Nike x Virgil Abloh Off-White Mercurial Vapor 360 Boots Released
Nike and Virgil Abloh today launched a new limited edition Mercurial football boot. The Nike Mercurial Vapor 360 x Virgil Abloh soccer cleat is the first-ever football boot designed by Virgil Abloh, part of the new Nike Football x Off-White collaboration..
Nike and Abloh have teamed up with French superstar Kylian Mbappé who's going to wear the boot in a Superfly version. Nike is only going to sell the Mercurial Vapor 360 x Virgil Abloh in a Vapor version, so the Superfly of Mbappé is the only one out there!
Nike x Off-White Mercurial Vapor 12 Elite - Total Orange / White
This picture shows the Nike Mercurial Vapor 360 Off-White soccer cleats.
Inspired by the debut colorway as well as Nike and Virgil Abloh's 'The Ten' sneaker collection, the Off-White Mercurial Vapor XII Elite football boots are orange with white brandings and Abloh's signature text quotes - including "LOGO, "KNIT" and "FAST AF."
“For this Mercurial, I was interested in bridging the gap between foot and eye coordination,” says Abloh. “All the dots on the boot represent an optimal place to strike the ball.”
“In my approach, I thought about what it would be like if I saw someone wearing the boot,” says Abloh, who assumed a stopper role during his high school playing days. “Design is a powerful tool, as it communicates energy and a message, and it offers a unique capacity to make someone do a double take on-pitch — I feel like it would be intimidating to see this boot.”
