Updated: Jun 16, 2022

Nike begin their World Cup 2018 preparations by celebrating the heritage of the Nike Mercurial series with a collection of iconic World Cup designs. Using the NikeiD division, they have created the perfect collectors boots inpired by the World Cup years 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010 & 2014.

Made into the new iconic new-generation of the Nike Mercurial Superfly 12 and Vapor 12 360 Elite editions which incorporate all sorts of modern technology but also with a massive sense of nostalgia.

The showpiece Nike Mercurials represent each of the past five World Cups and are transformed via NikeiD into modern day designs as Nike pay tribute to 20 years of the Mercurial. Dropping in both the Vapor and Superfly silhouettes, the Mercurial Heritage Collection also represent the legends that have worn the series at previous World Cup tournaments – from France in 1998 to Brazil in 2014 -to be worn by the current stars expected to shine in the Russia World Cup 2018.

Nike have picked the players to wear each specific boot depending on their nationality, and which nation won the World Cup that year. For example, Mbappe is wearing the 1998 Nike Mercurial football boot as France won the tournament in 1998 and Sane is wearing 2014 colorway because Germany won the tournament in Brazil.

Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele (France) are wearing the 1998 edition, Philippe Coutinho (Brazillian) is wearing the 2002 design, Italy's Federico Chiesa is wearing the yellow 2006 edition, Real Madrid's Marco Asensio received the 2010 edition, while Leroy Sane is sporting the 2014 colorway.
