No. 3 – Nike Vapor XV
Released: May 2013
Availability: 1,998 Pairs Worldwide
Over the past several years, players have pleaded for the rerelease of one of the most influential boots ever released, the original Nike Mercurial Vapor. Well, Nike listened and found a way fans a taste of what they craved. What Nike basically did was take the Vapor IX and given it an old-school overhaul. With the original Mercurial Vapor, Nike used several different materials to piece the boots together but with this limited edition version, the upper is completely one piece and the soleplate has undergone the speed treatment. The actual colors used are very similar, with Nike choosing to only update the Yellow seen on the 1998 release to a more modern Volt. Needless to say, these boots sold out in record time!
