Is This the Nike Vapor X CR7 You Have Been Waiting For?

Mercurial Vapor X CR7

Along with their release of the Mercurial Superfly CR7, Nike has added a fresh new version of the Vapor X. It features the same shimmer effect across a classic black upper via an all new iteration of NIKESKIN technology. Loving this look and given the top level performance of the current Vapor silo, this could easily be one of the best all-round releases of the year! Visually they are stunning and in game, they are about as good as it gets right now.

This version of the Vapor X features an all new upper material and a built in tongue – or you could say it is tongue-less. Yes, that’s right – this latest Vapor features no tongue. Using a freshly created, ultra-thin, microfiber upper that mimics the touch of a synthetic leather, Nike created a boot that provides a glove like fit thanks to a fully enclosed design. In order to make the tongue-less design work with lacing, a new lace eyelet pattern has been employed. Rather than a standard “in and out” design, Nike use a double eyelet cut for each directional change. In other words, your lace goes through one eyelet and inside the boot, then a separate eyelet is used to exit the boot.

Important to note is that the CR7 version features no micro-texturing as found in the standard Vapor X model. So, they are slightly different to what some of you are familiar with. This is nothing new, each version of CR7’s boots has featured an alternate material and feel through the upper.
