Customer Reviews for Nike Mercurial Vapor IX FG - Men's

Nike Mercurial Vapor IX FG - Men's

You might have thought the Mercurial was as fast as it could be. Unfortunately for defenders, you were wrong. The Nike Mercurial Vapor IX is back, with even more lightweight speed. The Teijin upper includes speed control technology, with a texture you can see and feel. This provides the optimal control in all conditions, because there's no time for second-guessing in this game. The contoured last delivers a glove-like fit that is complimented by a light, perforated sockliner and textile top cloth. These mirror the foot's natural shape for low-profile cushioning. Underneath, the outsole is two layers of glass composite holding direct-inject TPU studs that are built for extreme comfort and acceleration on firm, natural surfaces. Twin heel studs provide ground penetration and stability. Wt. 6.8 oz.

I had 2 pairs of the Mercurial IIIX which both lasted me 3 years of heavy use in Ultimate Frisbee on both firm ground (3x a week), indoor turf (2x a week), and in wet conditions. I've worn this pair of IX's only 4 month, with light use (once a week in door) and the studs are starting to break already. One has already fallen off on the outside of the ball of my right foot. It took 3 years for the studs to break with the IIIX's. The break-in process lasted a bit longer, about a month, than the IIIX's too but still short compared to other types of synthetics. The change in the toe box has caused both of my big toe nails to fall off, so I recommend going up at least a half size if that's a normal problem for you.
Pros: lightweight, great ball feel
Cons: runs narrow, runs small, non-durable

So far its a great fit, comfortable, and light weight, which is a great quality. Besides that, I haven't use the product yet, the NFL combine is this coming Saturday, 03/02/13 at the Jets Health Center facility. After the day, I'll be able to elaborate on it a little bit more.
Pros: lightweight
