Nike released special edition boots for 2008 European Championships, inspired by two host countries Austria and Switzerland. Europe’s best players wore Special Edition Nike Tiempo Legend, Total 90 Laser II and Mercurial Vapor IV. The football boots worn during the 1954 World Cup held in Switzerland inspired the retro design of these boots.
Tiempo, T90 Laser and Mercurial Vapor had a unique color-way. These boots were iconic because Nike incorporated outsole plates in vivid blue and contrasted it with vintage soft chocolate brown upper. This colorway was a rare delight among bright and colorful football boots.
These boots were designed with state of the art technology. Total 90 Laser II featured shotshield technology, providing superior power and accuracy. The sweet spot of T90 Laser featured unique precision rings for optimum trajectory and distance control.
Tiempo Legend design featured ultimate touch and control experience. The Zoom Air technology provided responsive cushioning and comfort while the sole plate and studs gave the player ultimate grip for optimal traction.
Nike Mercurial Vapor IV was packed with innovation. It was designed with one thing in mind, ultra speed. Lightweight, weighing just 230 grams and the aerodynamic lace cover enhanced accuracy and touch. The boot featured patented vapor traction, which improved traction without comprising comfort.
Nike Euro 2008 boots were instant hit with their state of the art technology and insanely unique colorway. Nike brought back Euro 2008 boots, in 2018, on its 10-year anniversary. Released as Nike Premier 2, the boots feature same color-way as its iconic predecessor.
