Commemorating the original soccer shoes that dominated in Germany in the Summer of 2006, the Vapor IX 06M is the third of four World Cup inspired Mercurial releases from Nike.
Worn by El Fenómeno as he passed Gerd Muller's all-time finals scoring mark against Ghana, the visual elements of the 2006 cleat are referenced in the colourway of this new Vapor.
Engineered with a lightweight and textured Teijin upper, the Mercurial Vapor IX FG soccer shoes deliver a level of support and touch for a deadly combination of speed and skill when it matters most.
Designed by Nike to produce enhanced friction, the Speed Control texture on the upper of the Mercurial IX soccer cleats gives you the confidence to perform at speed.
Revolutionary Nike ACC technology ensures the speed control texture is as effective in wet conditions as it is in dry weather for unrivalled all conditions control.
Exuding comfort, the soft and supple Nike Vapor IX upper forms to the foot for the best possible fit while a lightweight perforated sockliner with textile cloth mirrors the foot's natural shape to create low profile cushioning.
Consisting of two layers of glass fiber fused together for a flexible forefoot, the lightweight and durable soleplate grants excellent energy return during push off from the ground.
Longer twin heel cleats offer optimum penetration and stability while shorter forefoot studs provide traction for a range of high speed actions.
A central cleat at one of the last points of contact with the ground prevents the boot from slipping, critical during high speed sprinting. Small toe-off traction at the tip of the forefoot make instant bursts of speed easier.
