This image shows the orange next-gen Nike Mercurial Vapor 12 2018 launch colorway.



The next-gen Nike Mercurial football boots are designed to shows off what the silo is all about - speed. The orange Nike Mercurial launch edition features unique 'speed' Swooshes and the Mercurial M logo with the lettering Engineered for Speed on the outstep rear.



Tech-wise, the Nike Mercurial Vapor 12 Elite football boots are almost identical to the Superfly VI, as mentioned on this site before. Both share most features, including the Flyknit upper, 3-D upper structure and speed-influenced traction, with the only major difference being the shorter collar on the Vapor.



At the moment, we expect the 'Total Orange' next-gen Nike Mercurial Vapor XII cleats to be released in late February, with the secondary black colorway following slightly later. The RRP of the most advanced version, the Vapor XII Elite is USD 250 (EUR 240, GBP 190). The lower-tier models of the Nike Mercurial Vapor 12 boots will be called Mercurial Vapor XII Pro, Mercurial Vapor XII Academy & Mercurial Vapor XII Club.
