Take a close look at Nike Soccer's latest Mercurial Vapor IX Boot colorway because once they're strapped on to the feet of Cristiano Rolando's wicked fast feet, you won't being seeing them too well. As with the previous Mercurial's, the Vapor IX is engineered to deliver a superior level of support and touch for players with the brand's new Speed Control texture wrapped around the shoe combined with their innovative All Conditions Control (ACC) technology that further aids performance in all types of weather. The design of the upper also helps to ensure a lock-down fit, to help prevent unnecessary movement inside the boot along with extra cushion placed in at the heel, which is set atop two twin studs and behind an asymmetric stud configuration to help with an explosive start. Technology aside, the new boot colorway matches CR's new Summer 2013 range, rocking a vibrant yellow, red, black, and white striped pattern stamped with Ronaldo's logo, number, and Nike branding. The look is finished with a magic eye-esque Swoosh. This new colorway will be available for sale beginning April 11 at Nike retailers worldwide or directly from the Nike store.
