In paying tribute to its inaugural model worn by Brazilian great Ronaldo back in 2002, Nike presents the 2014 Mercurial Vapor IX Fast Forward ’02 Edition boot. Although it sports a similar metallic silver and green colorway as its original, this rendition brings modern innovations to its core design as it has been engineered to maximize both the speed and skill of its wearer. Offering a snug and responsive fit, its Speed Control-textured upper gives friction when necessary without comprising the soft touch players require. Additional details include the All Conditions Control technology for consistent touch in wet weather, an enhanced traction system, a lightweight plate made with glass fiber for increased flexibility, a sockliner that lists key moments in the Mercurial’s history, and much more. This special edition Nike boot will be available at Nike.com.
