Closer Look: Alvaro Pereira's Custom Nike Mercurial Vapor

Paraguayan artist Lili Cantero, who already painted custom boots for a number of South American players including Derlis González, has created a pair of one-of-a-kind Nike Mercurial Vapor 10 boots for Uruguay's Alvaro Pereira.

Alvaro Pereira's Custom Nike Mercurial Vapor X - Inspired by Uruguay

Based on the simplistic silhouette of the Nike Mercurial Vapor X, Alvaro Pereira's custom boots feature an all-over graphic inspired by the Uruguayan flag. Gold details commemorate the design, while Pereira's name is written on the heel.

It's not yet clear whether the cleats will be worn in an official game, but if Alvaro's recent boot history is anything to go by, he sure does like an unusual pair of footwear.
