The Nike Mercurial Vapor is hands down one of the most iconic football boots on the market. A silhouette that has written generations of lightweight innovation, and a design that features on every pitch, at every level, every week. But, most importantly, it's a silo that never stands still.

Nike have always spearheaded the Vapor into new realms of lightweight speed technology, and we're seeing more evidence of that as two stunning renditions of the Nike Mercurial Vapor Flyknit Ultra join the party. The all-new Vapor version launched in September when the Swoosh dropped a limited edition run of gold and black designs, but we all knew that wasn't the last we would see of the Flyknit Ultra, and now it returns.

Mercurial Vapor Flyknit Ultra features a Flyknit collared design for a harnessed feel once the foot is inside – a technology that we've seen successfully executed on the lo-cut Hypervenom 3 and Tiempo 7. Dropping in two options to complement the recent Nike Fire & Ice Pack, the Vapor Flyknit Ultra throws around blue and red swooshes with corresponding chrome soleplates for a premium finish.

The Flyknit charge has transformed the way Nike are creating their football boot collection as the Swoosh aim to produce the most customisable fit possible on their full silo line-up. Eden Hazard has already represented the Flyknit Ultra on the Premier League scene, and with two new colourways wrapping themselves around such a progressive move in Nike's Vapor timeline, we're expecting more players to follow suit.
