Nike Mercurial Vapor IX 06M R9 Samba Yellow UK FG
Comes with original bootbag and box (not UK8).
Nike latest colourway, for the current lightweight boot, draws inspiration from one of the most iconic boots in recent history. The resemblance is striking, with the yellow main upper colour and green heel. It is made as a tribute to one of the biggest stars ever to have played, which is Luis Ronaldo, R9, or the “real” Ronaldo. We find many names for those we love.
The original version of this football boot was the Nike Mercurial Vapor III. This colour combination was, as you probably easily guessed, made to honour the Brazilian colours; yellow and green. But apart from being a tribute to Ronaldo’s motherland, the boot was also a lot more visible, which was definitely a conscious decision.
It was in a pair of yellow and green Nike Mercurial Vapor III that Ronaldo broke the all-time World Cup scoring record. On the 27th of June, the fans at the FIFA WM Stadion in Dortmund witnessed a piece of football history, when Ronaldo scored against Ghana. It was Ronaldo’s 15.(!) goal at a World Cup Tournament, meaning he beat Gerd Müller as the most scoring player in World Cup history. It was however Ronaldo’ last World Cup goal, as Brazil crashed out again, with France once more besting them.
