Unique customized Mercurial Vapor X was presented to Belgian international Eden Hazard ahead of his club Chelsea FC's season finale against AFC Sunderland. There is no doubt that Eden Hazard has had an outstanding and exhilarating season. Claiming not only his first Barclays Premier League title, but also a pair of prestigious individual awards, Hazard proved himself to be one of the most exciting players currently gracing the English game.
To celebrate Nike Football has presented him with a unique pair of Mercurial Vapor X.
“This season has been incredible for me personally, the team, for the fans and my family. To have these special Nike Mercurial Vapor's made just for me to celebrate the end of the season and everything I and the team have achieved is a true honor, I love them,” said Eden Hazard.
Drawing inspiration from Hazard's trademark ability to electrify the game with pace, flair and trickery, the Nike Football design team created a white Mercurial Vapor X that illuminates through streaks of royal blue lightning bolts. On the medial side of each boot's upper the lightening bolts spell “Hazard”. The additional detailing makes this Mercurial Vapor X a boot that encapsulates Hazard’s personal story, style of play and accomplishments.
“Rien ne me touche” runs around the top of the crest. Translated as “Nothing can touch me”, the motto epitomizes Hazard's confidence, adventure and attacking enterprise that have lit up the Barclays Premier League this season.
Only one pair of these customized Mercurial Vapor X's have been made, presented to Hazard this weekend.
