Next-Gen Nike Mercurial Vapor XIII Elite Debut Boots Leaked - Official Pictures

Update: Official pictures of the Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 Elite boots have been leaked, while we can also confirm that this debut edition will drop later this month.

Nike 'New Lights' Pack

Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 - Blue Hero / White / Blue Hero

This is the debut colorway of the next-gen Nike Mercurial Vapor XIII cleat.

The next-gen Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 and Superfly 7 debut boots are predominantly 'blue hero' with white-iridescent brandings.

Brandings - there are lots of them all across the upper of the two new Nike Mercurial boots. There's a large Swoosh on the outside, as well as a cropped 'Mercurial' writing, another small Swoosh towards the heel. On the inside is a large 'Just Do It' print, together with another Swoosh and a 'Merc' branding above it. Another Swoosh sits on the toebox.

Tech-wise, it's a smaller step from the previous generation as usual with the Nike Mercurial. The Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 football boots have a one-piece Flyknit construction with added NikeSkin for improved durability and control.

It appears as though the sole plate hasn't been changed at all from the Nike Mercurial Vapor 12.
