Football boot releases: Nike launch the 2014 Mercurial Vapor IX Fast Forward ’06 (as well as SS14 collection)



It’s Friday! So are celebrating in the only way we know how: showing off some new football boots!

In 2006, Brasil forward Ronaldo returned to football’s world stage debuting Nike’s latest boot technology.

Featuring the first carbon fibre heel-counter and a new high-visibility colour, the 2006 Mercurial Vapor was built for speed and comfort.




The ‘06 Mercurial, the 2014 Mercurial Vapor IX Fast Forward ’06 provides today’s players with modern boot technology inspired by visual elements of the 2006 classic.



Subtle graphic references and colours combine with modern materials and innovation to celebrate the boot’s legacy of speed while commemorating an iconic summer for Ronaldo and the Mercurial.


A small heel logo mark identifies the original year of inspiration, and the sockliner tells the story of key moments in the Mercurial’s history.




In addition to the Mercurial, Nike also introduces new colourways for summer 2014.




The CTR360 2 will be offered in a striking crimson; the Tiempo V in a shade of crimson with white; and the Hypervenom in vibrant yellow.




The Mercurial Vapor IX Fast Forward ’06 Edition and Nike’s Summer 2014 collection are available at
