The second colorway in the all new Nike Mercurial Vapor 8 series to be released comes in this slick and extremely fresh Sail/Soar/Challenge Red colorway. I have no doubt that there will be a large group of followers lined up to get their hands on what is already sure to be one of the best looking boots in the range! That is a bold statement, but feedback has already labelled this version as one of the most anticipated boots to hit the market in a while. Plus they have a warm spring-into-summer vibe that gives them some additional bonus points!
The Nike Vapor 8 is currently available for $191.99 those of you that want to pick up a pair!
There are several key differences between the Vapor VII and VIII release, all of which we covered comprehensively yesterday in the Vapor 8 release post. All of the changes are geared toward a lighter, more explosive boot that delivers optimal traction. A 2 blade heel design coupled with a suede microfiber upper create an unmistakeably new experience for players. They weigh in at 6.5oz and will retail for $220.
My concern with this colorway lies around the primary white upper and the fact that it is suede. You are going to have to work to keep these clean! But, in my opinion it will be an investment worth making – it is a very sharp look to a much improved Vapor release.
What are your thoughts on this new colorway?
