In today’s highly technical and fast game straight line speed and ability to simply pass a player is only part of the complete finishers skill set. Combining performance innovation and a heritage of lightweight boots for fast players the Mercurial Vapor IX takes this legacy to the next level for players who reply on tight cuts and turns combined with bursts of explosive speed to beat the opposition.
The Mercurial Vapor IX is engineered with a completely new upper to deliver a level of support and touch for players to deliver a deadly combination of speed and skill when it matters most. Featured in striking fireberry and sunset color ways the boots will make a bold statement on pitch.
Nike’s new Speed Control texture on the upper gives players the confidence to perform at speed with enhanced friction that combines with a snug and responsive fit, a hallmark of Mercurial boots.
The Mercurial Vapor IX upper locks down the foot and prevents unnecessary movement within the boot whilst a minimal and soft heel area maximizes the comfort of the boot and therefore the performance of those wearing them.
Nike’s Mercurial range has always been about innovation and how best to aid a player’s touch and explosive speed. The new boot features a speed control texture that wraps around the foot, giving the boot friction when necessary without compromising on the soft touch the player requires.
Nike’s innovation All Conditions Control (ACC) technology further aids performance as the special treatment now used on all Nike boots ensures a consistent touch whether playing in wet or dry weather.
For the player who relies on explosive speed and who wears the Mercurial Vapor IX, traction is everything. 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. Highly responsive blades also allow for game-altering changes in direction at speed.
The Mercurial Vapor IX features a unique, lightweight plate, incorporating two different pieces of glass fiber that increase flexibility and responsiveness, providing energy return in the heart of the game.
Since it’s original launch over ten years ago, the Mercurial has always stood out. Bold and exciting, the boot’s color and design has always got its players noticed and the new Vapor IX is no different.
The Mercurial fireberry and sunset color ways will be available January 31st at Nike.com and all major Nike distributors and Weston Corporation outlets. The Mercurial will retail for S$299.
