Nike presents their latest soccer shoe, the Mercurial Vapor 8. The mango colored shoe comes with a seamless upper with nice design details featured on the heel. The carbon fiber plate also looks great.

“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 8 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 8 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. “

Priced at 220 USD, the Nike Mercurial Vapor 8 will release on March 29 at retailers.
