Nike Mercurial Vapor SL E08 Fg

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. 

My pair is worn by Blerim DΕΎemaili who is playing in the Swiss national team and as midfielder at Bologna. I own another pair of these boots that is coming for sale.

These are definitely in my top 10 best boots! Nothing beats a Mercurial boot in black leather with a touch of blue colour and a carbon fiber soleplate!

Nike Mercurial SL Fg

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.

It was released in FG-soleplate limited to 2008 pairs and in SG-soleplate limited to 500 pairs. 

One of the best looking boots in history!


Puma SL Classico Fg

New addition to my collection! Puma SL Classico Fg limited to 2001 pairs in world! A classy looking boot and when it first came out last year I knew I need to buy these some day. I bought them as brand new for Β£48 😁  

Nike Mercurial Vapor SL E08 Fg

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 πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
 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!


Nike Mercurial Vapor IV SL E08

These vapors were released during Euro 2008 and are made in leather. Pair I’m showing is not a public released boot as it’s a SL model, with carbon fibre soleplate! This model was only used by some of the proffesionals during Euro 2008 tournament! 


Nike Mercurial Vapor SL

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:
