The 2008 Nike Mercurial Vapor Super Light. Featuring Nikes Super Light Carbon Fibre sole plate. I am sure you can imagine how super light these boots actually are. An unbelievable 210 grams per boot these are the boots you really do feel like your playing in socks! The Pine colour pictured were actually debuted in the 2008 Euro Championships by the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United.
As you can imagine with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo sporting these boots, you get a real feel about what they can actually deliver. The feeling generally seems to be that if you are not a speedy, agile, flair player you need not apply. The Nike Mercurial Vapor Super Light encompasses both laces as well as a lace cover allowing no mistakes when it comes to touch and striking the ball sweetly.
Like the Nike “Pink” Vapors these Super Light Carbon Fibre are a one of a kind and you will either be the perfect player for them or the complete opposite of them. Fast wingers and flair strikers would suit perfectly while a “Dog Fight” of a battle in the middle of the park could make these boots a little unsuitable. The way football boots are designed nowadays allows footballers all over the world to sport a pair of boots that are perfect for there individual game. These again capitalize on this and allow the fast players to become “MUCH MUCH FASTER!”
One of the best things we have picked out on these boots is the fact that the carbon fibre soleplate actually helps stabilize and strengthen the boot while making it lighter. That to me is an unbelievable combination.
Possibly the quickest football boots made in 2008!
