Made with at least 50% recycled content by weight, the Mercurial Vapor Next Nature takes an iconic football boot and reimagines what it means to help make players better while also helping to protect the planet and the future of sport.
The Mercurial Vapor Next Nature features a 100% recycled midsole plate and a four-layer upper that includes Flyprint, recycled polyester, recycled TPU and manufacturing scrap.
This combo bucks the idea that only virgin materials can help contain and propel the world’s best footballers. The boot’s chassis, the heel counter, the midsole plate and the boot’s upper are made with 100% recycled materials from manufacturing waste.
Since the Vapor’s debut in 1998, Nike has consistently innovated the boot to serve the future of athletes and sport. Releases pushed the envelope in materials, technology, and now, sustainable design.
