World Cup Vapors

world cup vapors

Have you ever seen so many players in the same match wearing the same boots as each other?  Mercurial Vapors are everywhere !  There are a phenomenal amount of players flashing orange heels at the cameras in the matches seen so far in this tournament.  Nike must have done some serious work to get this amount of players wearing identical boots.  It seems in some games as though half the players are wearing them. Also when I was looking at them I couldnt decide if the rest of the boot was purple or silver. I would change my mind while watching each time from purple to silver and thought my eyes were deceiving me.  However, the official colour name is metallic purple so I am not going potty.

Superfly 2 is an extra light upgrade for the World Cup which weighs in at only 210 grams for the most popular size.

I believe they are all sporting the Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly 2 which is a very light top of the range boot rrp £275.    I have spotted some at 10% discount.

Mercurial Vapors

Mercurial Vapors were released in 2002 just before the World Cup, and they came to the market as the lightest boot available with several shiny new key innovations. Its upper was made of an very thin, lightweight synthetic known as Nike Skin. The claim being that it was thinner and stronger than any kangaroo leather. Mercurial Vapors also featured an external heel counter which was very rare at that time as well as a “glass” filled outsole named NikeFrame, inspired by athletic sprinting spikes and designed to spring back into shape after push-off. The original marketing blurb claimed the shoe showed a 3% decrease in the time to cover a 20 metres compared to traditional boots. So you can actually run faster in these apparently. 

The first time the boots were seen outside of Nike was in the ‘Cage advert ‘ with Cantona, Roberto Carlos and Thierry Henry, in which a close-up image of the boots is taken near the end of the advertisement.

The first release saw the introduction of just 3 colour variations followed by another just after the World Cup which was worn by Ronaldo in the semi final and Final.   Several more colours quickly followed as the boot gained popularity.

Mercurial Vapors have progressed through from the original design in 2002 to design Mercurcial Vapor V now.   The have been worn by some of the worlds top players and continue in that vain with players like Cristano Ronaldo , Aaron Lennon and Luis Fabiano doing them proud.

There are currently some real bargains at Kitbag including both soft ground and firm ground Mercurial Vapors

Pink Vapors

There can’t be anything more eyecatching on a football pitch than a pair of Pink Vapors flying down the wing. The brightest football boots I have seen are famously worn by french international midfielder Franck Ribery of Bayern Munich.

If you are looking for the Pink Vapors they are officially called Berry Mecurial Vapors IV and were launched as a limited edition in November.  They have been extremely popular and you may have to search a while to find a pair if you would like to be dashing down the wing yourself in a pair of these football boots

Who should buy Mercurial Vapors ?


Pato Vapors Mercurial Vapors are widely worn by top International footballers. If you study the type of player that typically wears them then you quickly notice than these players are either very quick or very tricky or both.   These boots are definitely aimed at the skilful player rather than the tough tackler , the flamboyant rather than the run of the mill.  If you see yourself  as a quick player who’s touch would benefit from the extra finesse of  a very lightweight boot or a skilful player who would benefit from the extra zip over 5 yards  then you should really give them a try. There are several choices of course. Firstly you need to decide if you prefer the sole unit of the soft ground or firm ground boots. Then there are the various models which generally starting at V get cheaper backwards or the older the design.  You can buy  Mercurial Vapors anywhere between £49.99 and £129.99  There is also the Mercurial Vapors Superfly which is a premium extra light but fabulous boot for whose who really want to spoil themselves. These are recommended to sell at  £224.99

Mercurial Vapors IV

 Mercurial Vapors IV were released in February 2008, retail sale price of £119.99, and with two colour choices of orange peel/dark obsidian and black/vivid blue and weighing about 230 grams. A new red with gold colourway was worn by Cristiano Ronaldo in a televised Manchester United match in March and released to the stores in April.  Meanwhile Aaron Lennon and Gabrielle Agbonlahor were wearing them in adverts featuring sprint training.

Over the coming months there were regular releases of more colour variants and the choice was fantastic. The football boots being worn by many Premier League players in high profile matches.

Cristiano Ronaldo was wearing different colours in different matches for Manchester Utd and Didier Drogba was also wearing in his Chelsea matches. Aaron Lennon at Tottenham and Bendter at Arsenal was also getting noticed in his brightly coloured boots.   Perhaps the brightest was a pink variation which has been famously worn by Franck Ribery of Bayern Munich and France.  They are probably the most vivid boots ever and aren’t the best colour match to his red Bayern Munich football kit.

By now these boots are a huge success and worn in big numbers by amateurs and professionals alike.

Mercurial Vapors III

Mercurial Vapors III were the third generation in the Mercurial Vapor family of boots and were launched in 2006. They featured Teijin microfibres which easily moulded to the foot and were extremely lightweight and plyable. The boot  weighed just 196g (6.9oz). It also had a carbon last to give support to the heel and more padding was added to the heel cup area. The first Mercurial Vapor IIIs were released in a white/gold design, which was quickly followed by several more culminating in a limited edition boot  which was released to commemorate  the fourth World Cup triumph of Italy in World Cup gold/ blue.

Towards the end of the 2006–07 season, even more colourways were released.

In September 2007, Nike released a limited edition 10th anniversary version of the Mercurial Vapor, featuring “all the modern technology from the current Mercurial Vapors III combined with the original Mercurial Upper design from 1998.” The boots featured in an advert with the Brazilian star Ronaldo, where he recreated some of his past goals, which he scored wearing the famous Mercurial Vapor boots.
