Black & Iridescent Metallic Next-Gen Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 'Under the Radar' Boots Leaked

Following up the colorful debut edition, Nike will release a more understated colorway for the next-gen Mercurial Vapor 13 boots as well. Part of the 'Under the Radar' pack, these Nike Mercurial Vapor XIII cleats combine a black base with iridescent-metallic brandings.

Please keep in mind that our image is a simple draft of the debut colorway design that's slightly inaccurate in parts and also does not completely represent the Vapor XIII in its final form - although there isn't much of a difference between 12 and 13 in terms of materials and shape.

Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 - Black / Iridescent Metallic

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

The next-gen Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 and Superfly 7 'Under the Radar' boots are black with iridescent-metallic brandings.

Brandings - there are lots of them all across the upper of the 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.
