Isco Back in Hypervenoms Ahead of El Clásico

It seems that Isco's switch to the Nike Mercurial Vapor isn't quite a done deal yet, following the player's training outings in the week building up to El Clásico.

After the Real Madrid playmaker debuted the Squadron Blue Nike Mercurial Vapor X football boots in the Champions League last month, he was seen wearing non-modified Nike Hypervenom Phinish cleats in training this week.

Isco Trains in Nike Hypervenom Phinish Boots

The Nike Hypervenom Phinish soccer cleats worn by Isco Alarcón in this week's Real Madrid training sessions appear to be the standard model without extensive modifications.

Whereas Barcelona star Neymar has received camouflaged Mercurial Vapor boots that only looks like Hypervenoms, Isco's new boots feature all the characteristics of the default version. This is evidenced by close-ups of the noticeably molded upper and the agility sole plate.

Isco's 'boot saga' started when the player, who originally sported the top-tier Nike Hypervenom Phantom II since the start of the season, began to wear modified boots with the trademark Dynamic Fit collar simply cut off. He later switched to the low-cut Nike Hypervenom Phinish and even later to the totally different Nike Mercurial Vapor X.
