This version of the Mercurial IX honors the cleat that Ronaldo wore in 2002. Engineered for uncompromising explosive speed in every direction, the Mercurial Vapor IX Volt/Black/Bright Citrus has a new composite chassis, textured body and a more contoured fit for the ultimate traction and control in any condition.
A soft, micro-textured Tejin upper molds to the foot for high-speed control. It doesn't matter if you can go fast if you can't control the ball. The textured dot pattern on the Vapor IX's upper increases the friction between cleat and ball, resulting an enhanced touch without sacrificing the second-skin fit.
The fastest cleat in the game is now equipped with All Conditions Control (ACC) technology for optimal ball control in wet or dry conditions.
The lightweight perforated sockliner has a textile liner that mirrors the natural shape of the foot for low profile cushioning.
Contoured last further enhances the glove-like fit.
Two-layers of glass fiber are fused together on the outsole for flexibility and responsiveness. Composite and direct injected TPU studs dig and release instantly for exceptional traction and explosive speed.
With two longer studs on the heel and asymmetrical bladed forefoot stud design, the Vapor IX outsole delivers not just straight-ahead speed, but the traction for quick cuts and turns and explosive take off.
