Jordon Ibe Switches to Nike Mercurial Vapor X Boots

Liverpool FC youngster Jordon Ibe has become the next player to switch from the Nike Hypervenom Boots to the Nike Mercurial Vapor X Cleats, joining various high-profile players such as Neymar, Isco and Aubameyang.

Interestingly, Jordon Ibe was the first professional to lace up in the next-gen Nike Hypervenom Phantom 2 Boot in mid-May 2015, while he switched to low-cut Nike Hypervenom Phinish Boots in late August 2015.

Jordon Ibe uses a non-modified version of the Squadron Blue Nike Mercurial Vapor 10 Cleats, which were released in late September 2015. The Nike Mercurial Vapor X Boots are engineered for speed with a ultra-thin Teijin microfiber upper while providing ultimate lockdown with a tongue-less design.

Ibe was subbed on in the 83th minute in the Premier League match against Southampton on Sunday. One week ago, when he played three minutes in the 0-0 draw against Tottenham, the 19-year old striker still laced up in the Hyper Grape Nike Hypervenom Phinish Boots.

Isco, Kovačić, Neymar, Mandžukić, Aubameyang and now Jordon Ibe. The list of players switching from the Nike Hypervenom to the Nike Mercurial Boots is getting endless. Do you have any idea what's going on here? Let us know in the comments section below.
