Clayton Donaldson Laces Up in Nike Mercurial Vapor 2 R9 Football Boots

Clayton Donaldson wore a non-modified version of Nike's stunning silver and blue boots that were originally released for Brazilian superstar Ronaldo several years ago.

Released in 2004, the Nike Mercurial Vapor II boot was all about speed and comfort to realize the goal of a perfect foot-to-ground feel. Weighing in at around 200 gram, the boot also stood out on the feet of emerging star Cristiano Ronaldo (who started wearing the Mercurial in his early-teens), who would soon become the face of the silo.
