The latest Nike Vapor VIII release comes compliments of one of the more unique colorway titles on the market – Seaweed! At first glance, it kind of looks like the upper is Black, but it is actually an offset dark Green shade that would remind you of something you’d see floating in the ocean. Matched with the Volt colorway, it offers a really sharp look that is just a little different to anything else we have seen released from Nike before.
In my opinion, it doesn’t quite make the sharpest look we have seen in the range – that accolade goes to the Sail White version – but it is definitely a look that will appeal to a lot of players. Retail wise, this version of the Nike Vapor 8 is already available for $219.99 from soccer.com.
There are several key differences between the Vapor VII and VIII release, all of which we covered comprehensively in our 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.
