Key Facts: Teijin leather like upper, Original Mercurial colorway, limited to 1000 pairs, 10th Anniversary of the original Mercurial. Colour: Black/MTLC SUMMIT WHT-SPRT RED NIOR. Boots also come with Ronaldo Goals Career Booklet, Nike Mercurial Boot Bag and Proof of Receipt. To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the original Mercurial Nike created the last ever R9 production boot.
The boot of the time was the Vapor III and so produced a limited run of 1000 boots in the original Black/Pearl/Comet Red colorway. This colorway was like nothing else produced in a Vapor III and had a more leather like finish to the upper, a much larger side swoosh like the originals and accompanying the boots was a Book called'10 Years of Goals' which was printed in English and Italian.The boots themselves were wonderful and utilized all of the Vapor III's assets, which actually enhancing them with the new upper which felt softer and molded to your foot quicker. The boots naturally higher toe box was also coated in the touch coating from the original Mercurial, the carbon fiber heel counter continued as did the PORON inserts for added comfort.
The only difference for this boot from the original in terms of details was the new two piece soleplate allowed for the ultimate make up for the underside of the boot. Gone was the Pearly soleplate with black studs and black waves, replaced by the classic black upper finish, silver lines and red swoosh. A great boot to play in and very hard to find these days, and in my opinion genuinely different enough from the standard Vapor III's to have its own place in this list. After the 1994 World Cup, Nike exploded into the world of soccer. The brand was looking to improve on their standard Tiempo line and craft a cleat suited to their new poster boy, Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima.
Inspired by his explosive style and quick moves on the pitch, Nike designers took to the track. Early concepts included a dissembled track spike on a Nike Tiempo upper, which resulted in unmatched weight reduction in a football boot.This concept ultimately delivered a game-changing boot in the original Mercurial, which has since spawned a line of innovative and revolutionary products over the past 16 years. The Mercurial line has seen a vast number of changes and a bucket load of bright ideas since it started all the way back in the late 90's. With Ronaldo's help, the success of a "speed boot" has been realized through his career so far and the legacy that will follow. Take a look back at every generation of Mercurial and how it reacts on pitch, what it feels like on foot and ultimately what has been the best boot so far. Condition is New with box.
