NEWEST FROM NIKE





This week, Landon Donovan is sporting the very latest from Bruno and the other Nike bootmakers in Treviso. (Incidentally, it must be like Christmas every year when the players arrive in camp and find a big box of boots waiting for them.). We present the Nike Mercurial Vapor IV in Orange Peel/Dark Obsidian. For those of you into specs:



The Mercurial Vapor IV has been designed with one thing in mind: pure speed. Worn by the world's deadliest players, every contour and feature has been engineered to the highest Aerodynamic specifications. Strong, light and packed with innovation, it’s a revolutionary boot to strike fear into opponents and leave rivals in its wake. Weighing just over eight ounces, The Mercurial Vapor IV is one of the lightest boots in production.The Fiber-composite sole and patented Vapor Traction System offers improved traction and comfort. The sleek, streamlined lace-cover tongue-top helps accuracy and enhances touch. An injected TPU heel wrap with glass-fiberinsert and lateral heel pods provide extra strength and protection. The Molded E.V.A. sock-liner cushions impact at high speed.


And for those of you who just like to watch really cool stuff, check out this commercial with Cristiano Ronaldo racing a race car. Incidentally, Ronaldo wore the boots for the first time this past weekend when Man U played Newcastle - he scored a hat trick and Man U won 6 - 0. . .

Haha great video, but my favorite will always be the Ronaldinho: Touch of Gold video.

What a load of crap. Aerodynamics matter in a sport like cycling... Ronaldo's hair causes more wind resistance than anything on his shoes... let's not even talk about the shorts or jersey. Jeez.

Guess Nike has to get their product placement in there....

Yes Ronaldo was wearing these boots on the weekend, but I remember him going to the sidelines for different ones during the game. Pato was also wearing these in his debut for Milan.

The marketing department at Nike must be the best in the world.
