And if you don’t know anything about this boot:
Nike Mercurial Vapor III was released in 2006, for the FIFA World Cup in Germany. And if
Mania was regarded as a peak of Adidas Predator range then we could say the same thing about
Nike Mercurial Vapor III.
Nike released 15 different colorways of the Vapor III. Most special of them is the Nike Mercurial
Vapor III 10th Anniverary (black/white) they were a limited edition 1000 pairs made to celebrate
10 years of Nike Mercurial!
In the picture you can also see a pair that is completely gold, this colourway was never released as I painted them myslef 😛
Nike Mercurial Superfly V Fg 1998. This boot was one of my projects this year and they are custome made to look like the Mercurial that Brazilian Ronaldo (R9) wore in the World Cup 1998!
Adidas Predator Mania Sg “Blackout” edition! I dare to say these are the rarest Predator Manias made, even the Japan Blues will be at 2nd place!
Nike Mercurial Superfly V Fg “EA-Sport” edition, limited edition only 1500 made!
One of the best looking boots!
Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR SE Sg-Pro!
Took a while for me to find these for a reasonable price. Limited to 100 pairs in the world, my pair is numbered 63 of 100!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
The release of Nike Mercurial Superfly I in 2009 was truly a beginning of something big. The new technology in the Superfly I was called “Flywire”. This Flywire technology allowed Nike to reduce weight without losing strength.
Today Nike is already making the 5th generation of Superflys. Nike have kept the details on Superfly V that we can expect on a proper Superfly, the boot has to be light, durable and good looking, all this components makes the boot look fast!
Only thing that I know some supporters will be missing is the clean Tepex carbon-fibre soleplate, but I think it works with this new designed soleplate. The new plate is constructed by a single of plastic and a whole new level of stud-layout! The studs have all the same shape just placed in different direction, this means that the player can accelerate, stop and change directions in a much faster way than before!
This chapter tells about how the talented and only 18 year old C.Ronaldo was spotted by the legendery coach of Mancester United, Sir Alex Ferguson.
The colours of the boot is made to reflect his time in Sporting Lisbon. On the lateral side of the boot you can see some similiar wave-lines going alongside of the boot, reflecting back to the Mercurial Vapor I that he wore that night back in the day.
The numbers on the heel 06, 08 and 03 is for the date (6th of August 2003) when he was discovered by Manchester United in a friendly game still playing for Sporting Lisbon! He was voted man of the match!

Here’s my custome painted Nike Mercurial Vapor III Fg. I spray painted them few months ago and re-spray painted them yesterday, as the gold colour is very sensitive. The final result is great!
The original colour of these was the release colourway white with the yellow heel and a black Nike swoosh. My first plan was to keep the Nike swoosh visible by painting it white or silver. Once I got painting the gold base I decided to paint the whole boot gold because everyone recognize this boot by it’s shape not by the Nike logo 😉
Really satisfied how they look today!
Pretty rare colourway here in Europe but I noticed they were more common in Asia and US, and I never seen this colour been released in my home country. So could be that they never had an official release in Europe?
Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR SE, Nike Mercurial Vapor IX CR SE Sg-Pro and Nike Mercurial Superfly IV CR SE Sg-Pro 😏👊🏻
The boots are really hard to get hold off nowdays, so I’m glad to own them. I’m also enjoying taking pictures of them, no matter which angle you choose it always results a great picture!
