New addition to my collection, Nike Mercurial Vapor SL E08! Nike released for a special edition of Mercurial Vapor, T90 Shoot and Tiempo for the Euro 2008 championship. This pair right here though is the SL (Super Light) model of the Mercurial Vapor with a carbon fiber soleplate that was never released for public. This particular boot is very rare to find and often they were match worn or issued for proffesional players only.
So here is the boots so far:

New addition! I sold my used pair and bought a pair in BNIB. Nike Mercurial SL Fg 1059 of 2008 pairs made!
Nike wanted to create the lightest and fastest boot in history. Nike spent 3 years creating a boot with no financial- or time limitations. In 2008 Nike released the Nike Mercurial SL (Super Light), weihged 190 grams. The boot is almost entirely made of carbon fibre with a soleplate made of 7 layer carbon material, this to give strenght and flexibility.
One of the best looking boots in history!
These don’t come by too often, Nike Mercurial Vapor SL Euro 2008! Never a public release, were only made for professional. Nothing beats a black leather boot with blue soleplate and some carbon-fibre 👌🏻
I bought these froma friend of mine in Canada few years ago, before that I had been after these since 2008. I used to have the public version of these before I bought the professional model.
Harder and harder to get hold of them!
These were the most revolutionary boots back in 2008. The boots are made almost entirely from carbon fiber. The upper is made of a single piece of carbon fiber, then the seven-layer outsole plate made of carbon together with TPU and polyurethane giving maximum flexibility and speed for the boot. All this gives us a boot wight of 190g. This is why the are called SL, “Super Light”.
They were 2508 pairs made, 2008 pairs in FG and 500 in SG!
Here’s my pair:
