Nike has dropped their latest Mercurial boot silo onto Nike By You platform (what was formally Nike ID) giving us a true glimpse at how the speed boot can be completely customized. The system for creating your own look is pretty simple; Nike provides you with the canvas and tools to design, you create something that is unique to you, then your personalized design arrives in 2-5 weeks.
It was the release of a limited edition Orange Mercurial Vapor last week that gave us a sneak peak at how unique players could make their own design, especially around the heel. From flags to your name in bold letters or a special message, there is so much to play around with. In order to give you some inspiration, Nike provided 10 pro players with the opportunity to completely personalize their own pairs, each can be used as a base for creating your own design.
Creating a design is a lot of fun, with the ability to modify pretty much every element of the Mercurial you choose – Vapor or Superfly. For the upper, you can choose a translucent or iridescent finish, with several colors in each to choose from. Pick the type of traction system you want, color of the Swoosh and let the design become yours. Once you have your base design chosen, you get to go through 5 areas of unique personalization, where you can add your name, number, flag, and colors. It is pretty wild and definitely the next level of customization!
Price wise, creating your own pair of Vapor will cost you $270, while the Superfly drops at $295. For those that want to create or just play around with the designs, head to Nike By You.
