So the fact that the Ronaldo has chosen to wear only one particular boot his entire professional career, the Nike Mercurial, no higher endorsement can be had for Nike Football (Soccer). But that doesn’t mean that Nike can loosen their grip on cleat innovation and with the new Mercurial Vapor 8, the brand as delivered yet again. The Mercurial Vapor 8 is a boot that delivers light weight, comfortable, and responsive performance within a re-engineered upper built for explosive speed. Arriving in a bright mango colorway with a new eye-catching signature on the heel, the Mercurial Vapor 8 has been designed to prevent unnecessary foot movement within the boots while the Teijin Microfiber upper increases ball control and touch through its suede-like finish. In the traction department, the Mercurial Vapor 8 employs two twin studs at the back that allow for quick release from the turf while the asymmetric stud layout cuts through the grass and provide the grip you need for quick direction changes. The new Mercurial Vapor 8 will make its on debut on March 24 and will be available at Nike retailers beginning March 29th.
