Want.

There are certain football boots that instantly take you back to a certain era from the past.

People will always associate the adidas Predator Mania, for example, with Zinedine Zidane’s Champions League final winner against Bayer Leverkusen or David Beckham breaking his metatarsal bone before the 2002 World Cup.

Similarly, one can’t look at the Nike Mercurial Vapor and not think of the 1998 World Cup and specifically, of Brazilian Ronaldo lighting up the tournament before the controversial events of the final.

The many, many people who adored that boot will be glad to know that Nike have released a new limited edition of it.

Or, to be exact, they’ve made the colourways so commonly associated with 1998 available on their new Mercurial Superfly boot for the first time.

As a result, boot lovers can combine the classic look of the original Mercurial Vapor with the modern technology of the Mercurial Superfly and the end result, we think you’ll agree is pretty impressive.
