following text from NIKE:

 

NIKE’s new speed control texture on the upper allows players to perform at speed
with enhanced friction that combines with a snug and responsive fit – a hallmark
of mercurial boots. the speed control texture wraps around the foot, giving the boot
friction when necessary without compromising on the soft touch the player requires.

 

the upper also locks down the foot and prevents unnecessary movement within the boot,
while a minimal and soft heel area maximizes comfort and therefore the performance
of those wearing them.

 

NIKE’s innovative all conditions control (ACC) technology further aids performance;
the special treatment now used on all NIKE boots ensures a consistent touch
whether playing in wet or dry weather.

traction is everything for the player who relies on explosive speed and who wears
the mercurial vapor IX. twin studs at the back allow for a quick release from the turf,
and the asymmetric design of the stud configuration delivers an explosive start.
highly responsive blades also allow for game-altering changes in direction at speed.

 

the mercurial vapor IX features a unique, lightweight plate, incorporating two different
pieces of glass fiber that increase flexibility and responsiveness, providing energy
return in the heat of the game.
