The Nike Mercurial Dream Speed has been released – and holy hell, these things are beautiful.

Nike's latest Mercurial boots have already dropped in a blue/yellow/orange colourway, as worn by the brand's biggest names, including Jadon Sancho, Kai Havertz and Jack Grealish. But now, the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Cristiano Ronaldo have both worn a white/green/purple version – with both scoring in them this week.

The new boots are the latest in a long, long line of classic Mercurials, stretching all the way back to the 90s. With angular curves that resemble classic models and a volt green shade synonymous with Nike, these are some of the nicest Vapors ever.

The Elite boots are the ones that the players wear, just like the most expensive shirts that you can get on the market. These ones are best on firm ground and and with the sock-like material around the ankle, they help you plant your foot as you're running. Oh, and they look fantastic, don't they?

The cheaper versions of these beautiful boots, the Academy versions can be spotted most easily from the soles: these ones are volt green underneath, while the Elite versions are purple.

They're very similar, with the key differences just being in the detail and colour. If you're looking for a cost-effective choice for these beautiful Mercurials, this is the option for you.

If you only play on astroturf, the Academy TF boots are the ones you need, for the same price as the firm ground ones. 

These ones come with more of a rubber sole and still have the sock-like knitted material that wraps around the ankle.

Not everyone wants a football boot that's going to wrap around the ankle. These ones are your traditional Vapor boots.

The Vapor is slightly cheaper and just like the Superfly, it comes in an Elite and Academy version. Again, these ones are beautifully detailed with a purple sole.
