Nike Mercurial Vapor VIII Euro Clash 2012 FG

New without box - a few very minor white spots around the sock liner, zoom in last pic

The Upper:

  • A revolutionary change from Nike introducing the Vapor VIII
  • The upper was still a variation of the Teijin synthetic material, but it had a different coating applied to it
  • Overall, it made the colorway have more of a polished, leather/suede type look, instead of the vibrant and shiny Mercurial uppers we have been used to seeing
  • This colorway was one of the only Vapor VIII not to feature the ACC element, Nike rolled that out shortly after this colorway was produced
  • This was the first colorway to feature the ACC technology, which slightly modified the Vapor VIII model, adding a clear, reinforced strip near the toe box and sole plate for added reinforcement 

The Sole Plate:

  • A major breakthrough was Nike using only 2 studs at the back
  • With half of the studs we are used to, the sole plate still had excellent stud pressure and was extremely light
  • Nike continued with the glass fiber sole plate, that was very thin and flexible.  A major advantage to these speed boots

Notes and Comments:

  • The Vapor VIII was the first Mercurial in half a dozen years to not feature a Superfly one, and really, there was no need for a Superfly
  • The color way was so subtle and effective, no need for the flashy and shiny uppers
  • In terms of comfort, the upper was so flexible and smooth, a major upgrade compared to the previous stiff Superfly model
  • This is the Euro 2012 colorway part of the Clash Pack
