Revealed: Cheap Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Pro Is Hidden Successor Of Discontinued Synthetic Nike Mercurial Vapor XI

When Nike released the all-new Nike Mercurial 360 football boot, the Swoosh got rid of the famous Teijin material upper for the Nike Mercurial Vapor 360, replacing it with Flyknit. However, meanwhile people discovered that there is still a boot that is almost identical to the discontinued Nike Mercurial Vapor XI - the second-tier Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Pro. We take a closer look at the 'hidden synthetic Nike Mercurial Vapor XII football boots' (Thanks to @PedroMayo25 for the hint).

The visual design of the Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Pro soccer boot is almost the same as the design of the high-end Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Elite model, with the only small differences such as the studs collar and the finishing of each color.



Tech-wise, the Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Pro football boot does not feature the Flyknit upper as the all-new Nike Mercurial Vapor 360 football boot but a 'micro-textured, premium synthetic upper', which is actually just Nike's famous Teijin material (even though it is not called so - used for the discontinued Nike Mercurial Vapor XI).



What might be also surprising is that the plate design of the second-tier Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Pro is very similar as the one of the high-end Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Elite.
