Old vs. New!They both look great just in different ways! The old boot is back from 2006 and regarded as one of Nike’s best football boots ever the Nike Mercurial Vapor III in it’s release colourway. Last week Nike released a limited edition boot that is a remake version of the old ones, Nike Mercurial Superfly IV CR7 324K to contribute Cristiano Ronaldo’s great goal scoring form. Sadly the boots were not numbered but there is speculations between 324-500 pairs made in the world.

9. Nike Mercurial Vapor III Fg “Argon blue”🔵 I had been looking for these for ages! These are hard to be find especially in Europe.
I listed these as my 9th best pickup of the year not only as they rare but Nike Mercurial Vapor III is regarded by many as the best or most popular Vapor ever made by Nike 👏🏻
More boots to come 👍🏻
Nike Mercurial Vapor III were released in 2006, for the FIFA World Cup in Germany. Still regarded by many as the best Vapor of all time! They were released in 14 different colours and 1 limited edition model. The boots were worn by Thierry Henry & Didier Drogba and ofcourse by the rising star Cristiano Ronaldo.
So yesterday I managed to get a new addition to my Vapor III collection, rare colourway and in Firm Ground soleplate 😍
Currently I own 8 pairs of different colours of Vapor III (all in FG soleplate)!
It’s difficult to choose a favourite, but if I had to choose one over the others it has to be the Nike Mercurial Vapor III 10th Anniverary (black/white) they were a limited edition 1000 pairs made to celebrate 10 years of Nike Mercurial!
I guess every football fanatic remembers Ronaldo Luiz Nazario de Lima, better known R9, use this in World Cup 2006 in Germany. That’s why the Brazilian colour. These are definitely one of the rarest and most wanted colourways of Nike Mercurial Vapor III era. The pair I own are used by ex Norwich City player Simon Whaley, maybe not a big star but a Premier League player after all!
Definitely one of my favourite colours of the Nike Mercurial Vapor III generation.
“One of the last Mercurial Vapor 3 colourways, but the Argon Blue boots seemed to give Ronaldo added powers as he dominated the Premier League in the run up to Xmas – perhaps most memorable for a strike against his old club Sporting in the Champions League”.
