The beauty and diversity of Brazil is one story that is grabbing headlines leading up to the 2014 World Cup with brands taking inspiration from all things Brazil in designing their product lines.  Nike is no exception and unveiled the new limited Mercurial Tropical pack on Thursday.

Tropical_green_sideTropical_green_topTropical_green_bottomThe cleat line-up has 3 colorways with the pattern taking inspiration from the Amazon jungle.  The design on all 3 cleats is the same with only the color different.  The Amazon is the most biodiverse tropical rainforest in the world with the majority of it in Brazil.  The rainforest is home to an amazing array of colors, sounds, plants, and animals.

Tropical_blueThe tropical print is digitally applied to the cleat so as not to compromise the All Conditions Control (ACC) of the cleat.

The 3 colorways are “Flash Green”, “Laser Orange”, and “Hyper Turquoise”.  There are only 2,500 pairs of each cleat being produced so they will go fast.

What do you think of the new Nike Mercurial Vapor IX?  Do you want a pair?
