Chelsea’s star midfielder Eden Hazard is back in training, and the Belgian’s much-anticipated return to pitch coincides with the debut of the all-new Nike Mercurial Ultra Flyknit Vapor.
This is fitting, given that the evolution of the Nike Mercurial and emergence of unique aesthetics in football boots has paralleled Hazard’s career highlights.
“I’ve played with Mercurials for 15 years, and they have always been good. There hasn’t been a colorway I didn’t like,” he says. “I actually haven’t had a lot of bad moments in my career — only good memories.”
There will be 2,500 pairs of the limited-edition Nike Mercurial Ultra Flyknit Vapor available in triple-black, and 1,500 pairs available in a black/metallic gold colourway on nike.com and at select retailers.
