Nike Mercurial Vapors are a style of soccer cleats. Retailing for £260 U.S. as of 2011, Mercurial Vapors are notable for their self-adjusting studs, which the company claims provide superior traction. Nike states that the shoes' "flyware technology" renders them lighter and stronger than previous soccer shoes. Because of the exclusivity and price of Nike Mercurial Vapors, cleaning them properly is important. Luckily, no special or expensive tools are required to keep your Nike Mercurial Vapors looking like new.
