On 17th November it was the Nike Mercurial Vapor Berry. 24 days later, the Vapor Citron made it’s bow, en masse, across a bunch of Champions League games.

And now, here are the latest Vapor colourway which will be available in the UK in early February, but you can pre order now through the FSC Shop and if you are based in North America, get yours here.

The new predominantly charcoal colourway for the Nike Mercurial Vapor IV has already been a great hit with the professionals. Top players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Frank Ribery are displaying their sheer skill and speed that will strike fear into many defences with this trendy dynamic boot.

French international Franck Ribery starred in a viral video promoting them and Arsenal striker Niklas Bendtner debuted them in the Premier League before professing that he’d always dreamed of playing in pink football boots.

But has Bendtner’s dream already died and has Franck Ribery followed him by ditching the very product he was pushing just a couple of weeks ago?

Both players decided to turn out in the new Vapor colourway, the Citron as it made its Champions League bow across Europe this week, used by a host of top stars including the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Adriano. Cristiano Ronaldo has also trialled the new colourway during a Manchester United training session.

The Citron colourway is available for delivery early next year from 12/01/2009 and the SL version in February. You can pre-order the Mercurial Vapor Citron in the FSC shop while our visitors from North America will be able to buy them here

Nike released the Nike Mercurial Vapor IV Berry. This limited edition football boot will be available from 24th November, retailing at £119.99. However, they're selling 'like hotcakes' at the moment, and being a limited edition model you may want to pre-order the boot to avoid disappointment.

What can we say about this new Nike football boot? Well, they're pink for a start, and much talked about at the moment.

There’s no doubt that the Mercurial Vapor has become one of the game’s most successful football boot since it was first launched 10 years ago, having originally been designed for the Brazilian star Ronaldo. In the Premier League they have been worn to great effect by Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, Didier Drogba of Chelsea and Manchester City’s Robinho. This is Nike's 8th version of the popular boot.

Puma have released the third generation of the v-Konstrukt football boot, the v-Konstrukt III.

Incorporating a fresh, new design and in a gold, white and black colourway, the v-Konstrukt III should certainly stand out on the pitch and Puma insist that the high technical spec will provide the comfort and protection required for ultimate game performance.

Comfort is plus point being touted by Puma. The v-Konstrukt III football boot features premium full grain, supersoft leather and the Puma Aptolast which Puma say provides a glove like fit allowing the upper to perfectly mould to the foot, maximising player energy.

Our friends over at footy-boots revealed the thinking behind Reebok’s new Valde Pro football boot and show you some of the technical background which the company has released exclusively to the Footy-boots website.

Reebok has come up with the Valde, a revolutionary football boot with market first technology. The Reebok Valde has a rigid Power Unit (a carbon fibre insert) in the outsole and additional upper technology.

By improving the rigidity of both the upper and the outsole of the football boots, so that they flex in one direction only, thus reducing the loss of power, the player should be able to strike the ball more cleanly and with a great deal more force.
