Nike Mercurial Vapors
The Mercurial Vapor is a football boot manufactured by Nike. The boot is known for being lightweight, the latest versions weighing 185 g (6.5 oz) per boot. Because of this, the boot is favoured by many players for whom speed is a very important part of their game, notably wingers or strikers.
The original Nike Vapors were released in mid-2002, just before the World Cup of that year. The first glimpse anyone outside of Nike got of the boots was in the Nike cage advert (starring Eric Cantona, Thierry Henry, and Roberto Carlos), in which a close-up shot of the boots is taken near the end of the advert. The boot was first released in three colourways: cinder/white/maize; dark obsidian/white/university blue; and medium grey/chilli red. A chrome/lime variation (worn exclusively by Ronaldo in the Semi-Finals and Final) was released to the public in limited numbers (just 4,600) in the period after the tournament. The Nike Mercurial Vapor is often referred to as the Vapor Mercurial or the Nike Mercurial.
