History of Nike Mercurial!


I’m sad not to be able to participate in the history of Mercurial event in @worldsbestfootballstore in Kopenhagen, as I’m myself on a trip to Vancouver, Canada! 

But instead I will post a picture of my Nike Mercurial collection, all the way from 1998 to 2016!

Long live Nike Mercurial 😃


The fact that I’m like 5000 km from in Vancouver, Canada so I had to prepare by taking as many pics as possible so I can keep up posting on InstaGram and blog LOL

Will post some cool pics in few following days on InstaGram as @toffem and here on the blog! 

Nike Mercurial R9!

 Three boots that were designed for @ronaldolima “R9” in World Cups!

 

First boot from left was made for the 1998 World Cup in France, second boot is one we all know was for 2002 World Cup in Japan & South Korea and the third boot with the colours of Brazil was made for 2006 World Cup in Germany!
  
One of the greatest strikers of all time and some great memories related to these models! 👌🏻

  

Nike Mercurial Vapor I Collection

I’m posting pictures of my Nike Mercurial collection and here next is a picture of my Nike Mercurial Vapor I collection.

This model is very close to my heart!

  
Did you or your friends have a pair of these back in 2002-2003? I remember many of the top strikers in Europe using these boots.

Nike Mercurial Vapor III’s

  
Here’s my complete Nike Mercurial Vapor III collection. It’s a tough question to choose which one is my favourite, but I guess I have to go with the red/white or 10th Anniversary!

  
Vapor III is regarded as one of the best Mercurials Nike ever made and I know many would love to get to use them again! All of the Vapor III are hard to come by nowdays, but I would say the rarest ones are 10 th Anniversary, red/white and gold Italy edition.

  
Perhaps the best detail in these boots were the different colours in the heel! They also adverised these back in 2006 in comparison to snake skin!

Which one do you choose?

Nike Mercurial Vapor II Sg R9

  

Finally added this great pair to my collection! Made back in 2004, Nike Mercurial Vapor II Sg in rare gold colourway. 

  
Found them for a reasonable price for 100£+shipping and condition as new I believe this was a bargain. The design is quite simple but still beautiful, the balance between gold, white and black Nike swoosh completes it all!

  

Nike Mercurial Vapor I Fg “Chrome/Lime”

In my opinion one of the best picture I have posted, hope everyone agrees? 🙏🏻As Nike today released a new limited edition boot, Nike Mercurial Superfly 324K, I thought it would be nice to post a picture of what I believe is Nike’s first limited edition boot. The Nike Mercurial Vapor I Fg “chrome/lime” released for World Cup final 2002. The boots were limited to 4600 pairs globally and today they are one of the most sought after on the market.

  

Winter times

It’s finally winter in Finland, but way too cold as it’s been -20 C for several days already and it wont stop ❄️So here I have a picture of Nike Mercurial Vapor I Sg in the snow, the colour suits well as the colour is ice white!

2. Nike Mercurial Vapor I Fg chrome/lime! Propably one of the rarest Nike football boots to get your hands on!

  Limited to 4600 pairs globally. Also this left boot got more mirror effect and signed by @ronaldolima ! 👊🏻 The chrome/lime were released back in 2002 and worn by @ronaldolima in the Final of FIFA World Cup Japan & South Korea, Brazil winning Germany 2-0, both goals scored by Ronaldo! 🇧🇷

7. Top10 Pickups of 2015

  
Top10 Pickups of 2015! #top10pickups 7. Nike Mercurial Vapor III 2006 Fg Brazil Edition. Another great colour combo by @nikefootball 👌🏻 Released back in 2006, represented Brazil with @ronaldolima as striker. Ronaldo “9” scored his last World Cup goals in this colourway in Germany. 🇧🇷

  
What I know these are not limited edition but certainly one of the hardest boots to find in Fg-soleplate.
