Kovacic Switches To Nike Mercurial Vapor X Boots

This was a big surprise this evening. Mateo Kovačić today debuted the Hyper Pink Nike Mercurial Vapor 10 Boots after he cut off the Dynamic Fit collar of his Nike Hypervenom Phantom II Boots in early August 2015.

New Real Madrid midfielder Kovačić was subbed in the 70th minute for Isco in Real Madrid's first league match of the season against promoted team Sporting Gijon to make his debut for the Whites.

Mateo Kovačić wore a non-modified version of the Hyper Pink Nike Mercurial Vapor 10 Soccer Cleats, which were released in July 2015.

Made for speed, the Nike Mercurial Vapor 10 Boots might not be the perfect boot for a central midfielder. However, he joins his teammate Luka Modric, who is also famous for wearing the Nike Mercurial Vapor 10 Boots instead of the Nike's control boot, the Nike Magista. In fact, Kovacic laced up in Nike Magista Obra Boots until late February 2015.

Last week, we reported that Mateo Kovačić cut off the trademark Dynamic Fit collar of the Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Cleats, similar to various high-profile players including Isco. It now looks like that Kovačić opted for the Nike Mercurial Vapor Football Boots instead of the Nike Hypervenom.

Kovacic had problems with the Dynamic Fit collar, so he switched to the traditional low-cut Nike Mercurial Boots. What do you think of Kovacic's surprising boot choice? Let us know in the comments below.
