Nike Mercurial Vapor XIII Elite FG

For players demanding lightweight lockdown for rapid cuts and directional changes, the Nike Mercurial Vapor XIII Elite FG football boots have a Flyknit upper to create a close, secure feel on the foot.
The Nike Mercurial Vapor XIII Elite FG football boots enhance fit, responsiveness on the pitch and feel even lighter on foot than ever before, providing the Mercurial player with everything they need to dominate on the pitch. Lighter and stronger than the materials used on the previous version, the Flyknit upper on this Mercurial Vapor is constructed from a high-tenacity yarn. The result is an upper that’s extremely lightweight and supremely soft, helping to reduce break-in time as the high tenacity yarn wraps around the foot for a true one-to-one fit. Created to produce a 3D micro texture on the upper for increased feel on the ball, the Flyknit is applied with the thinnest application of NIKESKIN to date, providing Erling Haaland and Eden Hazard with minimal distraction between the foot and ball while travelling at high speeds for precise control. To enable consistent levels of feel and touch in either dry or wet weather conditions, a coating of All Conditions Control (ACC) is applied to the NIKESKIN. For added comfort around the foot, the perforations around the heel have been redesigned for increased comfort and lockdown, while the internal lining that wraps around your foot had been perforated to provide breathability like no other Mercurial before. The lightweight forefoot plate features a Nike Aerow Trac zone with micro grooves, which delivers more snap in the plate for better responsiveness off the mark. Angular chevron shaped studs combined with a stiffer internal chassis ensure explosive acceleration.

Boot Class = Elite

The best of the best. Elite football boots are the boots professional players wear on-pitch, made using the highest quality materials and featuring the latest technologies and innovations. The premium option for players who demand the best possible performance from their boots.

Mercurial Vapor

Destroying defences since 1998, the all-conquering Nike Mercurial is the Swoosh’s flagship speed boot.

It began with the prime example of explosive pace: R9, Ronaldo. His OG signature boot, the Nike Mercurial R9, was created to make him – and anyone else that wore it – faster. Its lightweight, synthetic construction set the trend for boot design, and the same superfast concept lives on in today’s modern Mercs.

From the iconic Vapor I to the gamechanging Superfly IV and the much sought-after Vapor Flyknit Ultra, the Mercurial series counts some of the most popular boots of all time among its ranks. They’ve been worn by some of the world’s best players, too, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard, Ada Hegerberg, and Didier Drogba joining R9 in the Mercurial hall of fame.

If you’re new to the Mercurial, here’s the vital thing to know: there are now two main variations. The Vapor, which is a low-cut boot, and the Superfly, which has an ankle collar. Some players prefer the more traditional, streamlined fit of the Vapor, while others appreciate the additional support and sock-like feel provided by the Superfly. It’s a personal choice.

Nike tend to debut their most cutting-edge tech in the Merc, so whichever you choose, if you want the fastest boots with a Swoosh that money can buy, you’re in the right place.

Nike

Nike’s mission is “to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world”. For decades, their boots have done exactly that, being seen on the feet of amateur and professional players alike, all around the globe.

Starting with “The Nike” back in 1970, the Swoosh’s designs have always led the way when it comes to combining style and performance.

Their modern range includes the ever-popular Mercurial for speed, as worn by the legend that is Cristiano Ronaldo, along with the touch-focused Phantom. Or, if you prefer a classic boot, the more traditional Tiempo and Premier are your go-to options.

Nike offer boots for all types of surface and levels of play, including their exclusive Anti-Clog editions with soleplates designed specifically for wet, muddy pitches.

Ground Type Guide

Selecting the correct sole plate for the surface you are playing on is crucial, not only for the performance and longevity of your football boots, but also to avoid the risk of injury.


Using an outsole that isn't designed specifically for the surface on which you are playing may cause premature wear and/or damage that will not be deemed as a fault of manufacture and will prevent the retailer accepting them for a refund or exchange.


Firm Ground

Boots with Firm Ground soleplates are only to be used on natural, short-grass surfaces that are firm underfoot but may be slightly wet. Designed specifically for this playing surface, they offer acceleration, comfort, and enhanced traction, dispersing stud pressure evenly across the foot. FG soleplates are fixed (not removable) and are used worldwide; wetter countries tend to use them spring to autumn. FG boots are not to be used on artificial ground (AG) surfaces as the construction is not designed for the extra friction. Using FG boots on AG surfaces will invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
