Mercurial Vapors II

Mercurial Vapors II were launched in early 2004 in the two simple colours of photo blue and team red. The first player to wear the blue boots was Ronaldo at the Nou Camp for Real Madrid against Barcelona. The red were released for the first time on a two goal scoring debut  by Thierry Henry in Arsenals greatest away victory 5 1 over Inter Milan in the San Siro.

This upgraded version had a very slightly thicker material upper and a cushioned area around the ankle.  The cosmetic patterns on the outside were changed slightly too with more pronounced identations and a narrow contrast stripe to accentuate the vivid colours.   The basics of the boots remained the same. However there was another big batch of colour variations released in this version including a kangaroo leather version in black /white and an a Real Madrid colourway worn by Ronaldo of alminium and gold.  There are not many Mercurial Vapors II around now but there are still some at Amazon at less than half original price.
