      Nike Mercurial Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt/Tide Pool Blue - check it out

      Finally the wait is over and we can now unveil the brand new Nike Mercurial Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt/Tide Pool Blue. It has been spotted at many of the international training sessions going on at the moment, with players from the English national team, the Danish and German all being seen wearing it. It could very well get its début on the biggest scenes, but before that we take a closer look at Eriksen's, Götze's and Cristiano Ronaldo's new boot.

      The ninth generation of the progressively more and more legendary Mercurial-collection has stormed into the lead, as the undisputed most popular speed boot. With its just 185 grams it weighs less than most, but Nike have still been very good at innovating and improving the boot, with new revolutionising technologies like SpeedControl and ACC.

      Nike Mercurial Vapor IX is known for being a boot for players who are not scared of a little on field attention. Players who dare take the cheeky touch and the player who never shies away from the ball. It is also a boot for the player, who prefers the very imposing and prominent colourways, as the newest incarnation continues in the same colourful and flamboyant vein as its predecessors. It is only the Vapor IX that could make sky blue, neon yellow and pink look good.

      Nike Mercurial Vapor IX is very much alike the previous Mercurial boot, but in the update process there has been straightened a few things out, as well as, there having been added things hither and dither. It is all small details, but when all these small improvements add up, they make a huge difference. On top of the obvious and big design update, the upper and outsole has also seen distinct change.

      The upper has, as mentioned, seen a very apparent change and this can be seen by the small indentations, which cover the entire upper. It is a technology, which Nike calls Speed Control and as the name insinuates, it helps to control the ball, especially when travelling at high speed.

      The eternal struggle with the weather gods can easily have a negative impact on your ability to grip the ball in wet weather conditions. This is something Nike have found a solution for and that is called ACC. It stands for All Conditions Control and it is a revolutionising technology, which has been incorporated into the upper during production. It means you get the same grip in the ball, when playing in the rain, as you would otherwise have in dry conditions. In other words, it gives you Control in All Conditions. Does it work?

      As mentioned previously, the outsole has also seen some changes when compared to the Vapor VIII; here, Nike used to use a double layer of fibreglass underneath the midfoot and a single layer covering the rest of foot. This is something they have chosen to change and now it has a full double layer sole, which gives better responsiveness and flexibility.

      The stud-configuration we are looking at here, is from the FG-model, but the Nike Mercurial Vapor IX ACC Neptune Blue/Volt/Tide Pool Blue also lands as an SG-pro and AG version. The classic FG stud-configuration is however in many cases irresistible, as it is nothing short of revolutionising. With just two studs on the heel, you penetrate the ground much quicker, which gives you the explosive speed, which the boot boasts.
