Lovell Rugby Reviews – Nike Vapor VII Boots
Lovell Rugby was pleased this week to review the Brand New Nike Vapor 7 Boot which was Recently launched. A very highly anticipated boot release, The next generation Vapor boots have arrived and are one of the most unique yet. The vapour which before the Superfly was Nike’s orginal pinacle speed boot weighing in at just 230grams (US size 9).
Visually, the new Vapor football boots have undergone the same new paint work as the Superfly III boots and now feature the updated asymmetric, fluorescent lightning bolt design on the heel and inside of the boot. The new Vapor Boots are Nike’s most visible Vapor yet.
One of the key differences of the new Nike Vapor 7 football boots is the removal of the lace-cover. The lace-cover, that has featured on the Vapor series since the iconic Mercurial Vapor IV.
The upper is constructed from the same Tejin micro-fibre that is designed to improve comfort and flexibilty. The Vapor has been the boot of choice of Northampton and England Wing Chris Ashton and Bulls and South Africa Fly Half Morne Steyn.
One of the Vapor’s stand-out features is still present on the Nike Vapor 7 football boots. The Tepex glass-fibre chassis, that has become a Vapor favourite, brings you close to the Vapor’s enhanced traction elements. The Vapor Traction II design means the forefoot studs are shaped to offer multi-directional traction, with central arms for acceleration/deceleration and optimal sprint traction.
The Vapor 7′s sole-plate includes the same direct injected studs that incorporates 8 cored-out studs to provide a dramatic 12% weight reduction whilst enhancing strength and durability. Acceleration and sprinting is further enhanced by concentrated forefoot zonal spikes, inspired by tracks spikes to optimise grip at toe-off for an extra burst of speed, giving you an advantage over the opposition.
