Better Pictures: Black / Gold Nike Mercurial Erling Haaland 'Golden Boy 2020' Football Boots Revealed

The new Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 Elite 'Golden Boy 2020' soccer boots were officially unveiled yesterday by Dortmund's top scorer as he fiercely returned from a torn muscle fibre that sidelined him for 28 days (Dec 1, 2020 until Dec 28, 2020). Haaland's presence immediately helped BVB (2-0) against VfL Wolfsburg.

Haaland's new Mercurial Vapor XIII Elite football shoes were mostly designed with Nike's "Nike By You" service that gives everybody the possibility to create their very own colourways of the 'speed' silo, while still retaining the premium features. As far as the inspiration goes, they are simply inspired by the golden year Erling Braut Håland has had since he won the 2020 Golden Boy award.

Check out the new Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 soccer cleats in black / golden below.

Mainly black, the new Nike Mercurial Vapor XIII Elite 'Golden Boy 2020' boots feature several customizations that are only possible with the "Nike By You" service. For one, there is a golden Swoosh on the outstep and inside. The outsole also features golden parts in the front and back. Otherwise, his new shoes are completely black.

There are several subtle details such as his last names Braut and Håland. There is also the golden writing 'GULL GUTT' on each heel with the date 14-12-2020 to further solidify the inspiration within the design. Norway's flag is on the tongue. These two features are not possible with "Nike By You".

Tech-wise, the new Mercurial Vapor XIII Elite 'Golden Boy 2020' soccer cleats from Nike are identical to the inaugural edition except for the metallic studs.
