinner and stronger construction reduces the weight of the boot to 185g -- just right for a combination of speed, with the optimal levels of support and durability.
Traction is everything when the final goal is explosive speed and the Mercurial Vapor VIII delivers on both fronts. Two twin studs at the back allow for a quick release from the turf and the asymmetric design of the stud configuration delivers an explosive start. Sharper blades cut through the turf, allowing for game-altering changes in direction at speed.
The Mercurial Vapor VIII also features a unique plate, incorporating two different pieces of glass fiber that increase flexibility and responsiveness. Small dimples alleviate stud pressure at the mid-foot, providing energy return in the heat of a game.
Combining insights from leading players and Nike’s design and innovation technology, the new Mercurial Vapor VIII will make its on pitch debut March 24th and be available at retail March, 29th. The boots will cost $220.
