This draft shows the Nike Mercurial Vapor 12 World Cup edition.

Dropping the trademark toebox Swoosh placement of the regular paint jobs in favor of a lateral one - just like on the recent Neymar signature editions - the Nike Mercurial Vapor 12 Elite 2018 World Cup boots are predominantly white. The 'M' branding on the heel is also dropped for the white Nike Mercurial Vapor XII 2018 World Cup cleats.

Silver metallic brandings and orange and purple details complete the design which features a bold, iridescent sole plate finish.

Identical to the Superfly 6 apart from the lower collar, the Nike Mercurial Vapor 12 Elite boots are the first of their kind to feature a one-piece all-Flyknit upper. Other key features include the 360° Flyknit construction that wraps around the foot and the split sole plate.

  • One-piece Flyknit upper
