Did You Know Diego Maradona Wore Nike Mercurial Vapor Boots?

Maradona in Vapor

It might have been a friendly and Maradona might have been 10 stone overweight at the time, but we have proof that the Argentinian legend actually wore a pair of Nike Mercurial Vapor in a 2011 charity match.

Then again, maybe he just wanted a boot that would make him faster!?!

Bonus footage of him wearing the boots below!
